  1. Self-esteem is a confidence and assurance in one’s ability. Just getting out and being able to move one’s own body from point A to point B is, at a very basic level, an action. Being able to do something does enhance self-esteem.

  2. Deciding to do something and then following through successfully to a done boosts self-esteem. With this you can see that every time you plan a run and follow through, you will naturally feel a sense of accomplishment.

  3. Even when your day goes wrong, demands run high, your jog lets you escape the noise and confusion and recharge. This feeling that you have recharged is more from a change of attitude on your part than your body’s need for physical exercise. You are after all burning energy when jogging, so feeling energized comes from you.

  4. Jogging makes you a participant in the game we call life. It is success building up one after another that provides that confidence in our-selves. Your view of yourself just can’t do otherwise that improve.

  5. Joggers have a spark for life. They show this in their walk, in their work and you can see it in their face. They just seem to be more there.

  6. Any goal you have set for yourself and fallen away from seems possible after a run. In fact, upon finishing your jog is a perfect time to relook at those goals and workout how you can attain them. This is when your mental acuity is sharpest.

  7. No one can give you self-confidence or self-esteem. Just like no one can jog for you. It comes from within you. It’s always there, it is yours. You tap into it by working on what you can do. When you do this, you just keep finding more things you can do.

Daily Self Esteem Training

From novice jogger, just learning how to run to someone training for a marathon, self-esteem training happens every day. When you have confidence in what you can do, you feel secure, proud and sure of your abilities. That is self esteem. And that is what you will see demonstrated by the joggers or runners you meet. It is that special something you may have wished you had more.

It isn't something hard to obtain. It does, however, take action on your part because self-esteem is very closely tied to doing. Find what you are willing to do and then do it. If that is jogging, well then... Start!
