5 Self-Esteem Exercises
Exercise #1 Change Your Physiology
Studies show that changing your posture can change your emotional state. Remember to stand tall, keep your shoulders back, head up, and smile. :) Doing this will not only allow you to feel better emotionally but you will also feel better about yourself.
Exercise #2 Visualize The Outcome
Visualization is an extremely powerful tool for success. Doing anything the first time can be scary. Your brain doesn't know the difference between what you're imagining and what's real. By visualizing a successful outcome you can trick your brain into thinking you've already achieved your outcome in a positive successful way. If you can do it once, you can do it again.
Exercise #3 Write Down 3 Things Every Night You Appreciate About Yourself
Many people tend to focus more on the aspects of ourselves that we dislike, that we forget to focus on what we do like about ourselves. If you write down 3 things that you appreciate about yourself every night and you will begin to train your brain to do just that. Incrementally you will begin to love yourself more.
Exercise #4 Change The Way You Speak To Yourself
You might not be aware of the constant chatter in your head. We all have it and if you aren't paying attention it may be doing you more harm than good. Be mindful of how you talk to yourself on a daily basis whether out loud or in your head. Be kind to yourself. As human beings, we are all always doing the best we can. Remember no one is perfect. Just do the best you can.
Exercise #5 Create An Alter Ego
This one may seem silly but it works. Think of a person real or imagined that you look up to. Someone who inspires you. This can even be a fictional character or a movie star. When you find yourself feeling less than confident pretend you are this other version of yourself and act as if they would act. It just may help you get through difficult situations more easily.
