Boost Your Confidence Level

If you would like to boost your confidence level then this post is for you.

Most of us need more confidence in our days so that we can be at our best self rather than somewhat lower.

Confidence comes from within and there are certain things we can do to boost our confidence.

Here I share with you my top three confidence boosters.

The simplest boost to your confidence is through adjusting your posture and physiology. Whether standing or sitting, have both feet on the ground and imagine being rooted to the ground. Sit or stand tall with your shoulders slightly back and head upright with a slight smile on your face. If you want to measure the difference from your normal posture scale yourself before and after 0-10, where 0 is feeling very low and 10 is your most confident, best self. Most people move up at least three points on the scale, some much higher.

Another tip to boost your confidence is to develop your own daily mantra or affirmation, something that you say to yourself daily. For example 'just for today I will remember that I am a confident person and whatever happens in my day I will address well'. Mantras such as this, rehearsed in your head or out loud, preferably daily, help to rewire your brain so that you think, feel and start to behave as a more confident person.

My third tip for you is to think or preferably journal three things that you have enjoyed and achieved that day at the end of the day before you go to bed. In time your brain will look for positive things to do in the day that can be reflected on at night Also by doing this pre bed induces a calmer more positive sleep.
