Whether you have had your heart broken, lost your loved one to illness or you have just come out of a relationship, you may have experienced a decline in your self-esteem or a low sense of confidence. If you are in need of a fast and effective confidence makeover, following these easy tips may help:
There is nothing sexier than a beaming smile. Smiling will lift your spirits and is scientifically proven to relieve stress by allowing your brain to produce endorphins. Laughter is the best medicine for low self-esteem and best of all, it’s free. Why don’t you get out and do things with the people that make you laugh, watch a funny movie or go and see a comedy act?
Stand up straight
When you walk down the street, stand tall and don’t slouch. Throw those shoulders back and hold your head up high. Not only does it make other people notice you, but studies show that looking up can immediately improve your mood.
Change One Thing About Your Look
It doesn’t need to be a big change, maybe dye your hair, or buy a new shirt. To make a big statement you don’t have to spend lots of money or go all out. Even subtle things like changing the way you wear your hair or trying a new perfume or aftershave can make a big difference to the way you feel. You don’t have to change everything about your look, but one or two updates can attract many compliments that will make you feel great. And remember when you receive a compliment, make sure you accept it gracefully!
Stop a bad habit
Aim to stop smoking, fidgeting or to stop biting your nails. A bad habit can take up your time, and when you stop, you’ll have some free time on your hands. This means you can make space for something new and exciting or have more time to spend on something you already love to do.
Stop caring about what other people think of you
Don’t spend another moment caring about what others think of you. Your only care is to know what you think of yourself and make sure that you give yourself approval all the time. Remember that you are great as you are, warts and all and as long as you are happy with yourself and your actions, that’s all that matters.
