Confidence building tips to start your day

How to boost your self confidence

Feel good with these five simple lifts to feed your energy, improve your self-esteem and inspire you as you prepare for the day ahead.

1. DIY aromatherapy
Different fragrances can have a huge impact on how we feel. Make ginger tea with slices of fresh ginger, lemon juice and hot water, and shower with fragrant shampoo. Try an everyday treat like Head & Shoulders ‘Citrus Fresh’, which will make you feel good and make your body feel invigorated in the morning.

2. Eat for self-esteem
Carbohydrates, fat and sugar affect mood and leave you feeling sluggish – the last thing your confidence needs! Slow-release energy providers and foods rich in protein are ideal, eg yoghurt for calcium then eggs with  wholemeal toast for fibre and protein.

3. Look how you feel
Wear clothes you feel comfortable in. Get a friend to photograph you in all your outfits to see what really suits you best and which clothes boost your self confidence Top tip: different bras work better with different clothes, even on the same body!

4. Love the details
For just a couple of pounds at a charity shop get yourself two or three necklaces to set off your look or transform an outfit.

5. Feel prepared
Go through what you need to do today, even if that’s just checking over your post-it note reminders on the fridge. If you’re feeling daunted by a task that has to be done, just stop and think, ‘What advice would I give my friend if she had to do this?’

Thank you for these great advices. Making lists and paying extra care about how I look do help me everyday. I will definitely try and take a step back asking myself "What advice would I give a friend in the same situation?"

Thanks for the tips. If I have a big task to tackle I figure out the first logical step and get that done, because then the task is a little smaller and I feel I have achieved something. The whole task can get done over a few days this way.

Meditation helps me, just relaxing 10 minutes in morning before I start day, focusing on my deep breathing, helps me to start the day calmly.
