There are many things that may necessitate shopping. You may need something, want something, or be purchasing a gift. There are also times when we shop for things we think we need or want, but the reality is that we didn’t need anything at all. No matter what the motivation was for the purchase, shopping is and always will be an essential part of life.
Every purchase we make has a direct impact on both our inner and outer beauty. Most people wouldn’t think of shopping that way, but it’s true. The most obvious purchases we make that impacts us inside and out is food. Food impacts our physical beauty in a negative way by filling us with unnecessary calories causing weight gain, and by filling us with pore-clogging oils that can lead to bad skin. On the other hand, food can also enhance our physical beauty. Eating in a healthful way helps maintain a trim figure, have glowing skin, shiny hair, and whiter teeth thanks to essential nutrients found in food.
Food also affects our inner beauty. Those who rely on food for emotional support may suffer from a lack of self-esteem. Others who are fortunate enough to be self-confident may exude their beauty and feel secure in the way they eat and the choices they make regarding nutrition.
Clothing is another obvious thing that we shop for that affects our beauty! With so many styles to choose from, a person can enhance what they have naturally and conceal what they don’t. Having the right fit for your specific figure can encourage you to feel beautiful. It’s no secret that when you feel beautiful you look more beautiful to others! Confidence should never be underestimated.
What about household items? You might be thinking how they could possibly affect inner and outer beauty. Day to day items can have an impact on how we feel about ourselves and how we look. Having nice things in your home that you enjoy will put a smile on your face. Feeling good about the way your home looks and finding comfort in your surroundings helps keep stress at bay. The less stressed you are, the prettier you will look! Being content with what you have and the things you provide for your family is definitely a sign of inner beauty.
Then there is the shopping that we do for others. Think of the last time you bought a gift, “just because” and not for a special occasion. Didn’t you feel great? Didn’t the person you bought it for feel great? Chances are you both smiled which enhanced your outer beauty. Chances are you both felt good on the inside too. Being generous and gracious are both beautiful traits that everyone should be so lucky to have!
No matter what you are shopping for, who you are shopping for, or what your reason for shopping is, let your inner and outer beauty shine through! Embrace the experience and get your money’s worth!
