We are our own worst enemies. It's a cliche for a reason. Once you kick your self-critic to the curb, anything is possible. Methods proven to give your confidence a boost include meditation, daily gratitude, random acts of kindness, and sleep to name a few.
To begin your journey, I recommend enrolling in Yale University's The Science of Well-Being. This 10-week course is free (yes, free), based on science, and guaranteed to shift your focus towards results. Did I mention it's free?
Don't have 10-weeks? I hear you! Let me create a 30-day action plan for you. In addition to completing Yale's Science of Well-Being, I'm currently enrolled in the MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Teacher Training program at Brown University's School of Public Health.
