The beauty industry is a 95 billion dollar industry. Of course, there are different facets of it that bring in different amounts of money, but the trend goes to show that people on a broad spectrum are willing to spend a lot of money to make themselves look better.
People often try to put bandages on their problems. As far as the beauty industry goes, that’s all that it is. People buy makeup, skin care, hair products and perfume to cover up what it is they either don’t like about themselves, what they think needs improvement, or what they think will make them appear better to others.
Beauty products aren’t evil and there is no reason you should stop wearing makeup or putting gel in your hair, but the reality of the matter is that your body was designed to emanate beauty all its own. The products are made to make up for what it is life and our environment has taken away from us.
Everything you need is either in nature, or your body produces it naturally. When you feed your body what it needs, you will find that beauty radiates from within. With this being said, what are you doing to keep your body healthy? Are your hobbies ones that add to your beauty, or do they take away? Here are 3 surprising hobbies that make you glow:
Anything Nature Related
Do you realize that you were made to commune with the outdoors? Plants and trees and rocks and nature are a gift to you and you can be as much as a gift to them. Not to sound all weird, but don’t you feel how different your body and soul feels when you walk into the wilderness or when you’re standing on a mountain and seeing the world around you, pristine and untouched? Get outside and have hobbies that are in nature.
Take up hunting, settle in on your target, take a hike, explore the great unknown and feel your body change from the inside out. The more time you spend outside, the more you’ll start to glow. That’s a promise.
So maybe you’ve got a little stage fright…you can get over that. If you’re not sure you want to…you want to. If you want to glow and start radiating confidence in who you are, think about taking up a hobby in the performing arts. Audition for a play, take an acting class, learn an instrument, start to sing in front of people, and get coaching to make yourself better.
Life has a tendency to lock you up inside. Hard situations cause people to turn inward and get down on themselves. If you explore the performing arts, you’ll find how incredibly liberating they are. You’ll discover more about yourself in a moment on the stage than you will sitting on your couch zoning out to the television.
