When you don’t take steps to raise low self-esteem, it can prevent you from achieving success in both your career and personal life. It can stop you from feeling as if you can take on new challenges and achieve your goals. To ensure that you have the self-assurance needed to succeed, here are some top tips on how to feel better about yourself.
Start doing what helps you feel good about your body
Our bodies are one of the top reasons for low self-esteem, with many women unable to see the person they want to see when looking in the mirror. However, rather than let your misconceptions about your body hinder your ability to thrive, there are many steps that you can take to improve both your body image and confidence.
For instance, many sources suggest that perfumes and cologne can help to make you feel good, both in yourself and in your body. To find the scent that can make you fall in love with your body again, scentmagic.com offers an array of beautiful cologne subscriptions to make you feel fantastic.
Improve your posture to feel better about yourself
Poor posture can stop you feeling good about yourself too. Many shy or unconfident people tend to slouch when they are sitting down.
However, there has been scientific research to suggest that poor posture can make you lose faith in your own thoughts, and this can directly impact your belief that you can succeed in a career environment.
Then, you should work on improving your posture by consciously correcting it, and by performing exercises that can naturally pull up your posture.
To raise low self-esteem, set yourself new goals
Goal setting can help you to feel good about yourself by giving you a target to aim toward it. Not only can it motivate you, but goal setting can also allow you to reward yourself regularly and to feel as if you are constantly achieving something.
By accurate goal-setting and measuring performance, you will know when you are making progress in your life and career. These goals do not have to be complicated or career-related either.
For example, you may choose to set personal goals like saving up for a new car or customizing a cologne that’s all your own. Learning a new skill can also make you feel good about your talents.
Take a social media detox
Although social media can be a great platform to connect with friends and colleagues, it can also be toxic to your mental wellbeing. Many people find that they compare themselves to others on social media, even though they are well aware that social media is effectively a highlight reel of someone else’s life.
Then, try to limit the amount of time that you spend on social media. You might mute notifications from apps on your phone and switch your mobile off during certain times of the day to minimize your time on Twitter and other platforms.
Want to raise low self-esteem? Look after yourself
Stress and poor physical health can both be giant causes of a poor sense of self-confidence. Then, to make sure that you can retain stable confidence levels, take steps to look after yourself.
For instance, you should practice self-care, follow a healthy routine and diet, and consider taking frequent breaks and time off from work to recharge.

Oh my goodness Christy, I love this post. I had no idea that there was such a strong link between poor posture and believing lies in our minds. Wow, how interesting is that! I guess it shouldn’t surprise me as people who have lower self-esteem tend to slouch and look down at the ground when they walk. 😒 Unfortunately, I do battle with my own self-worth after a difficult past. It is something I have dedicated to working on fighting though. Each day has the potential to be much better than the day before! When we look at our growth in this way, it can really be eye-opening, can’t it?
I definitely agree about detoxing from social media as well. As you said, those are highlight reels from someone’s life, which are highly filtered to come across in a certain way. There are some brave folks who are willing to be real and transparent. We need more of those authentic voices. Everyone needs to know they’re not alone in the challenges and difficult days of life. You do this perfectly. I love how you share so sincerely on YouTube. It’s refreshing, my friend!
Goal setting is definitely a big part of feeling fulfilled. If we lack vision and direction, we will naturally be less motivated, less secure, and less sure of ourselves in general. Accomplishing what we set out to do feels amazing, doesn’t it? Even just the small everyday wins. I agree 100% with you!
I also love the idea of using scent to boost how we feel. I’m a BIG believer in essential oils. I use these topically to increase attention, mood, and general well-being. Essential oils are powerful tools in the fight against poor health in every sense. So I can see how the right perfume would have a powerful lifting effect!
Sending my love to you, Christy. Thanks for another awesome article, full of great advice and love. You are awesome and always make a difference in our lives! 🤗
Dearest Holly, thank you for such a thoughtful comment here. You share your experiences with such love and confidence that I hadn’t realized you struggle sometimes with self-worth. The next time you find yourself having a tough day, I encourage you to think about how much of a positive impact you have on others. Like me 😁! You are so much more than your past. You are strong, resilient, and beautiful. I hope you have a nice weekend <3
