How To Be More Confident In 8 Easy Steps 

Smile!

Always smile! Even if you don't really feel like it, studies show that smiling during stressful times can help you to relax, lower your heart rate and blood pressure. The actual act of smiling triggers your brain into releasing feel good endorphins! 

Accept Compliments

So many people, including me, simply shrug off compliments or find it hard to accept them. You start to think that the person is 'just saying that' to make you happy. I've never been good at accepting compliments but it's something I've been working on as I struggled to believe that people were actually giving honest compliments! The truth is, the compliments are genuine! Accept it, appreciate it and feel good about it!

Have Some 'Me Time'

Everyone needs some time to themselves. It's so important to make time just for you for your own health and wellbeing. Even if it's just half an hour to sit down and drink a cup of tea! Self Care is an absolute necessity.

Say What You Like About You

This sounds like a cheesy one, but it's important. Each day 'say' or write down one new thing that you like about yourself. Create a list and refer back to it as and when you need to. Remind yourself of all the amazing things about you.

Make A Bit Of An Effort

I know some days you really don't want to do anything, some days I don't either! But making a little effort into your appearance can make such a difference. Even if you simply have a shower and get dressed! Feeling clean and in fresh clothes can make you feel so much more confidence. By no means am I saying spend ages every day getting ready or suggesting wearing loads of make up every day, but just a little bit of effort here and there.

Be Kind And Generous

Even small acts of kindness can make a huge difference to someone's life, and they will make a difference to how you view yourself as well. It is true there's no such thing as a selfless good deed, as you can't help feeling good when you are kind to others and your confidence will soar because of it!

Take Selfies

Something that has hugely helped my confidence is simply taking more photos of myself! It's viewing yourself how others see you, it's noticing the little changes as your confidence grows. Try taking a selfie everyday for a few weeks, and trust me, you'll feel so much better about yourself. 

Believe In Yourself

Decide what you want out of life, those ultimate goals and jot them down along with different ideas of how you can achieve them. Motivate yourself (using quotes, listening to podcasts, whatever works for you) Believe in yourself and smash those goals. Believe you can do it because you absolutely can.
