This time of year can be stressful for many, and may seem like an uphill battle because it can get extremely busy with all that goes along with it. Speaking of which, there will be fewer blog posts over the next two weeks but hopefully they’ll be good ones!
Most of us can use a little pep-talk and boost in confidence from time to time. It’s especially true when things are stressful or something difficult hits such as job loss, a relationship breakup or health concern.
I usually think that things don’t bother me, and can brush everything off my shoulder. But it’s not always the case, and sometimes I need to take some steps to remind myself of the positives.
Here are three ways of the ways I do it when I need a quick boost.
1.Focus on positive feedback from others: Think about the positive feedback you receive from family, friends or coworkers. Take the time to remember what it is about you that people find fabulous, especially during the times you’re starting to feel bad about yourself.
2.Try to focus on being the best you possible: No one is perfect, not even celebrities. Everyone’s definition of perfection is different. So, instead of trying to live up to a concept, try to be the best you that you can. Some of the things you might think are “imperfect” are probably the things that make you fabulous.
3.Don’t try to live up to someone else’s ideal: You may find it difficult to maintain a positive self-image if you always try to live up to someone else’s vision of what you should be. As the step above mentioned, just try to be the best you that you can.
These are just three quick tips. If you want some more, I wrote a detailed post “Shine bright like a diamond! Give your confidence a boost”.
