If you’re living life right, you’re taking risks and putting yourself out there—for romance, your career, and your fitness endeavours. Because of this, your confidence is due to falter from time to time. And if you’re paralyzed by your fear to fail, constantly struggling to summon courage, feel comfortable on the dating scene, and exude confidence in everyday life, well, you’re not living much at all.
Confidence coach Steve Errey has cultivated a list of behaviors, tips, and advice so you can drop-kick self-doubt, stop second-guessing, and prioritize yourself instead of people-pleasing everyone else. Here are 16 easy ways to feel more confident today.
1. Work out
Get up and get moving every single day. “We spend so long in our heads that we forget how our body feels or what it needs,” Errey says. Getting bogged down by work and responsibilities can numb the smells, feels, and emotions of everyday life with thoughtless motions and actions. “Exercising gets you right back into your mind and body, as well as releasing endorphins that give you that amazing physiological buzz.”
