In order to be more ‘attractive.’ We have to love ourselves. Choosing to be positive will allow you to attract the right people into your life — people that make you happy and help you to learn and grow.There are many ways to treat yourself right that can make a visible difference on the outside as well as how wonderful you’ll feel on the inside. It all starts with the way you treat yourself.
1. Treat friendships as a priority
Friends don’t allow friendships grow aside. By nourishing your friendships, you practice the abilities necessary to maintain a happy romantic relationship as well. Friends make you to laugh and smiling is definitely an attractive habit to have
2. Live in the present moment
In a study of attractiveness in a speed-dating situation, women found men more attractive if they measured higher in mindfulness. This appears to only go one way for the sexes as men in the study did not find mindful women to be more attractive.
Mindfulness is peaceful self-awareness. It is the knowledge that in the present moment, everything is just as it should be. Mindfulness is attractive because we shift focus away from anxiety or depression while we focus on the now. Mindful people tend to be more emotionally balanced.
3. Connect with people
We are attracted to people like us, and we also find likeable people attractive. Being likeable is easy; be more interested in hearing about the other person than you are in telling about yourself.
Ask probing questions to understand the background behind people’s actions, preferences, and stories. What is this person like when they are at home alone? What are their fears and dreams?
4. Forgive and learn from mistakes
Self-improvement means constantly learning. Studies that question males and females about desirable traits in a mate show that ‘psychological traits are important in human mating, with both sexes valuing intelligence and kindness very highly.’
Intelligence doesn’t have to mean that you have a degree. You can demonstrate intelligence to a potential mate by learning from mistakes and handling it well when you make one. You can demonstrate self-kindness by forgiving yourself for making a mistake in the first place, then, show what you’ve learned by avoiding the mistake in the future.
5. Nourish yourself with excellent food And Enough Sleep
Nourishing your insides helps nourish your skin. Food is fuel for your body. Putting processed food into your body won’t help it function properly — it will eventually harm it. Choose fresh, healthy foods to fuel your body. Sleep is vital to your health and well-being. Not only does a good night’s rest rejuvenate your body, it keeps your skin looking healthy and your eyes clear. A well-rested person is able to cope with stress better.
6. Know your self worth
Be sure of your value. Be confident in the fact that you are intrinsically valuable as a human being and more so because of your character, intelligence and kind actions. It’s been said before that confidence is sexy, and self-love is the best way to build self-confidence.
Project your value with your head held high. Meet the gaze of others directly and say to yourself ‘I would make a great catch for the partner who is worthy of me.’ Be careful not cross the line into arrogance. Aim for an attitude of self-assurance.
