Three Fun Ways to Build Self Esteem

In a bit of a rut? Want to build more confidence and improve your skills? The Coronavirus isn’t helping those with mental health issues. Today, we share three fun ways to build self esteem! These are fun ways to go about it!

Three Fun Ways to Build Self Esteem

Travel- especially solo travel

Travel is always a good use of your time and money, and travelling solo can be so empowering. For obvious reasons with a global health pandemic going on at the moment travel isn’t possible right now, but it won’t always be this way. Have a think about where you’d most like to go in the world, and start planning your trip for the future when the virus is under control and life as we knew it before can resume. If there’s one thing that this health crisis has taught us it’s that we shouldn’t take travel for granted, and how incredible it is that on any normal day we can book a trip, hop on a plane and go. Solo travel is great for your self esteem as it shows you that you can manage alone- if you can navigate a foreign country, what can’t you do?! 

Find your personal style

It’s easy to say that confidence should come from within, but it’s not that easy to be completely happy in your own skin. We all have our hang ups and insecurities, although the right clothing, hair and makeup can certainly minimise these and help us to feel more confident. Work on your skin, issues here are often a result of underlying problems in the body such as hormonal imbalances meaning topical washes and over the counter treatments won’t be that effective. In other cases, your skin might just need a pamper and cleanse after being subjected to pollution and daily stresses, a hydra facial acne treatment will leave it feeling and looking fresh. Your hair will also be strongly linked to your self esteem, so when you’re able to visit a salon. Go in with a vision and have them bring it to life for you based on your hair type, length and colour. Buying new clothes and makeup and making an effort with your day to day look can also help you to love yourself and enjoy your appearance- have fun with it!

Try a new hobby

Hobbies are essential for people of all ages to have, even if you think you’re too busy to try something new, it’s so worth making the effort to fit it into your schedule. This is because hobbies allow you to build new skills, meet like minded people and stay productive on your days off. Do you spend your days off work lazing around watching Netflix and going back feeling like you’ve achieved nothing? Having hobbies prevents this from happening. You could start up a sport, try baking, crafting, blogging, the list is endless. Even right now while most of the world is locked down, there are a ton of great hobbies from home that you could start and would keep you busy and entertained. It’s so satisfying seeing yourself improve.

Cool, Cute, And Entertaining Gifts For Kids

Last year, I went to my son’s family picnic event that was hosted by the special education classes, held at the end of the year. It was so nice to talk to his teachers and assistants that help out in his classroom. After that, I told myself I would make more of an effort to get involved with his class. I am going to chaperone as many of his field trips as I can. I haven’t decided if I’m going to volunteer in his classroom, I’m not sure what how he’d feel about seeing me at school! I also want to help in any of their community activities that his class participates in. This year, we gathered a few cool, cute, and entertaining gifts for kids!

I don’t keep toys in the house just because my son will destroy them or they will be lost, discarded, or worse. Instead, any toys, books, and such that I receive, I’ve been saving to donate to his classroom. For instance,I was sent two different children’s books which I plan on donating to his classroom!  I also have a handful of beauty products that are brand new that I’m going to give to his teachers. I prefer to share anything extra that I receive!
