This February, Take Time to Focus on How You Value Yourself
Self-esteem refers to our overall sense of value as individuals. It’s how we feel about ourselves based on our self-confidence, self-identity, and feelings of competence.
High self-esteem means you’re more likely to do meaningful things that make you feel more valuable to yourself and the world around you. Low self-esteem, on the other hand, means you are less likely to pursue meaningful activities, thus preventing you from reaching your true potential in life.
Sadly, not everyone possesses high self-esteem. There can be multiple reasons why an individual has poorer self-esteem compared to others, which include their childhood experiences, environment, and life circumstances.
That’s why we observe International Boost Self-Esteem Month in February of each year. It’s an event dedicated to improving self-esteem among people throughout the world. This is particularly important this year after a series of lockdowns implemented to stop the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has forced a lot of people to spend more time alone with themselves than usual.
In light of this, Veteran Car Donations shares five effective ways of enhancing your self-esteem.
- Stop talking negatively.
Talking negatively to yourself or focusing on your failures worsens your sense of value. It’s okay to think about your flaws or mistakes, but you should never dwell on them for too long.
- Don’t compare yourself to others.
Don’t let the achievements of other people take away from your own. When we compare ourselves to others, we often emphasize what we lack instead of what we’ve already achieved.
- Start exercising.
Exercising triggers your body to release endorphins. These chemicals make you feel positive and energized, which can greatly boost your self-esteem. You don’t need to work out like an athlete to benefit from this either. Something as simple as a walk around your neighborhood will be enough.
- Reflect on the positive things in your life.
Take time to reflect on everything positive in your life. By constantly focusing on what’s positive instead of the negative, your positive experiences will eventually become a part of your internal narrative and help influence your level of self-esteem.
- Surround yourself with people who make you feel good.
Spend time with people who appreciate and care about you. Being around people who make you feel happy and positive helps improve the way you feel about yourself, boosting your sense of self-worth.
Help Boost Self-Esteem of Our Struggling Veterans
This International Boost Self-Esteem Month of February, spare a thought for former members of our military who are down in the dumps and experiencing low self-esteem as a result. They include the veterans in your area who are suffering from homelessness, chronic unemployment, disabilities, and illnesses, including mental health issues.
You can extend them a helping hand by simply donating any vehicle you no longer need to Veteran Car Donations. We will use your donation to uplift the lives of the disadvantaged and neglected veterans in your area.
Our team will have your vehicle auctioned off, with the proceeds distributed to reputable veteran nonprofit organizations that are in partnership with us. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits use the money to provide deserving veterans and their families with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.
You, too, will benefit from your charitable contribution. You’ll get to enjoy our free towing service and our quick and convenient donation process where you don’t have to do any paperwork. On top of that, your gift will entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.
Aside from the material rewards in store for you as our donor, you’ll also be privileged to enjoy a most satisfying donating experience, knowing that your act of charity will help transform the lives of our nation’s heroes.
We accept almost all types of vehicles, regardless of their age or condition. You don’t need to have your car fixed if it has dents or scratches. We’ll take it as it is.
You can also make your donation wherever you are in the country since our vehicle donation program covers the entire United States.
