The year is almost over and 2021 is just on the horizon. It’s about this time that we start thinking of what our new year’s resolutions might be and what we might do to achieve them.

Now, there are all kinds of things you could add to your list of resolutions, and you have probably listed a few of them already, in your mind at least. But here are a few ideas that we hope you find useful. These are the resolutions that will help you build your self-confidence in the year ahead, and to help you feel happier within as you go about your life over the next twelve months. 

Resolution #1: Finally make those confidence-boosting health appointments

We should all take care of our health, and you are probably doing much to look after yourself already. However, is there anything about your overall well-being that is causing you to experience low self-confidence? You might be unhappy about your weight, for example, especially if you don’t like the way you look in the mirror. And what about your teeth? If there are any missing, or if they are broken, you might be too embarrassed to smile often. These are just some of the things that could cause you to feel low.

So, do what you need to do in 2021 to help yourself, and make those appointments. A doctor can advise you on any issues you may be having with body weight, and a nutritionist could advise you too. And a dentist can mend your broken teeth, and replace any that are missing with dental implants. Check this link to find out how much they can be. We aren’t saying you need to feel self-conscious about how you look, but if you do, seek help from the professionals. 

Resolution #2: Ditch your toxic ‘friends’ and make some new ones

As the new year’s saying goes, ‘out with the old and in with the new.’ And when it comes to the people in your life who crush your feelings of self-esteem, it might be that now is the time to say goodbye to them. Real friends will lift you up, support you, and help you to be the best that you can be. They won’t put you down, post unflattering photos of you on social media, and lift themselves about you. 

Of course, if you do have toxic friends, they may not be aware of how they are making you feel. Give them a chance at continued friendship by letting them know, but if they do little to change, find new friends, perhaps by joining meet up groups in your area. 

Resolution #3: Step out of your comfort zone

This resolution is a little vague but you can replace it with something specific. By stepping out of your comfort zone, you can overcome fears and inhibitions that are holding you back in life, and you can benefit from the renewed feelings of confidence you should experience when daring to do something new. So, apply this to your life. Is there something you want to do or try but have never had the confidence to pursue it? Step out of your comfort zone, in whatever way is relevant to you, as you might receive that boost to your self-confidence if you do.

Here’s to 2021 then. We hope you have a wonderful year ahead, in whatever you choose to do when making new changes in your life.
