Building Your Self Confidence This Summer

By Nsi Amah

Hey, Bronze Beauties! Summer came super fast and life gets super busy. Yes, I know sometimes you get so busy with work and vacation that you don’t have time to keep up with your weekly workouts. It’s okay, don’t beat yourself up just because you didn’t beat your weight goal or you didn’t stay as active as you like. There is always next summer and life happens.

Know your body type

It is important to know your body type and how it is shaped. Once you figure that out, you will know what looks good on you and what looks awful. The key here is to focus on what colors look best on your skin tone and what looks good on that sexy body. If you don’t like certain things about your body, fine, then dress in a way that won’t draw attention to it. Focus on the assets of your body that you like. For example, let’s say it’s your shoulders that you love. You should make your mission to get more off the shoulder tops or tube tops to show them off. It’s simple ways to feel good about yourself and your body.

Treat yourself

Now and again, you should treat yourself. Let’s be real; we work too hard and we don’t work enough on ourselves. Treat yourself to a mani/Pedi every two weeks, go to a spa day once a month, take yourself out on a date, etc. You have to find time to yourself and make it about you now and again. This will be good for you and your mental health, especially if you work at a stressful job.

Go out on with your girlfriends

Do spend some time out with your girlfriends, don’t keep yourself isolated. Keep yourself around healthy friendships that will love and support you. Your girlfriends should support you when times are rough, praise you when times are amazing and protect you when life is hitting you with too many bullets. Sometimes a simple brunch date or one Friday night drinking can boost your confidence. Trust me, girls know how to have fun without the guys.

Try a dating app

Dating websites or apps are an easy way to get to know men when you have a busy life. This is also helpful when your life doesn’t set yourself up to meet men naturally unless you make time to go out. Life is busy for a working woman, so that’s why these apps were invented. Going on dates now and again can bring your confidence up as well as help with getting to know men. Of course, be super safe and take your time. Don’t allow anyone to rush you into anything you are not comfortable with.

Before you meet with any guy online, you need to take some precautions. Let your closest friends know what’s going on. Tell them who this guy is, where you are going to meet, and even share your location with them if you have an iPhone. When you first meet them, meet them during the day or even for brunch. Don’t meet him for drinks just yet. Also, meet with him in an area or neighborhood you are familiar with. As long as you are safe, you can have fun and see what he is all about!
