Spring is here and it’s time to shed some layers of clothing as well as your winter beauty routine.
Everyone has been trapped inside and this means they’re ready to mingle! In order to look and feel your best and get back into the dating game, you need to go back to the basics with your self-care routine.
Self-care goes deeper than just makeup, it’s truly about caring for yourself from the inside out. If you feel great on the inside, you will look even better on the outside and in turn, attract a partner to be your best self with.
Below are some tips on how to get out of that winter funk and get your mind and body ready for spring dating season!
Fit In Some Fitness
It’s perfectly okay to admit you spent a majority of the winter months streaming your favorite television series because what else is there to do when it’s cold outside?
However, now is the time to get back into a fitness routine and get that blood flowing! Working not only burns calories but also releases endorphins that naturally put you in a better mood!
Whether you enjoy running outdoors or participating in a group class at a gym, getting your sweat on is beneficial in lots of ways. Just think, working up a sweat may lead you to meeting someone cute!
You’ve been trapped inside all winter but the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer which means more time for activities. Check your local coffee shop for a bulletin board full of things to do in your area. Hit up a concert or head to a brewery with some friends.
Chances are, there will be plenty of other singles at places like these which leaves lots of opportunity to spark a conversation with someone new! Getting back out after the cold season can be intimidating but just keep in mind you’re not the only one who’s back in the dating game!
Slay the Fashion Game
It’s time to put those bulky sweaters and flannels away and embrace your spring wardrobe! Take a trip to your favorite store(s) for a little shopping spree and add some new pieces to your collection. From crop tops to chiffon blouses and everything in between, adding some life to your closet is sure to add life to your dating game!
Side note, if you’ve found a guy and his style is so/so, bring him along on the shopping trip or give him a few suggestionsand send him on his way. With a little guidance, you’d be surprised to see what he’ll come back with!
Don’t Be Thirsty
No really, drink enough water! It’s recommended to drink eight, eight ounce glasses of water per day. This may sound like a lot, but with enough determination, it can be done!
Drinking water has tons of health benefits outside of just quenching your thirst. It has been said that not drinking enough water can cause your brain function to malfunction meaning you can’t think clearly. Drinking water also promotes clear skin, can boost your immune system and prevent headaches.
So in short, drinking enough water can actually help you to think more clearly when selecting your date night outfit and will aide in making sure that pesky cold doesn’t get in the way of a romantic night out with your new love interest!
Be True, Be You
Getting back into the dating game after what may’ve felt like the longest winter ever can be intimidating. You may feel a bit rusty but there’s one thing to remember: You are amazing! Staying true to yourself is one of the most important qualities you can posses. You don’t want to start a relationship with a false persona.
Although you may be eager to get back into a relationship, it’s important to keep in mind that whoever you meet should like you for you and that’s the best way to make things last!
