The hard truth is that confidence is a struggle for many people. If you do not feel good on the inside, it will show on the outside and vice versa. According to mentalhealth.gov, mental health includes our "emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.” Mental wellness is the positive state of mental well-being. Mental wellness and self-care is one of the keys to confidence.
We have connected and partnered with Sephora to extend a hand to women with self-care, and mental wellness. Sephora is a cosmetic brand and chain of beauty stores that offer different brands of cosmetics, fragrance, hair care, and skincare. Sephora partners with a variety of organizations to help individuals look and feel their best in order to tackle major life transitions.
It has been an honor for Vita Center Inc. to be chosen as an organization to partner with them. With Sephora Queens from Queen Center mall we have been able to help women monthly entering the workforce and finishing their careers with “Classes for Confidence. Vita women and team are filled with gratitude for the inspiration to be fearless and flawless!
Further, Vita Center Inc. will like to share a few steps to take in order to feel happier and healthier to reach your mental wellness goals. Here are just a few:
Go for a walk, it can be a long walk or just around the block. Ride your bike alone or go with a friend. Make a routine and go to the gym. Physical activity will help clear your mind and body!
Living around clutter can easily cause stress and anxiety. Take some time out of your day to tidy up and organize your house and workspace will help get rid of the clutter and create comfort.
Cut the negative people out of your life and steer away from negative thoughts. Negativity is a barrier that will prevent you in achieving your goals and pure happiness.
Life can get overwhelming and it is crucial to pause and breathe. You’re allowed to take a moment to yourself when things are overwhelming. You’ll get through it!
Wearing unwashed clothes and neglecting your hygiene and appearance will put you in an unhealthy state of mind. Lastly, but most importantly, put some effort into your hygiene and appearance. Take some time to wash your clothes and get some new ones. Do your hair and makeup before going out or just to stay at home. Looking your best will help you feel your best and put your best foot forward to achieve your goals!
Stay tuned for “Classes for Confidence" coming up in September, and our “Let’s Talk: Mental Health”3 Workshop happening in October. We would love to continue helping you reach your mental wellness goals.
