  • I take extra time with my make up or hair, get a pedicure, or even some nice underwear!

  • I exercise. I've been exercising for years, i would like to lose a few lbs & i have not, even with the work outs (i love food), but makes me feel great about myself. When i don't exercise, i feel like crap! I do it more to feel good than for anything else. It really gets those endorphins going.

  • Volunteer for your chamber of commerce or similar organization so you get out there and feel needed. It will help a lot!

  • Excersize works for me too!

    Also, read positive / inspirational books or magazine articles. Compliment other people. When you see someone, male or female, that has nice eyes or cool shoes, compliment them. You will see some people's face light up, like you made their day (and you did).

    I find that when I fill myself with positive energy, then positive energy comes out of me.

  • I 100% agree with all those that mentioned exercise! Going out early in the morning for a 10-20 minute jog, seriously jump starts my day. Regardless of whether I lose weight, I just feel better about myself and more confident. Also, doing something nice for someone boosts my mood which positively affects my confidence.
