Beauty Tip Tuesday-June 8th

Positive thinking is attractive-

There is certainly something to be said about "The Secret", that is really no secret at all. By thinking positive about yourself, your health, and those around you, you can improve your overall well being.

Medical researchers have found links to the benefits of positive thought such as: Increased life span, decreased risk of depression, decreased stress levels, increased immunity, decreased risk of heart problems.

Let's take a good long look at ourselves in the mirror. Wash your face and pull the hair back. Stare at your eyes. Not at the lines around them, deep within your eyes. Smile. Don't look at your teeth and your gums, just your real smile. Step back, and look at your neck, shoulders, and the rest of your body. Keep smiling, a real smile. This is the person you are, whom everyone else sees everyday. The unique you that you are. When others see this person, think how much a difference you will make if you look at others with your smile, a positive impression, a better outlook of yourself and upon others.
Instead of spending too much time inside our head with scared and negative thoughts, that you may not realize reflects loudly outward to others. It shows through our eyes and our smile whether we want it to or not.

I made an observation a few weeks back while in Las Vegas. There couldn't be a better place, by the way, to people watch and see how they interact when looking for "companionship".
Something I noticed: A smiling, cheery woman, truly enjoying herself and opening up her mind to all that was going on around her, receiving constant attention from many men, attractive men to boot, and even other women on a friendly note. Then I watched a cloud of negative, bitter ladies, who kept their backs to most, spoke loudly and crudely, approached by fewer and quite unattractive, men. It was amazing to see the messages that were being sent out across a crowded club floor. Whether alcohol induced or not, we give off messages with our body language and most importantly with our eyes and smiles.
How beautiful a face can change when a happy thought envelopes the mind. The hundreds of muscles in our face are effected by stressors that can make all the difference in the shape of the lips, the height of the cheek bones, to the sweet curves around our eyes that can tell others whether we are feeling kind, angry, scared, sad, lonely, joyful, etc.

So the next time your'e "putting on your face", getting ready to meet new people, or even going on an interview, don't forget your positive thoughts, and take that close look at you once more and see how much more attractive you really are!
