Activities and Tips to Boost Your Self-Esteem
Need some tips to boost your self-esteem?
I’m sure you’ve heard how important it is to have high self-esteem. While this may sound like something quite obvious, confidence is not something we’re all equipped with. Many challenges occur in childhood and life as an adult that can knock our self-esteem down a notch.
When it comes to finding a way to boost your self-esteem, it can be hard. It’s not easy to first admit that you need a little self-esteem boost and second, find a way to deal with it. Today I’m making self-esteem building easier and sharing tips that will help you on your mission to boost self-esteem and start feeling fabulous again.
Activities to Boost Your Self-Esteem
Make Yourself a Priority
The only time my self-esteem starts to waver is when I’m not putting myself at the top of my priority list. It’s easy to get stuck in the routine of taking care of others, but you must remember that you are the most important person in your life. The first step to boosting your self-esteem is to do something that encourages self-love and time away from your regularly scheduled responsibilities.
I’m telling you to literally put “YOU” in your calendar and make time every day to do something that helps rebuild that self-esteem or maintain that high level of self-esteem every day!
Stop Being a People Pleaser
Being a people pleaser may feel good, at first, but after years of being like this, you’ll quickly find that your self-esteem has diminished and your mental health is teetering into crazy mode. People pleasers are excellent, kindhearted people who neglect their own needs far too often. Recognize that you’re a people pleaser and start taking steps to get rid of this bad habit.
Make a list of things that you frequently say yes to but drain your mental health and energy. These are the things that you will start saying no to or delegating to other people.
Practice Positive Self Talk
Another activity you need to start doing in your daily life to boost your self-esteem is positive self talk. Make sure that you’re saying only good things about yourself. You may want to use daily affirmations or perhaps write little love notes to yourself so that you can remain focused on what your strengths are.
Practicing positive self talk will seem silly at first, but eventually, it will become a habit and you’ll start feeling more confident as you notice negative self talk has nearly disappeared.
Take a Walk
Yes, I said. Talking a walk does more than just provide you with some daily exercise, it helps boost your self-esteem. Consider using your lunch break as an excuse to take a little walk on your favorite nature trail or walk to work to help boost your confidence while your happy hormones get released from the exercise.
Just one brisk 30-minute walk per day has been proven to boost people’s confidence and help increase their physical health.
These are just some of the best activities you can start practicing as a means to boost your self-esteem. Whether you’re married, single, a parent or not a parent, these activities will make you someone that everyone wants to be around. You’ll stand up taller, smile more often, and feel happier with each new day when you start making your confidence a priority using my list of activities featured here today.
