From 0 to 100: How to Build Confidence

“Nails done, hair done, everything did!” Whether you’re “done up” or dressed down, confidence is something we should all try to achieve. Confidence is a trait we can always develop and improve at any stage of life. Most us battle with self-confidence at some point. While some people seem to possess it effortlessly, others can struggle with it well into adulthood. In reality, we may not always be confident and that is normal. Confidence is all about doing things that make you feel good about yourself. It’s an inner light that shines when you follow your heart and believe that your life has meaning. If you feel like your confidence is very low, below are several solutions that will build up your confidence from 0 to 100, real quick.

 

Invest in Good Skin & Hair Care

I’m sure some people may say that confidence has nothing to do with the outside. While this can be true, it’s important you feel good on the outside too. An unhealthy appearance can affect your self-confidence. People often hide who they are due to skin issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, or something more serious. These problems can be mirrored in your hair whether it’s problems with breakage or thinning. Investing in skincare and haircare is a good place to start. Find your favorite products that will help you feel better about your skin. Take “spa days” where you do nothing but wash your hair. Wear a facial mask and chill. When you start taking care of yourself outwardly, you will begin to feel better on the inside.

 

Dress Your Best

Wake up every morning ready to show up for the world. It doesn’t matter whether you work at an office or you have your own business, getting dressed will boost your confidence. If you don’t like your current wardrobe, considering switching things up. Wear clothes that suit your style and make you feel good about yourself. Wearing your best clothes will boost your confidence by a couple notches.

 

Always Wear A Smile On Your Face

Smiling increases your happiness. The more you smile, the more you will begin to feel confident. Sometimes smiling more is all you need to do because body language affects our confidence level. If we are always slouching and looking solemn, people will get the vibe that we are unhappy and want to be left alone. This miscommunication can hurt your confidence. Before you leave the house, make sure you find something to smile about and keep it with you throughout the day.

 

Have Faith in Yourself

As much as we can work on our appearance, we know true confidence comes from within. If we don’t believe we deserve good things in life, no one else will. If you don’t believe you can achieve your goals, then who will? Confidence starts with you. Build up your faith everyday by knowing in your heart that you are amazing and can do anything you put your mind to.

 

Keep Track of Your Accomplishments

One cool way to help your confidence skyrocket is by keeping a daily record of everything you’ve accomplished. It can be big wins, like landing the new job you’ve always wanted. However, be sure to count the small wins too! Writing down what you got done will get you comfortable with the feeling of success which will greatly boost your confidence and self-esteem. Soon enough you’ll notice an abundance of confidence in your abilities.

 

Confidence seems like an easy thing, but it’s not! Regardless of your age, it’s something that millions of women work on every day. Don’t forget that at Izzy & Liv, we’re all for boosting your “Culture. Confidence. Soul.”
