Know how to make yourself feel good, and do it.
I don't know about you, but my self confidence and self esteem fluctuates massively. Like, one day I'm walking round the city in my heels and a coffee feeling pretty damn good about myself, and then other days I'm moping around the flat in my pjs and a lot of chocolate, wondering why I don't look and feel like all of those girls that you see on Instagram that are totally rocking it.
There's that saying about being in control of your own happiness, and I think that this applies to feeling good about yourself sometimes, too. For me, it tends to be along the lines of taking time and effort to do my make up, actually doing something with my hair, and putting thought into an outfit that I know is going to make me feel all sassy and confident.
Self and body confidence is a huge struggle for most ladies that I know. And while we're probably never going to be 100% happy with the way we look, being able to look in the mirror or take a selfie and think 'do you know what, I look pretty okay today' can make all the difference. Pay yourself compliments, upload a photo to Instagram, take all of the selfies in the world if you know it's going to make you feel better.
While you shouldn't ever depend on other people to make you feel good, spending time with, and talking to people who build your confidence is only a good thing. Surround yourself with friends that tell you that you look hot in your latest Insta, and not the ones that tell you that they don't like your outfit, or questions why you have no make up on, or that they could do a better job... you get my drift.
Taking photo's that I'm happy with or dancing around in my mirror to my favourite songs makes me feel super confident and ready to take on the day, and it's something that I'll do to motivate myself if I'm feeling a little down or unsure of myself that day. By the end of 'Shout out to my ex', it's most certainly done the trick. ;)
Do you have any little routines to boost your self confidence?
