I find that we too often tell ourselves that we aren’t valued enough. “It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it”.
The biggest critic that you can find is yourself. We criticize ourselves more than any other person would – no matter if it is a friend or an enemy. It is very important to our mind that we begin taking care of our thoughts; start working on the confidence.
This, of course, doesn’t come easy and each person needs some time to acknowledge that he is worthy of great things that life can bring.
I want to share my secrets and tips for feeling better about yourself. These little things helped me to start living a happier life.
Choose your mood every morning. Tell yourself that you are in an amazing mood and nothing can ruin it. This step is extremely important. If you wake up feeling blessed, chances are you are going to have an awesome day. If you wake up and tell yourself “no, another day, time to go to work and do the things I hate doing”, your day will probably be awful.
Obsess over the things you absolutely admire about yourself. Try to not focus on things that you “ugh, hate” about yourself and start noticing the things you “yay, love”. Tell yourself you are stunning and you love your hair, for example, every morning. Don’t focus on one or two stretch marks that you have and tell yourself, “wow my skin looks amazing”. Don’t purposely look for flaws. Let’s admit it, everyone has their own disadvantages but if you start feeling good about your disadvantages, this energy will reflect on you in the most positive way. Compliment yourself every day!
Keep a journal (Five-minute journal is perfect for that). I know it might sound like a “waste of time”, but in fact, it is the complete opposite. Having a dairy helps so many people when it comes to negative thoughts and anxiety. Start journaling and journal in a positive way. Write what you are thankful for, your goals and some affirmations.
Try to stop pushing people away because you feel unworthy. It is an incredibly big issue for so many people. They tend to feel low self-worth so they begin to always push away others who care for them deeply. The reason why they do that is that they are afraid to get too close. If this sounds familiar, then try to stop doing that. You no matter what deserve to have people who care about you. If you continuously let those people go, you will end up alone and probably be feeling even worse. You need those who can lift your mood and make you feel loved.
Eat healthily and exercise. This part is also important. As you start taking care of yourself, you start to appreciate yourself more. If you feed your body nourishing foods and work out at least 30 minutes a day, you will soon feel your self-worth increase.
