We all need a little pick-me-up or attitude adjustment sometimes, but if you’ve been feeling less-than-fabulous lately, you might need a more major overhaul to get you back to your marvelous self.

While a mini-shopping spree may do the trick (retail therapy can work wonders), you might not need to spend the cash.2

Here are 9 wonderfully effective ways to boost self-esteem… YOUR self-esteem, sweetie!

Let’s go!

1. Ditch the Frenemies

Frenemies can be a drag, literally!

One of the best ways to boost self-esteem is to get rid of the people who are a drag on your natural sparkle and shine.

Who needs the haters, anyway, when you have so many fans?

Ditch the frenemies and move on.

2. Volunteer Your Time

This is one of the most wonderful ways to boost self-esteem, because while you’re helping yourself, you’re also helping others, which is what I like to call a perfect circle!

Volunteer at a local animal shelter, read to children or adults in the hospital, deliver Meals on Wheels.

Find a cause you care about and boost your self-esteem by getting involved with your time, and not just your checkbook.

3. Focus on the Positive

I wish I had thinner thighs, and my hair is never shiny enough, but you know what?

I have gorgeous green eyes and killer abs.2

Rather than focus on the negative, I try to think about, and highlight, all the positives.

4. Be Grateful

Even the most unlucky of us still have something going for us… it may take some creative thinking to see what it is, but it’s there!

And one fret way to boost self-esteem is to recognize these plusses and be thankful for them.

I’m thankful for my health, and that of my daughters.

I’m grateful that I have such a wide network of supportive friends.

I’m thankful I have sunblock!

See?

There’s so much to be grateful for… and being grateful is an excellent self-esteem booster.
