What Makes Women Confident?

You’re envious of your friend because she can walk into any room and suddenly, all eyes are on her. She can attract people’s attention with her body language, the way she converses, and her overall confidence.

But what is it that makes her confident? How can you develop these qualities in yourself? Is there life after the imposter syndrome?

Here are a couple of things you should do:

Try New Things

Try doing something new. Take up a new hobby or go on an adventure, or a weekend getaway. Doing something new, even if it’s a very small thing, like taking a new route to work, will help boost your confidence and help you realize you have what it takes to achieve greatness.

Once you try out different things, not only will you feel a sense of greatness, you’ll be happier too!

Try Yoga

One of the best things about yoga is that it’s not limited to exercising. Originally, yoga was supposed to help detoxify the soul. I’ve found that helps change your mindset and eliminate negative energy from the mind and body.

It also helps reduce stress and anxiety. Moreover, it’s great for fixing your posture. In a nutshell, it has a significant amount of health benefits.

Generate, don’t React

Learn to generate what you want, instead of reacting to what’s put in front of you. Put yourself in charge and remember you’re doing the picking, not the other way around. Yoga gives you the mental equanimity to see perspective, which will help you to get organized, put yourself in the driver’s seat, and start doing the things you love.

Pursue your dreams; make a plan for your goals. Even the smallest step counts. Take a short break from everything if you can afford to. Unplug yourself and focus on your mental wellbeing.

Spend Time with Other Confident Women

Empowered women empower other women. Spend time with confident women who inspire and motivate you. Be with women who make you feel positive, happy, and good about yourself.

Try to make more friends so that you’re surrounded by women who bring positive energy in your life.

If you want to learn more about yoga or want to read a novel about it, we recommend Finding Warrior Pose by Priya Doty.

Set in India, Finding Warrior Pose is about a 30-something woman named Jaya Gupta, who is being pressured into getting married by her parents. She soon learns of an old ‘ashram’ that was stolen from her family years earlier.

Determined to learn more, Jaya makes a bold decision to set off on a six-month trip to the ashram to learn yoga, unaware of the dangers that are lying ahead. The book is available on Amazon and Kindle.
