INCREASING YOUR SELF-ESTEEM

Greetings friends:

Having low self-esteem can really bring us down and affect our relationships but ourselves, our health, our happiness. 

There is one great antidote for low self-esteem, any idea? Kindness. When you do something for someone, it really makes you feel good. It doesn’t have to be anything spectacular, it can be something as simple as picking up something a person has dropped and you picked it up and gave it to them.  Reaching for a high shelf at the supermarket that someone is struggling to reach.

Low self-esteem can also create other conditions, like jealousy, because jealousy is indicative of insecurity, not thinking very well of yourself and lack of confidence.

You may be asking yourself, “How do I get out of this situation?”- “How can I change and better myself.  Besides, I don’t have time to do anything. I barely have time to do my makeup or my hair in the mornings.”Try to do 4 or 5 things below. Go easy on yourself it takes time to make adjustments as well and decision and perseverance.

 

THINGS YOU CAN DO:

  • Concentrate on your good qualities.  Write them down.

  • Value your good qualities.

  • Realize your abilities and their potential.

  • Stop putting yourself down.

  • Stop the self-criticism. 

  • Don’t be a people pleaser.

  • Learn to control your thoughts – You may want to read my blog on this matter.,

  • When you respond to others be conscious in the matter in which you do it.

  • Keep a journal.

  • List what things you are grateful for in that particular day that made you feel good or joyful.

  • List any kindness act you did that day and how it may you feel.

  • Read a motivational book.  There are many books on the subject.,

  • When you feel down take a break, if you have a pet go for a walk, call a friend. or even have a beverage.

  • Practice Self-Love. It can be with simple things, but things that make you feel good.

We all have the same 24 hours, taking 5 or 10 minutes to just sit maybe and read a magazine or a book.  You deserve a break plan on it just as if you were having a doctors appointment.

We need to love ourselves (it does not mean being selfish.) When you feel you are satisfying even just one of your needs it makes you feel good and/or happy and when that happens everyone around you will also perceive it.

We only have one life, live it as happy as you can. Remember happiness is a choice.

Take care of Number 1.  Yourself.

 

Hugs and Enjoy the summer.

I am one of those women that have been fortunate enough to have loved everything my journey in the workplace. Combining motherhood, with all the different rolls we are called upon to play, we more often than not neglect ourselves. We become our own w
