The Mindful Beauty Secrets
In The Secrets of Mindful Beauty, we wanted to ensure the ‘beauty secrets’ we provided were underpinned by authentic mindfulness concepts to improve well-being. In the book, readers are gently guided to learn, develop, and maintain their skills in these areas. Each of the twenty Mindful Beauty Secrets provided utilises one or more of these life-enhancing concepts:
Increasing awareness of yourself and your surroundings is a key aspect of mindfulness. You’ll learn Mindful Beauty techniques to develop your attention and engage your senses through exercises such as visualization and focusing, as well as simple breathing and meditation practices. Face and body scanning will increase your consciousness and body-responsiveness and your felt-sense of self. You’ll become more mindful of your bodily sensations, thoughts and feelings as well as the everyday and natural world around you.
Accepting ourselves as we are, our bodies, minds and emotions, is the next step in mindfulness training. Mindful Beauty techniques include meditation and mirror-work to develop a non-judgmental stance and become more accepting and approving of how you look. Cognitive training methods will help with negative self-talk and boost your beauty and body esteem. You will develop a life-changing attitude shift toward yourself.
Mindfulness builds mental muscle. It’s a practice that has an initial pay-off and even better long term benefits, just like going to the gym. Mindful Beauty meditations that train your mind go hand in hand with physical training, including better beauty and self-care strategies, on-the spot stress reduction tools, affirmations and bad mood busters that exercise your body and mind.
Once you’re mindful of your physical, mental and emotional state, it’s easier to let go. Mindful Beauty relaxation techniques include stress-reduction practices, face and body muscle relaxation methods, tools to release physical and mental tension, as well as reviving beauty and self-care rituals that have an added benefit when carried out in a more mindful way. You’ll soon feel more calm and beautiful.
Loving-kindness is both a result and practice of mindfulness. Mindful Beauty techniques include contemplation and consciousness-raising that increase your self-care and compassion, and bring joy and gentleness into your everyday beauty routines. You’ll learn how to practice many acts of kindness toward yourself, and see who you are with a more loving gaze.
