  1. 1. When you hear negative comments in your head, mentally tell yourself to STOP. The negative voice inside you will soon get quieter! Here are some quick ideas:  Write a list of all the things you like about yourself, what your strengths are, remind yourself of the things you do well, compliments others have paid you, of small goals you have achieved.  Put post it notes around your home with positive sayings like ‘I am doing OK’, ‘I am doing my best & that is good enough’.  Remember that your body is yours! , no matter what shape or size it is.  Don’t compare yourself to other people.  Don’t put yourself down.  Get into the habit of thinking and saying positive things about you to yourself.  Accept compliments.  Know your positive qualities & remember things you are good at.  Be helpful & considerate to others.  Spend time with encouragers, not discouragers (especially family &friends): There may be people who although are close to you may encourage the negative beliefs and opinions that you have about yourself. It is important to identify these people and take action to prevent them from doing this, perhaps by becoming more assertive. Try to associate with people who will not put you down and reinforce these negatives.  Work: Work can provide you with a sense of identity, friendships, routine & of course a salary!
