How to Feel More Comfortable In Your Own Skin
Even the most confident people on the planet have moments of self-doubt, moments where they aren’t at the top of their game, and moments when they feel riddled with insecurity and anxiety about the same kinds of things that everyone else is dealing with on a day-to-day basis.
However, those supremely confident people usually have a number of coping mechanisms that there are able to put into place to help them effortlessly and almost immediately get through these lapses in confidence – giving them the ability to plow through almost any situation and rebound quickly from incidents that would have stopped someone else dead in their tracks.
Here at Ottawa Counselling Services, we are going to be able to share with you a couple of tips and tricks that you’ll be able to put together to boost your confidence through the roof when you are feeling a little low.
Stay as far away from destructive emotions as possible
The very first thing that you’re going to want to do is to embrace the fact that your mind is able to be influenced easily from the dominant emotions that you’re feeling. You need to cut out destructive emotions just as quickly as possible if you’re going to have any chance at rebounding.
This isn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination, and is definitely going to require practice. The good news is, everyone has the ability to build their own mental force fields to protect against destructive emotions in the first place, and everyone has the ability to walk away from destructive situations so that they are able to rebound.
You change your emotions by changing your motions
There is a very real link between the level of confidence that you feel and how you’re moving your body at any particular point in time.
Researchers all over the world have proven this link, is so if you’re ever looking to give yourself an extra shot of confidence, think about your posture (shoulders back and head up to give yourself an instant boost), think about the way you smile, and think about how you’re using your eye contact to survey the room or to communicate with others without having to say a word.
If you really need to boost your confidence, go for a quick run or squeeze in a workout. You’ll notice a big boost in self-confidence once you get the blood pumping and your body working.
The power of therapy
Different types of therapy such as talk therapy and hypnotherapy can equip you with the tools needed to improve your self-confidence and feel more comfortable in your own skin. Contact Ottawa Counselling Services to set an appointment at your convenience.
