Loving and respecting yourself is the foundation of happiness and health. Believe that I am a good person and that I am good enough, how can I get it? U.S.’Womens Health’ introduced expert advice.

◆ Hobbies = It’s good to have a real hobby instead of hanging out on the sofa and looking at your phone. Choose a hobby that gives you a sense of accomplishment in addition to joy. For example, while playing the game’Candy Crush’, all worries disappear. It’s just fun. But the pleasure ends at the same time the game ends. To build a sense of self-esteem, you must choose a hobby that provides both the joy of the moment and the joy of mastery and the sense of accomplishment as time accumulates.

◆ Memories = What did you like when you were in school? In which subject did you receive compliments? Blowing the flute? Soccer? Mathematics? Let’s do the activities you immersed in or did well as a child. The mind is relaxed. You can also feel your confidence boosting because you can use the skills you already have.

◆ Challenge = Try something you have never done before. Wearing earrings in pairs, speaking out even though you haven’t been nominated at a meeting, registering for an online writing workshop… Anything is good. “When you try new things, you know who you are and you believe that you are stronger than you think.” Dr. Naomi Torres-Mackie, clinical psychologist, said.

◆ Journal = Record one thing a day, what you did well. Just good things, thankful things are okay. It works better if you write a journal and then read it aloud. According to Professor Alan Chu of the University of Wisconsin, keeping a record is both a positive way to organize your day and an insurance plan in case you feel bad. On a sad and depressed day, reading the journal again helps to manage the mind.

◆ Music = Listening to music builds confidence. Researchers at Northwestern University in the United States have confirmed that music evokes a sense of power and drives action. It’s better if you know how to play. The idea of ​​being good at something is the basis of your self-esteem.
