4 Simple Ways To Feel And Look Your Best

Looking and feeling good can be a challenge, especially during these uncertain times. Of course, it’s not just about staying healthy; many people are searching for ways to boost their self-confidence and mental health, which can be tricky.

Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to elevate your overall wellness, whether you’re staying at home or are planning a vacation once travel restrictions are lifted. The Frugal Grandmom presents four simple things you can do to get your mind and body into great shape.

Restore Your Hair

Our hair can lose its luster over the years due to a buildup of styling products or heat damage, and many women suffer from hair loss or breakage after years of coloring. The good news is, according to Mane Addicts, you can restore it and promote new hair growth by using a collagen supplement. Collagen has been shown to thicken and strengthen hair and can even protect the color as you get older, leaving you with lustrous locks and bolstered confidence. As with any supplement, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor before adding it to your routine.

Drink Some Water

Like your hair, your skin can become dulled and dry over time due to the elements, your skincare routine, and even the air inside your home. Many people don’t drink enough water, but eight glasses a day can restore your skin’s appearance for a youthful glow. Keep a tall, reusable water bottle with you throughout the day so you can keep track of how much you’re drinking, and make sure to raise your intake during hotter months or when working out. To keep things fresh and make it seem like less of a chore, Self suggests adding a calorie-free flavor to your water and giving it a little boost.

Boost Your Mental Health

Just as important as your physical well-being, your mental health could probably do with a boost from time to time as well. Take a look at your surroundings. Does your home contribute to positive vibes, or have you and your family members been dealing with tension, arguments, and anxiety?

If the latter is true, throw open some windows on a nice day and dust, clean, and declutter your space. This is an easy way to clear negativity and freshen things up a bit, especially if you and your loved ones have been in close proximity for a while during the pandemic.

Stay Active

Whether you’re focused on your physical or mental well-being, it’s crucial to stay active and move your body. Thirty minutes of physical activity every day can help you stay fit and boost your mood, helping to keep depression and anxiety at bay–especially if you can get outdoors.

Look for ways you can fit in a workout while making it fun, such as playing with the kids outside, taking the dog for a walk, or taking up a new activity or sport. Swimming is a fantastic way to stay in shape and get outdoors at the same time.

Practicing self-care is so important, whether it’s about the way you look or the way you feel. Often, the two go hand-in-hand, so keep this in mind as you plan out new strategies for your physical and mental health. The more you can boost your confidence and well-being, the easier it will be to find your best self.
