8 ways to improve your self esteem

Hey readers,

self-esteem can really impact your everyday life and the way you feel about tousled. self-esteem is about the way you feel about yourself and the way you talk to yourself. 

Sometimes, it can be asked due to bad experiences and not having enough confidence to have the belief in yourself. On the other hand, if you have positive self-esteem it can help you grow as a person and boost you to take steps to do the things you want to do. 

8 ways to improve your self esteem

1. Be nice to yourself.

I know this concept of being nice to yourself can be hard but if you imagine speaking to another person I bet you wouldn't speak to them the way you speak to yourself. It is important to see that you have worth and get in the habit of seeing the positive in yourself. A way to get into this habit of being nice to yourself is by writing a list of positive things that have happened to you.

2. Celebrate the small stuff.

Sometimes it is the small stuff that is important and that should be celebrated. this habit gives you a boast and acknowledges your own self-worth. 

3. Reconise the positives.

It can be hard when you are so used to focusing on the negatives that you forget that there are always positives. Even if it is just one a day it is helpful to start thinking different. Try writing something down each day that is positive that you have done and then by the end of the month look back and amaze yourself at the positives that have happened.  

4. Lower expectations.

It is ok to lower your expectations especially if they are so high you aim for perfection. Let's face perfection is so unrealistic. Be kind to yourself it is ok to do well without being perfect. 

5. Do something kind for someone.

Doing something kind for someone can boost your self-esteem because the person is thankful for the help that you have offered. It is always nice to do something for someone else who can bring joy without wanting anything back. 

6. Change the scenery. 

Sometimes it is good to get away from your regular environment because it is something exciting and can lift your mood. This can help with feeling much more positive and the way you feel especially with yourself. 

7. Mistakes. 

Remember that mistakes happen to everyone and it is ok to make mistakes. Making mistakes doesn't mean you are a failure, life is always a bumpy ride and you have to take what you can from it and learn. 

8. Baby steps.

Sometimes we expect a lot from ourselves that we can get so hung up and potentially just give up altogether. That is why it is so important to appreciate the baby steps as they are key to help you grow and feel better about yourself. I always like to remember that slow and steady wins the race. As long as you are going in the right direction then should be all that is focused on.
