Exercises for building Confidence

After reading and learning more about self-confidence, I was keen to know what is that I can do on daily basis to build confidence.

No matter how much we read about something or understand a concept, to apply it in our daily lives, we need to make a conscious effort. This can be done by adopting a few daily rituals which over some time, become habits. In my opinion, these habits help one in building self-confidence.

  1. Maintain a gratitude diary- Gratitude diary helps one in recognizing and appreciating the little things in life. It makes one realize that life is not all that bad and teaches us to find happiness in our connections, achievements, and daily experiences. When we start appreciating our life, we become more accepting of ourselves which eventually builds self-confidence.
  2. Write down every small success on daily basis- Sometimes having an eye on top of the ladder makes us lose appreciation for every step that we take. We keep on waiting for a drastic change and don’t recognize the process of evolution. Keeping track of our small achievements makes us appreciate our process of growth. This appreciation builds confidence.
  3. Look into the mirror and motivate yourself- Often we base our confidence on the way others perceive us. Therefore, when we come across failure or criticism, our confidence shakes. When we look in the mirror and appreciate ourselves, we start feeling responsible for motivating ourselves. We feel appreciated and cared for. It feels good to know that we will always be there for ourselves. It feels good to know that we will always be there for ourselves. Eventually, it contributes to self-love and confidence.

These are few helpful exercises in my opinion. If you have any other suggestions let me know.
