Ask people for life advice, and you most likely will get a common answer: 'Have confidence'. True, it may not be as easy to develop self-confidence (you cannot just wake up and be brimming with confidence), but know that it is one of the most important aspects of your overall health.
Just think about all those confident people you have seen or met: you know how they look, how they behave, and they attract the attention of a lot of people. This alone should make you want to emulate them. The question is, how do you do so? To help you get started, follow this three-step plan.
Take note of the things you do not like about yourself.
First things first: take note of all those things you do not like about yourself. It may not have something to do with your attitude or your behaviour; most likely, it has a lot to do with how you look and present yourself to other people.
For instance, your teeth look so bad you no longer want to smile. List this down. Continue adding stuff on your list until you have nothing else to write.
Do something about those things.
From the list you created, come up with plans on how to tackle and defeat them, like with the example given above regarding your teeth.
You may not have thought of seeking the help of a doctor specialising in a dental brace in Newmarket, but orthodontics can actually do a lot to improve your teeth, and your overall appearance. Once your teeth look a lot better, you can expect more positive things to arise from it, such as wanting to smile more often – something that confident people always do.
Talk to your peers and family.
Talking about how you perceive yourself can do a lot to uplift your spirits.
Conversations with your close personal connections can do wonders to your mental and emotional health, and these people who care about you most likely have sound advice that you can also take advantage of.
