Tools and Techniques for #Happiness & Emotional Health: Ten Behaviors That Build Intrinsic #Self Esteem:

Experience gained from my 30+ years in practice as a cognitive-behavioral psychologist shows that with the right tools people readily learn to elevate and maintain emotional well-being and happiness. 

At the Think Right Feel Right Blogoscope you will find the behavioral tools and techniques that help to ward off anxiety, depression and addiction. You will learn about ways to defeat troubling emotions such as anger, worry and sadness. You will also find practical strategies for increasing self-esteem, positivity and for being a happier you.

Ten Behaviors That Build Intrinsic Self Esteem:  Intrinsic self-esteem is a vital part of the foundation for mental health and happiness. If this foundation is not strong, we will struggle.  Self-esteem is something we learn, so we all need to make sure we learn it well. 

What do we need to know?  In my world and hopefully in your world too, self-esteem is best viewed as a verb, not a noun.  Self-esteem is something we need to do. When we do it, we have it and we feel its benefits.  You will have more intrinsic self-esteem if you:

1) Listen to yourself with caring and compassion.

2) Treat yourself with kindness

3) Engage yourself with respect

4) Accept you for who you are

5) Show loyalty to you

6) Uphold your word and your trust with you

7) Give yourself help and support

8) Cultivate and attend to your interests

9) Bring fun and humor into your daily routine

10) Love and value yourself consistently.

By including these behaviors in your daily routine, you will deepen self-esteem and emotional well-being.  For more on this topic, please follow along. 

You will also find lots of tools and techniques for optimizing emotional health and happiness in my new self-help guide, Think Right, Feel Right.
