Top Ten Ways to Feel Sexy (Without Spending a Lot)

 
Rate This

As most of us know, feeling good about ourselves means feeling sexier, too. Of course feeling sexy is not the be all and end all of self esteem, but, if you're part of the human race chances are you want to feel sexy and comfortable in your own skin even if you're not currently engaging in sexual activity with a partner.

Yes, the partner is intentional; I believe making love to and with ourselves counts as sexual activity.

Exercise is crucial to our sense of self worth, self image, and of course, our overall health and fitness level. For a breakdown of how, exactly, exercise can improve a person's ability to feel hot and sexy, the following link gives detailed explanations including endorphin rushes and confidence levels. http://longevity.about.com/od/lifelongfitness/a/exercise_sex.htm

It is with this in mind that I begin my Top Ten Ways to Feel Sexy with, yes, you called it:

1. Exercise - with the blood literally flowing to all areas of our bodies, we are energized, revitalized and simultaneously more relaxed. Irritability levels plummet and feelings of sensuality and joy begin to resurface.

2. Eat Something Delicious, But Only a Small Amount - I'm talking about taste, sensory delight, profound pleasure, but not going far enough to feel guilty, overly full or comatose.

3. Connect with Nature - the original source of our sexuality, the Earth itself abounds in sensual delights which are stimulating for us in the visual and auditory, olfactory and tactile. Taking a whole three or four hours outdoors can do wonders for your perspective making you feel good about life, love, sex, your body, yourself.

4. Get a Massage - doesn't have to be an expensive professional massage. This can be done by a friend or even for a few extra dollars at the pedicure place. Even a pedicure itself can access pressure points to bring you back into your body and help soothe you into a receptive, sexy state of mind.

5. Listen to Your Favorite Music and Dance To It - If no one is watching and that's the way you like it or, dance at a party with friends, strangers, or whomever you feel the most comfortable and sexy around.
