Self esteem building activities come in many different forms. Activities such as sports, dramatic performances and cooking are just a few of the many ways people seek to improve their self confidence. In fact, there are so many options that a simple search query on Google will produce thousands of ideas just like these. The trick, though, is to find something that is personal and designed entirely with you in mind. That is what I have tried to do here with these 3 powerful ideas.

3 Powerful Self-Esteem Building Activities

The following self esteem building activities are very general by design, but what you do with these ideas will make them tailor-made for your particular situation.

1. Keep a Journal

• Writing, as psychologists and self-help experts have known for years, is one of the most empowering strategies for improving self-esteem and confidence. Keep a running log of all your successes and deal creatively with your failures. Explore your fears and doubts through your pen, and set goals and objectives for self-improvement. However you decide to approach the subject, just get it down on paper and make it your own.

2. Get Involved

• Nobody knows you like you do, but sometimes it is helpful to step outside of yourself for awhile and become part of a group. Whether you join a team, a club, a volunteer project or even a card circle, participating in something larger than yourself can help you understand who you really are. You will be appreciated for your contribution, and that appreciation may be just what you need to boost your confidence.

3. Confront Your Fears

• Everyone is afraid of something, but for people with low self esteem those fears can become almost pathological. Make a list of all the things which cause you fear or cause you to doubt yourself, and create a timeline for confronting them. With each new fear you face, your confidence and self esteem will improve dramatically.

Self-esteem building activities are not just found in the pages of medical journals and self-help manuals. They can be whatever you decide—whatever makes you feel empowered. Begin today with these three activities, make them your own and begin facing each life situation confidently and head-on.
