Your natural features are your greatest assets. While clothing styles and choices are fine decorations, people feel the presence a fit body and a genuine smile. It’s a presence which reverberates outward and is felt by everyone in the room.
There’s a reason why hair is known as someone’s “crowning glory.” How you wear your hair says a lot about you. For men, short, clean-cut hair denotes a trim appearance, whereas a long, flowing hair denotes a wilder, freer spirit. For women, short hair describes efficiency and clear thinking, whereas long hair describes beauty and womanliness. For everyone, proper grooming is required, including clean, sweet-smelling hair.
Healthy skin shows a warm glow on darker skin and a healthy pink glow on lighter skin. When someone is healthy, well-fed, and has proper nutrition, their skin will show it. Always eat a wide variety of food so that your body has exposure to many different types of nutrients. Keep your skin clean and well cared-for, and it will show the person presence you desire to convey.
Ah, the smile. There is not much else which shows a person’s ability to communicate well with others like their smile. It is well known, but anecdotally and in scientific research, that people who smile more easily are far more popular. A good, clean, easy smile is part of your charisma, your charm. Many people don’t know how easy it is to have perfect oral hygiene. Brushing twice a day (gently and for a long time) and flossing once a day (gently) is all you need. Schedule professional cleanings three times a year, and your perfect, flawless oral hygiene is guaranteed. A couple of swishes of Listerine after lunch is also useful.
It takes very little to satisfy your body’s daily requirement for movement. Think about how easily and often children move around every day. This is the same kind and frequency of movement that adults need. Children instinctively move as often as their bodies tell them to. Adults have tuned this out in order to get specific tasks done in the moment. It’s important to regain this desire and instinct for movement. Simple things like walking around your office three or four times a day can give your body what it craves.
Your personal presence is part of your animal magnetism. Oh sure, dress and decorate as you desire, but remember that the basic underlying structure is your collection of natural features.
