6 Ways to Improve your Self-Esteem for Women

Self-esteem is the opinion and view that we have of ourselves. While healthy self-esteem is the goal and ideal, everyone struggles with low self-esteem from time to time. It takes work to feel positive about ourselves and life in general, but when we do, we can deal with the natural ebbs and flows of life much better.

There are many causes of low self-esteem, but it can stay with you when you suffer from it. Signs that you’re dealing with low self-esteem are not feeling confident, constantly comparing yourself to others, being resistant to criticism, and common mental health disorders like anxiety and depression.

If you’re looking for ways to improve your self-confidence and self-esteem as a woman, keep reading for feasible ways to improve it.

Staying Social 

Human beings are social creatures by nature, and though we live in a world that feels more connected than ever, many women still struggle with social isolation.

Building positive relationships with people who appreciate and uplift you can be a game-changer regarding confidence and self-esteem.

If you have people in your life that bring you down, slowly spend less time with them or tell them how you feel and set up healthy boundaries.

Take Care of Your Physical Health 

When we physically feel well, also we emotionally will feel well. Taking care of your health includes everything from eating a healthy diet to getting plenty of sleep, and addressing any health issues that negatively affect your self-esteem.

From dental work to products for vaginal odour or acne treatments, addressing health issues that bring you down can go a long way in lifting you.

Honor Your Skills

We all have things we’re good at, and honoring these skills is imperative to building up your self-esteem. The first step is to recognize what you’re good at, whether being a natural leader, an excellent home chef, or a skilled listener.

In addition to recognizing what we do well, honoring it and doing it is great for self-esteem because we tend to get a mood Boost from participating in activities we know we’re good at. 

Give Yourself a Break 

Even if you’re good at forgiving others and giving them a break when they make mistakes, are you allowing yourself the same grace?

You don’t have to be perfect in everything you do, and you don’t even have to feel great about yourself all the time.

We all have times when we feel down in ourselves, but next time, give yourself a break and recognize that this is only a temporary setback, and you can overcome it.

Saying “No.”

While there is value in being generous, there is value in setting boundaries and saying no. You can’t pour from a half-empty glass, so honor yourself, your self-esteem, and your time by learning to say no.

It would be best if you had especially said no to individuals and activities that you already know trigger low self-esteem. Being a people-pleaser may seem like something that would make you feel good, but it tends to do the opposite, easily overwhelming you in your work and personal life and causing unnecessary stress.

Being supportive is great when you can, but your self-esteem should come first.

Forgive and Forget the Past 

If we’re all being honest, we all have a past, and many things in our past can negatively affect our self-esteem. If this resonates with you, you need to forgive yourself for things in your past that you did to others or yourself.

You can only move forward with better self-esteem by accepting that the past needs to stay in the past.

Moving forward, focus on building a strong foundation as an individual with healthy self-esteem.

Struggling with low self-esteem isn’t something that is going to change overnight, but by implementing the above ways to boost your self-esteem, you’ll be on your way to the confidence and mental health everyone deserves.

If you still struggle with intrusive thoughts, anxiety, or depression, It’s always important to check with your GP or book an appointment with a therapist or other medical professional trained to help; you deserve self-love.

Here’s to your health!
