It is exceedingly healthy for each of us to be comfortable in our bodies. It is fun to appreciate how our bodies look. It is a joy to know ourselves as attractive to other people.
A few years ago, a good friend suggested that I begin to tell myself, “I am Hot AND Sexy.” At the time, this seemed profoundly funny to me.
But also unfathomable. I had spent a lifetime thinking of myself as ugly, blah, blah, ungraceful, blah, blah and disabled, blah, blah.
Anything but Hot AND Sexy.
Do you ever feed yourself a whole bunch of negative self-talk like I did?
It is like eating your least favorite meal over and over again.
Sometimes, I found pain in how I imagined myself. But most of the time I just felt numb to my self-image. I felt like how I thought of my body wouldn’t change, so I simply resigned myself to feeling unattractive.
Now a few years later for the first time in my life, I feel, well, Hot AND Sexy.
Teaching myself to embody Hot AND Sexy has been daily work for me.
Here are some of the things that have helped:
- Smiling more
- Laughing more
- Making more small talk
- Taking the time to buy clothes I feel good in
- Highlighting my hair (One of my stylists calls this “Manlights”)
- Creating- writing Facebook posts, journaling, writing blogs
- Keeping my apartment clean (most of the time)
- Keeping my car clean (most of the the time)
- Wearing shorts more
- Going to yoga classes everyday
These are ten of the things that helped me feel Hot AND Sexy. They are fairly simple. The most important thing has been to do them consistently.
