MyMondayTip: Take a Break And Stop Worrying About Your Self-Esteem

Overcoming low self-esteem is not an overnight change. And if your low self-esteem is especially burdensome, understandably you are eager to overcome it. But though impatience can motivate you to practice and to do exercises, being overeager can lead you further away from your goal. The more you pay attention to the lack of self-esteem, the more it will dominate your life.


Therefore it is advisable to take a break from working on your self-esteem, from time to time. You may even discover that your self-esteem is better than you think. Now your real, true self can shimmer through and you are able to experience your natural self-esteem. At least you can use your break to take stock and re-organize your practice. Then, after one or two weeks, have a fresh start and practice with new vigor.

    Is there an audio CD in the works for Natural Self Esteem?

    Not in the foreseeable future, I'm sorry.

    How many of us are more generous with our compliments to other than we are to ourselves? How many mothers put their family’s needs first, to the extent that they let themselves go, or forget who they are as individuals? The answer: unfortunately, a lot. It’s difficult to juggle numerous obligations–between taking care of work, the home, the man, the children, there’s seemingly little time to nurture ourselves.

    Think for a moment—when a woman is happy and fulfilled (as a function of taking care of herself!), is she more or less able to give to her family? Making time to take care of you will enhance your capability to take care of your loved ones and your many responsibilities. Consider the emergency plan on an airplane. Taking care of yourself is like putting on your oxygen mask first, and then taking care of your children and those around you.

    So, make time for yourself, even if it’s just a few minutes on extra busy days. Do something you enjoy that rejuvenates you, that helps you feel good about yourself, or energizes you. Take a few minutes to enjoy a favorite activity (e.g., a hobby, read a good book), take care of your body (e.g., exercise, take a bath, eat something healthy and delicious), or whatever you need to rejuvenate. Take a moment to consider everything positive about you and express gratitude for wonderful things in your life. Lastly, just notice, observe the difference in how you feel when you do and when you don’t make time for yourself. You’ll be surprised how much better you feel when you do! Just a little love for yourself will make a big difference!
