How does seeing a lovely sunset, an intricate multi-colored butterfly or a breathtaking piece of art make you feel? Uplifted, inspired, content, bursting with joy and love, linked, at peace?
Would you like more of that in your life?
If, like me, you feel renewed when you connect with attractiveness, here are some practical tips to bring more of it into your world:
Decide what you think is attractive and strive to bring it to life. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece; the performance of lovingly creating will fire up your beauty receptors. Drop any fastidiousness and fear and take a time to engage with your creativity.
Nature is awesome, with loveliness at every turn, no matter what the season or weather. Spend as much time as you can in it – sneak in a fine time walk, get up early and potter in the garden, take an alternative route to the park on the way home from work, plan pleasure trip at the weekend.
Look after yourself.
The more we’re frayed, tired and detached the less we have the energy and power to connect with the life-affirming and motivating. Take time to care for yourself, even if it’s just that long soak in the steam bath or a cat nap in the sun.
Nurture your individualism.
The more you feel you’re expressing your individual individuality, the more you’ll notice it in other people. Wear something that you love to effort. If you feel like singing in an unsuitable place, do it. Buy yourself that trinket you’ve seen that you love and put it in your sleeping quarters.
Beauty is an endless fountain of joy, stimulus, and connection that is there for you to blow into at any and every moment in your life. Connect with it whenever you can.
Look for it.
Attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder. Cultivate an eye that sees and a mind that appreciates attractiveness. Seek it on the journey to work, in the shape of the windows of the building you pass every day. Notice it in the method your colleague’s eyes sparkle when she’s talking about her daughter. Clock it in the intricate design of your bracelet as you shake someone’s hand. Soak it in from the elusive pattern you see in a cucumber as you slice it for dinner. Make it a rehearsal and it’ll grow.
Acknowledge the things that are attractive in your life – aloud to the people around you, via writing for the period of some downtime, or internally as you experience them. The more you do it, the more you’ll emphasize that beauty radar!
Where there is chaos, attractiveness has to fight to be noticed. Cut down the things you do, make space in your diary, and perfect out the clutter at home. Give attractiveness space to invade.
