4 Tips for Being More Comfortable in Your Own Skin
Personal image and self confidence are massive issues these days, and there are so many people who seem to struggle with this including yours truly. It is important to be who you are and think hard about what you want to achieve these days. There are so many things that play a role in this process especially now with the sway of social media, and you need to make sure you are confident and comfortable with who you are and how you feel.
Of course, this is easier said than done, and there are a lot of things that can weigh upon your self-confidence. Many of us spend far too much time focused on what other people think about us, as well as comparing ourselves with people in the papers, magazines, and all across social media – aka people who don’t look like real women. I say this from experience because even now I find myself creeping back into the comparison game which is both unhealthy and unrealistic. As long as you are doing this, you will never be happy with who you are, which ultimately means you need to become more comfortable with your own personal image – because it’s the only one you’ve got and it’s beautiful already!
Set Yourself Life Goals
You need to make sure you think carefully about the world you live in (the influences, your inspirations, the people surrounding you), and the goals you have for your life. There are a lot of things that you might want to achieve, and the best thing you can do is to focus on trying to make things better for yourself. You can even start off small if you want to, as long as you are setting yourself goals to try to achieve. If you do this, you have a focus, and you will become more confident over time.
Embrace Who You Are
Make sure you do as much as you can to embrace who you are and what you are going to be doing. In many ways, this is the hardest part, but it is so essential to try to be proud of the person you are, and this is something you need to make sure you focus on. There are a lot of things that play a part in self confidence, and being comfortable with your own body image whether you’re tall/short, curvy/slim, etc.
Get off Social Media
Social media plays such a dominant role in society these days, but that’s not always a positive thing – even for someone whose career is rooted in such. In fact, when we spend too much time on social media, we can often wind up making too many comparisons with other people and becoming jealous as a result. It is important that you not spend too much time doing this, and that’s why it is a good idea to get off social media and clear your head. I take the weekends and sometimes even weekdays away from my social media channels to mentally ground myself.
Exercise is something a lot of us struggle with, but it is actually really important when it comes to improving the way you feel about yourself. Keeping active and exercising can clear your mind, make your body feel good, and help keep you in shape. This is why it is so important to make sure you are getting exercise as and when you can these days.
If you can follow these tiny steps, you should have no issues with starting to be able to be more confident and comfortable with who you are. This is most likely an extended process and one that needs focus if you want to improve your life. There are a lot of things that can play a role in helping with this, and it is so important that you get this right.

Getting off social media I feel like is the best way we can get comfortable in our own skin. Because we aren’t putting energy towards others. Great post!

Taking social media breaks has been so key in me not comparing myself to people online. At first it makes me me feel like I’m missing out, but then I realize everything is still the same.

I couldn’t agree more with taking a break from social media. I think it can do more to harm a woman’s self esteem than all the glossy image magazines of the last century.

These photos are so cute! I love the white theme, and the bright bag!

These are great tips, especially the one on getting off social media. I know for me, I only put my best foot forward on social media but that’s only what I look like 15% of the time and not realistic of how I look the rest of the time!
October 25, 2018 @ 12:04 pm
These are such amazing tips! I truly feel this world would be such a better place if everyone just embraced their differences and loved what is unique about themselves!
