Always Checking Yourself in the Mirror? Look Away & Read This Now!

If you’re checking yourself out thinking you look fantastic and swiftly continue to walk on that’s normal, fine and even healthy. However, if you're thinking you need to lose weight, you have a double chin, you look old, your hair is terrible, then you’re beating yourself up and are focused on unattainable perfection. “Our bodies will change and we will age,” says Dr. Sanam Hafeez, a NYC-based licensed clinical psychologist and founder and Clinical Director of Comprehensive Consultation Psychological Service. “This is a fact of life.” Dr. Hafeez says the following are all things that are beneficial to us:

  • exercising for as little as 20 minutes per day
  • eating healthily
  • walking
  • reading
  • meditation

“When we make how we feel top priority, we start to look good,” he says. “We’re more radiant, smiling, and have higher, more positive energy.”
