We’ve all done it.
We’ve all looked in the mirror and picked ourselves apart, obsessed over things like hip-dips, receding hairlines and extra curves. But wouldn’t it be wonderful to look in the mirror and embrace what we find there, to finally fall in love with our reflection?
This month at TEA+, we will be working to achieve just that. Through sharing stories, tips and tricks for nurturing your self-esteem and building confidence, we hope to show you that, “whole life is a search for beauty. But, when the beauty is found inside, the search ends and a beautiful journey begins.” (Harshit Walia)
Let’s start that journey together.
Believe it or not, the way we feel about ourselves holds a lot of weight over the decisions and choices we make in our day to day lives. Our self-esteem actually dictates how we handle stressful situations, interact with other people and regulate our emotions. People with high self-esteem are more likely to seize opportunities and, therefore, achieve greater levels of success. They are more proactive, better communicators and take more confidence in sharing their ideas and experiences. By contrast, those with low self-esteem find it more difficult to set boundaries, be assertive and voice their opinion. Simply, being aware of your inner beauty is key to good health and wellbeing.
There are so many great things that you can do to embrace the beauty inside yourself, including practising self-care, nurturing your physical and mental health and learning how to redirect negative thoughts. Over the next four weeks, we will be looking further in-depth at these, as well as some other great ways to boost your confidence and get you feeling beautiful. And make sure to keep an eye on our social media platforms too, for all the fun ways you can get involved this month!
By the time March is over, our hope is that you will be able to stand in front of the mirror and be proud of what you see there.
