Anyone can feel confident on a good day, but to maintain a positive self-image on a bad day takes practice. Much like strengthening a muscle, keeping your confidence strong requires constant exercise. These five confidence-boosting routines can provide the perfect reinforcement.

Practice self-care. For a healthier dose of confidence, maintain a healthier body inside and out. You know the drill…diet, exercise and a good night’s rest, but sometimes a reminder brings new focus. Exercise is an instant confidence booster and releases feel-good endorphins important to your moods. Watch what you eat by keeping a food diary for a week. Adjust your healthy meal plan where you see gaps or slip-ups. Get plenty of sleep and take in the clean, fresh air of the outdoors whenever you can. All of these healthy lifestyle tips can provide you with a greater sense of accomplishment and a heightened feeling of self-worth.

Try something outside your comfort zone. As you can and on a regular basis, try things you never thought you would. It can be as simple as eating a new food you can’t pronounce or cooking an entirely different cultural meal for dinner guests. Stretch yourself by learning something new, like a foreign language, sign language or salsa dancing. By pushing yourself into unfamiliar territory you’ll build up your inner confidence.

Dress for success. When you’re concerned about bladder leakage, current trends in clothing go a long way to minimize any hint of what’s underneath. Today’s more casual, relaxed fits and styles not only look great, but offer added discretion. Also important--choosing the right protection for your body and your lifestyle.

Wear the right absorbent product. Disposable absorbent products continue to make great strides in helping women maintain the utmost discretion. Depend® products are thinner than ever, yet designed to hold more liquid and neutralize odor. And they’re offered in a greater variety of sizes and shapes to make it easier to find your perfect fit. Wearing the right product can make all the difference in how confident you feel.

Keep a list and give yourself credit. Jot down all your positive traits and, voila!—you’ve got a ready pick-me-up whenever you falter. Try recording your daily accomplishments no matter how small and reward yourself for a job well done. It all adds up to making you feel more self-assured.

We all have good days and bad days. Do things that make you feel good about yourself on a regular basis and watch your self-confidence soar no matter what kind of a day it turns out to be!
