How To Feel Sexy When You Definitely Don’t

We all have days when we’re not in love with our bodies and we’re feeling down on ourselves. At times like those, even the thought of feeling sexy can feel impossible and getting in the mood is the last thing on our minds. Sexologist Dr. Jess O’Reilly says the way you feel about your body can affect the way you feel about yourself in general, as well as your feelings about sex.

Fortunately, there are a lot of things you can do to get into a more body-positive — and all-around sexier — mental space. And these can help you get there:

  • Focus on what makes you feel good - Instead of thinking about how you look, turn your attention to how you feel. When you get dressed, try focusing on what makes you feel good, rather than just what you consider flattering.
  • Look for diverse imagery - Try to fill your social media feed with posts you actually like looking at, things you feel good about, from people you feel good about following. Get rid of the stuff that makes you feel bad about yourself and embrace the diversity of beauty that’s out there.
  • Move - Engaging in physical activity releases feel-good endorphins, plus when you dance, hike, stretch and run, you get to appreciate your body for all the amazing things it can do for you.
  • Get naked - Take time to celebrate your body and start by stripping down. Check yourself out in the mirror and remind yourself what YOU look like, appreciating your body, flaws and all.
  • Ease up on the body-based complaints - Challenge yourself to go a day, a week, then a month without complaining about your body. And try to shake off negative thoughts about your body when they come into your mind.
  • Bring sexy back - Engage with everything sexy by watching the sexiest movies, listening to songs that make you feel sexy and reading your favorite hot scene in a book. Be aware of how it all makes you feel and enjoy being in the sexy moment.
