How to Build your Self Esteem?

How to Build your Self Esteem?

Do you believe that the world is a hostile place and you are a victim? Are you the one who often doubts his or her abilities? If so, you might be showing signs of low self-esteem. Interestingly, self-esteem has nothing do with your actual ability or talent. Your looks, weight or skills are not responsible for your low self esteem. It largely depends upon the fact that how you value yourself.

It has been observed in most cases that self-esteem is often affected by a number of reasons, including ill-health, unpleasant memories from the past, and termination of relationships. Low self-esteem is generally marked in survivors of physical or sexual abuse, victims of racial discrimination or people who have had a traumatic past life.

If you don’t pay attention towards this issue, you might end up developing certain serious mental disorders. Low self-esteem is also the root cause behind the occurrence of mental disorders like borderline personality disorder, depression, etc. However, there is nothing to worry about it. There are certain simple things that are useful in building up your self-esteem.

Here’s all that you need to do to start believing in yourself and be confident about your capabilities:

1. Remember your strong points: Make three separate lists of your strengths; achievements and your qualities that you admire. Take help from your friends, parents and other well-wishers for preparing these lists. These lists will help you in understanding your abilities and goodness. You will be able to believe in your strengths. You must read through these lists at least once daily.

2. Be positive: Optimism and a positive approach towards life are the key to success. Your self-esteem is influenced by the fact that how you look at life. Life is not a bed of roses. It is unavoidable that you will have to face critical situations or problems in life. But, what is important is to face them with courage and a faith in your own abilities. Be positive and stop developing negative thoughts about yourself. Get rid of thoughts like ‘I am a loser’; ‘I can’t get rid of this problem’; etc.

3. Take care of your body: Your outward appearance sometimes works wonders in lifting up your inner-self and spirits. Keep yourself clean, trim your beard or hairs; cut your nails; don’t forget to floss your teeth and maintain overall personal hygiene to develop a feeling of goodness.

4. Sleep well: A good night’s sleep is essential for boosting up your self - esteem.

5. Eat right: A balanced diet is a key to good health. Eating the right food in the right way keeps your mental and physical health all right. Include minerals and vitamins in your regular meals. Avoid distractions like television or radio while taking meals.

6. Exercise: Regular workouts keep you away from mental-ill health.

7. Be cool and comfortable first: When it comes to your dressing, try to put on attires that you can carry well. Wear stuffs that you love the most. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello. Sir/mem, I am engineering student. I think my memory is not good. If I read theory. After some time or in the exam hall I forget. Give me some tips to how can I remembering what I study. Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user. Forgetting is a natural phenomenon of brain. In order to remember things for longer, you should try to read multiple times, write to check how much you remember after sometime, take frequent breaks (say after half hour reading, 5 minute break), regularly have water, take deep breaths to send more oxygen to your brain, don't starve yourself as our brain needs regular supply of glucose to function, have a good night's sleep before you go for your exam as during sleep, short term memory is converted to long term memory. Also, a balanced diet with fresh fruits and vegetables is important to feed your brain with required minerals, vitamins and other nutrients. Take care!

I am 28 year old Female and Is memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal? What Should I do now?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, great question! memory loss should not be considered as a part of aging. Minimal memory loss occurs normally with age, but if it is creating problems it is certainly abnormal. At age of 28, apparent memory loss is usually related to psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depression rather than neurological problems. The good news is it is completely treatable and reversible. Please consult a psychiatrist!

You cannot realistically help her unless you have some professional abilities. Please guide her to a competent counselor and that person will tell you how to help her in a supportive capacity. Besides, this is such a personal; matter that I should not be sharing with you the nature of the connection between her current behavior and the past contributions. So, kindly bear with me that this kind of information cannot be divulged to a third person for practical reasons.

I usually forget what I want to do, my memory is too weak and I am lack of presence of mind, please suggest what should I do?

Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Greetings of the day! There is no such thing as a" bad memory" and everyone can improve their memory, as long as you are not suffering from memory loss as a medical condition. If you want to improve your memory, there are a number of things you can do: 1. Pay attention – Give the item you know you will need to remember your full, undivided attention when you first input it into your brain. For example, listen to the introduction being given to you instead of worrying about what you need to say after, or take some time to think about everything you need to buy before you leave your home. 2. Repeat it– With everything you need to remember, use a minute or two to repeat it over and over in your mind. This works for locations, people, inanimate objects, exam notes…anything you want to stick and stay in your brain. 3. Create a routine – If you need to remember something on a continuous basis, like locking the door or feeding a pet, make it a routine. Create a schedule and do the task at the exact same time in the exact same way every time you need to do it. 4. Write it down – When you have too many things to remember at once, just write it down! The easiest way to “remember” is to make a concrete note. Use sticky notes, mobile device reminders, voice recordings, etc. 5. He foods you eat – and don't eat – play a crucial role in your memory. Fresh vegetables are essential, as are healthy fats and avoiding sugar and grain carbohydrates. You can find detailed information about nine foods for brainpower here. For instance, curry, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and walnuts contain antioxidants and other compounds that protect your brain health and may even stimulate the production of new brain cells. 6. Exercise encourages your brain to work at optimum capacity by stimulating nerve cells to multiply, strengthening their interconnections and protecting them from damage. 7. Get a good night sleep: Sleep is also known to enhance your memories and help you" practice" and improve your performance of challenging skills.

Dear, family harmony depends on both husband and wife. Both should be able to respect and trust each other. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Ejaculation within 2 minutes is premature and this is not related to masturbation at all. However premature ejaculation is more common in people with uncontrolled stress and anticipatory anxiety. Premature ejaculation can be treated effectively with a short course of medications. Also along with that you need to learn and practice certain exercises that will help delay ejaculation during sex and masturbation. Consult online with details for any further queries and assistance.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Relationships will come and go many times in one’s life. You cannot take it too seriously unless you were thinking of marrying this girl. In fact, this is a common problem with a lot of guys, where you look at the first relationship that comes along as serious enough for matrimony. These are important associations to learn how the opposite sex functions and what happens to you around them, and to make the necessary corrections to become a suitable partner. You have put in a lot into this relationship and it has not worked. Leave it but please learn something from the experience. Besides, you don’t want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. Quickly get rid of all reminders of this girl, and do not visit the old haunts that you and this girl used to frequent. For some time avoid people, places, and situations that you two enjoyed. In the meantime, please talk extensively to a confidante or counselor about your feelings and thoughts to externalize it out of your system. Do not bad mouth the girl for any reason but go about your life as quickly and normally as possible. Don’t get into another relationship until you have dealt with this loss completely. Keep these three values in mind: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, always.

I am a smoker from chennai I had been smoking cigerate since last 10 years I want to leave cigerate what should I do now I had been trying since last 1 years but I can't stop smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user, best way for any deaddiction is gradual tapering it down. Suppose if you are smoking 8-10 cigarettes per day then reduce it to maximum 6 cigarettes per day not more than that. Continue this for 15-20 days and then similarly reduce it down to 4 cigarettes per day then after 15-20 days to 2 likewise. Whenever you like to smoke, try to delay at least 15-30 minutes and gradually increase the time interval. The most important thing is to give your body time to adjust with gradually decreasing nicotine level. Sudden decrease in nicotine level produces withdrawal symptoms. Try this method and if successful let others know. All the best.

Is there any treatment of depression in accupunture.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , according to me, there is no treatment for depression in acupuncture because the" mind" is either neurons or brain. Because mind cannot be seen, accupuncture needle cannot work there. Accupuncture needle cannot be inserted inside brain too. Please don't fall into hands of quacks. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. For other four treatment methods, I will help you. Please post a private question to me with all the details. Take care.

If you depend on medicine it may continue throughout the years. It is not good depend on medicine. Sleeping pills get drowsiness, head weight, laziness, may happen. Our natural sleep is best to recovery from ourselves. If you stress. Then overcome from the stress take further remedial measures from the stress. Relax yourself, yoga, meditation will helps to you. Share the feelings with your friends and family members, entertain yourself, feel confident. Feel that it is my responsibility do not escape and do not depend on medicine. If you depend it may have addiction you have. You have very good capability to overcome from this status. Ok best of luck.

Dear Gatik. Relationship problems arises because there is differences in personality. Both of you are different personalities. Therefore, there should be differences in culture, behavior etc. When you both stay together, all these differences get settled slowly over a period of time. Relationship is about faith, trust and mutual understanding. Not about ego, personality, behavior and sex. Take care.
