    Think positively. When it comes down to it, reality is perception. If you feel confident, you are. If life is falling apart around you but you don't notice, it's not really falling apart, now is it? So get on thinking those happier thoughts! You're not deluding yourself one way or another -- don't worry that you're being silly for thinking positively -- you're just taking control.
    When you catch yourself thinking, "God, I'm so fat," STOP. Go back. Reframe. Say it again, only this time think, "I'm unhappy with my weight. What am I doing about it?" It doesn't have to be all sunshine and rainbo

    Be grateful. Alright, so you've read the How to Think Positively article, too, and you're still at a loss? Then just start with being grateful. The more things you realize you have going for you the more you can sit back and go, "Huh. I guess life is pretty darn okay." The only sad part is how easily we forget what we have!
    Seriously. You probably have working body parts, clothes on your back, talents (what are they?), people who love you, and a future, just for starters. That's the stuff most people have (or at least most people on wikiHow) -- what else do you have that's unique

    Smiling reduces stress, lowers your blood pressure, and ups your immune system. Kinda like oatmeal, only calorie free and available everywhere.

    Switch up your environment. Think about the person you are at home, the person you are at school, the person you are at work, the person you are at your favorite cafe, etc. Probably not the same person, huh? Odds are that there's an environment or two where you feel more comfortable and more confident. So if you're in a place where you don't feel confident, get up and move!
    Okay, so you can't get up in the middle of dinner and mince your way over to McDonald's unfortunately. But the next time you find yourself feeling not-so-great, think about where you are. Knowing it might be a

  • 5. Use Visualization and deep breathing. This is more of an in-the-moment tip. When you're gearing up to talk to that cute boy or to give that speech, that's when you'll need to use these little tricks.
    Visualize yourself doing awesome and it all going swimmingly. When you expect success, you might just get it. But when you expect to fail, you will.
    Take a deep breath. When we breathe too quickly, our heart rates go up and our brains start thinking "fight or flight." You're just making yourself more nervous. Since you won't be attacking any wooly mammoths anytime soon, there's really no use fo

  • 6. Self talk. Look yourself in the mirror and persuade yourself that you are you and that you ARE brilliant. Convince yourself that there is nothing for you to hide from except yourself. Make fierce and confident poses in the mirror, this will make you think positive!
