Self-esteem consists of three elements: unconditional love, unconditional worth and growth This means a deep, quiet inner security that is not easily shaken under duress or after a disappointing performance. Individuals with healthy self-esteem are humble and recognize all people’s worth, according to Glenn R. Schiraldi, Ph.D., author of The Self-Esteem Workbook.
His good news are that there are these successful strategies for strengthening self-esteem.
– Practice healthy habits. This includes feeding your body nutritious foods, participating in physical activities, getting enough sleep and treating medical or psychological conditions.
– Recognize how you’re attacking yourself. Once you can recognize the ways you sabotage yourself, you can work through them.
– Identify and challenge self-critical thoughts. Certain distorted thought patterns enable low self-esteem such as seeing yourself as more involved in negative events than you really are.
Improving self-esteem is not a quick or easy process. It takes time and practice to genuinely enhance self-esteem. Take a look at Schiraldi’s newest book.
