The simplest things can make a big difference to how we feel about ourselves and our lives.
Getting a good nights sleep. Having fresh flowers around the home. Laughing at a friend’s joke. These small, daily actions not only help us to feel more happy and relaxed, they can also boost self esteem.
Appreciating life’s little joys is a gentle reminder that every day is a gift, and that each of our lives is special and unique — something that should be valued.
Yet unfortunately it’s easy to focus on the negatives, on what we don’t have, or what we wish we could change.
We might catch ourselves comparing our life, our body or personality, to other people, and particularly other women. Whether this manifests itself as you judging them, or you judging you, someone is going to get devalued.
Comparing yourself to other people won’t boost self esteem, it won’t change how you feel about yourself, and it won’t help you to make the positive changes that you need to live a life that you love.
No matter how perfect someone else’s life, or body, may look from the outside, we all struggle with feeling insecure from time to time.
The simple strategy that I will share with you in today’s video takes less than 30 seconds and will allow you to feel more confident and satisfied in yourself, as well as share those positive feelings with other women around you.
Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear from you.
What simple, daily, action, habit, or experience helps you to feel happier, more confident and boosts self esteem?
