A common misconception is that looking and feeling your best requires time, money or luck. However, the truth is that you can look and feel your best without any of those things. Instead, you need to change four habits! In this article, we will discuss four habits that have been proven to keep people looking their best.


First, you should exercise. For most people, the biggest problem with looking and feeling their best is that they feel too tired to do anything about it! Try starting a regular workout routine from home or at your local gym if this sounds like you. It doesn’t have to be crazy intense cardio every day; even simple things such as taking walks throughout the week can make an enormous difference! Not only will working out get rid of fatigue by increasing blood flow, but it also helps release endorphins, making us happier in general (and therefore more likely to dress up)! Even if you start small (such as walking around your neighbourhood), exercising regularly does wonders for not only mood but skin quality!


Second, you should eat healthily. It is a common misconception that eating healthy means giving up all sweets and other yummy treats! The truth is that there are plenty of delicious foods out there that won’t ruin your waistline or make you sluggish. Many people report feeling more energetic after starting to add these natural energy boosters into their diet:

  • Green tea
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries

If it still seems overwhelming at first, try making smoothies with yogurt and fruit in the morning to boost your immune system while getting some protein for muscle strength! If this sounds like too much work, ask a friend who eats well if they could help you find recipes online (there are thousands available just by googling the phrase ‘healthy recipes’).


You should also groom your hair and face! This can seem like a hassle, but there are plenty of ways to simplify the process. For example, if you have facial hair such as a beard or moustache, try using an electric shaver instead of wasting time with razors every day (plus it will save your skin from razor burn); the world’s best barbers can help you too. If you don’t want to spend money on expensive products just yet, use coconut oil for shaving cream and substitute shampooing with baking soda and apple cider vinegar (which leaves your scalp feeling clean without stripping natural oils that protect against dryness).


Finally, you should get enough sleep! Getting a good night’s rest is one of the best ways to look and feel your best. For example, lack of quality sleep can lead to hormonal imbalances, which cause dull skin and more visible wrinkles (as well as fatigue). If this sounds like an issue for you, try using blackout curtains or an eye mask so that light doesn’t wake you up and set a regular bedtime alarm clock so that you don’t fall asleep later than intended due to sleeping too many times.

Looking and feeling your best doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. All you need is a little help from these simple habits.
