Top 25 tips to increase self-worth

Top 25 tips to increase your self-worth

  1. Write down 7 minor goals for the week and tick one off each day as you achieve it.
  2. Read a book a month. Reading a book is an achievement in this technology and media driven world and reading a full book is a great way to achieve a sense of accomplishment.
  3. At the end of each day before falling asleep write down something you feel proud about, either on the day or in the past
  4. Tell someone else how much you appreciate them, being able to be open and honest is great for self-worth
  5. Say no! Learn the skill of saying no without offending the person asking
  6. Everything you do, do to the best of your ability even if it’s doing cleaning or something equally as mundane, develop a reputation as someone who takes pride in their work
  7. Walk tall and proud. Walk as if you’ve got somewhere to go and you need to be there now, never run just walk tall and quickly
  8. Dress as smart as you can for each occasion, whether it be work, meeting a friend, or going for an interview.  Take pride in your appearance
  9. Do something for yourself every day
  10. Learn a new skill or take up something you’ve always wanted to do and stick with it
  11. Speak up for yourself in your life, this might be hard to do at first, but it will be amazing and will improve your self-esteem and feelings of self-worth will soar
  12. Sing out loud to your favourite song, in the shower, in the car or in public if you’re brave enough!
  13. Stop being critical and be kind to yourself
  14. Do you have people in your life who suck out all your positive energy and drag you down? If so, reflect on the relationship and ask yourself “what value do they add to my life?”. If the answer is non, then decide if you want to keep them
  15. Congratulate yourself each day on all the things you have achieved rather than focus on the things you didn’t do
  16. Give someone a compliment and make their day. If you receive a compliment from someone, say thank you and take a few moments to enjoy the feeling
  17. Reward your success each day regardless of whether they are large or small. Write them down so you can look back and remind yourself of how great you are
  18. Be true to yourself and never let anyone force you to break your core values
  19. Stop the gossiping! Take yourself out of those situations as they bring down the mood
  20. Reduce your time watching the news for a week and gauge how you feel about yourself and the world around you
  21. Make a decision to help someone who needs it this week. Even small gesture can make someone’s day and the feeling you will receive in return will be worth the effort
  22. Be honest with yourself and others. Negativity is way more draining than positivity
  23. Remember to live your life and sometimes it’s worth taking a risk or two
  24. Listen to your self-talk and turn down the volume on the little person criticising you and turn up the volume on the praise
  25. Don’t be afraid to accept help from other people, it means they respect you enough to help you with something
