How Your Beauty Is Affected By Your Mental Health
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There is more to beauty than meets the eye. It is more than just how you look on the outside. Beauty has a lot to do with how you feel on the inside, as well. A lot of people are not aware of it, but their outer appearance often gives away how they feel. When you are stressed out, you tend to frown a lot. Frown lines can settle on your face and give you a tense and unhappy look. Your eyes look dull instead of bright and cheery. This can make you look very unattractive. If you are concerned about how your appearance is affected by your moods, this article may help you address those issues.

If you find yourself constantly feeling unhappy, sit down for a moment, and ask yourself why you are feeling this way. What are the things that are causing you to be unhappy? The major areas in anyone's life are usually work, family life, and social life. On a piece of paper, write down these three categories. Then look at them, one by one, to pinpoint anything that you are unhappy about.

For instance, look at your job situation to see if that has anything to do with it. Do you dislike your job and dread going to it everyday? How are your boss and colleagues? Are you overworked and feel tired when you come home?

Then, look at your family life. Look at your relationship with your spouse, your children and your parents. Is there anything in those relationships that is causing you to be unhappy?

Finally, look at your social life. Think about your friends in your social circle. Is there someone who is like a thorn in your side?

After you have written all the possible causes of your unhappiness, look at them one by one, and figure out a way to deal with each one. This will not be an easy task, and it can take a very long time. However, developing a plan to deal with your problems will help you feel more empowered about these situations because you are doing something about them. Allow yourself time to tackle each situation.

Surround yourself with people who support you and who can encourage you. They will give you positive energy to confront your problems. When you feel confident and energized, your body language changes. Instead of slumping forward feeling defeated in life, you will hold your head up higher and you body will straighten out. This all has a positive affect on your appearance.

When you start solving the problems in your life, you will feel like your life is heading toward improvement. This is something that you should feel good about. After you succeed in solving one problem, go and celebrate. Share your happiness with someone whom you love and trust. When you feel happier, you will get back that twinkle in your eye and that glow in your appearance. You will be more beautiful than you can ever imagine.
