Tips for feeling good about your body in summer!

The ideal would be to tell you to give a fuck about everything, but we know full well that it is not necessarily so simple. We fundamentally love summer and all that it brings such as good moods, deserved rest, beautiful experiences and nice encounters. On the other hand, we know that it is a feared and sometimes formidable season for women. The heat, the beach, the sun lead us to undress. We reveal this body which is hidden all year round from the eyes of all. And we feel judged for what he is. We would like to put our stone in the building of self-confidence and the happiness of enjoying life rather than its appearance. Let's set off on the path to a summer where you are in your head and therefore in your body. The more you will be focused on you, your needs, your desires and your well-being, the more you will have a good time leaving aside the complexes. This article will therefore be jam-packed with great tips for you to thrive during this wonderful season.

Summer, resort season

The bathing suit test… The beginning of this test starts with the purchase of the bathing suit. The store's booth is cramped and the lights unflattering. In the mirror, your reflection is not highlighted. Some will avoid this moment by ordering online.

Then, whether it's swimming pool or sea bathing, you now have to go undress in front of others. It's time for comparisons. And it is often that of the observation and the feeling of failure. The others seem to have deployed more means than us to sport a lean and muscular body. This one has more beautiful breasts than mine. This one only looks at the very thin. And what will my husband think of me? He's going to physically compare me to other women and see what I'm not?

So much physical devaluation supported by social networks where filters and retouching suggest that the perfect body is not the one you have.


What if I stopped wasting my life

So you're going to find yourself lame, ugly and angry with yourself. Then you will decide to throw yourself into a restrictive diet with extended fitness sessions that are too trying to last.

To avoid this discomfort, some deprive themselves of summer. They refuse going out, events with friends, trysts and the beach.

What if we rationalized? We concede it to you, it is getting hotter and hotter in France. However, we are rarely in swimsuits all year round. This represents a handful of days when your feeling of shame feeds exclusively on your gaze. It's quite interesting to note that in other hot or tropical countries, women are more relaxed with their figure. Take Reunion Island, Brazil or Jamaica.

Every precious minute of summer that you refuse to live intensely will never be returned to you. And every summer becomes a wasted summer.

Tell yourself that you are not just a body. Your being, your singularity are not limited to your body. An identity is not reduced to a waistline or a pair of buttocks.

Believe us, physical artifice means nothing in the face of the many facets that make up an individual. Open your field of tolerance to others. We're sure you don't care much about other people's appearances. Well know that it is the same for them.

And that ultimately, we're all kind of in the same boat at that point.

The Mindset of the Optimist

So let's change the way we look at it. We have the annoying tendency to only put our finger on the negative and the problematic.

Insofar as you are not only a body, you are also a spirit, even a state of mind. It's about starting to nurture your self-esteem.

  • Have fun listing all your victories since your childhood. All those moments when you achieved something. Whether it's your awesome pizza recipe or a graduation.
  • List 3 qualities that characterize you
  • Also make a list of all your skills

It is imperative to come and highlight what works very well for you. This reinforces the personal sense of worth and self-esteem.

We tend to entrust a lot of things to our friends or family in order to find support in our suffering. However, when we talk about our body, we take the risk of receiving observations that will not help us. “But if you are pretty” or “You are fine the way you are” . These types of sentences tend to deepen the problem rather than temper it. Prefer to look into the subject with a specialist.

Organize your most beautiful summer

We offer you a first formidable solution. Take a look at your social networks and delete any accounts that challenge you too much . Clearly, unsubscribe from profiles that only show bodies rather than life. Decide to no longer be in contact with this source of constant comparison stress.

Want to go further? Also cut out visual news sources and catch up on the news through radio and podcasts. At first it may seem drastic, but it is terribly effective.

Do you dread the atmosphere of the beach and swimsuits? Choose more humble bathing places like rivers, waterfalls. In spas with swimming pools or thermal areas, you are often offered the use of a bathrobe to circulate in the establishment. This can be a help to enjoy the benefits of water while being more comfortable.

If wearing a swimsuit really makes you totally unfit, don't stay locked up. Concoct a schedule with great experiences.

By remaining isolated, you maintain the feeling of exclusion. And even if you are going with friends or family, explain that you prefer to go to the museum, enjoy a beautiful café terrace, go to the cinema, go hiking in the heart of Nature in an unusual place….

Do not deny yourself any activity that would do you good. It nurtures a sense of personal well-being.

Value her body like a temple

Don't want to show off your body? Certainly. But that's no reason to give it up.

We suggest that you choose to eat in order to do him good. This is a completely different dynamic than that of an impoverishing regime.

  • Choose colorful fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidant pigments. They are able to protect you from the UV rays of the sun, they give you a healthy glow in all circumstances and they act on oxidative stress and therefore aging.
  • Eat good fatty acids to protect your skin and promote a good mood, but also to maintain the proper functioning of your cardiovascular system . It happens on the side of fresh eggs, fatty fish and oilseeds.
  • Do a magnesium cure . We know that a lack of magnesium can lead to a slowing of venous return , water retention and the feeling of heavy legs . So, we do not hesitate with seafood, seaweed, dried fruits, raw cocoa but also legumes such as lentils. And in addition, magnesium has the function of relaxing the nervous system .

As soon as you decide to take time for the well-being of your body, actions are no longer efforts but a process. Your will is to do you good. Because a healthy, happy and positive spirit is more easily in a healthy body. In the idea of ​​a healthy body, we must understand a body to which we give multiple chances to move forward quietly.

The right nutrients, good sleep, moderate physical activity and above all moments of joy and laughter.

Be connected to your beauty

It means highlighting what makes you beautiful. We give you some tips so that you feel valued in all circumstances with easy to wear and elegant clothes.

  • The jumpsuit

Regardless of the sleeves, strapless or not, the jumpsuits always have a crazy class. They are found in very fluid and light materials. In town, with a pair of sneakers or sandals or in the evening, with a small heel, the jumpsuit suits all body types. 

  • The kaftan

This tunic dress always has a rather majestic fall. It allows you to arrive like Cleopatra at the beach and have a quiet drink afterwards. It is much more chic than a pareo. All you need is a nice strappy sandal, a pair of earrings, a lip gloss and presto, life is good.

  • The wrap dress

This dress is deemed to be the model that suits all women. The tied closure at the waist allows you to emphasize the curves without overdoing it. It enhances generous breasts, delicately emphasizes the waist and delicately rounds the buttocks.
