7. Surround Yourself With Positivity
When we surround ourselves with negative thoughts, negative people and negative situations of course the outcome isn’t going to be great. Take a step back. Evaluate what are the things or people in your life who don’t have a positive impact on your habits and self-esteem.
When we surround ourselves with good people, it’s not only confidence building but it helps us be happier as a person. Overall improving our self-esteem.
6. Switch Up Your Playlist
Many of us have our earphones plugged in, but have you really thought about how your choice of music is effecting you? Even if you don’t listen to Coldplay all day and night, listening to the same tracks day-in day-out can have a negative effect on you.
Take advantage of the power of music and switch up your playlist. Playing music which makes you feel better boosts your self-esteem more than you would think! Put together a playlist of music that makes you feel good! Or give your brain a break and listen to some yoga or meditation music to help you relax.
5. Give Yourself Time To Reflect
We all have busy lives, whether it be parenthood, work or school. But taking some time out to reflect and meditate can seriously boost your self esteem and build your confidence. You don’t have to be a zen master or have dreadlocks to participate in meditation. It’s benefits are wonderfully confidence building and it’s been scientifically proven if you don’t believe me *winky face*.
Meditation can be done just about anywhere too. But if you’re a first-timer I’d recommend doing it at home. If you don’t have a yoga mat, no worries, just get comfortable on your bed or couch, and do some guided meditation. Guided meditation is designed to be confidence building and boost your self-esteem.
4. Stay Away From Spending Hours On Social Media
Spending hours on social media can be poisonous for our self esteem. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending hours scrolling on Instagram, talking with my friends on Facebook, watching videos of cats knocking objects of tables on Youtube. But it’s good to take a break.
The infamous problem with social media is that a lot of people use it as a way to make their life seem better than it actually is. That girl you see on Instagram in a bikini on the beach in Bali probably took 100 photos just to get that one perfect photo. That person on Facebook in the perfect relationship may actually not be that happy. It’s easy to let this make us question our own lives. So log off for a while each day.
3. Do Something You Are Good At
We’re all good at something. Spending time doing something you’re good at is a great way to boost your self esteem! It’s a key way to learn to love yourself. It can be anything, from knitting to rollerblading! What’s important is that the more you do this the more you’re self esteem will build.
2. Read Affirmations To Yourself
Reading healing and positive affirmations to yourself is a great confidence building exercise to help boost your self-esteem. It’s a small, yet powerful way to not only help you learn to love yourself, but give you that sense of purpose also. You can recite or read affirmations just about anywhere, like with meditation.
