The good news is you can also build your confidence with fun and easy daily action steps. These 10 fun and easy action steps will build your confidence – no therapy session required!

Music is a great mood booster! Make a specific playlist just for confidence boosting and pack that playlist full of tunes that lift your mood and get your booty shaking.
