5 Ways of Boosting your Self – Confidence during Menopause

Updated: Sep 22, 2021

When in Menopause, low self-esteem and the lack of confidence comes due to the hormonal changes in the body. However, it is up to us how well we handle these ‘bouts’ of emotional roller coaster rides and prevent them from overriding our confidence. Confidence in yourself also means trusting yourself to be able to handle any situation that comes your way. Strangely, no matter how much you are prepared, menopause can unexpectedly suck it all right out of you!

However, being a strong woman of strong will, I don’t think it’s ever a choice to let yourself feel unworthy or unloved. No matter what it is, we deal with it with our head held high, and here are a few tips of mine that will not only lift your spirits but in my experience also give you a sense of confidence, especially in yourself!

Make a list

No, not a bucket list! Not a wish list either. This time make a list of your accomplishments and all the situations and difficult times you have overcome. Keep adding to this list as you accomplish new goals and overcome new ordeals. This list is not only a way of affirming your accomplishment but seeing the list grow is very empowering as well.

Surround yourself with people who support you

If you feel that someone is highly critical and is affecting you in your life and starts affecting your perception of yourself, it’s always best to reduce your interaction with them. Surrounding yourself with people who support you and encourage you, will pick your self-confidence right up!

Love Yourself!

Loving yourself is probably the first step towards self-acceptance. If you don’t have self-acceptance, then that means that you are rejecting parts of yourself, possibly hating yourself. It will be impossible to believe when rejection and hatred are present. So, believe and love yourself!

Be Grateful by changing your focus

Here is a small trick, every time you feel that there is a negative thought about to pop in your head, just immediately think of something positive that you are grateful for even if they are for obvious things like having amazing kids, or having a roof over your head, or even food on your plate. Learn to consciously change your focus and be grateful and positive.

Nothing should compare to you

I strongly believe the moment we compare our status, our way of life, our physical appearance, or our job to anyone else, we partly fail ourselves in accepting who we are. Make it a rule not to ever compare, be your own person, the best version of yourself, and know that it's special because it's unique, and that persona will create positivity around you.

Some days are tougher than others, know for a fact that no matter what day it is, cease it! Make it yours, and menopause will just follow right behind it.

Have an amazing week!
