Celebrate Compliment Your Mirror Day
You may have noticed, that we at Choma go on A LOT about loving yourself. We wish it was something that could happen overnight but alas, this is a work in progress.
Step one is noticing how you speak yourself. We don’t mean in a crazy ‘I have conversations with the voices in my head’ kind of way, but rather the things you subconsciously tell yourself.
Like “I’m such an idiot!” or “I probably failed”. Maybe it’s “I’m too fat to wear that” or “That guy would never like me.” We’re all guilty of talking badly to ourselves. And very often we’re not even aware of the impact this negativity has on our confidence.
Slowly but surely these bad vibes chip away at your self-esteem until you truly believe that you’re not capable of greatness or worthy of love.
Well the negative natter stops here!
Today we challenge you to look in the mirror and compliment your reflection. Find a feature you love and say “Check out the sparkle in my eyes!” or “Damn, my smile is beautiful”. Speak to yourself as you would a friend. And compliment all good things about yourself – from the way you look, to your personality and the things you are good at. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, find the positive and learn to tell yourself just how fab you are.
Here are 5 more tips on how to compliment your mirror:
- Every time you judge yourself or think negatively about yourself, stop! Take a minute. Apologise to yourself and say something nice instead.
- Take five – 10 extra minutes every morning to get ready. If you look good, you feel confident, which makes you look even better. Boom!
- Stick some photos, quotes and pictures on your mirror that make you happy.
- Give yourself a pep talk before you walk out the door. “I am beautiful. I deserve the best. Today will be great!” is a good place to start.
- Focus on the positive - nobody is perfect but everyone has greatness inside of them. Make a list of all your great qualities and keep it close to remind yourself just how awesome you are.
Go on chomas, compliment your mirror today. Nobody else has to know.
