20 Ways To Boost Your Confidence

Confidence is an important aspect of our mental health and personal growth. There are situations or times when we lack a positive self image and struggle to see our strengths, here are my favourite ways for giving myself a positive confidence boost!

  1. Acknowledge your strengths !
  2. Accept compliments.
  3. Celebrate even the smallest accomplishments.
  4. Dress for success – take pride in your image and take time to put effort into yourself.
  5. Exercise– working out is great for letting off steam, and shifting the focus off negative energy plus you will feel great after!
  6. Treat yourself !
  7. Don’t make your problems the focus of conversation.
  8. Have alone time  – get to know yourself
  9. Change small habits slowly – outgrow your weaknesses.
  10. Record all that you are grateful for.
  11. Do something for the first time.
  12. Invest in your weakness, practice and prepare around areas that you are weak in  – knowledge is power!
  13. Acknowledge what makes you feel nourished and make sure you make time in your life to include those things.
  14. Don’t be hard on yourself – just because you don’t succeed in a situation doesn’t mean you gain nothing from it.
  15. Make sure your environment is free from anyone who puts you down or makes you feel small.
  16. Forget stereotypes – don’t restrict yourself to conform to a particular image or behaviour, if it isn’t you don’t force it embrace your originality!
  17. It’s ok to say no, you don’t need to please everyone at the expense of your own happiness.
  18. Stay realistic – someone’s opinion or view of you doesn’t have to be your reality.
  19. Respect yourself – the way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.
  20. Pump up your spirits – whether it’s listening to your favourite song, jumping on a trampoline or playing with your pets, take time to do something that makes your spirits soar.
