The world we live in is a difficult place and can make life stressful. There are so many stressors in our day-to-day lives that can cause us to slowly lose confidence in ourselves.

If you’ve been under a lot of stress lately, there are a number of things you can do to help you relax or to calm your spirit. Consider some of these techniques the next time you’re finding yourself under a great deal of stress:

  • Sit down. Allow yourself a moment of rest to relax and gather your breath and your thoughts.
  • Breathe. Taking deep breaths in and out for a minute or two at a time can help relieve tension that your body may be holding onto.
  • If you have time, take a quick nap. A 15-20 minute nap can help your mind and your body reset so that you can get back to work and be productive.

    Creating healthy habits can boost your confidence in big ways. Some habits to consider adding to your routine to relieve excess stress include:

    • Exercise. Exercise is one of the best confidence boosters you can do. It’s also one of the best, most natural stress relievers to take part in.
    • Chores. Chores are not necessarily “fun,” but getting some quick tasks checked off of your to-do list done before you start your workday can help you feel more productive for the rest of the day. That feeling of being productive is a great booster in your confidence.

      Another great way to boost your confidence is to spend a day practicing self-care. Book an appointment at your favorite salon or schedule a massage that leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Some other ideas include:

      • A new haircut can be fun and make you feel great.
      • A new outfit can boost your confidence as well. Taylor Jay Collection has an assortment of comfortable yet fashionable clothing that was specifically designed to help you look and feel your best every day.

      Push Your Limits
      It’s easy to underestimate yourself. You are stronger than you know. You won’t ever know what you’re really capable of until you push yourself. Test your limits. When you try new things, you can slowly build confidence and realize that you are more capable than you’ve ever known.

      • Head to the gym and lift weights.
      • Train for a marathon.
      • Take a course on a difficult subject.
      • Join a club or learn a new hobby.
      • Try playing a new sport.
      • Climb a mountain.
