How much you value yourself talks about your self-esteem. How much self-worth you have is going to have a direct impact in how you act. If you have a high self-esteem, your personality will be more attractive to others, it will be easier to make friends and you will enjoy your life more. Taking good care of yourself in all the aspects of your life is a requirement to maintain your self-confidence. This means taking care of your mind, and your body.
It is normal from time to time to have a low self-esteem feeling day or even week that is been triggered by negative judgment thoughts, being ignored by a friend or a relative, having a few extra pounds, having a bad hair day, or your skin looking dry and lacking glow. A way to increase your self-esteem is to pay attention to your wants and needs. One way I do it is by pampering myself and taking care of my skin. Remember your skin is a reflection of what is going on inside your body, which can also be a reflection of the stressors that you are facing whether real or imagined. If you exercise, have proper nutrition and you have a good skin care regimen plus a series of Hydrafacial Treatments it will help you have a glowing healthy skin. I do my “Hydrafacial Treatments” at the office of Dr. Paul Nassif with Aubrie Cook. Aubrie is a mediclly-trained esthetician.
However, if your low self-esteem is a constant companion; accompanied by depression or anxiety and keeps you from enjoying life, doing the things you want to do and achieving your goals and dreams, you may need to confront the issues from your past that have you with such a negative outlook of life and self-worth. Consider seeking professional help from a licensed mental health expert to change the way you think about yourself. You deserve to feel good about yourself!
