In life, we all need to find ways to centre ourselves on a daily basis, and to enhance our overall sense of confidence and well-being, in order to fully thrive.

Life is an amazing thing, full of rich and beautiful opportunities and connections, and priceless moments – and the world is a rich and fascinating place. But if you are constantly exhausted and stuck in a negative mindset, it is likely that you will miss out on a lot of the blessings and beauty around you.

Here are a handful of daily lifestyle practices to help you feel centred and confident, so that you have the best chance of thriving and making the most of your everyday life.

Have a quick daily beauty routine that can help you to have a bit of confidence in your appearance, even when you’re short on time

We all know that it’s not good to judge a book by its cover, and that everyone has a lot more to them than their surface appearances.

At the same time, however, when you are happy with how you look, and how you present yourself, you will inevitably feel more confident and – for better or for worse – other people are likely to pick up on that and treat you better accordingly.

One good practice to get into is to establish a quick daily beauty routine that can help you to feel good about yourself and your appearance, even when you aren’t leaving the house, or don’t have a lot of time for a more intensive session.

Of course, different treatments and approaches exist for more tricky beauty situations, including things like tips to stop hair loss. On an everyday basis, however, simply moisturising, exfoliating, and adding in a couple of other sustainable practices, can make a big difference.

Spend some time in a green space, without checking your phone

There’s a pretty well-developed social psychology theory today, that argues that excessive time spent online – and especially on social media – leads to constant self scrutinising, and has negative implications for our sense of well-being and our ability to feel calm and balanced.

Increasingly, there is a movement around the world that emphasises the importance of disconnecting on a regular basis, and spending time away from your smartphone or computer.

In Japan, the trend of “Forest Bathing” is very popular these days – and entails taking regular visits to the woods in order to help relieve stress and reconnect with nature.

If you can spend a bit of time in a green space, without checking your phone, each day – or at least once or twice a week – you will almost certainly find that you’re able to enjoy a much richer sense of calm and positivity as a result.

Start and finish each day with a quick mental reflection and gratitude session

When we are totally caught up in our own preoccupations and the hustle and bustle of our everyday routines and obligations, it can be all too easy to overlook a lot of the great moments, experiences, and blessings that we should feel thankful for and be appreciative of each day.

In order to prevent yourself from taking things for granted, and to, instead, experience greater positivity and gratitude for the good things in your life, it can be a great idea to make practice of starting and ending each day with a quick mental reflection and gratitude session.

In the morning, you can sit on the edge of your bed for a moment and visualise what you want to do in the day, before spending a while thinking about what you are thankful for.

In the evening, you can review your day and feel some gratitude for the positive things that happened, or for things that have helped you to endure a difficult situation.

Read, watch, or listen to uplifting stories

As human beings, narratives and stories have a lot to do with how we view the world, how we feel about things, and what possibilities we are able to envision for ourselves.

To boost your confidence and your sense of being centred and positive, read, watch, or listen to uplifting stories as often as you can – ideally daily.

By experiencing stories of people triumphing against the odds, acting with grace and determinism, and enjoying life, there’s a good chance that your own thoughts and perspectives will naturally be elevated and made more upbeat.
