5 ways to be a wonder woman

We all know that woman who jumps out of bed and instantly looks glamorous yet subtly casual. Follow these tips and become your very own, real-life wonder woman:



Get a wonder woman glow

If you look great, you feel great and there’s nothing that makes you look better than a clear complexion and glowing, fresh skin.

To cut costs, ditch the branded products and make your own. Simple items from your fridge and cupboard will work wonders on dull or spotty skin.

Take a good dollop of natural yoghurt and apply to your face. Leave the yoghurt mask on for 20 minutes, and then wash off.

Another effective face mask is the honey and aspirin treatment. Crush two aspirins and add to one tablespoon of organic or manuka honey. Apply to your face and wash off after 20 minutes.

The aspirin contains beta-hydroxy, an ingredient that will refresh your skin.

Get a wonder woman job

If Monday’s make you feel sick with dread then it is time you got yourself a job you love. It is estimated that we will spend around 1800 hours at work each year. 1800!

A lot of women stay in jobs they dislike because they don’t really know what they want to do.

To figure out what career you’re best suited to make a top 10 list of things you really enjoy. It doesn’t matter if the things you like don’t seem work-related.

For example, if you like meeting with friends and talking through their problems, you could think about going on a counselling course. Even if you need to work hard to get new qualifications, be brave and do it because the rewards are worth it.

Get a wonder woman romance


If your boyfriend constantly lets you down and makes you unhappy seriously think about whether he’s worth it.

If your friend was dating him, what would you advise her? Although everyone deserves a Prince Charming your relationships are in your control and if it’s not working move on.

Life is too short. If you’re single and looking for the one then be open-minded

But before you look for a man make sure you are in a good place – are you happy, healthy and feeling confident?
Don’t rely on a man to get these things for you because they can’t. If you’re in a positive place you’ll also attract more positive guys.

Get wonder woman friends

As sad as it is the eternal promise of BFF doesn’t often work out. Friends move on, physically or emotionally, and it can be hard to find decent replacements.

To get a gal group you need to get out there. Go to any parties you’re invited to and when you’re there don’t stand like a lemon in the corner. Talk to people and mingle.
 
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people. If you’re not ready to break your BFF pact yet and would prefer to work on your relationships then the number one thing to do is be honest.

Women often find it difficult to be totally truthful to friends.

Get a wonder woman schedule

The clock is our enemy and the only way to battle it is to get organised. Begin by cutting down on time-consuming chores like cooking.

Make big batches of dinners when you have a free afternoon – like curries, chillies, soups and lasagnes – then freeze them. These can become healthy and quick ready meals.

Your next job is to make time for things you enjoy.If you want to read more or would love to learn a language, buy an audio CD or download a podcast that you can listen to on your commute.

Finally, cut out anything that you don’t get pleasure from – bad friends, useless TV shows, hobbies you now hate.

Time is far too precious to waste, so be a little selfish and only use your free time doing things you love.
