Want Higher Self-Esteem? Stop Doing These 6 Things

You want higher self-esteem, but can’t get there. Why? Unfortunately, we are creatures of habit. As humans, we resist change as it often brings up uncomfortable, anxious feelings. When we avoid changing our thoughts or habits (because let’s be honest, even the negative ones can be comfortable), nothing really changes and that includes your self-esteem. When you stop doing what your ego, or your fearful state mind tells you is “right” because it’s “safe,” you begin to gain power over your life, and develop higher self-esteem (What is Healthy Self-Esteem?).

5 Steps To Building Self-Esteem

Therapist, Emily Roberts will teach you how to build self-esteem and confidence with five simple steps.

5 Steps To Building Self-Esteem

One of the misconceptions about building self-esteem is that it can be achieved by outside influences. Many times, we hear that if one “wears the right clothes”, “has better posture” or “updates their look,” it will increase your self-esteem. Although these changes may have the power to boost your mood, they are not long-term solutions. A safety pin can temporarily hide a hole in your favorite sweater, but you need to thread a needle and sew it up in order to fix it for the long haul. The same is true for building self-esteem; outside features can help you hold it together but will not build a solid foundation for life.

Why Giving Back Increases Your Self-Esteem

Learn how giving back to your community, volunteering, and contributing to the greater good can build self-esteem and a positive relationship with yourself.

Why Giving Back Increases Your Self-Esteem

The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the upcoming season of giving reminds us how contributing to the world around you can increase your sense of self. This week, I saw communities coming together to help victims of the hurricane, using individual skills, talents and time to look beyond what was occurring in their lives in order to help those in need.

Take a moment, think of times you have given back to someone, your community, or the world around you and how that made you feel. When we stop focusing on ourselves, shifts take place, and the way you feel about yourself can drastically improve. It allows you to live in a more grateful mindset, which puts you in a positive space.
