4 Ways To Feel Comfortable Within Your Own Skin


We always have these moments/days where we feel totally shit.

Of course we do, we're only human for doing so.

Whilst being away on holiday it got me to a lot of thinking, about me. Some days I'd feel perfectly comfortable, and the next I'd feel totally insecure.

I mean I feel like it back here at home too, but on holiday your spending most of your day in a bikini and showing off more skin when it comes to dressing up in the evening.

*This could be why Autumn/Winter is my favourite months, because you can hide under big chunky knitwear.*

However, whether your small and petite or small and curvy, or even tall and slim or tall and curvy..

We all have our insecurities and things we hate and like about our bodies.


Learn to accept yourself | Coming to accept yourself can be quite difficult. I mean there's things that I'd love to change about myself, have abs and have a thigh gap. But that just ain't me. I'm small, have no thigh gap and have rolls when I sit down. I want to start the gym, as I did before hand but soon lost interest. However, back when I did go to the gym - I felt so much better in myself. I don't want to go to the gym to loose weight exactly, I just want a better mind and just to feel more happy. I find exercising really helped any negative thoughts in my mind, and you always feel so much better after a good work out.

Don't be so strict with yourself | I mean how many times do we all consider going on a diet? I've tried many diets in the past, not all of them but I've had my share. Slimming World for example, it's a pretty easy diet to follow - where you can eat as much as you want really as long as it's fruit or veg and you can treat yourself to a Snickers a day and that's totally ok. However, it soon becomes boring. Instead of all these diets, just eat healthy but also treat yourself when you want to. If you're out on a meal - treat yourself to that New York Cheesecake because Cheesecake is the fricking best. However, have a balance and eat full 'proper' meals.

Stop comparing yourself to others | It's all great scrolling through Instagram, and saving photos to your phone for ambition of loosing weight and making yourself look like this person. However, your body is more likely to be totally different to their structure. I mean, I can't look at a tall/slim/big boobed women with a perky butt when I don't have any of that. That's where we end up totally making ourselves feel down about ourselves. It's so easy. Just focus on yourself, and focus on having a better mind set and feeling better and that way you'll see a happier you.

Don't focus on just the bad | I hate my teeth, they could be a little more straight. I hate my legs, they wobble when I'm driving over speed bumps. I hate my ass and hips, as they makes me look a whole lot bigger in photos. However, I love how long my hair has gotten recently. I love how every time I go to get my nails done they always comments on my nails being so healthy and strong. I love the size of my boobs because I can get away with a cute little bralets. There's always a positive out of the negatives, so focus on them.

It's not all that bad really is it?

Yes we're only human, but you only have one body and stop trying to make yourself look like someone else because they want to. If we all looked the same, I bet ya we'd all still be complaining.

It's all about your mind, and it's all about your happiness.

If you want to eat the cake do it, nobodies telling you - you can't. It's just you.

  1. I love these sorts of posts, I have to say I find it really difficult to not compare myself to other people whether it be in blogging, work or friendships, it's really hard. I actually find that I don't compare myself when it comes to looks but more on success which really takes a toll! I think it's so important to actually sit down and try and think of one positive thing about yourself that day! xx

    1. Totally! I think it's good to sit down and see what you can do to make it better yourself, instead of comparing yourself to someone else. Focusing on you is a lot more important than anything! Everyones lives are very different, and a lot of people only focus on the good over the online world and not the bad things. But comparing is something we all do! xx

  2. Oh Tay. This post is perfect. I get exactly what you mean and pretty much feel all those things too. I'm too scared to join a gym because I am so unfit/ unhealthy. But it's definitely good to focus on what you love about yourself. I'm sure other people are right there loving it too!

  3. I love this so much, it's so relatable as I'm sure we all feel this way from time to time and have good days and bad days. I used to go to the gym and I really want to get back into it, but I hate going as I'm so unfit/ unhealthy, so I have started working out at home as there are so many great apps and videos to follow. It's definitely good to start focusing more on the things you love about yourself instead of the negatives! You look gorgeous in the photos by the way, I am loving your jumpsuit xx

    1. Yes working at home is a really good way of doing what you want to do, but in the comfort of your own home! I feel like going to the gym can be a little scary, because you aren't so confident unlike those who go to the gym every day or every week. Thank you for reading gorgeous xx
