Look Better, Feel Better

It can be hard to feel your best when you don’t look your best but it can be just as hard to look your best when you don’t feel your best. Here are seven tips that should help you look and feel your best no matter what.

Build Confidence

If you’re tired and worn out, you may find it hard to put any time at all into your appearance. When you haven’t put time into your appearance, it’s hard to feel confident, and in turn confidence is sexy. Even if you only have fifteen minutes to spend on your appearance, that’s better than nothing. Starting small is better than never starting at all, and building confidence is perhaps one of the most lasting ways to help yourself look and feel better.

Highlight Your Best Features

A quick way to put time into your appearance and boost your confidence is by strategically highlighting your best features. If you have beautiful eyes, an eyelash perm kit can help you emphasize and draw attention to that. Certain makeup styles will highlight good bone structure. Certain colors will bring out the tone of your skin or the color of your eyes or hair. If you have a narrow waist, you can choose outfits that accentuate that.

Dress the Body You Have

On that subject, dress for the body you have right now. If you’re trying to lose weight, that’s great! When you succeed, you can buy new clothes for your new look, but there’s no sense in wearing clothes that don’t fit or putting off buying clothes you need based on the fact that you’re planning to lose weight or get in shape some day. Buy clothes when you need them, and buy clothes that fit. Any body can look fabulous, if only it’s dressed appropriately.

Take Time For Yourself

Dressing appropriately, highlighting your best features, and building your confidence is all about taking time for yourself, and that is what really matters. When you don’t take time for yourself, you subconsciously tell yourself that you’re not important. It’s hard to look good and feel good if you don’t think you matter.

Practice Self-Care

Taking time for yourself is a form of self-care, but it isn’t the only form of self-care. There are lots of ways to take care of yourself and lots of ways to practice self-care. Setting boundaries with work and making time for friends is just as important as indulging in a spa day or practicing mindfulness. Only you will know what kind of self-care works best for you.

Develop Personal Style

Knowing yourself also means expressing yourself. Looking good by someone else’s standards isn’t as important as looking good by your own standards. Think about the impression you want to create, but also about how you want to stand out from the crowd. A sense of personal flair is what will elevate your style from the everyday to the extraordinary. Style isn’t just about clothes; it’s also about how you carry yourself, how you do your hair and makeup, even how you talk. Style is, to a certain degree, performative, but it’s more important to be self-expressive.

Have Fun

This may seem like a long to-do list of things you already don’t have time or energy to do, but it’s more of a list of helpful suggestions to help you brainstorm your own list. If this becomes yet another task, another set of chores to do, it won’t really make you feel better about yourself, and you’ll have a tough time maintaining it. So make sure, while you’re taking time for yourself, that you’re also enjoying yourself. A self-care routine that you enjoy is a self-care routine that’s easy to maintain.

It’s important to remember that even if you’re working from home or a stay-at-home parent, looking your best can help you feel better, and feeling better helps you look your best. It’s about doing whatever you can to create and maintain a positive cycle that will improve your life.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
