Every single person has had times in their lives when they have lacked confidence. If you are currently experiencing this, try not to stress, there are some easy things you can do to build your confidence little by little every day and get you back to your best self.
A positive mindset, even if it is forced at first, works wonders for helping you feel more confident. Make an effort to give yourself positive reinforcement every day. Look in the mirror and tell yourself positive things. You will be surprised at how much better this will make you feel over time. Try phrases like “I am confident, I am strong, I am worthy” and see what a difference they make for your outlook on life.
Smiling has also been proven to improve your mood, again, even if it is forced. Our brains decide that if we are using the smiling muscles, we must be happy, so even if you look crazy, try wearing a big grin wherever you go. You will feel better in no time.
The next thing you can do is surround yourself with people who make you feel loved. With good people around you available to support you, you will feel much better about getting through whatever it is you have to get through. Keep friends that uplift you and make you feel happy close and ignore the ones who bring you down.
The final thing you can do is make you love yourself. Wear clothes that you know you look great in, treat yourself to a self-care day, and do the things that you genuinely enjoy doing in order to see your confidence grow. If you take the time to pamper yourself and show yourself you are deserving of love, you will be ready to take on the world feeling 100% confident.
