Does Beauty Really Make Us Happy?

Does Beauty Really Make Us HappyIf you want more happiness, you might wonder if beauty really makes people more happy? Read on to learn about how self love and a confidence in self appearance influences joy.

Many factors influence our happiness or mood: friendships, love, losses, stress, complexes, etc. Infinity of emotions is those that create or destroy our happiness in our day today.

In short, life situations alter our emotions and influence us in our daily lives.

If you’re new to my site, hi there. I’m an expert on habit formation. I wrote a book called Happy Habits.

In my research, I learned that a lot of happiness comes from doing habits of self care, self love and enjoying habits which are rooted in celebrating one’s passion and exploring one’s talents. In this article I will be sharing with you if doing habits related to feeling more attractive can make you feel happier.

Does Beauty Really Make Us Happy?

How many times have we heard or been told: “What a lovely face you have. Why are you still single? Or: “Your skin doesn’t look great lately.” Yikes! 

If our feelings of self confidence are not strong, we can feel hurt – and as if we are under inspection.

We need to own our sense of self and confidence in our attractiveness from the inside – and not seek outer validation.

When we feel good about ourselves – from the inside – we also give off a stronger aura of attractiveness. Our face can even glow more – when we feel good about who we are – from the inside.

I’m a big believer that attractiveness is a feeling – not a weight or age!

You don’t have to look like a super model to feel super confident in your skin!

Look at Amy Schumer – both in real life and in her movie “I Feel Pretty”!

In the movie Amy gets a clunk on the head which makes her suddenly see her once insecure self as beautiful. As a result, she stops carrying herself in a way which expresses insecurity. Instead Amy begins to carry herself as someone who feels like she’s a beauty and this makes her happy. This combination of self confidence in her appearance along with boosted happiness in who she is as a person – empowers her to become more beautiful to others. 

Although she’s the same weight and age,  because she boosted her inner confidence, suddenly everyone finds her far more appealing.

The message: Sexiness and beauty are about your inner feelings about yourself – not your weight or age!

Is There An Interconnectedness Between Happiness and Attractiveness?

The importance of aesthetics is essential, of course. Not only for physical appearance. But also for attaining a sense of well-being and confidence.

When you bother to put in the effort to work out or dress in nice clothes, you feel a stronger sense of inner satisfaction. These actions of self respect and self love wind up increasing our self respect and self love. When you know you’re taking good care of yourself, you just plain ol’ feel better about yourself – and that can be felt by others.

You definitely feel more of a pep in your step and saunter in your walk after you do something which improves your appearance like taking a yoga class, going for a run, changing your hairstyle, or doing cosmetic dental work at places like  Stunningly Beautiful Dentistry.

Find something to admire about yourself.

Yes, there is always something! 

We all have something beautiful that identifies us: eyes, hair, mouth, legs, eyelashes. We need to celebrate this aspect of our beauty so as to feel happy and confident in who we are.

A psychological trick: When you look in the mirror, focus on what you like the most about yourself. Do you like your eye shape? Your skin tone? Maybe you like your hair, legs or hands! There is always something physically that you like about yourself. Start to identify what you love, and enhance it further and focus on it.

When you look in the mirror and focus your gaze on what you like best, your brain lights up in the reward system area and automatically lifts your spirits.
