Hard as it may be to believe, 2022 is just around the corner, which means that many of us have already begun thinking about our new year’s resolutions. However, no matter how optimistic you may be feeling about this year’s resolution – it’s a well-known fact that the majority of them fade out before we hit the spring.
While there are many different reasons why you may leave your resolutions behind, it’s often due to the fact that we set ourselves unattainable goals that are hard to stick to. As a result, it’s too easy to slip between our fingertips. However, that doesn’t mean that change is not possible – it just means that you need to change what you are working towards and how you view this resolution.
For example, why wait for the new year to bring around change – when you can start making positive changes in your life today? Furthemore, it’s also important that you figure out exactly what you are working towards. For example, if you’ve set yourself the goal of losing weight or getting in shape – your actual goal might be to feel more confident in your skin – regardless of what the scales say.
Therefore, if your goal for 2022 (and beyond) is to feel more confident – here are some top tips that you can use to get you started!
- Set yourself small challenges each week. While stepping out of your comfort zone can be incredibly difficult, there’s no denying that there is joy in taking on a challenge. This is because it can reinforce feelings of self-worth whenever we tick a new goal off our list. However, setting smaller goals is much more beneficial as they are easier to obtain, making you less likely to lose motivation.
- Brighten up your smile. There are many different factors that can limit your confidence. However, studies suggest that around one-third of adults are unhappy with their smile – and have noticed a drop in confidence as a result. Therefore, if you want to feel better when looking in the mirror, it’s time to start taking better care of your dental health. Thankfully, there are various ways in which you can achieve this goal. For example, you should start by making sure you brush your teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and make the most of all dental services that are available to you.
- Work on your body confidence. As mentioned previously, we often attribute our confidence to how we look or how others will perceive us based on this. This is due to the unfortunate fact that we live in a society that puts worth on people based on their appearances. While the tides are currently changing, and we are learning to accept the fact that all bodies are beautiful, there are various steps you can take to work on your body confidence. For example, you can work out more often or treat yourself to stylish new outfits. You should also follow body-positive influencers on your social media so that your feeds are full of accounts that make you feel good.
