You may have been on a pretty inspiring journey when it comes to your body confidence goals, but you’re unlikely to have done it all on your own. There will have been people along the way that helped you become the best version of yourself! And now, it might be time to give back. If you have a boyfriend, husband, or male friend who is suffering from body confidence issues, then there is a whole bunch of things that you can do for them. Just take a look below, and get them back to their shining best!
Not everyone has that intuitive feel of what’s going to look good, and what’s going to look terrible. And it’s something of a truism to say that this affects men more than women! If your boyfriend/husband/friend doesn’t know how to dress for their body shape, then go shopping with them. It’s amazing what a well-fitting pair of jeans and a new jumper can do for a person’s confidence. When they look in the mirror and think “wow, I actually really suit this,” then you’ll see them strutting down the high street with confidence.
Like clothes, our grooming routine – or lack of – has a subtle, but highly influential impact on our looks – and, by extension, how we feel about ourselves. If your boyfriend/husband/friend is still buying the same products they were buying when they were a teenager, then look at getting them some grooming gifts for their birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because. If they’ve got facial hair, then buy them some Admiral Grooming products; it’ll make a noticeable difference to the look and feel of their beard. You could use buy them fancy shower gel, and an aftershave that compliments their character and body scent.
Stop the Negative Talk
It’s hard to say what percentage of life is what happens to us, and what percentage is how we perceive things. It’s probably fifty/fifty, or more weighted towards our attitude. As such, how we talk to ourselves can have a huge impact on our lives. If you hear your male friend being all down on themselves, try and get them to not to that. Give them a compliment! Talk to them about how awesome they are. A positive attitude can take you a long way if you let it.
Finally, remember to shower your boyfriend/husband/friend with compliments (genuine ones, of course)! Everyone needs a bit of a boost from time to time, and it’s always sweet when it comes from loved ones.
