How to Build a Greater Sense of Self-Worth

We are extremely fortunate to be living in the times we live in now. We have a level of comfort not possible before with an overabundance of choice. 
This is a collaborative post 

And the technological age is giving us more than our ancestors ever dreamed possible. But that does not mean that this time doesn't have its own set of very real and unique problems. There is a mental health epidemic that needs to be seen too. In some ways, we know far too much and live a life in comparison to others. However, if you are determined and can do what's necessary, there is no reason why you can’t make the most of now and enjoy an enhanced sense of self-worth. Here are some tips:


Find time to socialize
All work and no play is not good for the soul. Everyone needs to get out of the house and enjoy a few laughs with friends and family. You deserve it and owe it to yourself. It is amazing how getting away from it all for a few hours can bring a new perspective to things. Laughing really is an excellent form of medicine. Also, knowing that you have that support network, people you can confide in, makes it seem so much better too.

Start a hobby
Starting a hobby can give you a better sense of self-worth in so many ways. You may not have even considered this option if you are feeling low, but the whole point, if it is, is that it enables you to stop dwelling on the bad things in your life, and instead you focus creative energy on something productive. The idea is to help you develop other ways of thinking, especially if talking about your problems is not for you. The positive effects of starting a hobby; something you actually enjoy, has the ability to reduce stress and anxiety. A lot of people use it to combat depression. A hobby enables you to say that you have achieved something, which is great for an increased sense of self-worth. You are also increasing your ability to concentrate, a skill which will aid you as you journey in life. 

Eat well
Eating a healthy balanced diet is an absolute must. You should also eat at regular times too, so your body has a regular cycle, knowing when you expect the food. A good balanced diet will promote a good balanced mood. Not only that, but a healthy diet will ensure that your body has all the vitamins and minerals it needs to look after you. It will enable you to lose weight as well. You should start looking up records and get inventive. The best food is always the stuff you make yourself, why not try a homemade baked spaghetti recipe. The more you learn about foods and herbs and spices, the more adventurous you will become. Food is something we all have think about every single day, so make yours a way to heighten your mood. You could see it as a little hobby in itself.
