Transcript of SELF ESTEEM. --

Self Esteem. -- Mind, Body & Soul “Why compare yourself with others?
No one in the entire world can do a
better job of being you than you.” “You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy." “Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.” "Trust yourself.
You know more than you think you do.” What Is Self Esteem ?

Self esteem is your opinion of yourself.
High self esteem is a good opinion of yourself and low self esteem is a bad opinion of yourself.

It's how much you value yourself and how important you think you are. It's how you see yourself and how you feel about all of your achievements.

Self esteem isn't bragging about how great you are. It's more like quietly knowing that you're worth a lot. It's not about thinking you're perfect, —because nobody is — but knowing that you're worthy of being loved and accepted.

Self esteem is for the mind, body & soul. If you have high self esteem, you would probably be more motivated, to excersize your mind & body, while you let your inner soul have fun. Self Esteem really effects relationships High Self Esteem is when you:

1. Respect others and yourself.
2. See yourself as lovable and liked.
3. Show confidence.
4. Take care of yourself.
5. Have healthy, loving relationships.
6. Accept yourself for who you are Trust me, if you are smart enough to have high self esteem, life will be a lot more easier Self esteem is related to how we feel about ourselves:
it's not just how we look but how we feel about how we look. And it's not just how successful or smart others say we are, but how confident we feel about our talents and abilities. How you look?

Eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression are the most common mental health problems in girls.
59% of 5–12th grade girls in one survey were dissatisfied with their body shape.
20–40% of girls begin dieting at age 10.
By 15, girls are twice as likely to become depressed than boys.
Among 5–12th graders, 47% said they wanted to lose weight because of magazine pictures.
Health risks accompany girls' drop in self-esteem due to risky eating habits, depression, and unwanted pregnancy.
Girls aged 10 and 12 (tweens) are confronted with "teen" issues such as dating and sex, at increasingly earlier ages. 73% of 8–12–year olds dress like teens and talk like teens. Is it really true that teenage girls + media = low self-esteem?

The issue of media's impact on teenagers has generated a lot of interest in the
last decade. Despite contradictory findings, all researchers agree that teenage
girls as a group are focused on their looks--especially on what they don't like
about themselves! Marketing departments and ad agencies spend millions each year
targeting teenage girls who spend much of their hard-earned dollars (and their
parents' hard-earned dollars!) on looking good. Although the message of "girl
power" is prevalent in today's marketing messages, so is the irrefutable idea
that "sexy" and "thin" are in!

The dieting industry alone generates 40 billion dollars per year in America. If
you believe diets are just for adults, you will be shocked to learn that a
Harvard study (Fat Talk, Harvard University Press) published in 2000 revealed
that 86% of teenage girls are on a diet or believe they should be on one. Diets
are common among both teens and children. According to the National Eating
Disorders Association, 51% of 9 and 10-year-old girls actually feel better about
themselves when on a diet. As a society, our obsession with thin is relatively
new. Most people (especially teens) are shocked to find that sex icon Marilyn
Monroe actually wore a size 14!

But pick up a fashion magazine today and you'll find models who are thinner than
98% of all the girls and women in America. Turn on a television and see 'sexy'
celebrities such as Shania Twain, Britney Spears and Pamela Anderson baring
their flesh. It is these role models who have become the standard of what is in
vogue in the twenty-first century. Like how girls only look at the things they hate most about themselves, while I bet, most of those flaws they see, no one else really notices, and look out more the postive things about you. Don't let what others say bring your self esteem down, they don't know a thing. BE POSITIVE. OPTIMISM Four Ways to Keep High Self Esteem for a Teenage Girl

1. Encourage and Support her Achievements and Passions.
2. Help Her Get in Touch with Reality.
3. Focus on a Healthy Lifestyle
4. Contribute to Others Stay fit to Stay Positive Self Esteem affects everyone around you. You give what you get.
Be positive, & get happiness in the end. Your Behaviour Affects Your Personality

We all know that our personalities affect our behaviour. This is what forces a shy person not to speak much when he meets new people and this is why A confident person finds no problem in expressing himself. As you see, your personality can affect your behaviour but do you know that your behaviour could affect your personality? Breaking the cycle: breaking the self-reinforcing cycle will in turn stop further deterioration of your self image.

Changing your idea about yourself: Your continuous way of acting in an assertive or confident manner will slowly erode your negative beliefs about yourself.

This happens because your subconscious mind starts to receive lots of new feedback that defies your negative beliefs about yourself and so in the end you will end up being more self-confident. Listen to upbeat music more then depressing types, so might change the way you feel, into a more optimistic way, from how music affects the way of your emotions. People with high self esteem..

Usually see other people in a better light, too.
Expect other people to like and accept them.

Perform better in high pressure situations, and do better work when the standards are high.

Feel confident and secure enough to shrug off negative comments from others.

On the other hand, people with low self-esteem..

Frequently dislike others.

Expect that other people will dislike and reject them.

Have trouble performing under pressure, and find it hard to work in demanding environments.

Are more vulnerable to negative comments and reactions from others. People that stay fit, and are more motivated to actually work out, or at least keep fit, usually have more optimistic views in life, and feel a whole lot better too. Sometimes it's easy to like who you are. You feel great when you pass a test, score a winning touchdown or tell a funny joke that everyone laughs at. But how do you feel about yourself when you just said something stupid or fumbled the football? You sometimes feel dumb or left out of the action. You start wishing you were someone else or that you could change how you look. You think you aren't good in school, on the team or part of the cool crowd. This is "negative" or "low self-esteem. Why is self-esteem important?

As a teen, you now have more responsibility to choose between right and wrong. Your parents are no longer constantly by your side. Positive self esteem gives you the courage to be your own person, believe in your own values and make a the right decision when the pressure is on.

Your friends can put a lot of pressure on you. You want to be part of a crowd. The crowd may be the "cool" crowd, the "jock" crowd, the "nerd" crowd. Belonging to a crowd is a part of growing up; it helps you learn to be a friend and learn about the world around you.

It's okay to want to be liked by others -- but not when it means giving in to pressure. Your friends are now making many of their own decisions. And their decisions may or may not be good for you. Is it easy to change your self esteem?

No. It means taking some time to understand who you are - what you like, don't like, feel comfortable with and what goals you have. This takes time and hard work. It's a lifelong process, but it's worth the effort. 7 Ways to Boost Your Self Esteem almost Instantly

1) Think back to when you did something new for the first time.

3) Do something you are good at.
4) Stop thinking negative about yourself.
5) Get seriously relaxed.
6) Remember all the things you have achieved.
7) Remember that you could be wrong!

Once you have tried out a few of these, consider making them a permanent part of your life. For most people, good self esteem is not just a happy accident, it's a result of the way they think and the things they do from day to day. How was the week for you?

With a positive or healthy body image, a woman has a real perception of her size and shape. She also feels comfortable with her body. With a negative body image, a woman has a distorted perception of her shape and size, compares her body to others, and feels shame and anxiety about her body. Being unhappy with your body can affect how you think and feel about yourself as a person. A poor body image can lead to emotional distress, low self-esteem, unhealthy dieting habits, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. Developing a positive body image and a healthy mental attitude is crucial to a woman's happiness and wellness.

When you Look in the Mirror, do you Like What you See? Is your body image positive or negative?
If your answer is negative, you are not alone. Women in the U.S. are under pressure to measure up to a certain social and cultural ideal of beauty, which can lead to poor body image. Women are constantly bombarded with "Barbie Doll-like" images. By presenting an ideal that is so difficult to achieve and maintain, the cosmetic and diet product industries are assured of growth and profits. It's no accident that youth is increasingly promoted, along with thinness, as an essential criterion of beauty. The message we're hearing is either "all women need to lose weight" or that the natural aging process is a "disastrous" fate.

hape a healthy balance. The media lies!
When you walk down the sidewalk, are you thinking about how you appear about how big your butt looks instead of thinking about the beauty or stimuli around you? Self-objectification can lead to feeling self-conscious and humiliated, and it can make us believe that our bodies exist only for the pleasure of others.
The most powerful arm of the mass media, is all around us, many of us believe we are immune from its effects. This mistaken belief is one of the reasons it is so effective. The average American sees three thousand ads per day.
