Feeling confident is not always the easiest thing in the world. No matter if you are suffering from depression, anxiety, weight gain, or just feeling down in the dumps, it can be hard to fully love and feel great about ourselves. If you know what I mean, keep reading along. Here are a few ways to feel more confident:
Take care of yourself in all forms
Of course, eating healthy foods and drinking enough water is a huge part of taking care of yourself. It is definitely a big part of it, but there is more involved than just the basics. In addition to eating the proper foods and drinking enough water, you also need to make sure that you are getting enough sleep. You need to make sure you are laughing, you need to make sure you are able to say no when you don’t want to (or can’t) do something. You need to make sure that your life is for the most part happy and enjoyable, and you need to make sure you are listening to your body and your needs and putting them first. So, yes. Nutrition is a huge part of taking care of yourself, but there is so much more than just nutrition. You have to take care of yourself in all forms: nutrition, hydration, exercise, mental health, and so on.
Dress to impress
I always feel more confident when I am wearing an outfit that actually makes me feel great. Even if you are just sitting around the house that day, take a shower, brush your teeth, and get dressed so that you do not feel poorly about yourself!
Be nice to yourself
That little voice that tells you you’re killin’ it (or not) is way more powerful than you might think. Make an effort to be kind to yourself and, if you do slip up, try to challenge any negative thoughts. A good rule of thumb is to speak to yourself in the same way that you’d speak to your mates. This can be really hard at first, but practice makes perfect.
Do what makes you happy
If you spend time doing the things you enjoy, you’re more likely to think positively. Try to schedule in a little you-time every day. Whether that’s time spent reading, cooking or just conking out on the couch for a bit, if it makes you happy, make time for it.
Anxiety is a huge factor in feeling confident and I know a lot of people struggle with it. Although not everyone can “just relax,” but sometimes doing self-care tactics like breathing exercises, light yoga, meditation, taking baths, and focusing on yourself can help to improve anxiety. I have heard that so many people lately have had trouble winding down at night, so finding a relaxing routine that works for you is essential in getting a good night’s sleep, ensuring that you are ready for the next day!
Celebrate the big and small things
You got up on time this morning. Tick. You poached your eggs to perfection. Winning. Celebrating the small victories is a great way to build confidence and start feeling better about yourself.
Consider Hypnosis from Sean Wheeler
Sean Wheeler is considered Atlanta’s best-known and best-reviewed hypnotherapist (over 100 5-star reviews on Google alone). He’s been in practice for nearly two decades and he has performed more than 13,000 sessions with 3,000 clients. He is skilled in relationship hypnosis, hypnosis for phobias, hypnosis for fears, hypnosis for smoking, and much more.
Pure Hypnosis | Sean Wheeler is the real deal. There’s simply no other therapist around with his experience and track record. He has appeared on CNN, CNN Headline News, CNN Accent Health, ABC, NBC, CBS, B98.5, Food Network Radio, “The Bert Show,” Chrisley Knows Best, The Jeff and Jenn Show, etc. etc. etc. “Sean has also appeared as an Expert Forensic Hypnotist on the nationally-syndicated hit show Swift Justice with Nancy Grace.” Pretty cool, right? Needless to say, he has a reputation for being great and no matter what you are struggling with, I’m sure he can help. In fact, he says: “I deal with a wide range of issues, many of which might surprise you. Clients often ask me if hypnosis can help them with various problems or issues, and my response is usually “yes.” This is not because I’m on a quest to make lots of money (although there’s nothing wrong with that), it’s because many problems have to do with how a person thinks. How you think affects how you feel, and how you feel directly impacts your actions. Thus, making changes at the subconscious level will directly impact first your thoughts, then your feelings and actions.”
