Hello, friends! Natalie here 🙂 Some days you wake up feeling on top of the world, other days…not so much.
Confidence is a funny thing because it seems to come and go in waves. It’s something that we cultivate within ourselves but somehow it seems to vanish when we need it most. Luckily there are things we can do to help boost our confidence.
PUT ON YOUR FAVORITE OUTFIT
When we’re feeling down, the tendency is to reflect that in the way we present ourselves. Sometimes just putting on an awesome outfit can make all of the difference. This is something that has helped me time and time again. Even though I feel resistant to throwing on a cute dress when I’m feeling “bleh” about myself, I usually push myself to do it and experience a major shift if the way I see myself. Never underestimate the power of a good outfit!
TAKE EXTRA CARE OF YOURSELF
The tendency when we’re not feeling confident (especially about our bodies) is to treat ourselves poorly. We don’t feel motivated to eat food that nourishes us and sometimes we choose not to eat at all. We might skimp on our exercise routine or morning meditation because it feels like, “What’s the point?” But the fact is, that’s the most important time for you to take care of yourself! It’s easier to practice self-care when your feeling good, but when you’re feeling down it’s absolutely essential.
DO SOMETHING KIND FOR SOMEONE ELSE
Kindness creates confidence. When you do something kind for another person you will immediately feel a sense of confidence, because you’ve done something good. Whether it be brining flowers to your best friend at work, or just picking up something a stranger drops on the street, and small gesture of kindness is a step in the right direction. Turning your attention to being of service to others will help you stop thinking about what’s “wrong” with you and get you focused on something positive.
Next time you’re feeling less than stellar about yourself, try these three tips out! Remember, you always have the power to change your experience.
