When you are in a constant state of possessing negative thoughts and self put-downs, it can become exhausting and very traumatizing. Studies have proven time and time again that it is good for you to write down your concerns and issues at hand, even just to rant or vent in your journal about the problem you are facing.

It is extremely important to take the time out of your day to love and better yourself. Now with that being said, it is not the easiest of tasks to accomplish when you are suffering from self-esteem issues.
Now you must make this a priority because to start improving your confidence you must learn to treat yourself. There will be times when you are feeling down and you do not feel like you deserve it but you definitely do!
Doing something little for yourself whether it be treating yourself to a new outfit or rewarding yourself for reaching a goal can help lift your self-esteem.
6.) Pursue Your Goals and Dreams:
Unfortunately, sometimes when you have low self-respect you do not have the ambition or the drive to do anything. It is very easy to overlook your wants and needs when your constant focus is on the things you are self-conscious about.
Write down somethings that you want to do or that you want to achieve and then pull your inner strength together and do them!
Accomplishing these things will help better your self-esteem by boosting your confidence and while allowing you to realize your potential and self-worth!
7.) Keep It Simple – Get A Good Nights Rest:
Self-Esteem issues are already exhausting but pair those issues up with lack of sleep and BOOM double-whammy, you fueled the fire for those nasty self-conscious thoughts to creep back into your mind.
Although you may in fact be used to running on a low amount of sleep, this can actually change your brain chemistry and this has not only been linked to self-esteem issues but also depression.
Sleeping is the body’s natural way to rest, heal and energize. If you continue to try to function on a daily basis with a lack of sleep, chances are you are going to deepen your self-esteem issues so, get to bed at a reasonable time and get that shut eye.
8.) Stop Comparing Yourself To Others Because You Are Unique:
We often find ourselves looking at other people and wishing we had what they did. It maybe their appearance, a skill set they obtain, or even materialistic object and so on.
Now that is okay because we are all guilty of those thoughts but there is a time you need to stop and take a look in the mirror because you are one of a kind!
No one is perfect all you can do is aim for the best version of yourself! There will always be room for improvements but do not be too hard on yourself, achieve healthy and obtainable goals that are set solely for you and no one else.
9.) Accept Compliments:
We all know how hard it can be to take a compliment from people whether it is your mom or a very close friend. You may not always believe what they are telling you and you may not believe it to be the truth so, today that stops!
You see yourself how you want to and with having self-worth issues you fall prey to only seeing the things you dislike about yourself. You need to take a moment to listen and accept the compliment, see how others view you. So, remember that the next time your mom tells you that you look beautiful, look at yourself and see your beauty from her eyes.
10.) Exercise And A Balanced Diet:
A balanced diet and exercise is underrated and this is something we need to begin investing in. When we eat healthy and exercise not only do we speed up our metabolism and promote physical health, but we also promote mental health.
During exercise our body creates endorphins and these hormones, when released create a sense of empowerment, euphoria and happiness, talk about a natural confidence booster! Just remember there is a limit on diet and exercise, stay healthy and do not over do it.
