3 Ways to Develop Your Confidence and Feel Great

By on February 16, 2020

As we get older, many things change – our priorities, our energy levels, and our looks – to name but a few. Many women reach their 50’s and feel greater confidence than ever before. Life experience makes them more aware of what they do and, perhaps, do not want for their future. It also provides clarity as to what is and isn’t important. For many, on the other hand, it is a very fragile time of life, and it can be a struggle to know exactly where one fits in. 

You may still feel young but are, perhaps, struggling with the reflection you see in the mirror. During or after the menopause, many women gain a few extra pounds and don’t feel as confident as they did when they were younger. If you are feeling like you need a bit of a confidence boost, here are 3 things that may help.

More people than ever before are considering surgery, and there are more and more clinics all over the world performing them. From breast augmentation in a New York clinic to an FUE hair transplant in Toronto – both men and women are opting to have surgeries and enhancements carried out. Other more non-invasive treatments such as botox are very common and extremely popular. Botox involves paralyzing nerve endings to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and can make you look far younger. If you are considering having work done, speak to a trained professional who can talk you through the procedures, recovery times, and what they believe the results could look like.  

Get a new hairstyle

If you are still fashioning the hairstyle you had in your thirties, it might be time for a change. That’s not to say you shouldn’t have something modern and on-trend, of course – far from it. Changing your hairstyle can give you a real boost of confidence and make you feel and look great. There are many styles and techniques available these days, so your choices won’t be at all limited. Whether you want a choppy bob with blonde highlights or fancy a shorter style with autumnal accents, it’s good to have a play around with looks that might suit. Having fun with your hair will make you feel far more confident and could make you look years younger.

Practice mindfulness

Changing your mindset is probably one of the biggest ways to increase your confidence as our minds can easily play tricks on us. Whilst you might look in the mirror and focus on the turkey neck you detest or the hooded eyes you have grown to despise, it is very possibly your mind which is causing you to feel that way. Mindfulness techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, alter your thinking patterns, destroy untrue assumptions, and can help you turn a corner. With some hard work and professional guidance, you will learn techniques to help boost your confidence and love yourself. After all, life is too short to have hang-ups.
