At one time or another, we feel less confident than we should. Age, illness, hardships, and just bad circumstance can pull us down, but how do we help ourselves if we’re feeling a little inadequate. Here are a few tips to help start believing in yourself again.
Go To Bed When You’re Tired
When we force our bodies to power through when we’re overtired, we end up with a sub-par product, not to mention the late start our bodies receive for the upcoming day that will soon appear. The human brain and body shut down for a reason, and when that happens, we need to listen to those messages by going to bed. When we wake refreshed, we’re more equipped to handle the day thus raising our confidence.
Each Week Write a Goal You Want To Achieve
Even if you just want to clean out the fridge, organize your makeup drawer, run to groceries the store, or walk the dog, write it down, and make sure you work on accomplishing that goal all throughout the week so that when Sunday rolls around, you’ve accomplished something. Most of the time, when we complete a goal, we feel better. In turn, helps raises our confidence.
Compliment Yourself, Then Reflect on That Throughout The Day
Let’s say; it’s a pretty clothes day, a beautiful haircut, sexy shoes, or just a good-looking smile; compliment yourself, then reflect on that personal treasure throughout the day. Every person is unique, and beautiful in their own way. Time to celebrate your uniqueness, raising your perception of yourself, creating more self-esteem.
Whatever Brings You Joy, Take a Picture of it
If it’s the sunset that lit up the sky that evening, the flowers in the boutique’s window, your clean kitchen, the sunlight streaming through the window…. take a quick pic of it. Then when you’re feeling a little blue, revisit those happy moments and let them do what they do; lift your mood.
Reward Yourself On Friday Night
When we strive to make our lives better by creating goals, and then the struggles we faced to accomplish those goals…. we need a reward. It doesn’t need to be a Disneyland vacation, drinking heavily at the bar, or a social gathering. (Yet, if that’s your thing….. Then go for it!) But rewarding yourself could be as simple as eating your favorite frozen treat, reading the book you’ve been wanted to start, taking a long walk in the park, or a bubble bath with a glass of champagne. The key is to look forward to something each week. Allow your efforts to be revered.
Confidence is perception.
Be positive with your image and turn it into self-confidence.
