6 Tips to Raise your Self-Esteem

Raising Your Self-Esteem
By: Diane Lang

What does it mean to have healthy self-esteem? It’s having a good opinion of yourself that is realistic. Being that the most important opinion of yourself comes from yourself, it’s time evaluate: how do you feel about yourself?
Let’s be honest, the only opinion that should matter is your own but the problem is for many us our opinions are negative. We are our own worst critics.
When we have a negative view of ourselves, we can spend our lives looking for ways to justify the negativity and be condemned to a life of self-criticism.
This isn’t a healthy way to live. Instead, there are things we can do to raise our self – esteem.

6 tips to raise your self-esteem:

1. What are you thinking about? Start being conscious of your thoughts. What is that internal voice saying? To start the change process, you need to know what you think about yourself. Ask yourself where do these thoughts come from? How have these thoughts stopped your life? Lowered your self worth? After hearing these thoughts and repeating them to ourselves, they become auto pilot thoughts. We have them without even recognizing them anymore. These thoughts are learned. That’s the good news. If it’s learned, you can unlearn them.

*Start by thinking about: what kind of thoughts about yourself do you want to have? Make a phrase of what you want to feel and start repeating it daily. This will be adding positive affirmations into your routine.

2. The stick figure exercise.
Draw a stick figure of yourself or cut and paste a picture of you. On one side of the figure write your accomplishments. On the other side write down all your roles/descriptions. On the bottom write down your goals/dreams
You can look at the stick figure every time your feeling down and see how much you have accomplished, how much you do everyday and where your going. Add to it as things come up.
*You can also write a list of all the things you like about yourself and review it every morning.

3. Throw in some positive psychology exercises;
Gratitude – every night before bed, ask yourself: what are 2-3 things I’m grateful for that happen today?
2-3 things you did well today – every night after the gratitude exercise, ask yourself: what are 2-3 things I did well today?

4. The comparison game
Are you comparing yourself to others? The only person you should compare yourself to is who you were yesterday. If you notice comparing yourself to others, what’s triggering it? Is it toxic friendships/family members? If so, boundaries/limitations or a break up is in order.
Is it social media? Limiting your social media intake is very important.

5.Remind yourself of your strengths by taking a personality test. Everyone has different strengths. Knowing yours and using them can up our levels of happiness and self esteem.

6. Pay it forward -raises our self esteem and takes our mind off of ourselves while cultivating happiness. Doing for others gives us a sense of accomplishment and pride. These positive emotions cultivate happiness and give us a sense of value and meaning into our lives.

*Remember, self-care-because you are worth it!

You don’t like me…. Why do I care?

Most of us struggle with looking for acceptance and approval from outside of ourselves.
We are so fearful of people not liking us.
Who would you be without fear?
Our fear can become part of our identity.
You identify with it so much it becomes part of you
It’s time to evaluate what fears your holding on to? Why you have them? What needs are they fulfilling?
Even fear, anger, etc. can fulfill a need. Even if it’s to justify our feelings of being unworthy and not enough.
There is a reason for it. Explore what it is.
Awareness is a key factor to letting go of and moving forward.
What would life look like without fear holding you back?
It would mean you have to take chances and step outside your comfort zone.
It would mean there would be no way to justify your inner voice that is based on such old, limiting, negative beliefs.
Actually, you would have to eliminate those fears, then what?
You have grown so custom to having these fears, they feel like a warm blanket.
To take off the blanket would feel awkward and confusing,
It would feel vulnerable.
You would have to figure out who you were without fear being part of your identity.
You would have to take responsibility for your actions and make changes.
It would be a whole new world, but… doesn’t that sound like a world you want to live in?

September Commitment – Morning Routine for Success

September Commitment – Morning Routine for Success
By: Diane Lang

September for me is a brand new start just like New Years is for others.
It feels like a brand new start with school back in session for my daughter and for me as an educator. It just feels right to take September to re-evaluate my life and see what needs fixing.
I realized my morning routine has gotten a little old and outdated. It’s time for a refresh.

My new routine consists of:
When I first wake up: I stay in bed and do a 7-12 minute guided visualization where I continue to visualize my goals. Sometimes the goals for the day, other times it’s long term goals I’m working on. It doesn’t matter if you visualize a short or long term goal but just pick one so you don’t get overwhelmed. If 7-12 minutes is too long, then do 3-5 minutes. Just do it.
My shower is the next on my routine and I make it a mindful experience. I say my gratitude in the shower by asking myself- what are 2-3 things I’m grateful for that happened yesterday.
Right after my gratitude, I say to 2-3 things I did well yesterday.
When I’m finished re-training my brain with gratitude and what I did well, I say my thanks to god/universe/source- whatever you choose and to anyone in my world who has been helpful. I wrap it up with asking for guidance for myself and those in need.
After my shower while eating breakfast, I repeat my positive affirmations. My affirmations are beliefs in my life I’m choosing to work on changing because they are not serving me or even making me feel stuck.
My affirmations currently:
I’m loved
I’m abundant.
It used to be I’m whole and healthy but I feel whole and healthy now so I moved on to the new affirmations. I will say them at breakfast and then all day when needed and right before bed. I will repeat the affirmations everyday until I believe them, then it’s time for new affirmations.
I also exercise every morning. Sometimes it’s just a 15 minute walk, other times it’s an hour. Sometimes it’s strength training, I mix it up but every morning I get some exercise.

I know this might seem a lot, but that is why I do gratitude, what I did well and affirmations during my daily shower and breakfast. It doesn’t change my schedule at all.
Sometimes, my exercise is just parking really far from campus so I get in my walk. Figure out ways to get your morning routine done. It sets you up for success and starts your day in the right frame of mind – positive.
What does your morning routine look like? It might be time to update yours or start one.
Happy September!

Is old school really so bad?

Is old school really so bad?

I like a world with long deep conversations not a one or two line text
I like face to face interaction
I like hands on learning not watching a video
I like being outside in nature not inside with 5000 friends on social media that I don’t know
I like binging on books using my imagination not binging the latest TV show
I don’t want to follow your life thru an app
I want to hear it first hand
I don’t want to record everything I want to live it in the present moment
I don’t want to live in auto pilot, I want to be conscious and mindful of my actions, behaviors, feelings and patterns
I want connection not likes
I want real food not genetically modified
I want an actual customer service rep not a machine
Not everything should be googled…Our brains are the best computer out there don’t let it go to waste.
Call me old school but it feels more real, more authentic and more interesting

Staying away from the negativity – its contagious!

Staying Away From The Negativity:
By: Diane Lang

Times are tough, that’s what we hear from everyone. Going to college puts us in debt, prices are high, politics, natural disasters are all around us. These are just a few of the stories we see daily on our TV, on our computers, social media pages and hear on the radio. How are we to escape all this negativity so we can move forward in our day to day lives? When things are bad in the world, we still need to have some normalcy so we can sleep at night and keep our ourselves happy and healthy. I wish I could get rid of all the stress and negativity in the world, but I can’t. However, here are some tips to help you get through your day on a positive note.

1. Stay away from the negative – there is no reason why you must watch the negativity on the TV, hear it on the radio, read it on your computers 24 hours a day. We can make a conscious choice to limit our negative media time. I have learned that it is better to watch the cartoons and kids shows on Disney with my daughter then all the morning programs. Why? Because the morning shows have one positive story to 10 negative ones. I can’t compete with the negative. I’m not saying to ignore the world events but limiting the amount of negativity you get in one day is a healthier choice.

2. Negativity is not just found on your local news programs. Watch the “Toxic” people in your life. Moods/emotions are contagious. If you surround yourself with negative people, it will rub off on you. It only takes about 10 minutes for a mood to be passed onto others. If your surrounded by negativity it can make your feel drained, fatigued, stressed and anxious.

3. Watch the negative self-talk. Try this experiment for a day (Snap to awareness exercise): Wear a rubber band around your wrist and every time you have a negative thought, action or say something negative to others, snap the rubber band. You might be surprised how red your wrist is by the end of the day. When we are feeling negative, we tend to catastrophize what is going on and one small issue turns into a big issue. We domino affect one problem into many others.
Example: Driving to work on the highway and suddenly you hit traffic and you’re stuck. You get upset but instead of just focusing on the traffic, it turns into a negativity party. You start insulting the traffic, the car you drive, the other drivers, the weather, the place you were going to, etc.
When you do the “Snap to awareness” exercise with the rubber band, you find out how negative you are. This self-awareness can allow you to slow down the negativity.
Watch the negative words like: Maybe, should, could or would. Replace them with power words like: Choose, Choice, I will, etc.

4. Work on what you can control in your life not what you can’t. Just a quick reminder – we can only change ourselves; we can never control others. If we try to change others, we are setting ourselves up for failure because it’s unrealistic. Make a list of everything in your life you can control then ask yourself- what can I do about it now? Set up goals and action plans. Make sure all goals are realistic and achievable. Make sure the time frame you set up for goals is realistic. Take baby steps when making changes.

5. Tough times are real, but they are only temporary. Remember that when things are bad. Instead of saying things like: This will never change, this problem seems impossible, etc. Start saying: This issue/situation is only temporary. You’re not a victim. Go back to #4 and work on what you can control. This brings back the power.

6. Tough times are teachable moments. I always tell clients, don’t live in the past, learn from your past. The tough situation you’re in now will be temporary and then one day will be a teachable moment. Think to yourself what can I learn from this issue? What can I do to not be a victim? I have adult college students tell me I lost my job but I’m using this time to further my education or learn a new skill. There is always a positive side to every negative story. Look for the positive.

7. Consequences – think of the consequences if you remain negative, stressed out and unbalanced. You will feel the affects emotionally, mentally and physically. Here are some the signs to look for:

Change in eating/sleeping habits
Low energy/fatigue
poor concentration, focus and attention
irritable/mood swings
low immune system
muscle aches and pains
migraines, jaw pain
stomach problems
isolation, depression
Burnout – mental, physical and emotional exhaustion

8. If you feel completely overwhelmed, seek professional help. Remember, you’re not alone; APA reported that 80% of Americans feel stressed out due to the economy. Harvard research says 90% of doctor’s visits are stress related.

Becoming Unstuck

When we are stuck, it means we are shifting/transitioning and we need to do the work to move forward.
Clients will ask: “What is the work?”
It’s asking yourself the right questions depending on the situation.
Sometimes the question is “What the hell am I doing?”
It’s the wake up and stop everything question and really think about what you are doing at this moment. For most, we’re doing the same thing over and over again on repeat and it’s getting us nowhere and we need that eye opener.
It’s much easier to just ignore that question or not even ask it, but then happiness and change doesn’t come.
When we ask the question, notice what comes up both emotionally and physically. Be conscious of your feelings, thoughts, sensations etc. They are clues of what’s going on within us.
Go deeper.
What feelings comes up? What or who angers me? What or who is making me sad? Hurt? Lonely? What has taken away my joy?
Are these feelings that have come up in similar situations before? Are you seeing a pattern? Is this pattern keeping you stuck?
If one year from now you are still in the same pattern, what will your life look like?
How will you feel? How will it affect the people close to you?
What do you need to do to break the pattern?
Remember, none of this works without complete honesty.
Another quick reminder; sometimes you need to look in the mirror. You can be your own worst enemy.

Do the soul searching. Do the work no matter how painful, it’s the only way to grow and change.
Think differently by getting off of autopilot and being more conscious. Be mindful of your choices and actions.
Stepping outside your comfort zone is a must during this time. You can’t get some place new by doing the same thing over and over again.
