3 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR SELF-ESTEEM
Hi, I’m Jamie Ratowski, owner of Brightside Therapy Services located here in sunny South Florida. In my practice, I strive to help people reach their full potential and become the best version of themselves. In order to do this, we need to have strong, healthy self-esteem.
With strong self-esteem your relationships will be more fulfilling, you will have the ability to make smarter, healthier decisions for yourself, and set yourself up to achieve more success.
Today I want to share with you my 3 favorite tips to help boost your self-esteem!
My first tip is: USE POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS
Positive affirmations are like little uplifting statements to focus on to boost your mood, increase confidence, and help with your overall motivation. Examples could be “I am BEAUTIFUL” or “good things are going to happen today”.
The great thing about positive affirmations is that you can create your own as needed or simply type in “positive affirmations” in google and have thousands of affirmations available to you at your fingertips. Pinterest is always my go-to site when I’m choosing an affirmation. Positive affirmations are a great way to focus on feeling better, boosting your mood, and boosting your overall self-esteem.
My second tip is: INCORPORATE MORE HEALTHY HABITS INTO YOUR LIFE
Since we all have different likes, dislikes, and strengths, these habits are going to vary from person to person. Think about a time you did something good for yourself and how you felt after. Maybe you went to a spin class, read an intriguing book, went for a hike, or spent some time in the sun. Treating your mind, body, and soul well will reward you. I always feel like my best self after I have a really good workout with my trainer. Find the healthy things that make you happy and increase the frequency of these habits, this is a great way to feel better and boost self-esteem.
My third and final tip is: SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE
This tip is self-explanatory. Positive people rub off on us. If we create a support system made up of positive, uplifting, motivational individuals we are likely to receive some of that motivation ourselves. These individuals can be anyone in our lives, friends, romantic partners, coworkers, or family. Anyone who is a good influence on you fits the profile. I never feel more at ease, happy, and supported than when I am with great people who care for me. Being happy, feeling motivated, and having support are all essential components of self-esteem. A little bonus tip is to eliminate as much of the negative influence and toxic relationships from your life as possible. These are the types of relationships that weaken our self-esteem.
