Increasing your self-confidence
It can be common to experience moments in your life when you don’t feel confident about yourself. Negative thoughts can affect your mental health and believing in your abilities. However taking a few steps to increase your self-confidence can help you feel better about yourself and enable you to achieve your goals.
Here are a few things you can do to boost your self-confidence:
Identifying negative thoughts and replacing them with positive thoughts can make a big difference with your self-confidence. Focusing on your strengths, rather than your weaknesses, can help you change the way you view yourself.
Say no more often
Lacking self-confidence can result in saying yes to situations that you are not comfortable with. Learning to confidently say no instead is important for your self-care and wellbeing.
Practice good habits
Exercise and a healthy diet can have a positive effect on your physical and mental wellbeing. Exercise also releases endorphins, which are “feel good” hormones that can regulate your mood and reduce your stress levels.1
Change your posture
Posture can influence your mental and physiological well-being. A posture of slumped shoulders and your head down can be associated with feeling sad or low. However studies have shown that an upright posture can instantly boost your mood and increase your level of self-confidence.2
Surround yourself with positive people
Surrounding yourself with positive people that encourage you in your ups and downs can increase your self-confidence. Negative people often lower your mood instead, which can hurt your self-esteem.
