How to Boost Your Body Confidence
Hey Powerful Ladies,
The way that you feel about your body can have a huge impact on your quality of life. You may find that if your negative thoughts escalate, you can soon experience anxiety and even depression too. If you want to help yourself, here are some of the steps you should be taking.
Sometimes social media can make you feel bad about yourself, and you what? You just don’t need it! If you want to stop this from being the case, then simply sign out for a little while. This will help you to stop comparing yourself. It will also help you to focus on what really matters… family, friends, work, REAL LIVE conversations. 🙂
Studies have shown time and time again that exercise can be a fantastic way for you to boost your mood. It gives you the chance to feel better about yourself and it can also help you to tone up too. The hard part here is staying motivated. If the gym just doesn’t appeal to you, then find another workout that will help to keep you engaged. That way, you’ll exercise because you love it, rather than it feeling like a chore. Still struggling? Then it’s time to get creative. I love taking classes at Barry’s Bootcamp, Rumble, and Yogaworks. I also like taking classes at Body and Pole and hip-hop dance classes whenever I have time. There are so many options out there now, I promise there is something out for you!

When you have low self-esteem, you may fall into the habit of wearing clothing that covers up your body. You may opt for a baggy t-shirt or even loose-fitting pants. This is normal, but it won’t help you. If you want to make a change then it’s time for you to revamp your wardrobe. Wear clothing items that make you feel good or opt for things that make you feel stylish. Remember that at times, you can be your own worst enemy, and the little luxuries in life are sometimes all you need to make a change. If you just don’t know where to start then consider looking at new clothing brands that you’ve never thought of before, such as Bonds.
Getting all caught up with the way that you look is a waste of time and energy. Sometimes, a drastic change will help to put things into perspective. Rather than focusing on the bad, make a list of all the things that you are thankful for. Keep a journal too, as this will help you to keep track of your thoughts and the way that you feel.
Speak with a Friend
If you don’t think you look good in something, then don’t dwell on it. Instead, ask a friend what they think. You know that you can trust in them to give their honest opinion and sometimes you may even find that you’re being too hard on yourself. It may even be worth asking your friend if they’d take you shopping too, as they may be able to pick out items that you wouldn’t normally go for. This will help you to expand your clothing range, and it can work wonders for your self-esteem. 🙂
