How we feel about ourselves effects all aspects of our life. Feeling good can give confidence and motivation to meet challenges and seek out fulfillment. Feeling bad about oneself can hold you back and keep you back from successful. Either way, self-esteem can have a big impact on wellness.
Self-esteem is a sense of self-worth. It is what you think of yourself and how you value yourself. It can include how you feel about your physical appearance, behavior, ability, intelligence, or emotions. Self-esteem grows and changes over time. It is shaped by the individual and those around them.
Some may mistakenly believe that actions like being more successful, losing weight, making more money will fix self-esteem. However, negative thought patterns will continue not matter what success is made. Negative self-esteem is not concerned with reality. Steps that may help include:
- Take care of yourself. Chose healthy foods and exercise on most days of the week. Feeling good will put you in a better frame of mind to take care of yourself.
- Find things you enjoy doing. It may be putting aside time for a hobby, spa day, or time with friends.
- Be aware of people you surround yourself with. Avoid those that do not treat you well.
