5 Healthy Habits To Improve Your Self-Esteem

 5 Healthy Habits To Improve Your Self-Esteem

1. Focus on your health: 

You can accomplish way more with good health. Exercise regularly. Physical activity improves your outer appearance and releases endorphins that boost your mood and self-esteem. Clean foods loaded with antioxidants  and the right minerals can increase serotonin naturally making you feel-good instantly and overtime.

2. Set and achieve goals:   

Setting and achieving small goals like making your bed every morning, waking up ten minutes earlier to work out for even five minutes, or developing a plan to drink eight glasses of water a day will build momentum and create a sense of forward progress; making it easier to continue working towards bigger goals. And PLEASE remember to celebrate every little accomplishment. Research shows that celebrating small wins improves morale, resilience, and fills us with positivity.

3. Practice self-care:  

Taking care of yourself, such as getting enough sleep, eating well, and practicing relaxation techniques especially meditation, and prayer can significantly improve your overall well-being and self-esteem. Take time to do something you love. Hobbies provide an outlet for creativity and self-expression, which can be fulfilling for the soul.

4. Surround yourself with positive people: 

Being around people who support and encourage you can help build your self-esteem. They do an outstanding job of reminding us of our strengths. Try to make the most of the time you have with people. Ask them for advice in becoming more confident and where they think you shine. In your free time, try to spend it with good friends or people you'd like to get to know better, who inspire you, even if it's a phone call or listening to them on YouTube. Don't be afraid to cut off relationships that are hurting you.

5. Practice positive self-talk: 

Pay attention to how you talk to yourself and try to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. For example, change "I can't do this," to "I can't do this YET!" Our subconscious doesn't differentiate the two. It believes what you tell it, and many of our reactions like anger stem from beliefs we aren't even aware are there. Seeing and believing the positive  starts with self-reflection. It's SUPER important to self-reflect. An unexamined life is not yours. Self-reflection is valuable for personal development, self-awareness, and emotional well-being. It can help you understand and manage your thoughts and emotions; 90% of our problems happen because we live subconsciously without reflecting on what may be causing our beliefs and pain.
