Having trouble feeling sexy in the midst of a crazy busy schedule? You’re not alone.
As women, we want to do it all—clean the house, take the kids to school, help with homework, make dinner, and make everyone happy.
Sometimes it can be difficult to feel sexy in the middle of our busy schedules.
You must first feel sexy on the inside, and then it radiates on the outside.
So, here are some quick and easy ways to shift your way of thinking and ignite your sexiness.
1. Schedule “Me Time”
I bet you are running, running, running, to get things done and forget to think about you. Now is the time to start putting yourself first, whether it is simply reading a book, getting a pedicure, having lunch with a friend, or taking a bath. Make sure you have some “Me Time” everyday, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. Feeling sexy all starts with you, so its super important to make yourself happy everyday.
2. Wear a smile
A smile goes a long way. It affects you and the people around you. It exudes confidence, self-esteem, decreases stress, and ignites your personal power. And, smiling is contagious. Smile even if you don’t feel like it. After a short time, smiling will put you in a better mood, make you feel sexier, and those around you will be happier too.
3. Get plenty of rest
Getting enough sleep is one of the most important ways to feel good about yourself. After a good night’s sleep (eight hours) you feel more energized, have mental clarity, and it boosts your immune system. Getting lots of good quality sleep even makes your memory stronger and increases your creativity. Your body rejuvenates between the hours of 10 and 2 so make sure you get to bed at a reasonable time.
4. Drink your greens either by juicing or using your blender
Drink your greens. Yes, you read that right. A quick morning green smoothie will give you tons of energy throughout the day, detoxify you, and will make your skin glow. Simply add a cup or two of water, a handful of your favorite greens, and some fruit. Blend them and drink.
5. Get dressed up
Why wait for a special occasion to wear your favorite dress? Get up everyday and get dressed up and ready to own your power. This goes for women working from home too. It doesn’t have to take long to get ready when you are in a rush. Set your clothes out the night before. When you take a couple of minutes to get dressed up you have a different level of confidence than when you just put on sweats and a T-shirt. You’ll feel sexier, have more self esteem, and your stress dwindles away.
