Remember You’re Fabulous: Our Confidence-Boosting Tips

by James P. Outreach & PR Executive

It’s clear that we’re experiencing a confidence crisis. But we really shouldn’t be. Everyone is fabulous in their own way, and we want every woman to know that. That’s why we’ve rounded up our best tips for adding confidence-building activities into your wellbeing routine. 

Take inspiration from wellbeing influencers 


Queer illustrator Florence Given, who shot to fame on Instagram, is known for her powerful, feminist slogans. Her debut novel, Women Don’t Owe You Pretty, supplements her empowering designs to instil confidence in womenIts release has seen her surge in popularity, as women seek a much-needed confidence boost. Because we know we practice self-care and beauty for ourselves and nobody else. 

Elsewhere, influencers including rapper Lizzo, model Iskra Lawrence, content creator Em Ford and journalist Kat Hawkins are using social media to spread body-positive messages. Their aim is to reduce negativity and stigma around traditionally atypical bodies. These influencers share positivity around bigger body sizes, skin conditions and disabilities to fight the media-driven narrative that all women are slim, white and able-bodied with perfect skin. 

Use affirmations 

We know, telling yourself you’re amazing might sound a bit fluffy. But there’s a science behind it and it’s proven to increase your confidence. The key is to be specific with your affirmations. Struggling with your body confidence? Tell yourself earnestly that your body is beautiful and remind yourself of everything it helps you do. Lacking confidence in your career? Highlight your own achievements and remind yourself you’re good at what you do. 


You can combine your affirmations with your other self-care activities, like your skincare routine or luxurious facial massage. Scientific research shows that daily affirmations reduce stress and rumination. They are also linked to improved academic achievements, making healthy lifestyle changes, and reduce negative thought patterns. Not bad for 15 minutes of work a day, hey? 

Ask your loved ones what they love about you 

One of the best ways to remind yourself how fabulous you are is to ask the most important people in your life what they love about you. You might be self-conscious about your thighs, but your best friend might envy them when you wear your designer swimwear on holiday together. 


Practice self-compassion 


Self-doubt and negative thought patterns are proven to have a negative impact on your careerAs a driven career woman, that’s the last thing you need. That’s why self-compassion is so important to the modern woman.
