You may have just had a baby or you might have been on your parenthood journey for a while now. Either way, if you are struggling to come to terms with your post-pregnancy body and confidence levels there are many things you can do to sort this out. Diet and exercise can help if you want to regain the body you once had or even just simple changes like a new hairstyle can help you feel like your old self again. 



New Wardrobe

If you are struggling with a lack of confidence and self-esteem then a new wardrobe might be the solution you need to help you out. New clothes can make you feel better instantly, clothes themselves can change the shape of your body and hide any parts you don’t particularly like. Take peplum style tops, they are cinched at the waist to pull you in, and then the rouched part helps hide the mum tum you might have. 


Jeans are another great item of clothing that can give you an instant boost of confidence and self-love. Once you find the right pair of jeans you will never want to take them off. It can be a bit of an effort in finding the right pair as there are so many styles, you might find it handy to look at a jeans guide to find out which ones will suit your shape better, as everyone is different.


Get Out There


It is important to remember that confidence levels can be linked to your mental health. You don’t want to enter a downward spiral of not wanting to leave the house due to confidence levels as this could lead to more serious problems such as depression. You might already have a touch of the baby blues or postnatal depression which can cause havoc with confidence and self-esteem levels. 


Arrange some day dates with your girlfriends or significant other, dress up, and feel amazing when you go out, this will build your confidence and help you realize that you do look wonderful and are rocking the mom look. 


If you are single it is equally important to get back out and meet new interesting people. It can get you down when you are just with your children and sometimes it is necessary for some adult conversations. If you are not sure how to approach people while out and about why not take a look at this guide on small talk tips. It will ensure you know what to say and when to say it by the time you reach the end of the article. 


Speak Positively 


Finally, we know it can be hard when you are struggling with your confidence but if you look in the mirror and say positive things to yourself about yourself then this has been known to alter the brain's reactions from negative views to positive ones. It can take a bit of time but if you start with small changes then they can turn into big changes. Start off by saying ‘I look nice’ while getting dressed and build-up to ‘I look beautiful’. You will have that confidence back in no time.
