This week I had the pleasure of attending a confidence seminar and workshop held by the Bath Coaching Cafe. Like most people I can feel ultra confident at some points and then not so confident on an off day. So as far as I'm concerned there is always something new to learn when it comes to loving the self.
The gorgeous Liz (above) led the group and ended by giving us a 21 day confidence plan which will make a difference when followed with commitment. I thought I'd share it with you as I plan to do this for the next 21 days and would love for you to join me on this challenge!
In isolation, the components of the 21 day plan are not new news to me - Healing without Freud or Prozac is a brilliant book for detail on the benefits of breathing exercises and cardio, even if it's just a jog at the pace of a snail. There's also a lot covered on SAD lamps and sunrise imitation alarm clocks. Happier details the benefits of gratitude, kind acts and reflection, not to mention all kinds of interesting stuff on what happiness means.
Nevertheless, it's often about the packaging. When someone presents a task with boundaries (21 days), a step by step guide so you don't have to select and create your own programme and, most importantly, a goal (which in this case is to feel more confident after the process), it's much easier to just do it.
The 21 day plan:
1) Write down 3 things you're grateful for each day
2) Journal about 1 positive experience each day
3) Exercise every single day (it doesn't have to be hardcore)
4) 15 minutes of meditation daily (you don't have to be a seasoned yogi - just do your best)
5) Do one act of random kindness each day
I shall report back in 21 days - who's up for the 21 day challenge?
