You wake up one day and happen to glance in the mirror. To your amazement, you have no idea who the woman is staring back at you. You’ve gained some weight you’re not proud of, your hair is crying out for attention, and your skin is starting to reflect just how stressed out you are. You walk over to your closet to pick out an outfit for the day but quickly realize that outside of a few items for work, your wardrobe consists of nothing more than some oversized t-shirts and yoga pants.

You hate to say it, but somehow you’ve really let yourself go and it’s starting to weigh on you emotionally. If this scenario sounds familiar to you, it’s time for a change. A confidence makeover is all you need to start feeling better about yourself. Check out these confidence makeover tips below.

Start With Your Health

Both confidence and beauty come from within. No matter what you do to your exterior, if you’re not well physically or emotionally, it will eventually reflect on the outside. If you want to look and feel great going forward, you have to start with your health. This means making lifestyle changes that include eating better foods, exercising regularly, and getting good sleep.

You should also start identifying things in your life that have you emotionally overwhelmed and develop a plan to reduce or eliminate those things from your life. Whether it means creating a better routine for the family, getting your finances in order, going to counseling to work on your relationship, letting go of toxic friends and family, or working to leave a stressful work environment.

As you begin making habits of the above lifestyle changes, you’ll start to see a dramatic difference in your physical appearance and mood.

Try a New Do

Quick and easy is often the concept when doing your hair. The ponytail or messy-bun are often the go-to styles for moms who are always on the go. Switching things up, however, can really boost your confidence. Believe it or not, there are several hairstyles that look great but are also very easy to manage on a busy schedule.

Talk to your hairstylist to come up with some ideas that best suit your face shape, personal style, and lifestyle. Maybe you’ll get a protective hairstyle like braids. Want to embrace your natural curls? Consider a quick wash and go or a low fade. Perhaps you’d prefer a short pixie cut or a chin-length bob. If you really want to turn heads, you might even consider something bold like red, blonde, pink, purple, or green hair dye.

Updated Wardrobe

You’ve developed lifestyle habits to improve your physical and emotional health, you’ve got your new hairdo, now, it’s time to tackle that wardrobe. Whether your clothes are over-sized, outdated, or just plain worn down, you can easily revamp your personal style with a few wardrobe changes.

If you don’t have the financial means to replace everything in your closet, start with some common staples. A few white t-shirts and button-ups, a couple of pairs of skinny jeans, stylish flats, trendy athletic sneakers, a seasonal coat or jacket, a few sundresses, and a cardigan or blazer and you’re good to go. Try to stick to neutral and solid-colored items so that you can mix and match to create new outfits.

If you can, plan a shopping trip so that you can try things on. This way you can be sure that it actually fits and that you love how you look in it. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different clothes, shoes, and accessories to help identify your personal style.

It’s not uncommon for women to suffer from low self-confidence at times. If you’ve had one of the moments where you don’t recognize the woman in the mirror, it’s time for a confidence makeover. A healthier lifestyle, a new hairdo, and an updated wardrobe are just the things you need to look and feel good from the inside out.
