There are days when we wake up feeling fab — ready to take on the world. And then there are the other days…when it all feels like too much. And while we can’t control everything that impacts our mood (like the weather), there is plenty we can do to inject a little optimism into our morning. In order to look good, you’ve got to feel good. And confidence is the key to both.
Here are 5 to-dos to build confidence into your day.
1. Wake Up A Little Earlier
Give yourself time to get grounded into the day. Sip your coffee in silence, or write whatever comes to mind in a journal. This extra space in your morning can generate a calmer disposition.
2. Exercise or Do Yoga
It’s a fact — getting the body to move creates an uplift in mood and spirit, a total confidence builder.
3. Choose Your Outfit Beforehand
I like to visualize what I’ll wear in the shower–it makes getting dressed much easier, and completely eliminates that whole closet frenzy which without a doubt diminishes confidence.
4. Go To Sleep Earlier The Night Before
When I wake up tired everything feels like a drag from the puffiness around my eyes to the edginess around my mood. We usually have lights off before 11 in our home (kids much earlier) to ensure 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night. The body needs this!
5. Give Gratitude
I’ve got this little practice…it only takes two seconds, but it’s incredibly effective. When I step out of bed each morning, I put both feet on the ground, and remember something I’m grateful for. It’s just a simple way to add some pep into your step.
