A recent survey done by Real magazine has shown that only 3% of women in the UK are completely happy with their bodies. It also revealed that around 73% of them thought about their size or shape every single day, meaning the majority of women are unhappy with how they look. We are constantly being shown images of attractive, confident women on television, in magazines and in advertising all around us, so it is no surprise that a lot of us compare ourselves to these images of perfection, and why we often get frustrated at not being able to achieve it. With 84% of the surveys respondents admitting to dieting at some point in their lives, the majority of women questioned wanted to be slimmer, and some even stated they would resort to plastic surgery in order to lose weight. So with so many of the UK’s women unhappy with their body, we have some tips on how to become comfortable in your own skin. The first step to feeling more confident is to accept your body and the way you look. Understand that nobody is perfect and trying to achieve this is impossible and can only lead to feeling negative thoughts and feelings. Respect and focus on the things that you love about yourself and you will learn to love the things that you don’t. One way to ensure you stay healthy in your body and your mind is to keep active. Exercise is a proven mood enhancer and can give you a great confidence boost which will then reflect on how others see you. There are hundreds of ways to stay active which don’t cost any money. Jogging, walking and cycling are all guaranteed to boost your endorphins without affecting your bank balance and can help you to reduce stress, relieve pain and generally make you feel better about yourself. Feeling constantly self conscious and preoccupied with what others think about you, makes it hard to concentrate on just being yourself. However, others are not judging you as harshly as you think. Once you stop focussing on what people think then you can start asserting yourself in the way that you would like to. They will then see the confident, positive person that you truly are.
