Grooming yourself can be a major confidence boost, as you look good and make yourself feel good. Being mindful while grooming can also make you feel calm, and immerse yourself in the feeling that you are nurturing a better version of yourself. It can also increase your self-esteem, which can be seen as similar to confidence, but you feel good about yourself.
When I start my day with a grooming routine, it makes me feel as though I’m prepared to take on the day and any challenges that come with it.
It really gives me a little time to myself. To really focus on what's happening. Me! I feel very important in the process because I'm also getting pretty. My mental health is improved in the sense that I feel better about myself
Grooming helps you feel refreshed. It's a cleansing ritual which helps you feel in control – a groomed and well-kept exterior can help your mind feel energised and tidy too.
When I take the time to groom myself each morning I'm presenting myself for the day. It's my time I've given myself in my chaos, I have 3 boys that I get ready as well as myself. It helps me mentally prepare for the day, calm my mind and nerves before I walk out the door into the public. As well as say any affirmations to myself or even play a few of my favorite songs to help boost my mood. Also taking the time knowing I brushed my hair,teeth, washed my face, putting on Deodorant and making sure I looked clean helps my anxiety after I step out the door going into the public of the workforce. Small things can build up if your work environment puts you with people all day long, and knowing that you did these things will help build your confidence, self appreciation and esteem.
It's been scientifically proven that the more we look at someone and the more we live good moments with someone more attached and love we feel for them. The more you look at yourself in the mirror, the more you learn to look and appreciate yourself.
