Yesterday I held a brunch and tea for my business as an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. I love the diversity of my jobs, by the way–personal trainer in the morning, voice and piano teacher in the afternoon, Mary Kay “lady” in the evening and on weekends. I love having a hand in all of my respective interests.
At any rate, this got me thinking about how closely beauty can fall in line with health. We know that when we are healthy on the inside it will start to show on the outside. Sometimes, though, I think we forget that when we feel beautiful on the outside, we will want to make the inside match!
There is something about how feeling “pretty” helps us stay on track with healthy nutrition. Sometimes something as simple as a new haircut, manicure, or face mask makes us feel rejuvenated and confident in our beauty. When we’re feeling beautiful, we’re a lot less prone to wander from a healthy diet. Sure, maybe that beauty regimen comes with a small glass of red wine or a piece of chocolate, but even after that splurge, we’re feeling satisfied and content…and hopefully a little more “pretty.”
So next time you’re fighting the urge to stray from a healthy diet and eat something that your body will recognize as garbage, try treating yourself instead to a beauty regimen. Paint your nails, take a hot bath while listening to classical music, read a fun book while you mask your face, try a new hairstyle or a fun, fashionable outfit, or call me to come over and create a custom color look for your face (of course, I can also suggest some fabulous masks and at-home microdermabrasion treatments!). Above all, treat yourself to something that makes you feel as beautiful as you really are!
