The Importance Of Understanding Inner And Outer Beauty
Beauty is not something that can be defined easily or in only one way. Its perception has changed over time and we can observe different incarnations in art through history. Some things considered beautiful today may appall people from a few decades ago. But it’s often misinterpreted that artists and poets believe in only one beauty – the outer one. Visual aspect will give us the first impression of a person, that is unavoidable. Nevertheless, it’s the inner beauty that we will include in our admiration towards other people.
Inner vs. Outer Beauty
You will often find articles and discussions about what is more important and what will prevail. The truth is it’s not something that should be observed as being in an antagonistic relationship. Both are aspects of our personality and differ from person to person. What you may find beautiful may not be attractive to someone else. This is why there are so many amazing cultures and people in the world who are different in and out. However, it is quite easy to fall under the misconceptions of beauty and choose one over the other.
Outer and inner appearances are connected through our lifestyle and habits. The food we eat is one of the elements that affect us on both levels. It is a known fact that some foods can boost the production of mood chemicals in the brain and make us happier. Also, our weight and skin quality are in direct contact with our eating habits. Food with saturated fats and sugar will speed up aging and help us put on some weight. On the other hand, meals based only on vegetables and fruits will have to be improved with proteins and nutrients needed for normal functioning.
Exercising doesn’t have to be something burdening. You can choose from various options and find the one that suits you best. However, don’t neglect this aspect since it will boost the production of feel-good hormones and keep your body in an excellent shape. How toned you want to depend completely on you. The types of HIIT exercises will enhance your stamina and give you slightly toned body. Bodybuilding will help you gain the muscle mass, while yoga is good for posture and mobility. Even walks in the evening after dinner can be beneficial if you do them every day.
Cosmetic surgery and procedures don’t have to be a bad thing if done moderately and in a healthy way. A few touches here and there can really help you look younger or attractive, but it all depends on your opinion of yourself, after all. There are smaller means to add some features to your look and less intrusive than surgery. You can maintain skin health and appearance through regular treatments, as well.
Create a Positive Environment
A positive environment will help you accept yourself the way you are. The love we feel towards others is rewarding, but the greatest one of all is loving yourself. However, this takes a lot of work and self-esteem. Those are not so easily gained today when we all feel the constant scrutiny on the social media and in public. What you need to understand is the world is not that shallow or easily defined. We all notice a person’s eyes, hair, or height, but it’s not what we think about them in the end. Those who love you accept you just the way you are. So give yourself a break and try to see what they see and not some strangers you have in abundance in your life.
In the End
We matter as a whole. The certain aspects of our personality will define our outer beauty. And some outer details will shape us into the persons we are today. There is no discordance between the inner and outer beauty unless we believe so. And that is why appreciating life and carrying for each other is one of the messages you’ll often hear from your surroundings. The only thing we should change and criticize is the manner we behave towards one another and our planet, every other difference makes us uniquely beautiful.
