Boost your self-confidence

It can be pretty easy to fall into a self-confidence rut. Little things can make or break your confidence level on any given day. Fight back with one of these confidence-boosting tips:

Play dress-up:

Throw on one of your favorite outfits, or at least one you know will turn heads. By wearing attire that increases your self-confidence, you’ll feel more presentable, secure and in control of your life.

Challenge yourself:

Find something new and exciting thing! Challenging yourself to master something — and then doing it — will give you a huge boost in self-confidence.

Do something you love:

When you’re feeling low, it’s important to do something you love and feel good doing. By doing something you’re good at and that brings you pleasure, you’ll feel more competent, accomplished and capable of handling any task that comes your way.

Put on a happy face:

When you smile, the whole world smiles with you, so why not? Even if you’re having one of “those” days, slap on a sincere grin. When you see others responding to your jovial attitude, your mood is bound to take a turn for the brighter and make you feel better about yourself.


Take some time out of your hectic schedule to seriously relax. By slowing your brain’s thought pattern, you’ll be less emotional and you’ll feel calmer and more in control of your life — a key to feeling confident. Relax through yoga, meditation or even just a nightly bubble bath.
