High self-esteem is a critical factor that can positively affect many areas of your life. On the other hand, if you have low self-esteem, it acts like a constant challenge . . . a hurdle you have to jump over each time you want to try something new, a constant force dragging you down.
While self-esteem can be difficult to change, it’s not impossible. I’ve found a few time-tested tips for improving your self-esteem, and feeling better and more positive about yourself on a daily basis. Here are a few ideas:
- Make a list of things you like about yourself – and refer back to it often. This list should include your successes and achievements, and your positive traits and qualities. The more you practice liking and accepting yourself, the more things you’ll be able to add to the list. I like that I’m a positive person, I like that my blog inspires people to get active everyday, I like that I have 2 college degrees, I like that I finished a Half-Marathon, I like that I’m close to my family, I like my legs.
- Surround yourself with people who are loving and accepting. Don’t let yourself get dragged down by the negative attitudes of others. Your true friends will like you the way you are. My family and close friends great supporters. You all always leave positive comments that motivate me to do better.
- Take care of yourself. Give yourself the care and attention you deserve, whether that means breaking a few bad habits, paying more attention to your physical health and appearance, or taking a break with some relaxing time alone. I usually work out at least 3 times week, and I take plenty of breaks, I love to travel everytime I get the opportunity.
- Do what you love. Find a way that you can shine, using your strengths and talents to the best of your abilities. Doing activities that you’re good at is one of the best ways to build self-confidence! (That’s why I blog, it personifes everything about me!)
High self-esteem is a powerful motivator and an important predictor of future success. You can improve your self-esteem.
