How to be more attractive: 15 rules to increase attraction

Even the most beautiful and successful people have off days, but if you're feeling bad about yourself more than you feel good, you might need a shift in perspective. Despite common thinking, feeling more attractive and desirable may have little to do with your outward appearance. We consulted scientific studies and spoke to relationship and dating experts to find simple lifestyle changes that you can make to appear more attractive both to yourself and others.

We're not just talking about exercise's effect on your body physically — exercise is a great way to take some time to get out your aggression, have some time for yourself, and release endorphins, a chemical that can improve your mood. A study by the University of Turku found that people who exercised reported an increase in confidence.

Getting some love from others might seem like the easiest way to boost your self image, but actually you might want to practice giving some love first. Talking up good traits about others will help you seem more appealing in their eyes and make you realize the good things about yourself, too.

It may seem silly, but repeating positive affirmations to yourself in the mirror or saying things that you like about yourself will help you validate those traits and value them in yourself. Taking time to actively notice positive qualities about yourself, whether external characteristics or internal skills and qualities, helps them become more salient to you.

When you spend time acknowledging these traits, you can experience them more fully. A study from the University of Illinois published in the "European Journal of Social Psychology" suggested that people who talked to themselves had higher job success and confidence.

Experiments showed that when people talked to themselves — in the same way that they would speak to a friend — it hyped them up. The study also showed that people injected more energy into saying the word "you" when referring to themselves. A study from the National Institutes of Health found that people who dwelled on negative aspects about themselves actually had a higher risk of self-doubt and may have a lower-rate of self-satisfaction. If you find yourself making negative statements about yourself, you need to pay close attention to why.

These types of statements can make you feel worse about yourself and take a toll on your self-image.

Psychologist Jodi De Luca recommends that people identify what is causing them to make these statements and eliminate the cause if they can. Once you identify the triggers of negative self-talk, you have a better chance of catching yourself, turning negative self-statements into positive ones, and even preventing them.

The weight of a toxic person in your life may be preventing you from feeling your best. A study in "The Journal of Ethics and Education" surveyed people who had a relationship in their life that exhibited traits of "estrangement, change, mistaken friendship, and false friendship. If there are people who are constantly putting you down, being rude to you, or are just bad influences on your self-esteem, do your best to cut those people out of your life or spend lesss time with them. More importantly, prioritize the people who spend their time supporting you and building you up.

This can instantly boost your confidence, De Luca said.

Laughing and joking can make you more at ease, so if you try and laugh off a small thing that would normally get under your skin, you can take some pressure off of yourself, which can make you see yourself in a positive light. It is important not to let others define you and to just be you. A study by the University of Kansas found that laughing together can increase attraction in couples. In the study, 51 pairs of people who didn't know each other talked; the more times a man tried to be funny and the more times a woman laughed at his jokes, the more likely she was romantically interested in him.

Additionally, the more the pair laughed together, the higher level of attraction they reported.
