One Easy Way To Feel Beautiful in Only 5 Minutes a Day!

One Easy Way to Feel Beautiful in Less Than 5 Minutes a Day!! Honestly, that's all it takes! #selflove #loveyourbody #youarebeautiful

How often do you go through this life feeling less than beautiful? Chances are, it’s happening often. Women are so nit-picky of themselves these days, that it almost seems easier to put ourselves down than to raise ourselves up. Comparing ourselves to the latest magazine-stand celebrity or even our own friends. Feeling not good enough, not pretty enough, not skinny enough. Even though it doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, these are the types of habits that turn into low self-esteem.

So today is the day that you are going to start telling yourself that you are beautiful, and you are going to believe it!

I was listening to my favorite playlist full of happy music the other day, when I was completely inspired by this song, “Beautiful” by Lucy Schwartz. You guys. You’re going to love this song! Music is so powerful, and we’re going to make it work for us and our abilities to feel beautiful.

So this is what I want you to do.

Step 1: Go put on your favorite outfit. It could be just your underwear. A sexy hot dress your significant other loves you in. Your favorite heels. Red lipstick. Your sweatpants. Or if you don’t have anything you love at home, you could even go to a store to try something on in a private dressing room if you take your smartphone and headphones!

Step 2: Make sure no one’s home. There’s nothing that will make you feel more self-conscious than being walked in on while you’re gettin’ your self-love on. (oh my, that sounded a lot more naughty than this is going to be!) No but really, this is best when you can be completely confident that you’re alone.

Step 3: Get in front of a full-length mirror. Yes, you want to be able to admire your entire body!

Step 3: Turn on the tune! Hit play on the video below. You don’t need to be able to watch it. It was just the easiest way for me to share the song.

Step 4: Listen to the words. Dance. Sing along. Genuinely believe the words, “I’m feeling beautiful!”

Step 5: Take this awesome energy with you throughout the rest of your day.

I know this exercise may feel a little silly at first, especially if you’re not used to dancing in front of a mirror. If you really can’t bring yourself to do it, try going for a drive on a warm day with the windows down, blasting this song. See how much just the song itself lifts you up. The next step will be to get you in front of a mirror, really looking at yourself while hearing the lyrics. But just listening is a good place to start (and where I started).

Let’s Start a Conversation:

    Love this Holly! I think looking in the mirror and speaking truth to ourselves is so powerful! Thanks for sharing- I had never heard this song.

    Hello there, I’ve just read several of your posts and watched a few videos as well, and I have to say that my mood has turned a complete 180. Thank you for all of the positive energy! I’ve definitely needed it after this terribly long last two weeks… I’ve saved this blog in my favorites now so don’t be surprised if I pop up as a regular! 😀

    The outfit that makes me feel beautiful when I go out is a nice pair of blue jeans and any type of white long sleeve shirt/sweater. But when I go jogging in the morning, I feel beautiful in my sweat pants, baggy hoodie, and cap. I was wondering about why that outfit popped in my mind first and I think it’s because when I put that on and see myself in it, then I associate it with getting stronger and healthier and that leaves me feeling gorgeous. Hahah, well, thanks for all of the kind words and thoughts. You’ve made my day! Take care, Gina

      I made your day??? Well Genie, you have absolutely made mine! You are such a rock-star for coming here and leaving such kind words. I would totally high five you and make you a cocktail or a cupcake or whatever you wanted if I could!
      I completely understand feeling beautiful in your workout gear. I love getting into my gym clothes and feel so awesome in them. It’s like you could conquer the world!
      I sure hope I see you back here. You’ve put a perma-smile on my face today

    I love getting dressed up, but something as simple as a great pair of earrings or shoes can also do it for me. I do know that feeling beautiful is all in the head, though, Sometimes I can be dressed up to the nines but not feel beautiful because of how I am thinking. This is a great post. Thanks!

    This is a brilliant post. Thanks for your inspiring thoughts and for sharing the great music.

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could share this post at my weekly Say G’Day Saturday linky party. It has just started and this would be a fabulous addition. I also host a weekly Tuesday Tune link up for all things musical and it is still going on now.

    Best wishes for a wonderful weekend,
    Natasha in Oz
