Let’s Be Honest
To be completely honest with you, I struggle to see myself has capable, worthy, and confident sometimes.
A few mornings ago, I rolled over out of bed and walked into the bathroom to prepare for the day. I turned the lights on and stared at myself in the mirror. The first statement that came out of my mouth was, “Why aren’t I where I want to be? What’s wrong with me?”
I started to feel depleted, but instead of staying in that state of funk, I went through my morning routine and completed these three things that I’m going to share with you today.
Tips to Boost Your Confidence
1. Speak Words of Affirmation Over Yourself
Speaking positive words out loud about yourself can aid in your confidence growing. Here are a few statements that you can say each morning:
- “My name is ______________, and I’m a confident, creative, beautiful, and resilient person.”
- “I will walk and talk with confidence today.”
- “Everything I plan to get done today, I will do my best to get them done.”
Doing some simple exercises each day can help your confidence soar to new heights. For me, when I’m not feeling great about myself, I tend to go for a walk to clear my head and get back on track. If I have the time, I’ll go to the gym.
Regular exercise is a wonderful way to boost your confidence. Getting your body moving and blood pumping has many benefits (increased stamina, stronger body, fit better into your clothes, better health, etc.)
I’m going to share with you a quick 10-minute workout that you can do a few times a week to help you boost your confidence.
-100 Jumping Jacks (warm-up)
- 12 Push-Ups (4 sets)
- 12 Squat with Overhead Shoulder Press (4 sets)
- 40-Second Plank (4 sets)
- 12 Alternating Lunges (4 sets)
Please use caution when completing this workout. Listen to your body! If an exercise is causing you pain, modify it. Please don’t make it too easy for yourself, though. If you feel that this workout is a bit too difficult for you to do, go for a walk around your neighborhood.
3. Spruce Yourself Up
Ladies, put on a little makeup, wear clothes that actually fit and accentuate your curves. You don’t have to do a lot for you to begin to feel better about yourself.
This is the one tip that I use almost religiously. There’s something about putting on some lip gloss, a pair of earrings, and spraying on some glitter perfume from Bath and Body Works that gives me such a confidence boost.
Here are some other ways you can spruce yourself up:
- Get your hair done (or do it yourself)
- Give yourself a manicure/pedicure
- Change up your wardrobe
- Wear perfume
It’s surprising what little things we can do to improve our self-confidence. It’s a daily task that requires honesty, consistency, and a positive attitude.
Although you may not feel confident every single day, it’s important that you continue to work towards building your confidence daily.
