Are you feeling confident right now? As a busy woman, you’re bound to have a list longer than your arm (and legs), in regards to your family, job, social commitments, chores, and, well, you get the idea.
It can be easy to get stuck in the rut of pleasing everyone else, ensuring that others needs are taken care of. This usually means putting yourself on the bottom of your list of priorities (that’s if you’ve even made it to the list at all). And this can lead to not feeling confident for your own needs.
Maybe you feel a little overwhelmed, and somewhat rundown; further ensuring that you don’t have the energy left to focus on your own well-being and happiness.
Before long, you might be suffering the effects of fatigue and tiredness, and the sense that you’ve lost yourself somewhere along the way. These thoughts will mean that your inner confidence takes a negative hit.
Therefore, it’s time to take a step back (preferably with your drink of choice in-hand), and access your list of priorities so that you end up right at the top.
Don’t worry, there are a plethora of things you can do, and little changes you can make, that will give you a boost and back to feeling confident.
Getting these boosts regularly, will lead to your confidence growing, a more relaxed and happy you, and your self care-game becoming stronger than ever.
The following are some ideas and inspiration for those who feel like they need help to find their confidence, and want to tackle life head-on with a smile.
Change Your Style
A great way to give yourself a quick boost, is to embark on a little change of style. Take a look in your wardrobe. Pull out all those things you haven’t worn for a year or more; this will help to make room for the shopping trip you’re about to go on.
There are often in-store stylists available, who can help you find some new clothes that flatter and suit you. So you’ll end up feeling your best each time you get dressed.
Maybe it’s your hair that you feel could use a change; click here to get some colour inspiration, or book in for a cut and blow dry at your local salon.
Treat yourself to a regular blow dry, manicure, or beauty treatment. This will give you time to unwind and clear your head so that you leave feeling fresh and confident for the week ahead.
Try New Things
Whether you go solo, head somewhere with your other half, or call your friends up to keep you company; it’s always a lovely idea to organise to do something different.
The best way to get out of that rut, is to change things; so, book tickets to a show, go out for dinner and drinks, or enrol in that class that looked appealing.
Putting new activities and events on the calendar will ensure that you’re scheduling-in your needs first, and who knows where getting out and about will lead.
You’ll also have the opportunity to show-off that new outfit, and your confidence will begin to soar.
Little things like switching your coffee and a catch-up from your home, to heading to the latest trendy cafe, with your friend, is an east way to treat yourself in a small way, and get a change of scene in the meantime. Whatever you choose to do; ensure it’s going to make you happy.
