When thinking about your sense of well-being and self-image, sometimes, it’s an inside job and other times, there are external changes that can be made to improve your appearance.

In this article, we explore different ways to feel better about yourself.

Volunteer to Remind Yourself to Be Grateful

Volunteering has a long history of being just as rewarding for the people being given assistance as to the people offering it. It feels good to help others.

In these days of Instagram, it’s too easy to feel inadequate with beautiful people only showing their best side on their IG accounts. By volunteering, we’re reminded that the world is bigger than us and our insecurities. It teaches that being grateful for what you have helps you to feel better about yourself.

Take Steps to Maintain a Positive Self-Image

In some cultures, people tend to not hold back. They blurt out whatever they’re thinking and don’t consider whether your feelings will get hurt. Being around these types of people every day, it’s difficult to feel good about yourself if you’re constantly being criticised.

If you feel like you’re being dragged down emotionally by people you know, it’s time to do something about that. If it’s a work colleague, take them to one side and ask them to keep their opinions to themselves. With family, you may have to be mindful of who the negative ones are and intentionally spend less time with them. With friends, it might be necessary to think about which ones are good for your future life and those that drag you down.

Ultimately, you need people around you who are positive about life. While a little constructive criticism is useful every now and again, unsolicited advice is not. Often, it is just other people feeling lousy and trying to transfer their low mood onto you. Sometimes, it’s necessary to step away from them to stay positive and protect your self-image.

Making a Positive Change to Get a Younger-Looking Face

There’s no getting around the fact that faces age over time. Skin just doesn’t stay as elastic. It sags downwards and wrinkles up. When you’ve had enough of that and make-up isn’t covering it up enough, then it’s time to consider making some permanent changes.

Thinking about getting a facelift Bangkok is one way to go. With many facelifts, it takes off 5-10 years off once the operation has been completed and the face has had time to fully heal. The results don’t stop the aging process over the following years, but it certainly may give you a younger-looking appearance for now.

A balance has to be found for how you see yourself. Some people have a very distorted self-image. It doesn’t matter what anyone says, they don’t feel attractive. Other times, a car accident or birth deformity can benefit from plastic surgery to improve the physical appearance. At the end of the day, though, we’ve still got to be happy within ourselves, which requires self-care to get right.
