My Guide to Feeling Comfortable and Confident This Summer

13th Jun 2016

I’ve been enjoying the warmer weather of late, as many other people have. It might be a bit unpredictable, but that’s British summer for you. Although, it’s technically still spring. As usual, there’s a lot of stuff around about getting a beach body. Of course, the only essential thing to do to get your body beach-ready is to put it on a beach. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t need some help feeling comfortable in the summer. The heat can make you physically uncomfortable, especially if you’re not used to it. And trying to keep cool in skimpier clothes can mean you don’t feel very confident either. Here are some of my tips for feeling like a more comfortable and confident person this summer.

Feel Body Confident

Sometimes, you have to make things mind over matter. It can take a long time to learn to love your body, or even not to care what it looks like. But just because you won’t feel 100 percent body confident by July, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. It’s often a difficult thing to do, and it’s harder for some people than for others. You have to think about how you view your body and learn to treat it well. Perhaps more importantly, you need to realise that there are bigger things to worry about. Your attitude is more important than the way you look.

Lose Weight

It isn’t in any way essential to lose weight for summer. However, many people feel that it’s a good time to do it. You can set yourself a goal and a date, which might be when you go on holiday. There are no big events taking place, like Christmas. And it’s often easier to control your appetite in the heat. If you suffer as soon as the temperature gets above 18 degrees, losing weight can sometimes help you. It could be easier to keep cool after dropping some pounds. It’s not long until summer, but you could look at some methods for losing weight quickly. There are diets such as the Raspberry Ketone Diet or intense workouts you can try. Just remember you should be losing weight safely too.

Combat the Heat

If you’ve already found yourself getting too hot this year, you need ways to keep cool. In the UK, we’re often in danger of heatstroke because we aren’t used to warmer weather. Essential things to do include staying hydrated and lathering up with sunscreen when you’re out in the sun. If you have to, set reminders on your phone to do both of these things. Try to stay in the shade when you’re outside, and only move as much as you need to. Choose clothes that help to keep you cool, but that you feel comfortable in. If short shorts and a camisole show too much for you, a floaty top and trousers could stop you from overheating too. Sometimes its just nice to escape the sun completely and have 20 minutes indoors. Something I like to do is play a cheeky game of bingo at boomtownbingo.com before getting back out and enjoying the sun.

Everyone should feel comfortable in the summer, from being body confident to staying cool in the heat. Plan your days carefully so you always feel great – and don’t forget an umbrella, just in case.
