Build Beyoncé Level Confidence

No one is perfect. And sometimes, that’s hard to remember. We’re hard on ourselves and are ultra-critical of every flaw we see. Then, we end up comparing ourselves to others. This ends up being the perfect recipe for poor body image and low confidence levels. How do we combat our inner bully?

1. Unsubscribe and Unfollow

Ever scroll through your Instagram feed and instantly feel horrible about yourself? Whether it’s a vacation you aren’t going on, or an unrealistic beauty standard, social media wrecks havoc on confidence levels. So, instead of filling your timeline with photos that put you down, fill them with the things that make you happy! Follow your favorite foodie or a million pictures of dogs. Whatever it is, just make sure it makes YOU feel good.

2. Pay it Forward

Really love that lipstick your coworker is wearing? Let her know! Make someone else smile. Because you know what they say, a smile is contagious.

3. Exercise Because It Feels Good

NOT because you ate ice cream yesterday. NOT because you want to drop a pant size. Exercise because it’s good for your heart, and your energy. When you start working out for reasons other than cosmetic ones, your body and confidence levels will thank you.

4. Don’t Say Bad Words

Stop using the words fat, chunky, skinny, ugly, etc. Silence your inner critic.

5. Go to Yoga

The whole premise behind yoga is meditation and mindfulness. Women who do yoga actually have higher body satisfaction compared to women who do aerobics. Focus on your own mat more, compare and observe less.

6. Watch Some Ted Talks

Watching Ted Talks will allow you to put things into perspective. Check out one of these!

7. Focus on the Positive

Make a list of all of the things you love about yourself. Don’t be modest! Put them in your drawer for when you need a little pick-me-up.

8. Spread love

When we give love, we receive love. Do a favor for something for someone else, volunteer, read a book. Make a difference!
