5 Strategies to Boost Self-esteem
Practice Self-Compassion Be kind to yourself. Give yourself a reminder that you are worthy no matter the setback or challenge. Nurture yourself by taking time out to do small things that make you feel special. Replace self-critical talk by speaking to yourself as a dear friend, use words of support and encouragement.
Use Positive Affirmations Choose positive affirmations that you believe would help you become the best version of yourself. Create a practice of repeating your affirmations to yourself out loud and with feeling.
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you Spend your time with people whom when you leave the experience you have feelings of positivity, joy and happiness.
Celebrate small wins and successes Setting small, managable goals and tracking your progress allows you to celebrate your successes and build self-esteem through feelings of resilience and accomplishment
Do something kind for someone Small acts of kindness we do for others boosts both our own happiness and self-esteem by knowing we made a positive contribution to the world
