MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Listen to yourself

We often criticize ourselves in our own heads and that damages our confidence.

Refrain from talking to yourself in negative terms. Know that you're good enough.

Forgive yourself

Most of us have been getting angry at ourselves for trying so hard to be perfect and then we beat ourselves up when we fail. 

Accept that you're stuck inside your own imperfect skin. 

Accept yourself
  • Accept the body that you have today. Try to be the best person you can be in the body that you have, and that's as much as you can do.
  • Accept your income and success level as they are. Less stress with less income can be your answer to be happier.
Avoid toxic people

Avoid tying yourself to clients, business partners, investors, or employees who make you unhappy. 

There's no reason to put up with people saying or doing things that constantly break you down.

Prioritize your health

Take care of your health. Exercise, take supplements, cut out sugar, but don't beat yourself up if you have a treat on occasion.

Stop skipping meals

Letting your blood sugar sink sends stress signals to your brain. 

If you really can't stop and grab a meal, make sure you have healthy snacks at your desk.

Breathe

Simple breathing exercises can calm you down and not let stress get to you or make you sick.

Give yourself a welcoming space

Make the effort to create a pleasant space to make you smile. Declutter and order your environment the way you like it.

Get some sunlight

Working in dark spaces is very unhealthy. Try to change your environment to gain access to natural light, or invest in full-spectrum light bulbs. 

Above all, make sure to get outside for a walk as often as you can.

Buy premium products

Consider buying better quality products for yourself instead of only buying them for others.

Every time you use them, you're reinforcing to yourself that you're worth more.

IDEAS

For many people, the most harshly judgemental responses are the most natural. Indeed, we may even take pride in being hard on ourselves as a sign of our ambition and resolution to be our best possible self. But a wealth of research shows that self-criticism often backfires – badly .

Instead of chastising ourselves, we should practice self-compassion: greater forgiveness of our mistakes, and a deliberate effort to take care of ourselves throughout times of disappointment or embarrassment.

Express gratitude

Research reveals that small and regular positive experiences have a greater impact on your life satisfaction than a few notable events of achievements.

Expressing gratitude can make you feel better about yourself and your life. It can make you feel more grounded, humble, and connected to the world around you.
