If you’ve feeling a bit low lately, you may be looking for a ways to make yourself feel more confident. So if you’re looking for a bit of a pick me up, these ideas might be just what you need.
First things first, you need to think positively about whatever is causing you to feel unconfident. What good thing can come out of thinking negatively? Remember that reality is perception. So when you feel confident, you are, and there is a reason for that! If you feel like your life is falling apart around you, think about the good parts of your life and what steps you are going to make things better. There is always a silver lining and you can do whatever you put your mind to. You’re in control of your own life!
Have Professional Photographs Taken of You
If something relating to how you look is causing you to feel less confident, first of all you need to stop focusing on things you don’t like so much about yourself and focus on things that you do like. Book a professional photography experience at the likes of Venture Studios and ask the photography to accentuate the good things you like about yourself. If you feel at your most confident around your family or friends, get them to come along and be in the photographs with you but make sure you are in the centre of the photograph.
When we work out, we generally feel better about ourselves and look better. When we work out we release endorphin which gives us more energy, makes us more productive and even get a better night’s sleep. Not only this, working out can make us healthier and live longer. Only 30 minutes a day is all you need to maintain a healthy weight. You can learn about healthy eating and exercise at the NHS website.
Do Something you’re Good At
Everyone is good at something. It might be something similar to cleaning, cooking, giving advice or a particular sports or craft. You know your good at it and people remind you that you are too. When we do something that we are good at, we get a sense of pride and accomplishment – confidence can stem from that. It’s also something that you can share with others. Teach people you love a new skill and that will make you even prouder that someone is asking for your help.
Be True to who you are
It can be difficult to be confident in yourself for who you are when you are trying to be someone you’re not. You have to constantly remind yourself of who you are trying to be and that can be exhausting. Why try and be someone you’re not? You’ll never have confidence as you are putting a mask on almost, for the real you. It’s much easier and more fulfilling to just be you. Trust in yourself to do your own things and be confident about how you express yourself and the decisions you make.
