Three Secrets To Staying Confident
Let's be real, sometimes, it can be difficult to feel confident. Whether you think you're not good enough, not prepared enough, or are comparing yourself to others, we can get overwhelmed by even the simplest situations in life! Being a girl who's always on the go, attending events and meeting new people, I sometimes find myself in situations where I am overwhelmed by my lack of confidence. Whether I am getting caught up in the comparison game or just feeling negative about the smallest thing about myself, I have found there are a few small steps that have a HUGE impact on boosting my confidence!
Here are my secrets
it's easy as one, two, three
1. Take a breath! BREATHE.
We can get so caught up with everything around us; work, people, finances, literally everything can make our head spin. When we get caught up in worrying about so much stuff, life can get really overwhelming! I remember the first blog event I ever went to I was so nervous because it was the first one I had ever been invited to, and I was meeting all the girls I had followed on Instagram for so long for the first time! I was getting so worked up being worried that I wouldn't find parking, I was going to be late, and comparing my outfit before I even saw the other girls. Matt told me right before I left that night, "Remember to breathe!" It sounds simple, because it is! I had to keep reminding myself to just breathe; giving myself a few seconds to calm down helped me feel more at peace and centered my energy so I wasn't feeling so frantic. Next time you feel overwhelmed, just remember to breathe and slow down a little!
2. Reaffirm yourself who you are!
We all have strengths, and therefore we all have weaknesses too. However, instead of letting the focus rest on what you may not be the best at, remind yourself what you ARE good at, what you are skilled at, and who you are. It can be easy for me to get caught up with thinking about what and who I am not, and sometimes wishing I was a different way. But the things we are good at, we should be confident in! Taking a minute to remind yourself that you're smart, helpful, kind, and a good listener, will help your armor yourself with confidence that who you ARE is just enough.
3. Always carry extra deodorant in your bag
for freshness on the go!
Use Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid just once for all-day strong wetness protection. I am going to be real honest with you ladies. For years I have struggled with sweating when I get nervous or overwhelmed, especially if it's warm out! I find that just knowing I have an extra stick of deodorant in my purse helps me feel prepared. Just like you would add a lipgloss to your bag, adding deodorant is just another way to prepare yourself for when you might need it! When you feel fresh and know you're in control of how you smell, you're going to feel confident.
If you are like me, you might have tried literally every type of deodorant on the shelf to try and stay fresh, but nothing has really worked. I used to use Secret in high school and loved it, but for some reason I got away from using it. Recently I started using it again and was reminded how much I love it! I like that the scent is really fresh and clean; I don't love when a scent competes with my perfume, so the subtle fresh scent is perfect. When you start your day you want to totally prep yourself to be fresh all day long; just like we shower and wash our hair, then maybe add dry shampoo and hairspray to ensure the look stays fresh, you have to use a good deodorant to ensure your underarms will stay fresh all day too! Secret Clinical Strength offers faster, extra effective protection from unexpected sweat. When you think about it that way, you're never going to want to leave the house without it haha!
So let's be confident in WHO we are and what we bring to the table! You are uniquely YOU; but it can be hard to act like yourself when lack of confidence creeps in. Take a breath, remind yourself who you are and WHY you are awesome! And don't forget your deodorant as you leave the house; cause feeling fresh is always a confidence booster! Make sure you start dry and stay dry with Clinical Strength Invisible Solid that goes on dry with a smooth, even application. You can shop for it today at CVS Pharmacy!
