(By:Shyllon Esther Oluwapelumi)
Welcome to another edition of Motivational Monday, today would be all about self esteem as we want to charge up for the week!
We are humans and almost cannot avoid feeling down, worthless,detached, useless and all of those once in awhile,however,getting back up and bouncing back stronger is needed!
You might have had low self esteem the previous week, don’t let it ruin you!, here are 5 tips for a new you with a high self esteem!
1. Be nice to yourself
That little voice that tells you you’re killin’ it (or not) is way more powerful than you might think. Make an effort to be kind to yourself and, if you do slip up, try to challenge any negative thoughts. A good rule of thumb is to speak to yourself in the same way that you’d speak to your mates. This can be really hard at first, but practise makes perfect. If you want a few pointers, check out our tips for talking yourself up.
2. You do you
Comparing yourself to other people is a sure-fire way to start feeling crummy. Try to focus on your own goals and achievements, rather than measuring them against someone else’s. Nobody needs that kind of pressure!
3. Get movin’
Exercise is a great way to increase motivation, practise setting goals and build confidence. Breaking a sweat also cues the body to release endorphins, the feel-good hormones.
4. Nobody’s perfect
Always strive to be the best version of yourself, but it’s also important to accept that perfection is an unrealistic goal.
5. Remember that everyone makes mistakes
You’ve got to make mistakes in order to learn and grow, so try not to beat yourself up if you forget to hit CTRL+S on a super-important assignment. Everyone’s been there.(Source-https://au.reachout.com/articles/10-tips-for-improving-your-self-esteem)
