Simple Beauty - 10 Tips that are Free and
It is simple to look and feel more beautiful
starting today. You can even put away your pocketbook because
these tips are free.
1. Smile... it will brighten your day and others around you
will feel your energy.
2. Stretch... cats know that total body stretch does wonders.
Follow their example and roll up slowly out of bed and stretch
gently. (For more tips on stretching here is a great book:
AM/ PM Stretch for Health.)
3. Exercise... at least 20 mins of any continuous activity
will boost your energy level and reduce bad stressors. You
don't even to pay a membership fee. The key is continuous
like a 20min walk or even mopping your floors. You will look
and feel better.
4. Drink water. No other liquid is quite like it. Clear your
system. 8 glasses are recommended daily. Your skin will radiate.
5. Rest... you need to take breaks during the day and sleep
at night. Takes breaks away from work space to keep fresh
and focused. Make sure you are getting sufficient sleep at
night since your body regenerates while you are sleeping.
If you are constantly letting your mind wonder make a conscious
decision to put away thoughts till morning. It is amazing
how good your subconscious mind listens to your conscious
mind (so be careful what you tell yourself)
6. Do good. When you do something for someone else without
expecting anything in return you benefit in ways unimaginable.
(the key is don't expect anything in return)
7. Exchange... the money you spend on junk food for food that
will enrich your body and soul. Start with a simple plan of
exchange. Because some think healthy foods cost more, find
out your spending pattern by making 2 lists:
. foods you like that are healthy that you normally don't
. foods you like that are "junk food" that you normally buy
calculate the cost of the 2nd list then use this amount to
fund your "healthy" purchase. (of course you have to say bye-bye
to the "junk food")
8. "Stop and smell the roses". Look for good in everything.
This is a toughie because most of us are "trained" to look
for faults, errors, shortcomings, defects, etc. Begin with
yourself. List all your assets (not just physical). Then realize
all the good in being you. Move on to other things around
you. Work on this consciously every day till it becomes a
habit. There is something good about everything and everyone.
Once you realize this you will be finding good everywhere
without even trying.
9. Learn... something new every day. Pick up a book. or search
online. Learn to do something you have always wanted to do.
You can even start for free by researching online. Search
the subject and start stimulating and enriching your mind
10. Reward yourself. Set financial and personal goals and
tag them with rewards for accomplishing them. (this one may
be something special you have always wanted to do. and not
necessarily a purchase.. But if you have done all the above
maybe go ahead and splurge a little. You deserve it!
