Getting the work/life balance correct is often seen as the best way of having a happy and healthy existence but sometimes it’s difficult to cut down on one so you can really enjoy the other. It can be stressful having to juggle too many things and often, as a result, we forget that our own personal happiness has been left on the shelf as we try to please as many people as possible.
Confidence comes from within and if we’re not able to get the correct balance of who we are and what we do then feeling great about ourselves can often be something of an alien emotion. It is important to value who we are as well as being there for other people and by making just some minor tweaks to your lifestyle you can begin to feel confident and also look amazing.
Below are five top tips for increasing your confidence levels with the minimum of time constraints and if you’re feeling blue or you feel like you’re slightly unbalanced then read on and see what can work for you.
Keeping healthy through physical exercise is a tried and tested means of feeding your confidence levels. If you have a shower at work then why not use your lunch break to go for a run? Better yet, hit the local gym or swimming pool for 40 minutes per day and soon you’ll be toned up and blossoming with positivity. There are plenty of ways to get fit before, during and after office hours and just a few minutes each day can make all the difference to your confidence.
The old adage: we are what we eat, is completely correct but sometimes, when we’re chained to a desk or sandwich trolley, it can be tricky to find the right ingredients. With a little bit of time and will-power you can ensure your whole day can be catered for to increase your confidence and lessen your waistline. Stick to nuts, fruit and raw vegetables for snacks and avoid eating late at night. Give yourself a target but don’t be too harsh if you don’t succeed just try and try again.
From tidying up clothes from the floor to doing the washing-up, making sure we live in somewhere that is clean and tidy will work wonders for our confidence levels. Make sure you have a great vacuum cleaner and set aside an hour a week to clean your house or flat from top to bottom. You don’t have to spend the earth to ensure your living space is a representation of yourself but just throw those curtains wide and make the most of what you’ve got.
What you wear says everything about who you are and how you’re feeling. Try brightening up your wardrobe and purchasing a few special items that make you feel exactly the way you want. Designer jeans, silky vintage lingerie, and that all-important pair of killer heels or boots are exactly what you should consider to help your confidence to flourish. Once you’ve found the right look for you then walk with your head held high and wait for the barrow-loads of compliments.
Lunch breaks, weekends, mornings and evenings, there are so many points in the day that should be reserved just for you. Fill your time with books, culture, physical activities and nature and before long you’ll be feeling great and espousing the values of life to anyone who cares to listen. Find a hobby, join a club or simply enjoy every moment because as soon as you start to get the work/life balance right then the sky’s literally the limit for your confidence levels.
