Well hello there folks, it’s the weekend and I’m about to dive head on into some work. But I’ve been chipping away at this list for a while and I finally finished it. Mostly because I’ve been easily distracted lately, but also, 25 things is A LOT. So good luck to you, have some fun, enjoy yourself and if you do something that you take a picture of, make sure you let me know! Tag me or hashtag #ConfidentYou. Let’s do this thing!
- Sit up straight and walk tall, shoulders back, it’s all about posture people.
- Tidy up the area around you, you can’t feel good if life’s a mess, get to it.
- Laugh at something funny, big, with your mouth open.
- Do something nice and unexpected for someone else.
- Do something nice and unexpected for yourself too.
- Breathe deeply, it’ll make you more calm and calm equals confident. sort of.
- If asked to give your opinion today, think about it genuinely and give it.
- Eat well by choosing whole foods, good choices just make you feel good.
- Give someone a hug. Preferably someone you know but not necessarily
- Decide on one thing you’d like to achieve this year and make a plan to achieve it.
- Sing loudly in the car because it’s fun. Head banging at lights helps too.
- Attempt something you’ve never done before with no expectation of doing it well.
- Drink more water, apparently not drinking enough can make you cranky. Good to know.

- Compliment a stranger, on their hair, their kids, their outfit. Whatever!
