Here’s another interesting Eponym: SIDEBURN:
One general of the American Civil War had a mustache and some facial hair on the sides of his face. Interestingly, he shaved his chin but allowed his mustache and side hair to grow together in one connected mass. His name was Ambrose Burnside and his distinctive facial hair inspired the word sideburns

How to do it: Write down one thing you like about yourself. Keep your “like” safe in your pocket, wallet, or purse and take it out now and again to refine it. Also, write down one thing you dislike about yourself. Now, destroy the “dislike” with all the fires of hell! Shred it and dump it. Pro tip: doing this digitally doesn’t seem to work as well, so break out a real notepad.
