How-To: Have More Confidence In Yourself

Being shy is not a bad thing! However, if it’s because of a lack of confidence, you shouldn’t get down on yourself! Feeling beautiful can do wonders for your self-esteem, and every belle should feel confident in her own skin. If you’re in desperate need of a confidence boost look at some of these tips to become more confident.
I Love Myself. If you tend to forget these three great words, then remind yourself. No one is perfect, but everyone can be positive.
  •  Stop labeling yourself. Telling people you are shy will project that image causing them to be more dominant around you. You’re no longer a shy belle, just more of a reserved and poised belle!
  • If you find yourself thinking negatively about yourself, turn it into a positive self-improvement. This will make whatever you’re feeling down about more attainable. Change your way of thinking for the better.
Be Anxiety Free. Sometimes the anxiety of being in the center of attention or put on the spot is the worst part. You need to get rid of this anxiety so you can overcome the stress that comes with certain situations. Do activities like yoga or meditation to help keep you relaxed and ready for any anxiety filled situation that may come your way.  You can also practice breathing exercises before a stressful situation so your nerves don’t get the best of you. Look into what works best for you!
Face Your Fear. Probably one of the most important things to remember is to not run from intimidating situations. When your confidence is tested, face your fear! Belle, you’re never going to gain confidence if you don’t put yourself out there. Overtime you’ll find yourself getting less anxious and your confidence will increase.
Whether you get shy around friends, boys, professors, or coworkers, it is important to have confidence so you can express your opinion. Give yourself an image boost and you’ll find yourself happier in the end.
