Here are some simple techniques that may help you feel better about yourself
Recognise what you’re good at
We’re all good at something! Singing, cooking, being a friend, we tend to enjoy the things we’re good at, which can boost your mood.
Build positive relationships
Spending less time with certain people who tend to bring you down or speaking to them about how their words or actions make you feel will help, build relationships with positive people who appreciate you.
Be kind to yourself
We often give far better advice to others than we do to ourselves. Being kind to yourself means being gentle to yourself when you feel like being self-critical. Think about what you’d say to a friend!
Start saying ‘no’
You may feel like you have to say yes to everything, even when you don’t want to – this can lead to you feel overburdened, resentful, angry and depressed.
Give yourself a challenge
We all feel nervous or afraid to do things at times. Set yourself a goal, such as joining an exercise class or going to a social occasion. Achieving your goals will increase your self-esteem!
