Hi Guys, Welcome to the 'You've got this' blog on practical exercises to help you be confident. Feeling confident can be a huge struggle for many people, but the important thing is that it is possible to make yourself feel more confident. After all, confidence is a skill that can be learned.
Today I’m going to share with you 12 practical exercises for building your confidence.
First, it’s important to develop a sense of self-awareness. Take some time to reflect on who you are and your strengths and weaknesses so that you can start to focus on what you need to do to become more confident.
Second, start setting small goals and celebrating the wins. By tackling small goals and rewarding yourself for the success you have, you will start to build your confidence slowly but surely.
Third, practice positive self-talk. Replace any negative self-talk with positive affirmations. This will help to create and maintain a more positive mindset, which will give you more confidence.
Fourth, keep a journal and write down what you’re grateful for each day. This will bring about a greater appreciation for yourself and will help to foster feelings of confidence.
Fifth, practice visualization. Close your eyes and visualize yourself succeeding in whatever it is that you are trying to do. This will help to create the confidence that you need to pursue the task at hand.
Sixth, take on a new challenge each day. This will help push you out of your comfort zone and will help build your confidence as you attempt something new.
Seventh, focus on making connections with other people. A great way to do this is by joining clubs or groups that interest you. This will help you to build relationships and give you more confidence in interacting with others.
Eighth, practice power posing. This is the act of standing or sitting in certain positions to make yourself feel more powerful and confident.
Ninth, take plenty of breaks. Breaks allow us to recharge our minds and bodies, which will help us feel more confident in the long run.
Tenth, take care of your body by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. These activities will help keep you energized throughout the day, which will lead to more self-confidence.
Eleventh, practice public speaking if it makes you anxious. It’s never a pleasant experience the first time around, but with practice, you can become more comfortable with speaking in public and this will give you more confidence for future speaking engagements.
Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help when needed. Don’t be afraid to seek the help of experts or professionals if you need to in order to build your confidence.
