Every now and then we don’t feel so great about ourselves. I know this happens to me, and I always struggle to find healthy ways to deal with my occasional low self-confidence. In an earlier post, I discussed how mental health and bad breath connect. Confidence plays a large role in this issue. Over the years, I’ve cultivated some advice that I think people might find useful. It’s important to remember that everyone is a unique individual, which is why these tips might not work for you. That’s why I highly recommend you find suggestions that work for you. Leave me your suggestions in the comments section below! Hopefully you are now on your path to regaining confidence!
Tips on Regaining Confidence
Play To Your Strengths
Make a list of things you’re good at doing. Keep it with you and check that list whenever you’re feeling down. It’s a great way to remind yourself that there are things that make you great. You can put them in a jar and pull them out whenever you want or when you’re feeling a little low about yourself. You can also put them down on your phone that way it’s always with you. I highly recommend keeping it in a journal. You can also write down how you’re feeling in this journal and keep track of your mental health.
Be Nicer To Yourself
You have to stop saying nasty things about yourself. I do it. You do it. Everybody does it. However, we all need to start changing the way we talk about ourselves. We wouldn’t say the same things about our friends or people we care about, but we aren’t afraid to say them about ourselves. We are our own harshest critics when we should be our biggest cheerleaders. This is a great way for regaining confidence lost.
Having goals helps you find motivation. A lack of motivation has shown a connection to a lack of self-confidence. I love to set goals, and I keep track of them with clear steps towards an end goal. If you know what you want, you’re willing to work harder to get it. Feeling motivated and seeing your goals come into fruition is one of the of best feelings in the world.
Acknowledge That This Feeling Is Normal
Sometimes we think we’re alone when we get these feelings, and it’s important to remember that we aren’t. Everyone gets down about themselves. Reach out to anyone who might care about you. If you see others who might need a hand up, reach out to them as well. We need to not only be kinder to ourselves but also to each other.
