Be your own inspiration

Now is the time to start kicking goals with new – found confidence. We always intend to make this year better than the last, and it is universally acknowledged that confidence can often be the key to success.

Confidence is something that comes from our mind and it is directly linked to how we perceive ourselves.

Be your own inspiration this year and emulate the enviable confidence with these tips from Style Magazine journalist Emmy-Lou McKean.

MIND OVER MATTER

We all experience hurdles in life, some bigger than others, but focusing on the positive when things are less than perfect will help you to overcome or make the best of your situation.

BODY LANGUAGE

As revealed by social  psychologist Amy Cuddy, our body language can change other people’s perceptions of us. It can even affect our own body chemistry. Keeping your head held high, shoulders back and puffing out your chest can all help reduce mental anxiety.

IN GOOD COMPANY

Surrounding yourself with positive and supportive people is important. If someone else believes you can accomplish something, you’re more likely to believe in yourself as well. With that being said treating yourself the way you would treat your friends and loved ones will elevate you to become your biggest supporter.

SWEAT IT OUT

Proven to help minimize stress and anxiety, exercise is the best way to sweat out the small stuff and release endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in the body.
