Self-Esteem Articles

Several factors contribute to a person having low self-esteem.  Let's highlight a few significant items that will help improve self-esteem issues.

 

Improving your self-esteem by:

  1. Be assertive - Do not allow people to treat you any kind of way.  Speak up for yourself and learn to walk away.  Teach people how to treat you, by not allowing yourself to be belittled, even in jest.
  2. Spend quality time with people who appreciate you for who you are.  There is no need for pretense.  You can just be your authentic self.
  3. Have a grateful and giving attitude.  Look for opportunities to do something nice for someone.  There are lots of ways to show that you care for another person.  The key here is as you help brighten someone's day you forget about personal thoughts that may be heavy on your mind.
  4. Celebrate you.  This is a grand moment to boost your spirit.  Cook yourself a great meal.  You can do this alone or invite a few friends that are pleasant.  Find one thing that you completed and celebrate its completion.  This is a perfect incentive to remind yourself how good it feels to bring a project to completion.
  5. When you get up in the morning always dress to look your best.  It does not matter if you plan on staying home, going to work, school or just relaxing.  Experience a positive self-productive day.  Pay attention to personal needs and set aside some time to get those necessities accomplished. 

This is a perfect time to spend some quality time with you, even if you have to get up early.   Encourage your loved ones to dress and properly groom themselves and work on their necessities.  When you look good you feel good and it energizes you to enjoy your day.
