Giving yourself a self esteem booster is always the right thing to do. None of us were born perfect and we can always strive toward improving some aspects of ourselves. This is a great way to have a better then average experience of living just as long as you keep in mind that the journey is just as important as the goal. Studies would suggest that the happiest people in life are those who have learned to love themselves. This article will focus on self esteem boosters and how you can benefit from them.
Top Five Self Esteem Boosters
Booster #1 Compliment Yourself Daily
Make it a daily exercise to compliment yourself. It could be something like “I really liked the way I handled that situation,” or “I love how my hair falls softly onto my face today”. The compliment can be deep or superficial. Whatever it is, it should help keep your mood up, even if only slightly. Highlight the positive aspect of every situation you encounter. If you practice this often, you’re on your way to liking yourself a whole lot better.
Booster #2 Give Yourself A Make Over
Find a positive friend that you enjoy being around and get dressed up. Put on your best attire, dab on a little make-up and get your hair done (not necessarily by a professional), then grab a camera and snap fun and funny photos of each other. Once you’ve had the photos printed, discard those that make you look drab and keep only the shots were you looked your best. Whenever you feel down, you can just go look at these pictures to remind yourself that you are good-looking and that your life is fun.
Booster #3 Get In Shape
Make it a goal to be in the best shape of your life. Like it was stated in the introduction remember the journey is just as important as the goal. Simple daily exercises to boost your bloodstream every morning will do. You will feel better, your mood will be more positive, and the more congenial you will be with other people. If you give out positive energy, the more beautiful you become – and the more people will be inclined to return positive vibes to you, too.
Booster #4 Reward Yourself
Make an important appointment on your calendar for at least one day a week. It could be anything from watching a cheesy movie to walking your dog in the park. As long as it’s time for you in doing what you want to do.
Booster #5 Create A List Of Your Positive Aspects
Sit down and create a list of all the things you could honestly see that someone else may appreciate about you. They don’t have to be big things, they could be as simple as “I have a great head of hair” or “I always help people in need”. Keep this list in your wallet or wherever you can see them and whenever you feel terrible, just take out this list and read it to yourself.
