Feeling confident from inside has become the door-key to many life problems.
How many of you wake up by saying – “Hello! Beautiful, it’s your day, let’s make it big” around 50% of women while others lack behind, because of no support, and precisely hating who they are.
These are the women who feel wrong about their overall aspects, including – personality, frustration with work-life, not happy in married life, lack of love and discouragement on every step of life, and so on – the likelihoods are innumerable.
Too many women even think in this way – “If I just look better, bit skinny maybe I will be more successful,” “If I do not have acne-prone skin, I might be much prettier” “If I get enough money (like her) I will be much happier” – when these kinds of questions pop in someone’s mind, they automatically low down the confidence and surely make you think how worthless my life is.
Instead of filling your head with thoughts of things you wish you had, find beauty in the things you already have.

Learn your self-worth and how precious life is – focusing on your strengths while eliminating the weakness is a polished way to build your empire. Get this straight!
Every morning, praise your beauty because you are worth it, and it automatically boosts your self-esteem and improves confidence.
1. Appreciate your flaws:
Every woman is pretty; in her way, it doesn’t matter what mainstream media is saying, never hide your flaws – appreciate your blemishes. Go-out with a messy bun or a pimple on the forehead, your outer appearances can never dull your confidence. Your ability to shine, even on bad days, is a trait that even the most foolproof Instagram filter can’t compete with.
Think back to when you were afraid to wear crop tops or sleeveless because of stretch marks, but now feel confident in showing to the world.
As an old saying goes – nobody else thinks as much regarding us as we think about what they will think about us.
We know letting go of the fear of appreciating flaws is not an overnight process, but if you keep trying and accepting who you are – you will always feel strong and confident.
2. Spend time with the ones who motivate you:
It has often been observed that our squad plays a vital role in our life. From achieving the goals to destroy beings, our relationships and friendships – contribute positively and negatively to building our self-confidence.
That’s why it has always said, choose your friends wisely, because they are the ones who boost your confidence in building a better body image.
Coffee with an intelligent one, sojourning with the lifting one’s and discussing the business plans with minded ones, adds fuel to your inner critic’s voice.
Relationships or Friendship with such people is a gem to live by. Therefore, one should carefully evaluate the presence of every individual they sit with – if the person encourages, motivates, supports you- be with them because great friends love you for who you are.
Being selective with relationships and friendships is not selfish; life is short, you need to spend most of it building your self-worth and confidence.
3. Don’t say Yes, when you mean NO:
Never please people. When you just don’t want to do something that drains you mentally and destroys your confidence, simply say No. Settling for nuisance things brings no profit to you, and is not worth investing your precious time.
It is always good to help others, but it’s also essential to feel confident that you only say yes when you mean yes. By putting up personal boundaries, you are prioritizing your well-being, which helps increase confidence in your body image.
Just say yes when you really mean it will help increase your confidence and sense of self-worth.
4. Embrace a wellness routine:
Feeling confident and fabulous in your body image is pride, which you should practice daily. When you wake up, go to bed, do something cheerful, be it a 30-minute yoga to indulge in your hobbies, pampering yourself with smoothies to dancing like no one is watching. Doing this keeps your spirit high, and you feel energetic throughout the day.
Giving yourself a fresh start every morning by maintaining a wellness routine, bring confidence in your body automatically. When you feel good, you’ll do good and attract good. It all starts from within ourselves.
5. Practice self-love:
Being confident in your own skin, it’s not only about skin, but it’s also what’s on the inside that counts, too.
You can never be happy if you say harsh or bad to yourself. Loving yourself should be above all. You should always count yourself first, despite what society will think.
If you have made a mistake, instead of punishing yourself, learn from it, brush up your skills. Never make fun of your actions; appreciate it because you have learned something new.
Be a little kind to yourself. The calmer you are with yourself, the healthier you may feel.
6. Give sweet compliments every morning:
When was the last time you gave a compliment to yourself? Ages back?

For a better way out, place some sticky notes on the mirror with positive thoughts, it reminds how wonderful you are.
7. Never settle for other’s happiness:
If you ever feel like you are not happy, or you did not get what you wish for, move out from such situations. Settling for fewer things, or not getting the desires valued, cut down your self-confidence.

Seeing what you eat shows an impact on your overall body. If you have a diet rich in essential nutrients, you will notice the healthy change in your body – your skin glows, hair shines and helps you maintain or work towards your ideal physique. All of these factors can help you feel more confident.
