How to Actually Get it In When You Go Out
If you don’t care for yourself, how do you expect others to care for you? Set your priorities straight. Once you respect yourself enough to really be kind to your body on a daily basis; that confidence you need to, not just get it in, but to get anything you want will come. Confidence, confidence, confidence. Where does confidence come from? Feeding your body foods that work with it, not against it; moving your body, giving yourself a chance to use this beautiful machinery you were built with! Hearto my hints, and you are sure to go home happy.
The quite obvious; the physique. Ya, it’s hard to be confident when you look in the mirror and see a nice Santa Clause beer belly. Prescribe yourself a little lifestyle medicine! Diet and exercise everyday, baby. “Diet” does not mean, “go on a diet”. It’s simply what you eat. Be conscious of it. Recommendations are at least half your plate fresh fruits and vegetables, one quarter of the plate whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, bulgur wheat, barley), and one quarter, a clean source of protein (lean meats, beans, sprouts). The minimum exercise recommendation is 30 minutes of cardio at least 5 days of the week and 30 minutes of muscle conditioning at least 3 days of the week.
The apparently not so obvious; happiness. People want happiness. It’s universal. Nobody wants to be with somebody that’s begging him or her to take a pull or following them around nervously all night. Where do you get happiness?
1. You are what you eat.
First of all, we create our own emotions. It isn’t up to me, or that guy/girl you’re trying to get with to make you happy. Be someone vibrant and bright! Someone alive in the moment! Someone sustainably sweet! Someone that even has his or her own healing power to survive (antioxidants, fight off virus and disease)! Fresh fruits and vegetables all day, baby! Fresh fruits and vegetables take the energy straight from the sun and that energy synergistically gets absorbed and emulated. A brighter outlook always follows a brighter diet! Don’t believe me? I invite you to challenge that notion!
2. Endorphins are real!
Elle Woods was right. “Exercise causes endorphins. Endorphins make you happy; happy people just don’t kill their husbands!” Real life, guys. You are one work out away from a good mood.
An optimistic outlook on life goes a long way. People want that! Be the kind of person you would want to spend the night with. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather go home with somebody who was really present in the moment and enjoying their time. Either enjoying their time with me, or seeing them enjoy themselves from a distance, it’s captivating. When you see that confident, happy person, you just want a piece of that! Just relax, have fun; don’t try too hard! If you are having fun with yourself, than, more often than not, he/she will want to have more fun with you too. You always want what you can’t have; so show them how fun you are, how confident you are, and let the life force of that diet and exercise do it’s magic 😉
I believe you are good enough to get it in. Take better care of yourself, and you’ll believe it too. Have a great night! 😉
