Have a case of the ho-hums? Maybe it’s the winter slump (too many grey days and not enough Vitamin D) or it’s just been too long since you did something solely for yourself. It’s time to break the spell. Here are 7 small ways to get back on track. After all, feeling good and feeling sexy go hand-in-hand.
1. Indulge in the small stuff.
Whether it’s a mani/pedi or a long bath with candles, little pampering moments can go a long way. If nothing else, they’re a reminder that you deserve it. And confidence equals sexiness.
2. Slip on some high heels.
Pumps can give you a lift in more ways than one. Whether you wear them with jeans, a dress or lingerie, high heels will boost your sprits. Next step? Strut your stuff.
3. Exercise in nature.
Get endorphins pumping and you’ll feel better in an instant. These chemicals alter your mindset, refresh your senses and give you a burst of feel-good energy.
4. Repeat a mantra.
Sometimes you need to fake it ‘til you make it. And the best part? It works. Stand in front of a mirror and say nice things to yourself—all the things you’d say to a good friend or sister. For example: “I am beautiful. I am confident. I am loved.”
Laughter releases the good chemicals in your brain. Pull up YouTube or go to a comedy club for some guaranteed giggles. Smiling and laughing causes a ripple effect…next thing you know, you’ll feel back to your sexy self.
6. Switch things up.
Routines can be the enemy. Try something novel, like a cooking class (many are free at cooking stores) or a day trip to stimulate your mind, body and life.
7. Try new shapewear.
Create an hourglass shape with stunning shapers and lingerie. You’ll love the way you look. And a little lace never hurt anything either. Even if you keep it a secret, wearing a seductive corset under your clothes is a surefire way to feel sexier instantly.
