Speak Positively of Yourself– Taking to yourself can at first seem like a really creepy thing to be doing, however, the outcome is higher self-esteem. Try looking into a mirror and saying something positive about yourself. Most people do not realize all the negative thoughts they entertain every day.
Those thoughts over time can wreak havoc because we start to believe it. Therefore, in order to undo and combat negativity saying something nice is essential. Focus on your accomplishments. Say to yourself, “I am really proud of how I finished that school or work project early.” Or perhaps, “I look really nice today!”
Simple positive acknowledgments can have awesome long term effects. Eventually, harmful thoughts will be replaced with good ones and your actions will soon follow.
5 Compliment Journal- This activity is very close to the positive speaking builder, the only difference is that you will write your feelings down. Purchase a journal that will allow you to write down daily 5 positive things about yourself. Can simply be words describing yourself such as: Happy, Kind, Hard-working, Energetic and Driven.
Or you may choose to be more descriptive. Either way is acceptable and will help you to root out insecurities. Never forget that positive thoughts result in positive outcomes. So then, take time to feel great about yourself daily and watch the magic happen!
