12 simple tips that can boost your self worth quickly

If you've been following me for a while, you've probably read my blog posts about self-worth and self-confidence.

Never disrespect yourself

I've always struggled with poor self-esteem, which has led to a lack of opportunity exploration. I even had a lot of fake friends in my life because I didn't know how to set boundaries back then.

Through this blog post, I want to build your self-confidence so that when you step into the new year, you are a different and better person for yourself.

With these simple tips, you can make changes in your life that will improve your standard of living.

What is Self-Worth?

If we look into the dictionary, it defines self-worth as "the sense of one's own value or worth as a person."

Self-worth is also used as a synonym of self-esteem. 

Those who have higher self-worth have more confidence and self-esteem.

When we have a low sense of self-worth, we are frequently absorbed by toxicity or terrible friends. We let everyone into our lives and give them control of our happiness because we do not know how to draw boundaries.

Having struggled with low self-esteem since childhood, I understand how it feels to see opportunities slip through your fingers that you desperately desired.

Hence, it is essential to work on improving our self-worth so that we can finally achieve our goals and, most importantly, we do not have to rely on others for our happiness.

Simple tips that will improve your self-worth and make you more confident:

1. Find what defines you- Some like to have coffee while others are tea lovers. In the same way, some are social media influencers but, others might not even use social media. Thus, you do not have to follow the crowd to stay in society. Instead, figure out what speaks to your soul.

2.  Smile often- Smiling can improve our confidence instantly. Whenever you are feeling a bit tensed or anxious, remember to smile! Make it a habit to nod to everyone you meet with a smiling face, even if they are strangers.

3.  Fix your posture- You may have seen that all the confident people have one thing in common and i.e, their posture which boosts their confidence. A chin down with a disrupted spine will not make you a confident person. Instead, you would come across as a dull and depressed individual. So, to feel more confident right away, straighten up your back and walk confidently.

4.  Recall your achievements- Do you recall the last time you accomplished a goal? How happy were you? Bring those emotions and sentiments to mind whenever you think you are incapable of doing something, and watch the graph of your self-confidence soaring high. 

5. Remove toxic people- Vibes tell us everything. If you feel uncomfortable or you have to prove your worth to someone then that person does not hold a seat in your life. Let him go because such toxic persons will only make you feel down.

6.  Repeat positive affirmations- Affirmations are words or phrases that you repeat to yourself in order to alter your subconscious mind. They gradually replace negative attitudes and thoughts with positive ones. Speaking specific positive sentences daily to yourself will make positive changes in your life. For instance, if your mind says- "You can't do it." Tell yourself, "I can do it very easily." 

7.  Take unexpected challenges- Challenges take our creative side out and make us strong. The moment an unexpected situation arises, we play the blame game. But little do we know that this situation has come to make us even stronger. Thus, challenges push us to move forward. If you want to gain confidence in any field, start with small challenges. For example, if you aren't going to the gym regularly, set a challenge for yourself to go for at least 21 days. It will make you more productive.

8.  Speak less, listen more- Don't you feel irritated when someone speaks continuously and does not give you a chance to speak up? In the same way, if you won't listen to anyone, you will also be categorized into the same category. No one will seek out your opinions if you constantly express them. If you only make a point once rather than repeatedly, your words will carry more weight. People will feel understood and bonded with you if you spend more time listening than speaking.

9.  Start deep-breathing- When you are stressed or anxious, your breathing tends to be irregular. This causes your body to suffer, which then manifests in your behavior. Deep breathing has numerous advantages. Deep breathing can physically calm your body down if you're stressed or anxious. It can help with both everyday anxiety and other issues.

10.  Stop worrying about others- Worrying about what other people think will prevent you from being completely free to do what you love and be yourself. If you're afraid of taking a selfie in public because people will stare, then let them. You should do whatever makes you happy. 

11. Make a pump-up playlist- Create a pump-up playlist and listen to the songs if you feel nervous or sad at any particular point.  According to research, listening to pop music causes the brain to produce a chemical known as dopamine. That is in charge of a person's overall mood. So, if you're feeling down, turn on the radio and listen to some pop music because you'll be surprised at how quickly your mood will change and you may find yourself jumping up and down.

12.  Switch to a healthy diet- Did you know there are foods that can boost your self-esteem? Eating healthy foods makes you happier and increases serotonin levels in your body. When we are stressed, we tend to eat junk food, but eating nutritious foods is better for our bodies. 

PRO TIP- Every day before going to bed, write about at least three things that made you proud about yourself and read the list before the end of the week.It will not only boost your morale but will also encourage you to love yourself more.

We all have love within ourselves. The only thing we need to do is get it out. In the same way, our worth is somewhere hidden inside our belief system. And once we decide to explore our inner self, we will automatically feel more confident and worthy.
