Have you ever heard of the idea of “fake it ’til you make it”? This concept deals with low confidence, and making up for it by acting as though you ARE indeed confident in yourself and your abilities. The exterior (how we dress, how we make up our surroundings) do have an impact on how we feel, and we can use those feelings to build up our positivism and confidence. Give yourself time to feel it completely, and you just may surprise yourself that looking good on the outside will lead to feeling more confident on the inside.
Have you ever woken up in a foul mood for some reason, and wanted to change it fast? If you look to your wardrobe to enliven your mood, you already know all about this one. You should have a few items that automatically make you feel better. It could be a brightly colored blouse, some pants with a funky pattern, or a favorite jacket from a dear friend. You may have a “lucky” piece of clothing that you just have to wear on first dates and job interviews and the like. The important thing is that it helps you in some way.
Do you spend much time being aware of what surrounds you? If your answer is “no”, you might want to change that. It definitely can have an impact on your mood, creativity level, and amount of stress you go through. If you notice some particular place brings you down, make an effort to stay away from this location. On the other hand, if a work space in your home or office isn’t serving you well, it’s time to make some adjustments. You can learn about feng shui and arrange your furniture, place items of particular colors around it, and have certain objects in the space for optimal benefit.
