shutterstock_184661720When it comes to beauty, trends seem to focus on the outer appearance. From spring fashion tips to makeup must haves, we are surrounded by outer beauty themes.  That is why we would like to suggest a changing the focus on health and beauty. Rather than highlighting outer beauty concepts, let’s consider ways to nurture inner beauty. We are going to dive under the skin and concentrate on the things we do not see, like the importance of breathing. Hopefully, focusing on inner beauty will lead to a healthier and happier you, from the inside out!

There seems to be a major focus on being skinny these days. Instead of focusing on losing the pounds, why not focus on becoming fit? Strength training for example, is a great way to stay in shape and has a positive impact on your mental and emotional health. Strengthen your core to achieve more than just a six-pack and your body will thank you later. In addition, maintaining adequate strength and flexibility supports simple daily activities like getting in and out of bed. Having a strong core leads to better posture and less back pain which contribute to feeling beautiful.

Inner beauty also includes taking the time to take care of yourself. Annual doctor appointments are important and allow your inner beauty to shine through. Make yourself a priority and remember to schedule those pesky annual exams.

Good health and a sense of inner beauty can be as simple as remembering to breathe. Breathing may sound like an easy thing to do and an automatic function.  The truth is breathing affects virtually every part of shutterstock_167632622the body. It helps to reduce stress and calm the mind. So, breathing properly is very important.

You can also be healthier from the inside out by simply enjoying nutritious food. Having a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables affects your physicality and helps you  to stay healthy. A healthy diet not only fuels your body but it also gives you the nutrition you need to feel your best.

So, lets change the conversation on beauty trends, and focus more on inner beauty! Beauty is more than just skin deep! What does inner beauty mean to you?

  1. Hi,
    i agree you, i think that we must take care of our inside in the same way that we take care of our looks. But the are so few people that care what they eat or what they drink.

  2. Hello,
    I think that we live now in a superficial word. I notice that in this time the only thing that metter is how you dress, or how you look, but thay aren’t intrested how you think or how you what you do with you live. They only talk with you if you are very well dress and you wear makeup.
