Top Tip - IMPROVING SELF ESTEEM


As with Maslow's hierarchy of needs, Self Actualisation or Self Esteem is the highest point.  Self esteem is a person's overall sense of self-worth or personal value.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

  • Learn to accept yourself for who you are and don't try to be like others or who others want you to be
  • Make a list of positive statements about yourself that you can repeat on a regular basis e.g. 10-20 times a day!
  • Regularly tell yourself that you are a good person and deserve to be happy
  • Set yourself small challenges everyday and gradually build up to bigger ones.  When you achieve them reward yourself
  • Challenges are things that take you out of your "comfort zone".  Comfort zones are like muscles, the more you stretch them the more flexible they become
  • Focus on your strengths.  View failures as ways to learn
  • Do things that make you feel good.  It doesn't matter what it is
  • Exercise regularly as this improves overall mood and self esteem
  • Do something to help others e.g. help a neighbour, do some charity work, etc...
