Improve your self-esteem with an active lifestyle

You get up, you look at yourself in the mirror and you ask yourself the same questions every day. You go out and you feel like nobody looks at you. You used to receive a lot of compliments before, what happened? What changed? The only problem is your low self-esteem. This can happen to anybody. If you want to improve your self-esteem, an active life will help you.

Looking good not only depends on nice clothes and accessories or a good haircut and make-up, it also depends on having a healthy body.

When you live with low self-esteem you have a negative perception of your body and you tend to look ugly; if you are overweight the negativity is bigger. Therefore, no medicine will be more effective than sports, because exercise produces endorphins, and endorphins produce happiness.

Endorphins are neurotransmitter hormones and they produce happiness from the brain. They increase exponentially with intense physical exercise. They are responsible for reducing pain and providing a positive mood and wellness. With physical activity our level of endorphins increases and our body chemistry predisposes us to see life in a much more positive way.

It is known that low self-esteem leads to problems such as anxiety, depression, stress, addictions, and if the person does not realize about this predisposition soon enough, it can cause more serious problems, but how to know when it is necessary to get active to avoid this?

Pay attention to these symptoms: You are insecure, you do not express your likes or opinions for fear of being rejected or for thinking that your opinions do not have the same value as the opinions of others, you do not feel worthy of the good things of life, you do not strive to get what you want, because you think you will not achieve it in advance, you do not relate to others as you would like, you need the approval of others all the time, you let them impose you things, you see other people as superior to you, you do not make decisions, you always think about your weaknesses, you do not feel attractive, you envy other people, you are almost never happy with what you do and you never show a happy attitude.
