How you treat yourself is key to how confident you feel. When you are taking time to invest in your personal care — including maintaining your physical appearance and health as well as fostering positive thoughts and emotions — you look and feel more secure in yourself.
Read on to discover tips on how to look confident on the outside, cultivate confidence from within yourself, and take actions in your life to create an environment where you feel the most self-assured.
Learn to Use a Safety Razor
For men who shave regularly, a safety razor is the perfect balance between the close, clean shave of a straight razor and convenience of an electric razor. However, did you know that your shave routine can make you feel more confident? Not only can maintaining your smooth facade make you feel more put-together, but a satisfying shave routine is an ideal way to prepare for the day. Put on your favourite playlist, use products that are good for your skin, and take time in the morning to focus on you.
Get Enough Sleep
A proper night's sleep offers many benefits, such as enabling your body to repair overnight, helping you feel energized throughout the work week and keeping stress levels down. On average, most men require around 8-hours of sleep to feel fully rested.
Disengage with Toxic People
Taking care of yourself goes beyond maintaining your appearance and health. The surest way to feel less confident is if you are surrounded by people who bring you down. While it can be hard to distance yourself from that friend, co-worker or even a partner, the easiest way to deter negativity is to not engage with another person’s toxic opinions. After all, if any relationship in your life is not enabling you to be the best version of yourself that person does not deserve your attentions.
Practice Positive Affirmations
The act of reminding yourself that you are confident has a powerful effect. Whether you are at a stage in your life where you easily feel self-assured or it’s a quality you are working toward, the more you remind yourself you are confident the more you will truly feel confident. This mental tactic is especially powerful when preparing for an important meeting, job interview or even a first date.
Dress to Impress (Yourself)
Your personality is reflected in your style, and when your look emulates who you are on the inside you will feel more comfortable in your own skin. Confidence grows from within, but showing off your sartorial flair is certain to help you feel more self-assured.
