How to Get Summer Body Confidence

How to Get Summer Body Confidence

Summer body confidence

That time of year is fast approaching. Whilst we are counting down the hours to the longer days, we might also have that slightly sinking feeling in the back of our minds. We’ve spent the last few months snuggled up on the sofa, layer upon layer keeping us toasty warm. The athleisure fad has really taken hold and we have been happy roaming about in slouchy, not so spectacular, attire. Now it’s time to break out those bikinis and dust off the dresses, ready for sunnier times. So how do we feel about putting ourselves out there for all to see? Are we happy and confident in our bodies, or do we think they might require a little work? Being ‘Summer Body Ready’ is a state of mind. Your summer body confidence can largely come from within, maybe with a little help here and there. Let’s have a look at some of the ways to give it a boost – if you need it.

What does it mean to be Summer Body Ready?

This is a tricky one, it’s ambiguous because it can mean different things to different people. And who decides what is acceptable? Where’s the panel that decides whether you are ‘Summer Body Ready’ or not? What are the rules and who made them? The truth is, this is largely something that we have burdened ourselves with. The rise in social media images depicting only the picture perfect, the obsession with TV shows suggesting a model’s figure is normal and attainable by everyone, have done nothing to boost our summer body confidence.

How can I feel better about my body?

It’s easier said than done, but you could try to find confidence from other aspects of yourself. It doesn’t always have to be about your body – there’s a lot more to you than that. But it’s understandable that you feel the pressure when all you see is the world’s idea of perfection. Being able to accept yourself for who you are and how you look is not an option for everyone. If arming yourself with self-love doesn’t work and you are finding it difficult to feel the love for your body as it is, what can you do to find that summer body confidence?

Clothing

Cropped tops, swimsuits and skimpy dresses are great for a sunny day – if you feel happy wearing them that is. But there are plenty of options if you want to show a bit less flesh. Floaty, bo-ho skirts and dresses are en vogue at the moment, as are oversized shirts and loose fitting, wide legged trousers. You can still feel the sun on your back and the breeze in the air when you’re more covered up, and you’ll look the part too. Summer body ready comes in all shapes and sizes, and everyone can enjoy that time of year if they get savvy and prepared with their wardrobe.

How can I make changes?

If you really feel that you need to make changes to get summer body ready, there is action you can take, from subtle alterations to full on body overhauls. The important thing to remember is some things take longer than others. So, if you’re really serious about making bigger changes, you need to plan in advance to get your summer body ready. Creating a new diet or exercise regime has been the ‘go to’ method of getting summer body ready. But, thanks to a wave of before and after images swarming social media, the opportunity to opt for more invasive and permanent procedures continues to rise. You don’t need to look very far to see the results of minor changes to complete body transformations, using cosmetic procedures.

Should I try diet and exercise?

Many people take the looming summer and use it as a challenge. How can they change their lifestyle and make the most of what they already have? There is more choice when it comes to fruit and veg, and the longer evenings and lighter mornings make outdoor exercise easier to maintain. Try to establish a new lifestyle rather than create a short sharp shock to the system. You’ll be reaping the benefits for longer and giving your body a healthy boost at the same time.

Should I choose cosmetic surgery?

This is certainly one way to get summer body ready in a serious way. It’s not for everyone, but if you are considering more substantial treatments to get the results you want, it’s imperative that you do your research and only use reputable clinics. Enhance Medical Group, has performed thousands of successful procedures over the years. Due to the rise in programmes like ‘Love Island,’ we have found ourselves inundated with requests to help people get summer body ready in record time. From liposuction to breast augmentation, women are choosing this option as the best way to achieve the ‘Love Island’ look. It’s best to take these things at a steady pace. Don’t try to change too many things at the same time. Remember, these are cosmetic surgeries, and you will need to factor in your recovery time for each procedure you have. They do, of course, come at a cost, so careful consideration will be needed.

As with all changes we make to our lifestyle, the trick is to be realistic about our expectations. You will be able to make big changes to your body through a range of diet, exercise and cosmetic procedures. Indeed, some transformations are incredible. But keep in mind that you are an individual, and looking like the best version of yourself is so much better than trying to look like someone else. Being summer body ready means feeling comfortable and confident in yourself: whether that comes from making changes to your outward appearance, or dealing with issues from within, only you will know when you are ready to hit the beach. And chances are, when you get there, you’ll just lie back and enjoy the sun. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
