Do you need to boost your confidence? Read this for some advice

*Collaborative Post AD*

Most of us change after we have children. In fact, I got so used to the little family bubble I had created that by the time I went back to work after maternity, I felt like a different person. So much so that in a large, busy office filled with loud people with even louder personalities, I felt more like a mouse coming out of my little mouse hole. My confidence had taken a bit of a knock…but you don’t have to be raising little ones to feel un-confident, or nervous in social situations. A lack of confidence affects more people that you might think.

So, with that in mind, here you’ll find 4 ways you can help give your confidence a bit of a boost.

Brighten your smile

Nothing screams confidence more than a gorgeously healthy looking smile. And it’s easier to achieve than you might think. Even if you brush 3 times a day and regularly visit your dentist – check out Weybridge Dental if you’re looking for a new dental practise – everyone’s teeth look a little dull and discoloured over time. So, if you want to give your smile a boost and your confidence have a look into tooth whitening and see what a difference it can make. You won’t be able to stop sharing your smile with everyone!

Take care of your body

How can you feel good about yourself and feel confident if you’re not taking care of yourself? Whether its lack of sleep, a poor diet or just a sedentary lifestyle, all these things can take their toll on your body and your mental well-being. If you make self-care a priority then your confidence will increase. So move your body more, eat plates that are piled high with leafy greens and high proteins, try to get as much sleep as you can and reduce your alcohol intake. Your body – and then your mind, will thank you.

Help someone else

It might sounds like the opposite of what you’re trying to achieve but actually helping someone else gives you the chance to reflect on your life and your current situation. It enables you to feel grateful for what you have, and you’ll feel incredible for helping someone else. Try volunteering at a charity, teach someone, or assist someone with a daily task there are lots of little ways you can make a big difference.

Face it head on

You know what they say about facing your fears? It’s always best to tackle them straight on. Doing one thing that scares you every day will make you feel more confident. Why? Because you’re gaining confidence with every fear that you face. Whether you think you’ve conquered it or not. Getting out of your comfort zone will give you the boost you need. So, speak up at that meeting, go and say hello to that new mum in the playground, hold your head up high and you’ll feel your confidence soar.
