Confidence Boosters

You know those days where everything is going wrong, and you don't even like looking at yourself in the mirror? Those days are the worst. I'm a firm believer that confidence is one of the most important traits that someone can have. How can we expect others to love us and be confident in who we are, if we can't do it ourselves?

Everyone has those days where confidence are lacking. But here me when I tell you that there are a few sure fire ways to get back in the business of loving yourself and every aspect of who you are.


Brush your hair // I looooove brushing my hair. In fact, it stresses me out when people don't brush their hair. I get that some hair types can't brush their hair, but this is an instant way to calm me down when I'm upset, and one of the few times I'm excited to have thin, straight hair. It always feels so smooth and shiny and soft and clean. Mmmm I love it.

Put on a clean outfit // Raise your hand if you tend to sit around in dirty tshirts and running shorts all summer long... *oops.* Even during the school year, let me tell you, there is no better way to feel amazing about yourself than by putting on a clean outfit. (Even if it is just another tshirt and running shorts.)

Do your makeup // I've really been on a makeup kick recently. Even though I don't really leave the house all that often in the summer (working from home, not to mention it's 100 degrees outside almost every day), it still feels nice to have a "face" on. And that way, I'm prepared if I ever do leave the house! It's amazing what a bright color of lipstick can do to my confidence.

Listen to music // When I was really feeling down and out this past semester, I found a great playlist on Spotify called "Confidence Boost." A lot of the songs are just so fun to sing along with in the car or dance to down the street while walking to class.

  4. I love doing makeup! It always calms me down and I look forward to doing it when I'm going out somewhere. I totally feel you on the brushing the hair thing, I have naturally curly hair so I can't brush it if I want the curls to be prominent, but 9 times out of 10 I end up brushing it because to not to stresses me out!

  10. When I put just that little bit of effort in to an outfit I always feel so much more confident. Something about looking put together, I dunno, it just works for me. :)
