Things you can do to improve your confidence!

The little alcoholic drink that seems to give me ALL my confidence! - Cheers to you!

Confidence and self-esteem are two massive aspects of an individual’s life. Without the former, people don’t really get the chance to do the things they love; they also won’t pursue certain opportunities with everything they have, trust me - i know from experience. The latter is needed in order to get through daily life – no matter how significant the tasks are. It’s pretty heart-breaking seeing somebody with all of the potential in the world not execute things as well as they can and it’s not great when a talented person stays firmly within their shell because they don’t have the bite and the belief to perform. 

If you’re struggling with your confidence levels right now, then I feel for you. Knowing that you want to do something but being a little too scared of what others think or worrying about failure isn’t something you should have to deal with. Fortunately, confidence is something we build up; we’re not born with it! Some are able to boost it within seconds; others might need a few months! If you’d like to know about a few ways you can lift that confidence up a little, then have a read of the following!

Talk More 

Social interaction is one of the best ways of boosting your confidence. It’s always one of the best ways somebody can beat social anxiety, obviously, but that’s for another time! I found mine through blogging and attending bloggers events! It doesn't take a lot to get yourself out there and the simplest of things can help at first. For instance, when you walk past someone in the street, you should just say hello or smile (i do this a lot these days, i see a lot of dog walkers!). It doesn’t have to be much, but it could do a lot. Complimenting another person also helps due to the mirroring feeling it gives you – i usually comment on other peoples instagrams or blogs!

Work Out A Little 

Exercising does a lot for one’s confidence. You can be enhanced mentally and physically, and you have to do is go outside and get a sweat on! The endorphin release and the feeling of achievement combine to make you so much more positive about yourself! Even if it's just a walk to start with or if you're a gym bunny - there's loads of exercise for everyone!

Buy A Car And Start Driving!

Driving makes such a difference to a person’s view of his or herself. When you drive, you have that freedom to go wherever you want. When i got my first car i was terrified but then i never had to rely on other people for lifts and i could go anywhere i wanted too - especially back to see my family. If you don’t drive, then the idea of doing so might be a little nerve-wracking, but you get used to it. My driving lessons were so terrifying at first but once you get going, it's like you've done it all your life! If you can already drive but don’t have a car, then your main issue is deciding when to buy something or opt for something like Vauxhall Finance for new & used cars. A car isn’t an automatic confidence-bringer, but, over time, you’ll find that you become more assured - My cars a vauxhall and i love the freedom it gives me. I also feel like an adult who has her life together a little more with a car.

Do Something Awkward Or Fearful 

A great way to build yourself up is to literally face your fears. It’s not pleasant to think about, but just remember what has happened pretty much every single time you’ve attacked a fear. You came out on the other side more knowledgeable and competent, didn’t you? Start with something small and work up to any bigger fears - driving was one for me - next stop is a 10k race when i haven't ran in over a year!

Every little step counts towards building your own confidence!
