Feeling low and self conscious is a terrible feeling, but it’s something we all experience at one time or another. Not everybody is born with confidence, and even those who are confident can sometimes feel low and like they don't want to go out and face the world.
Here, I'm giving you 7 ways you can boost your confidence fast. Take a look and see what you can incorporate into your life to feel more confident than ever:
Change Your Posture
Start by simply changing your posture. Your posture says a lot about you. If your shoulders are slumped and you’re facing the floor, you’re not going to look or feel very good at all. Roll your shoulders back and keep your head up. Correct yourself when you notice your posture slipping. This will help you to avoid health problems in the future, as well as help you to look and feel better now.
The more you know, the better. Knowledge is power, after all! Read books on important social issues. Read books on building good habits and confidence. Get into self help. Teach yourself as much as you can and soon, you’ll realize how powerful and capable you truly are. If you don’t have much time to sit down and read, try to listen to audiobooks in the car, doing chores, or while out walking.
Wear Power Clothing
Clothing does have the power to make us feel a certain way. When you get dressed, aim to feel confidence. Perhaps you could throw on a blazer with jeans, or wear a pair of boots that make you feel great. Don’t ‘save’ clothing for a special occasion. Wear it now and use it as a tool to boost the way you feel every day.
Take Care Of Yourself
You’ll always feel more confident when you take better care of yourself. Make sure you’re prioritizing your health and happiness. If you skip your dental appointment time and time again, you’ll end up at the emergency dentist. Take care of yourself by booking in at the best dental office now! Make sure you stick to your health appointments and come up with a self care routine you can repeat every day to improve the way you feel.
Think Powerful Thoughts
The way you think can change everything. Thoughts trigger feelings, so if you’re constantly thinking nasty things about yourself, your feelings will follow and you will suffer. Aim to think more powerful thoughts. Instead of worrying things will go wrong, consider what could happen if they go right. Flip your thoughts and don’t dwell on negative thought patterns.
Strike A Power Pose
Need confidence in a flash? Strike a power pose! Stand like a superhero with your legs apart and hands on your hips. You should instantly feel like you can take on the world.
Spend time each day visualizing. Who do you want to be? How do you want to feel? What do you want to do? Imagine it all before it happens and you’ll be prepared. You’ll begin feeling like the person you want to be, too!
