December and January can be a huge time of reflection. We make some decision on resolutions we might want to try in the year ahead. Perhaps make some goals or promises to ourselves to make some positive changes. Or simply we choose not to do things that have started to make us feel unhappy or low. Confidence is a funny thing. We can feel at our lowest when we start to put too many demands on our time and how we feel. However, often making simple lifestyle changes or placing our focus in the right way can help to boost confidence as well as feeling good in other ways. So I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can do it.
Make some investments to your wardrobe
How you look can have a huge impact on your life, so it is important to ensure that you look and feel your best. A great tip is to make some key investments with your wardrobe or even change things up a little. Taking a look at the clothes you have could identify where things no longer fit right, or with some repair such as hemming mens pants could mean that you add a new lease of life to an older item. However, you might also want to think about your wardrobe and make some good changes, such as whether or not you could have a capsule wardrobe instead. This is where you have pke pieces that could easily be mixed and matched to create outfits. Many people do this for specific attire like work clothes or going out. But once you get the hang of it you could apply the system to your whole wardrobe.
Change your diet dramatically
Your diet could be the one thing really letting you down. Too much junk and not enough of the good stuff could seriously be zapping your energy levels, affecting your skin, and how much sleep you get even, surprisingly. While we can all afford to have a little indulgence in our life, striking the right balance is key to ensure that you take good care of yourself. Having a healthier diet could help to improve how you feel on the inside, and even mentally with things like depression and anxiety.
Choose to be more active right now
Right now you are either strongly motivated by exercising because you made a new year’s resolution to be, or can’t be bothered because the weather isn’t the best and you prefer to hibernate during the winter. However, if you do start to get a little more active, or instead choosing to be more active each day, then you will find that you can really up your energy levels and feel fantastic. It’s hard to get started, but once you do you will wonder why you haven’t been doing it before.
Single? Now might be the time to get yourself out there
Finally, if you feel that 2018 is the year to meet someone new then be proactive and get yourself out there. It might be starting up new hobbies to meet like-minded people, or choosing to try out a dating app or a specific singles night locally. A few dates could seriously boost your confidence level.
I hope that this has inspired you to make some lifestyle changes that could boost your confidence.
