Confidence-Growing Strategies for Individuals Who Are Struggling

By Emily Graham



Life can be cruel. When we get knocked down, a comeback can seem impossible. Despite this, rebuilding self-confidence and triumphing throughout life is within your grasp. Pursuing activities that enhance self-image increases your odds of success. What follows are a few activities that'll have you bounding out the door, eagerly taking on any challenge.


Freshening Homes

One difference-making step is enhancing living quarters. The cozier your nest, the less stress you'll feel. Get in touch with the interior designer deep within you and revive your abode. Hang meaningful mementos and family pictures in spots where they'll bring the most joy. Replace old furniture with new pieces that feature warm, light hues such as orange, beige, or lavender. Apply feng shui to determine optimal positioning.


Family members may balk at your redesign choices. Turn their attitudes around by decluttering and tackling a deep clean. Conclude by opening windows and allowing fresh air to blow inside. 


Forcing Smiles

Although it may seem awkward, try making yourself smile. Scientists believe this action can trick your brain into being happy. It's free and only takes a second. See what happens when you look in the mirror and plaster a grin on your face.


Hypnotizing Exercises

Similarly, it is possible to strengthen inner positivity through self-hypnosis. By using the Best Me technique, you can calm yourself down and heal past traumas. Once you've mastered the basics, you're ready for the more advanced step of envisioning yourself attaining whatever goal lies before you. 


Start Exercising More Often

When you look good, you feel good. That's why exercise is such an important part of maintaining both your physical and mental health. Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise can help to improve your mood and reduce stress levels. Not only that, but exercise also releases endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects. Furthermore, exercising regularly can help to give you a more positive body image. When you see yourself becoming stronger and healthier, it can be a huge confidence booster. So if you're looking to boost your self-esteem, make sure to find an exercise routine that suits you and get moving!


If you have a dog, get them involved in your new exercise routine! For many people, working out with a furry friend by their side is the best way to stay motivated. Dogs make great workout buddies for a number of reasons. First, they provide built-in accountability—it’s harder to skip a workout when your dog is counting on you to take him for a run. Second, they’re always eager to please, which means they’ll probably be just as excited about working out as you are. And finally, dogs make excellent motivation: studies have shown that people who walk their dogs are more likely to reach their fitness goals than those who don’t. Just remember to get some good gear for your pet (an escape-proof harness is a good place to start) to ensure their workout is as comfortable as yours!


And last but not least, if you’re into Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, consider signing up for training at Mad Science Judo & Jiu-Jitsu. We offer kids and adult classes, so you can bring the whole family.


Changing Careers

If your lack of confidence stems from holding down an unsatisfying job, it may be time for a change. The web is brimming with opportunities for freelancers. Alternatively, you may wish to start your own business. To thrive as an entrepreneur, you must have a solid business plan. Start this document by describing your venture. Continue with sections outlining your operation's selling methodology, corporate structure, and funding needs. Be sure to include financial projections along with other data in the appendix.


Seeking Support Systems

Even after making changes big and small, you might still have overwhelming stress and anxiety. Connecting with a mental health professional could be appropriate. The prospect of another responsibility filling up your schedule is likely unappealing. Online therapy delivers the same results without the commute. Pursuing internet-based psychiatry opens up a larger pool of therapists, and it costs less, too. If discretion is a primary concern, know your conversations are secure and private. Typically speaking, psychiatrists offer complimentary consultations. Therefore, you can feel confident you're talking with someone who matches your needs.


These are only a few tactics people use to rebuild their determination and spirit. Plenty of others are available to those who dare seek them. So, find a strategy that works for you — whether it’s exercising or finding a new job — and pursue it. You may discover that your confidence soars as a result.
