Selfie taking is fast becoming the biggest trend, but certainly not the last. As we live in the midst of its buzz maybe it’s time we recognise the power they hold. It may seem impossible to think of life by comparing it to taking selfies, but with the evolution of picture-taking on the rise, there’s no way you can’t begin to see how the two can’t be linked.
Here are some tips to guide you on your journey towards your selfie experience, and maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself.
Taking selfies requires you to be confident in yourself, so don’t be shy. But, remember there is a thin line between being self-aware and arrogance – don’t confuse confidence with being self-centred. Avoid coming across as cocky and vain, but simply express the feeling of self-assurance by believing in yourself.
LIVE IN THE MOMENT
Every person who takes a selfie must live in the moment. That’s the beauty of taking pictures – to have a record of the moment you experienced. So strive to be the person who fully enjoyed each moment. Don’t concern yourself with the past, especially if it was negative, and let tomorrow worry about itself. Simply enjoy the moment you’re in, right here, right now.
There has to be some amount of self-love when you’re take a selfie. But don’t limit loving yourself only for when you’re taking a selfie. Extend that love to other parts of your life. It’s often said that you can only receive love if you love yourself.
CLEAN OUT THE CLUTTER
It’s never a bad thing to filter your selfie or edit out the unnecessary bits so you can have a perfect picture. With that said, don’t be afraid to clear out anything you don’t need in your life – bad friends, clothes that don’t fit, or that same old hairstyle, get rid of it.
THINK BEFORE YOU SNAP
Every good selfie is taken with caution, so be careful of your actions. If you want people to perceive you as a delightful person you need to act like one. Be mindful of the outcomes that come from sharing stuff with your friends on social media. It may be easier said than done but the rewards you reap in turn will be worth it.
