Today's article is all about self-esteem. Let's get into it, shall we?

#TheSmileProject -- How To Deal With Low Self-Esteem

I'm sure we've all been in a position where we don't think highly of ourselves. Life and conflicts get in the way of how we perceive ourselves. Here are some ways to rid of the negativity and to think better of yourself.

1. Surround Yourself With Quotes

It's no shock that words hold power. They build us up and sadly tear us down. But our goal is to use them in a positive way. Find some uplifting quotes and put them on your walls, notebooks, phone, anywhere you can easily see them.

2. Listen to Music

Find music that you can easily jam out to. Before you know it, you'll be dancing without a care in the world. And that's the best kind of dancing. Seriously.

Does anyone else get chills when they listen to good music, or is that just me?

3. Keep A Journal

Writing is one of the best things you can do. The words are at your disposal. If you have no one to talk to, then write it out. It honestly helps.

4. Laugh. A Lot.

They don't say laughter is the best medicine for nothing. Make sure you're happy from time to time. You'll feel ten times better. Plus, your positivity will be contagious and it will quickly cause a domino effect. That just makes the feeling better.

That's all I have for you guys. Let me know if you were able to take anything from this. I love to hear your thoughts.

Like always, I hope you have an amazing rest of your day and weekend. Remember to keep smiling. You never know who will need it.

XO,
Kaylee
