Let’s face it, there won’t be many of us who don’t struggle with our own self esteem from time to time. Sadly in a digital age of instant gratification and images of perceived perfection everywhere we look, self esteem is affecting our mental health even more.
As Oprah Winfrey quite rightly says; “Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgment of others.”
Some really easy ways to boost your self esteem could include:
- STOP criticising yourself
- STOP comparing yourself
- START practising gratitude
- START moving – we all know the benefits even a little bit of exercise can bring.
So this February why not invest some time into boosting your self esteem and finding small ways in every day life to encourage yourself. There is loads of information available about this awareness month so why not start RIGHT NOW and invest in yourself.
If you are really struggling with self esteem issues, please, contact a professional or confide in a friend or family member who can support you.
