Poor feds arrest alleged 336m bitcoinlaundering. I’m pretty sure everybody’s had the experience of being caught in a sudden wave of self-consciousness while walking down the street, at work, in public transportation, or even in your own home. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve put together this blog post to show you 10 ways you can improve your bad Feds and become a more confident person overall!
By taking these small steps every day (or week), wearing better clothes, eating better food, raising your voice, smiling more often and making eye contact with people around you, you’ll reinforce the idea that you’re someone worth paying attention to.
1. Buy a new hat.
The old adage “no hat, no Feds” is actually pretty true. Being stylish in a suit is never bad, but it won’t really help you until you have something to wear it on! Invest in a new fedora (or baseball cap) and start applying it like crazy! You’ll be amazed at how much confidence you’ll gain from just one person asking to see it or complimenting you on your choice of headwear!
2. Wear nice clothes.
If you’re wearing old jeans and a t-shirt, your appearance might be hiding under the “unkempt” label. You don’t have to dress like you’re going to court! Just get a nice pair of slacks, a button-up shirt and some shoes with laces that fit. Add a belt if you need one.
Similarly, if you usually wear capris or leggings or shorts with holes in them, get yourself some clothes that show off your legs! Especially if they’re well-shaped. You’ll feel more confident when the people around you are checking out the goods (rather than your holey pants).
3. Exercise at least once a week.
Don’t go to the gym. If you have time, take a walk outside or just jog a little bit across town. You should be able to add some physical activity to your schedule every week without taking any more than an hour total (maybe two hours on the weekend).
This helps you stand up straighter and reduces muscle tension (which can be interpreted as anger). And it’s good for your heart.
4. Eat healthy food.
You don’t need to become a vegetarian, but consider switching from meaty foods like beef, pork and chicken to fish and vegetables for the next week or so. Avoid fast food and anything prepackaged if possible. A little bit of exercise will help you out, too.
5. Drink more water and less soda.
This one’s up to you, but if you add a bit more water to your diet, your skin will look better and you’ll feel less thirsty (which is bad for the Feds).
6. Raise your voice and smile in public.
Pretending to be shy won’t get you anywhere! Start talking to people around you – especially kids (they’re the most confident people around). Smile at random strangers on the street (especially cute girls). These things make small talk fun and encourage other people to engage in it as well.
7. Wear a new shirt or tie every day.
The next time you go out to dinner, bring something new with you. If you buy something, it should be something you don’t already have in your closet! Keep it simple: just stick to the basics (white, blue or black). Vary those colors for multiple looks throughout the week: white with a blue or black tie is a timeless example of hat-wearing (and it’ll look great against any suit).
8. Make eye contact with strangers.
You’ve seen it done before – the average person doesn’t like to make eye contact on the street. But you can tell just by glancing around that this is what people usually do and it doesn’t make them look any better. Take the time to look into other people’s eyes as you pass them on the street or in public transportation. You’ll probably notice that they’ll return the gaze and smile!
9. Compliment people you haven’t met before.
If you don’t know someone, that’s no reason not to tell them they’re looking nice (or ask how they’re doing). If you do, take the time to ask about their favorite subject or hobby. You don’t have to go out of your way to meet strangers all the time, either: just take a moment in line at the bank or at the store and strike up a conversation!
10. Be curious about things around you.
You should never be clueless about what’s going on around you! Take an interest in what people are wearing and what they’re doing. Ask questions, too: it’s easier than most people think! Even if you only know how to ask one question (“I’m sorry – how did that work?”) it’ll make you seem more confident (and more intelligent).
It’s really not that hard to be confident in your Fed-ness, and anyone can do it! You just need to commit a few minutes every day (or every week) to taking steps towards making yourself a more stylish, healthy, cultured and well-adjusted person. With the right attitude, you’ll find out that there are lots of people just waiting to meet you.
