Five Ways to Boost Your Self Esteem

Self-esteem is a tricky part of life to keep on the straight and narrow. All too often, it can veer off course, affecting every part of our lives, from our friendships to our working habits. The trick when suffering from low or fluctuating self-esteem is to take the initiative and source your own extra confidence to reinforce against any growing sense of worthlessness. Here are some easy-to-remember tips for those experiencing flagging self-esteem, who feel ready to take the bull by the horns and boost themselves into a better mindset.


Every time you exercise, chemicals, known as endorphins, flood your brain and give you a natural high: a feeling of achievement and success and pride. Coupled with a feeling of elation at having finished the run, swim or cycle you’ve been on, endorphins do wonders for our self-esteem, instilling a sense of purpose and achievement when you’re at your most despondent.

There’s rarely any use moping around when you feel down - that’s why seizing the day is so important - but wearing a smile, even through any low times, can make a good deal of difference for such a simple movement! As the saying goes, smiles travel far and fast, and smiling out at the world will return beaming faces as you pass people on the sidewalk. Just try it!

We draw a terrific amount of our overall confidence from the way we look. Remember the last time a day went sour after you found a particularly prominent pimple on your face? There are many products on the market to assist with those feeling their body image could use a confidence-boosting revamp. From the ever-growing market of plastic surgery to body modifications such as tattoos and piercing, the way we feel about our body can vastly affect our self-esteem. For the gentlemen out there, this website will help you gain some extra confidence. 

Sometimes, remembering who you are and what you love to do is enough to give a significant shot in the arm to your self-esteem. Indulging in your hobbies - whether gaming, getting active, being creative, or exploring new places - serves to infect pride, joy, and passion into a mind that feels bereft of them.

If your self-esteem ever feels particularly low, know that your friends are always there for you to pick you up, dust you off, and release you back into the world a new and improved person! Never fear opening up to friends about issues with your mental health; they will listen, share, and help as best they can. On top of all that help, sharing on this level makes friendships even stronger and more robust!

Next time you feel an attack of the low mood coming on, remember these five little nuggets of wisdom that might one day serve to pick you out of a place in which you feel useless and troubled, and pop you back into the confident, bold, assertive and happy persona that you every so often inevitably slip from.
