A lot of us have struggled to keep our self-esteem high during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us have even ditched the self-care practices that kept us feeling confident, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Here are a few tips to try that will guarantee that boost of self-esteem you’ve been longing for.
- What better way to boost your self-esteem than a “You Got This” music playlist?
Jam out to your favorite tunes, whatever brings that surge of motivation and makes you want to dance like crazy… add it to your playlist! Be creative with this- nobody else has to know your secret musical obsessions. It’s about you and what pumps you up! Try this when you wake up in the morning, or right before an important meeting, and notice the difference it makes in your day.
2. Get Dressed!
It can be so easy to stay in your cozy pajamas from sunrise to sundown, especially with the world transitioning to virtual classes, virtual meetings, and even virtual dates. While nobody else may notice that fuzzy unicorn onesie, you sure notice it, and this simple piece of clothing may signal your brain that you are not prepared to work on your goals or to make business decisions throughout the day. So put on the clothes that make you feel confident, productive, like you can take on the world! (and if your unicorn onesie makes you feel this way, then by all means wear it) 🙂
3. Your hair can also have a huge impact on your self-esteem, and caring for it doesn’t have to be so hard!
You can even make your own secret ritual by adding specific essential oils to your shampoo or conditioner bottle. Geranium oil has been used for centuries due to it’s beautifying purposes such as promoting luscious hair and healthy hair growth. Adding a few drops of Geranium to your hair care products and massaging your scalp will do just the trick. Even better, this sweet, calming scent will promote that deep sleep that will lead you to feeling even more energized to face the day.
These are just a few ways to boost your self-esteem during the pandemic, but there is so much more to explore. You deserve to feel good, to take amazing care of yourself, and to look and feel beautiful… even if you’re the only one who will see it. You got this!
