All you see online is a brief snapshot of what they want you to see. It’s perfectly curated to make you think that you aren’t good enough, when in fact, their real-life is probably just as dull and grinding as yours is.

3. Be Purposeful with Body Language 

Feeling great about how you look can boost your confidence, even if just for a little while.

Positive thinking helps. I know it sounds new-agey, but it’s been around for a long time.

5. Maintain a Positive Mindset 

A primary key to building your confidence and believing in yourself is taking care of your physical health. Studies have shown that a healthy diet and physical activity help people build confidence and feel better about themselves overall.
