Here at Be U, we’re all about feeling good and feeling comfortable in your own skin.
We are all individuals with different ideals of what makes ourselves feel good. What makes me feel good may be completely different to what makes you feel good, and that’s okay.
We wanted to show you guys that it’s okay for different people to feel good about themselves in different ways.
To do this, we went around Falmouth and asked different people, both men and women, in different age groups, what makes them feel good about themselves.
This is what we got:
Jade Crowther 18-24 – sunshine, the people around me, the beach, working out, compliments
Alex Arnault-Ham 25-34 – the sea, relaxing, food, fishing, drawing
Millie O’Connor 18-24 – cheese, when I wake up from a nap and my hands feel heavy, a nice dress, a kiss from my boyfriend, laughing with my friends
Sam Taylor 18-24 – alcohol, sun, golf, football, sleeping
Chess Read 25-34 – food, going to the gym, my kids, laughing, chilling
Andrew Meyer 55-64 – travel, family, watching good TV, drinking champagne, friends
Amy Davis 25-34 – my daughter, going to the gym, having my lashes done, getting a tan, having a laugh with friends
