7 Things To Do Every Evening To Boost Your Confidence


 Things To Do Every Evening To Boost Your Confidence

Journaling every day is such a powerful way to understand yourself better. Not only will putting down your thoughts on paper help you process them better, but it will also help you make better sense of your needs, wants, and feelings.

Even if you’re not currently going through any major struggles or life changes, even writing down the things you loved about your day or aspects of your life you’re grateful for is an amazing way to appreciate life more.

You don’t need to sit down for hours and write an entire essay on your day, but the simple act of dedicating as little as ten minutes to writing down your thoughts is an amazing act of self-care.

Establish a self-care routine

Self-care is the new buzzword, and that’s only because it’s the single most amazing thing you can do for your confidence. Take a moment to think about the things you do that make you feel good and plan a little self-care routine that you stick to every evening before you go to bed. A self-care routine can look however you want it to look like – from a thorough skincare routine to a long bath with a good book in hand or going for a walk. If I’m in a bad mood, my self-care routine is an automatic feel-good pick me up.  I think it’s the act of taking care of yourself, making yourself a priority, and the “me time” that improves your mood.

Craft your affirmations

The way we speak to ourselves matters a lot, so make sure that every single thing you tell yourself is both productive and worthwhile.

Affirmations are positive sentences that can help you challenge negative thoughts. If you repeat them often, you’ll start to believe them and you’ll soon notice the positive changes in both your life that will stem from that.

Every evening, repeat positive affirmations to yourself and you’ll instantly notice a confident boost. Talk to yourself as though you are your best friend! I cannot stress this enough. I strongly believe in manifestation and how thinking positively while putting positivity into the universe improves your life.

Plan your day

Have you ever felt as though you’re going through the motions of life without really feeling it? Or maybe as if you’re just doing everything on auto-pilot and feeling constantly overwhelmed?

Taking a moment every evening to plan your day and set goals is a really powerful way to set an intention and have a clear map of what you want to achieve the following day. Not only will it help you stay focused, but it will also help you approach your tasks with more intention.

Tip: Make sure these goals aren’t all about work, but also plan fun things like the meals you’ll eat and what you’ll do after work. Include your self-care routine here, too!

Dress your best

This might sound strange, but looking your best is a surefire way to help you feel more confident, so make sure your evening outfit is on point. Get yourself a pair of cute PJs or loungewear (softness and comfiness are both a must), so you can feel cute for yourself before you go to bed!
