Be Unstoppable: Five Easy Ways to Boost Your Confidence Every Day

Every day we read a lot, but how much do we recall? That's why if something awesome is written and I read it, I share it here. This is the first round up of such posts this year and yes, it's all about how to boost your confidence!

Are you ready? Then, here we go!

Be Confident, Choose to Be Happy & Productive

Each of us have an inborn talent - we just need to discover what it is.

Have you see the picture-perfect moms on TV who can rustle up different yummylicious looking breakfasts for different family members? 

That gets to me, saps my sanity. Because I am no such domestic goddess. In fact, I can look like Shrek's grandmother while tackling kitchen chores, racing against time and much more. 

This guest post on Vishnu's blog urges you to get out of your comfort zone and stay productive, even when you don't want to. It helps you to keep your sanity intact...so, go on and do read it!

Don't join the sleepless generation, it's not good for you!  If you aren't convinced, here's an excellent analysis of the 'sleep disorder' we are facing and why it's IMPORTANT to do something about it. Simply put, sleep more!

Appreciate your environment, learn to love the Natural World

Stop whatever you are doing and look around you. SEE your natural world. Better still,feel it. 

Believe it or not, it's more exhausting to be glued to your desk all day or working on your laptop than taking a walk outdoors in a park that has trees and flowers. Being outdoors, spending some time in your natural environment can bring amazing positive energy. Try it.

Better still, educate children to appreciate Nature. Aeon Magazine has a fantastic write-up on how parents are squandering one of the greatest opportunities we have to cultivate in kids a love for the natural world

Break the rules, Defy the age myth

Now I have to confess, I get sucked in my the age myth...nearly all the time. If there's a dance, I think to myself, "It's fun but at my age, I better stick to checking out the dishes on the buffet table." When I think of completing my manuscript, the same thoughts occur, "I should just read all those fantastic writers out there. They are so young and I am getting sooo old to start writing.." That goes for salsa dancing too...when friends say they are taking salsa dancing lessons, I cringe and think, "Imagine doing something like that at my age..." 

Chuck those thoughts, good writing has no age limit, says Sunie Levie. The best part is where she cites examples of writers who have been writing past the age of eighty and ninety. I could just hug her for the awesome examples she has cited. 

I hope this has helped you, and inspires you to create loving rituals for yourself. Now, I'd LOVE to hear from you - what makes you feel that you are at your best? What are your confidence-boosting tips? 

Share some here....and simply .....BE UNSTOPPABLE!
