ways to overcome low self-esteem

Before we dive into the 5 ways to overcome low self-esteem,let’s understand why low self-esteem will continue to affect our confidence level until we start thinking highly of our self. Knowing our confidence level isn’t where we want it to be can be very stressful and alarming in some cases. The good news is, we can change the way we feel about ourselves.

Understanding Low Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem is characterized by a lack of confidence and feeling badly about oneself. It leads to feelings of incompetence, worthlessness, and a lack of confidence in a person.  Someone with low self-esteem tends to be hypersensitive and gets easily wounded by others.

Low self-esteem can be deeply rooted, with origins in traumatic childhood experiences such as prolonged separation from parent figures or neglect and in some adulthood experiences such as, sexual abuse, losing a job, failed relationships/getting divorced, discrimination (sexual orientation, race, religion etc) and a general sense of lack of control.

People with low self-esteem often see themselves as victims and the world a brutal and hostile place. As a result, they are reluctant to express themselves, take action and may sometimes miss out on opportunities.

8 Signs of Low Self-Esteem

  • Being self-critical and always apologizing
  • Easily influenced by peers
  • Always blaming
  • Putting themselves down
  • Over-reacting to situations and things
  • Not willing to learn new things
  • Avoiding challenges
  • Been unable to solve problems or make choices

Overcoming Low Self-Esteem

If you feel that you suffer from poor self-esteem, there are a number of simple things that you can do to boost yourself and, hopefully, break out of the downward spiral and increase your self-confidence.

5 Things You Can Do Today To Boost Your Confidence.

  • Seek help: There are so many alternatives out there that can break you out of the downward spiral. Seeking professional assistance is a must. Don’t “figure” it out by yourself. We’ve helped so many people with the aide of our effective hypnotherapy/hypnosis program to change their self-limiting beliefs and boost their confidence and change their lives permanently. Book your appointment here.
  • Think Positive:  Thinking positive about your self will start changing the way you see, carry and express yourself. All you have to do is when moments of doubt kicks in, just refocus your attention on something positive about yourself. Once we focus our attention on something different the subconscious mind follows in that direction.
  • Visualize Differently: Start visualizing what it is you want to achieve and overcome vs constant thinking about what you don’t want. Your mind follows and acts on your dominating thoughts.
  • Do something you weren’t doing earlier: Brush your teeth, take a shower/bath, do your laundry etc. Once you start doing the things you weren’t doing earlier, you’ll start increasing your confidence level gradually. Remember the saying, “Little drops of water, makes a mighty ocean”.
  • Affirm Yourself: Affirmations are a great way to help direct our thoughts and emotions. Instead of calling yourself names and words such as “stupid” “ugly”, call yourself smart, intelligent, optimistic etc.

Finally, remember the wise words of Lao Tzu: “Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.

Do Emergency Weight Loss Plans actually work? 

Emergency weight loss plans do work, that is if you follow a proven method that has given people results. This emergency weight loss plan is what we’ve had success with so let’s dive right into it.

The first day of your plan should be a juice only day. This means either pure water with a squeeze of lemon or some homemade unsweetened fruit or vegetable juices. The latter will help to give you some key nutrients to keep you going. A day drinking just juices will not cause most people any health issues but it is definitely not suitable for those who are pregnant, already underweight or have any existing health problems such as diabetes, heart disease or kidney problems.

When making vegetable and fruit juices, try to use organic produce where possible. Always wash the items carefully before preparation. This is particularly important if you cannot afford organic as you want to get rid of as much of the preservatives as possible. When using celery and other root vegetables include the stalks and leaves in the juice as a lot of the nutrients are contained here. If not using organic, it is best to remove the roots, stalks, and leaves and dispose of them.

Try combining carrots and apples or raspberry and peach. Just juice enough for one serving and drink immediately as the nutrients start to disappear very quickly. You can drink as much as you would like but aim to consume at least 1.5 liters of water so you do not dehydrate. Water should be filtered and not carbonated or flavored.

On day two you can add some fruit to your diet. Fruit has a laxative effect so will help you to continue to lose weight by making your bowels move. It will stimulate your colon and so will increase the amount of waste eliminated by your system. Watermelon is a diuretic so will speed the passage of fluids through your system. Pineapple and Mango will help to stimulate the growth of good bacteria in your gut while grapes will help to counter the production of mucus which can clog your tissues.

Be sure to get plenty of rest and relaxation following this plan and you will probably want to stay close to home in case the laxative effect comes on rather suddenly. Following this 2 day slim down diet will help you to lose water weight and bloating, both of which will make you look slimmer.

The next stage it to cheat on the day in question. Dress for success and use whatever tricks you can find to make yourself look slimmer. This includes standing straight as correct posture makes us all look less weighty. Wear the right size clothes in colors that flatter your shape and draw attention to the good bits rather than the bad.
