Simple steps that you can do easily on a daily basis can actually help you improve your life greatly, as HEALTH finds out.
Choose a quiet time and place at home where you can spend just five minutes uninterrupted and do nothing but focus on your goals, what you want to achieve in your life, and imagine your future
as you would like it to be. This will actually shift you into a calmer state of mind and help you connect with yourself.
Standing in a posture of confidence for at least 20 seconds, even when you don’t really feel confident, can have an impact on our chances for success and will enhance your feelings of self-confidence.
Love and accept yourself:
Invest in just five minutes a day to recite positive affirmations, positive prayers, and good thoughts. Loving yourself is a required condition for building self-esteem and in fact, affirmations can help change the way you feel.
Control your anger:
Use the Pull Out technique in which you focus on your angry feeling in your body and then using your imagination, use your hands to pretend that you are yanking it out to throw away.
