Self-confidence is so important to maintaining good mental health.

In this article, you'll discover 7 simple but effective techniques to boost your confidence levels and heighten self esteem.

Each week, work out exactly what you want to accomplish and set goals.

This will bring structure to your week and you'll have clarity and purpose about what your life is about. Include work, family, social and personal aspects and each time you achieve a goal, give yourself a little reward. The feeling of accomplishment will increase your confidence significantly.

Give yourself a makeover. Knowing that you look good will make you feel good and this will increase confidence.

So change your appearance - hairstyle, clothes you wear, colors you wear.

Perhaps your makeover could also involve a healthier lifestyle so you look even better? Dump the past. Whatever has happened previously has gone forever.

Today you can dump the past and start afresh. You can shape whatever happens from now on and create a new, confident you. Forget the past and begin taking action to build a brighter future. And just because things have been a certain way till now, it doesn't mean they always have to be this way. You can change, you can be confident. It's up to you.

Drop self-deprecation. If you repeatedly put yourself down it will knock confidence right out of you. Criticizing your looks, your body shape, your hair, your abilities and your personality is harmful. If you do this everyday, confidence will be non-existent.

You wouldn't think this is a decent way to treat others so make it totally unacceptable for you to treat yourself this way. Be kind to yourself, respect yourself and never ever beat yourself up. Frequently remind yourself of all of the good things you have done.

If you remind yourself of all the mistakes you've made, your confidence levels will remain grounded. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Reminding yourself of the good things you have done builds self-esteem.
