What are some ways to improve self-esteem?
#41
I'm in that boat currently where I need to work on my self-esteem. It's been shot down terribly and I need to get stronger for some challenging times ahead. I've done a lot of thinking about this. I find that positive self-talk only helps me when I'm in the mood for it. I find it's repetitive, like when I was a kid reciting prayers in church...it meant nothing, I was just saying it.

In my case, I'm getting my health in order. Physical fitness and making sure my body is flexible so I don't have pain. I'm eating better so I feel better from the inside out. I make sure to shower and do my hair every day. I also do hobbies to keep me happy and busy. I have a spiritual side that I make sure I tend to daily as well. I'm a bit of a hermit, but reaching out to people on forums and online and having their support helps my self-esteem tremendously. Having my pets, taking care of them and spending time with them makes me happy and boosts my self-esteem also. A few small baby step goals I can achieve each week helps too.
