Topic 3 Ways to improve your self-esteem (part 2)

There are a number of ways in which you can improve your self-esteem:

Identify and Challenge Your Negative Beliefs: The first step is to identify, and then challenge, your negative beliefs about yourself

Identify the Positive About Yourself: Write down positive things about yourself

Build Positive Relationships and Avoid Negative Ones: build relationships with people who make you feel good about yourself and avoid the relationships make you feel bad about yourself.

Give Yourself a Break: Self-esteem varies from situation to situation, from day to day and hour to hour. Give yourself a break. We all have times when we feel a bit down or find it harder to maintain our self-belief and that’s ok too. 

Learn to say no: If you have low self-esteem, you can find it hard to stand up for themselves or say no to others; often overburdening yourself causing more stress and making it harder to manage. 

Improve Your Physical Health: It is much easier to feel good about ourselves when we are fit and healthy. You deserve to be the best version of yourself

Take On Challenges: One way to improve your self-esteem can actually be to take on a challenge. This doesn’t mean that you need to do everything yourself—part of the challenge might be to seek help when you need it—but be prepared to try something that you know will be difficult to achieve. By succeeding, you show yourself that you can achieve.
