9 steps to build your self confidence


Self-confidence is a huge topic and a very complex one. If you clicked on the title of this post it may be because you think you are not that confident or because you would like to be more so. Well, the first thing to remember is that you are most definitely not alone. Most people have struggled with self confidence at some point in our lives.

Although I am by no means an expert, I was inspired to write about this today after my daily Headspace. Headspace is a mindfulness app that I think I have talked about before. I started using it last year when I bought a subscription after using the 10 free sessions. After a while you have access to different modules and the one I am currently listening to is focused on self confidence. I'm a person who comes across very confident on the surface, and at my core I am also fairly confident, but it is that middle layer that I have had to work on, and today I wanted to share my thoughts and the things that have helped me along the way. I hope you find it helpful.

Perfect autumn porridge



After six weeks I'm finally going back to work tomorrow. I hadn't had such a long break since I finished university too many years ago, so there is no wonder that I am a bundle of nerves. I am excited and looking forward to seeing everyone and to get stuck in work (I have really missed it!), but at the same time I have that feeling you used to get the night before going back to school after a long summer.

This week will be a test of how well I am, and I want to give myself the best chance to be full of energy, so I've been playing with different breakfasts that will keep releasing energy throughout the morning. As the weather has been getting colder this past week, I thought I would make porridge this morning and make it an autumn one.
