Confidence helps you achieve success and make your own life better, so it’s worth working on it. Today we bring to your attention some very easy tricks that will allow you to quickly improve your self-esteem and have a determined look

1. Stop slouching. Good posture and a proudly held head give instant confidence. In addition, the first is really important for health. Therefore, try to keep straight, raise your chin and look straight. Stop looking down, because there is a whole world in front of you. If you have problems with posture, allocate at least 10–15 minutes in your schedule every day for back exercises. Even in a month, the effect will be noticeable.

2. Slow down. Excitement makes you speak faster and your voice louder, although you may not notice it yourself. Therefore, at such moments it is better to speak more slowly, and also not to forget to breathe.

3. Smile more. There is no such thing as a perfect life without difficulties, but you shouldn’t let problems overwhelm you. And an eternally sad look is far from the best thing for which you can be remembered. So don’t forget to smile. You can even practice in front of a mirror because it will give you confidence. It is enough just to close the eyes, lower them down, and then open and raise the corners of the lips at the same time.

4. Win duels with looks. If you often communicate with people, then this is the time to remember the last time you looked someone in the eye until the moment that someone looked away. This is not about the creepy habit of staring at someone without even blinking. Just try not to hide your eyes.

5. Get rid of shortcuts. Stop thinking of yourself as the person you were before. For example, you have lost weight, but you still feel full. Others notice this attitude towards themselves. So try to get rid of labels and also work on becoming a better version of yourself. Allow yourself to go beyond the limits.
