ways to build self esteem

Low self-esteem is a one of the most common emotional challenges in today’s society. Most of us can easily forgive others for their mistakes. Forgiving ourselves is much more difficult. That is because many of us feel, at our core, that we are unworthy and don’t deserve to be forgiven.

Fall In Love With Yourself

In order to be truly fulfilled in life it is essential that you fall deeply in love with yourself. After all, you can’t reach out to other people with love until you are become enamored with your essence. Low self-esteem is rooted in beliefs you have about yourself and negative impulses that cloud your mind. When we feel badly about ourselves, we are more likely to engage in destructive behaviors that damage our bodies, our spirits and our relationships with others.

The Healing Power Of Meditation

Meditation offers substantial hope for people who need to improve their self-esteem because it melts away the layers of depression, anxiety, sadness, shame, addiction and depression. It’s time to cut yourself some slack and discover the beauty that lies within your inner spirit. Meditation provides a safe, gentle nudge to the nervous system and brain that allows you to “reprogram” your thoughts so that the positive feelings can prevail.

Contrary to popular belief meditation does not require extensive training or frequent interaction with a guru. It requires a few minutes of your time, an open mind and a desire to become a happier, healthier person.

Dismiss Negative Thoughts

Set aside a few minutes each day for quiet introspection. Breathe slowly and deeply, filling your lungs with air. As you exhale, imagine all of your negative energy floating away. Focus only on the moment. If distracting thoughts try to invade your mind, dismiss them at once and keep focusing on your breathing.

In doing so, you will discover your essence, your authentic self.

Once you get to know your inner spirit, you will appreciate the beauty in your soul and you will be able to forgive yourself and move forward with compassion for those around you. With practice, you will learn to live in the moment and the changes in your life will be positive and profound.
