To be clear, we’re not referring to physical features here. It’s a mindset—read that again. Feeling “hot” is all about your mindset. One person can feel their hottest or most confident after accomplishing a big task or trying a new hobby. For others, it’s when they feel connected to others or simply wake up having an amazing hair day. It’s different for every single person, and that’s the beauty of what makes everybody on this planet truly unique.
Feeling hot—whatever that means to you—shifts your energy, which is the important thing here. When you feel on your A-game, you feel happy, you smile more (the kind of grin where you genuinely can’t stop smiling), you’re oozing with positive energy, and people pick up on this spirit. When you feel good about yourself, you make better decisions. When your vibes are high, you’re more open to putting yourself first (in the best way possible) and setting boundaries that are good for you and, as a result, create a path to live your best life. They say misery loves company (which is so true), and on the flip side, happy and optimistic people are just as contagious and a delight to be around. It’s a win-win for everyone. So yes, when you feel hot, your mindset is in a place to attract the life you want and deserve.
