Don’t go by appearances!

We often feel that everyone else looks better and dresses better than us. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Most people — young or old, male or female — hate the way they look. But when were physical appearances ever the key to happiness? The mantra lies in when and how you stop putting yourself down and learn to love your appearances.
Some of the following ways can help achieve the desired results:
Think about what you do not like about your physical appearances. Consult your friends and family for their opinion to get a complete picture instead of relying only on what you believe. What might appear as an awful nose or lousy hair to you, may really do not matter to people who matter to you!
Remember that there’s absolutely nothing wrong in looking different from your friends. It would be boring if everyone looked the same.
Improve your posture. Standing straight makes a better first impression and you look more confident about yourself.
If you think a new wardrobe will improve your appearance, save up your pocket money and change your style.
Think about your good features. Highlight those when you put on make-up or choose clothes and accessories. Only when you start liking yourself will others like you too.
Take care of your body but don’t get obsessed with it. Eat healthy food and exercise regularly. You’ll look better and feel better too.
Last, always wear a smile. It does wonders to your appearance.
