So, if you want that healthy glow to draw people to you, look no further!
Here are 10 tips to get and keep yourself shining:
1. Love what you do, and do what you love!
Above all, there is nothing more radiant than joy and happiness. Take some time to invest in your passions and follow your dreams.
2. Drink water
How much you ask? Your body weight divided by 2 in ounces. If you weigh 120 lbs, divide that by 2, and you will get 60 lbs. Now take 60 divide by 8 (1 cup = 8 ounces).
So that makes it at least 7.5 cups of water a day!
3. Walk away
Dare to walk away from people who deliberately put you down. Because there is nothing that will dull your glow more than negativity and unsupportive people.
Walking away is the best thing you can do for radiance and confidence.
4. Eat colors
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables with lots of colors. Chock full of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants, vegetables will give your skin plenty of radiance.
5. Avoid bad foods
Avoid sugar, deep fried foods, and processed foods. You probably already know that these foods create inflammation which causes your face and body to look puffy.
6. Exercise moderately
Exercise will get the circulation going and tone your muscles. However, too much of a good thing can make you look tired and depleted.
7. Manage stress
Stress is the main factor that makes us ill. Make sure that you’ve planned enough time for rest along with work.
While we are sleeping, our body repairs. So, lack of sleep can cause hormonal disruption. Not to mention, you’ll be dragging yourself around with tired listless energy.
Laughter really is the best form of medicine! Do you take time to watch funny video clips or socialize with people who make you laugh?
10. Ask yourself: ‘What refreshes me?’
It could be a bubble bath, a walk by the lake, or listening to your favourite playlist.
Whatever energizes you, do it more often!
