Make 2019 The Year of Confidence
Confidence doesn't come easily or naturally to everyone. We've all had our bumps in the road as we try to feel strong and happy about ourselves - mind, body and soul. If you're in need of a self-esteem makeover or just need new ways to up your confidence game, take these points and make 2019 your best year yet.
Keep in mind, these are just a few ways that you can transform your mindset, what works for some may not work for others. But it never hurts to try, especially when it comes to feeling confident!
Work on your self care game
With work, family and social obligations pulling you in a thousand different directions, you should always make sure you take time to look after yourself as well. Everyone's version of self care might be different, maybe it's a trip to hot yoga, or a hot bath and a glass (or bottle) of wine. Whatever it is that relaxes you and helps you unwind, make the time to do that at least once a week. We all need to decompress, so taking the time to recharge once a week will surely keep your spirits up and your soul happy.
Take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, how you want to feel, and set some goals to help you get there. Working towards something you've always wanted, whatever it may be, and the sense of accomplishment when you get there is the until booster. The more you achieve, the better you'll feel too, so don't stop at just one goal! Keep it up and keep the confidence high.
Be kind and generous
To yourself (obviously) but also and to others. It may just be in the form of a smile or a friendly conversation, whatever way you decide to be kind to others, it's guaranteed to be an self-esteem booster. One kind act can make a huge difference to someone’s day and it’s empowering to know that your actions matter while helping you focus on the positives in life.
Look the part
It doesn't take long for inner feelings of "blah" to manifest themselves on the outside. When you put an effort into your every day outfits, your hair, your skin, not only will people take notice and compliment you on it, but the feeling of looking good on the outside will make it's way inside too. Hit the mall, find the shapes, styles, colours that make you feel like a beautiful babe, get the new, bold hair cut or colour you've been thinking about, whatever it takes to make the outside bold and beautiful. Looking great, feels great and even if you don’t think you deserve to feel good, the truth is – you do!
Now that you have a few tips, kickstart your year and work hard to make it the most confident happy year of your life! Keep in mind self-esteem boosting isn't something that will happen over night. It's going to take dedication every day. However, when you get it right and start some good habits, you will see just how the shift improves your daily life, your mood, and your happiness.
