how to boost self esteem

Confidence doesn’t come naturally for everyone. We all have moments in which we feel weak or down on ourselves. It happens. It’s what you do next that matters. If you feel as though your self-esteem needs a little makeover, take the new year as a turning point. There are many ways in which you can transform your mindset.

Here are some tips you can use that will help you to boost your self-esteem in no time:

Write your own life story

Your life is a story and you are the narrator. You get to frame things and see them exactly as you please. Right now, you might be caught in a negative cycle. You’re telling a story in which you’re the victim. Change things up. Make yourself the hero. When you think about your situation, try to put a positive spin on it. Tell the tale as though you were talking about someone else and not yourself. Once you learn this art (and it definitely is an art!), you will find that you start to feel a whole lot more confident in yourself.

Be kind to others (and yourself)

Are you kind to the people around you? When you lack self-esteem, it can be easy to lash out and say hurtful things to the people that matter the most. However, when you don’t treat people correctly, it has a knock-on effect. You may find that people react negatively toward you, which will only further hurt your sense of self-worth. Make a pledge to be altogether kinder to the people in your life. Compliment them on things that you find genuinely impressive and offer to help them when you can.

Work out for the right reasons

Starting a new gym regime? Make sure that you do it for all the right reasons. Learning to enjoy exercise is all about focusing on the many benefits that you gain from it. Research suggests that engaging in physical exercise could actually help to boost your self-esteem. The theory is that the more you are active in your day-to-day life, the happier, healthier, and more confident you will be. Whether it’s joining a dance class, hitting the treadmill, or joining a sports team, why not make 2019 the most active year yet?

Focus on your own goals

Since the new year is almost here, it’s time to start talking about your aims and targets for 2019. What are they? How can you reach them? Sometimes, we get caught up worrying about what other people are doing and how their lives are unfolding. Focusing on them only means that you will hold yourself back and fail. Instead, make sure that you pay attention to where your own life is headed and what you have to do to succeed.

Forgive your friends and family

Forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give someone and, in fact, yourself. If there are people in your life who have hurt you, now is the time to take the first step toward moving on. Forgive them. When you hold onto anger and hate, it festers inside of you. Before long, you will find that it’s all you can think about. That in itself is massively unhealthy. It has to stop. The moment that you choose forgiveness, you can start to move forward and live a lighter, happier, easier life. That’s a sure fire way to boost your self-esteem.

Improve your self-care game

Self-care is an essential part of modern life. You likely have obligations – work, family, and social ones – pulling you in a thousand different directions. While you need to honor them, you should also make sure that you take the time to look after number one as well. Your version of self-care and self-love is unique to you. One of the easiest ways to start out is to write down the things in life that make you the happiest. What brings you joy and helps you relax or unwind? You can use the list as your go-to when you need some time out.

The new year is perhaps the best time to make some positive changes in your life. Use our guide as some inspiration to help you do just that. Self-esteem building isn’t something that you can do overnight. It takes work and dedication every single day. However, when you get it right, you will see a strikingly huge shift in the way that you feel and how you present yourself. Get started today and improve your daily life!
