Read on to see 5 ways to give your self-confidence a boost
No matter how blessed of a life you lead – you will experience moments of low self-confidence. You are only human! We all have our off days whether it’s a bad work day or you’re stressed to the gills! Today I wanted to share 5 easy methods I use to instantly boost my self-confidence – without breaking the bank! *Make sure to finish the entire post for a pretty sweet giveaway!*
Write Down 10 Things
It is so easy to focus on the negatives. What is going wrong in our lives? What we don’t like about ourselves. It’s important to take the time to recognize what we do like about ourselves. Ask yourself: what are my strengths? It’s amazing how physically writing down our strengths can boost our mood! The next time you are feeling less than – I challenge you to write 10 strengths you possess. Start with “I am”. Once you are done, read them aloud. You may be surprised how effective this can be.
Plan a Girls Day
Whenever I am stressed out or feeling blah – I immediately text my girlfriends and plan a fun date. Whether it’s going out for drinks or spending a night in laughing and watching movies – my girlfriends ALWAYS manage to put a smile on my face. If you’re feeling down in the dumps it’s important to see friends who make you happy. You know those friends who constantly complain about everything wrong in their lives? Don’t text those friends. Text the ones who love to watch Disney movies, who loves arts and crafts, who love baking, who love dancing. Do something fun with fun people!
If you need a serious pick me up – pamper yourself! Devote an entire hour (or two!) to yourself. Put on some soothing music. Take a warm bath. Put on a face mask. Give yourself a mani. Then a pedi. It may sound silly, but this time you dedicate to yourself is practicing the art of self-love. If you’d rather sit back and relax – book a massage or a mani/pedi at your favorite salon. Disconnect from your phone and concentrate on how great it feels to be pampered. You deserve this!
Let’s be honest – there are girls that prefer pampering and girls that perfect to burn calories. While I prefer the former (like…highly prefer) exercise is a powerful tool to build self-confidence. Not only does it make you physically look better – it helps you to mentally feel better. If you’re clueless about fitness like me – pull up some pilates or yoga YouTube videos! They are completely free and accommodate all skill levels. My personal favorite is practicing yoga. It increases my flexibility and helps tone all over. Whether at home or at the gym, set an attainable fitness goal and conquer it. You can do this!
Invest in Lace Panties
If you need to spice up your confidence… wear cute underwear! Yes, you heard me correct! Ain’t no woman feeling confident in those period panties. Pick out some underwear that makes you feel confident, sexy, fun. Don’t pick out the underwear your boyfriend likes. These panties aren’t for him… they’re for you. And you only. I went through a time where I didn’t care what I wore. And then I wore a cute pair of panties and remembered that confident feeling. I know what you’re thinking… I want to wear comfortable panties! I feel ya girlfran’! Me too. Luckily, there are so many comfortable AND cute panties out there.
