ü 1. Appreciate the little things in life:
When you feel angry, or out of luck, just think about all the blessings you have. Try to find the silver lining and focus on that. You’ll realize that you are actually very lucky.
ü 2. Don’t compare yourself to others:
If you live your life comparing yourself to others, you will always be unhappy. There’s always going to be someone better than you at something. But you forget, there’s no one who can ever be YOU. That’s an achievement in its self. Don’t let anyone let you think otherwise.
ü 3. Educate yourself daily:
Try to read books about anything and everything. You might even find your passion, pick up a new skill or even learn a new language! This will help in building your confidence every day.
ü 4. No need to always react:
Acknowledge that you don’t always have to react to certain situations; you don’t need to always be part of the drama. Just walk away.
ü 5. Act it:
If you act sad then you will be. It’s as simple as that. Try to act happy and confident and you will actually feel happy and confident! Try it!
ü 6. Live in the moment:
Don’t think about the past or the future more than necessary. This is one the biggest traps to attract negative thoughts and you don’t want that. Enjoy the moment right now, but…
ü 7. …Set goals:
If you don’t know where you’re going, it can also be dangerous. Set achievable dream goals and work your way to them. It’s not a race and you should go at your own pace.
ü 8. Associate with positive people:
We all know 2 types of people: positive, upbeat, optimistic or negative, pessimistic and negative. Hanging with the second gang will always leave you feeling depressed. Select the first group, which make you feel positive about life and yourself. They will feed your soul.
ü 9. Keep a healthy diet:
It’s amazing what healthy food can do for you. Just knowing that your body is getting the nutrients and vitamins that it needs will put you in a better mood and make you feel tons lighter.
Last but not least…
ü 10. Dress up!

Every day, pick an outfit that you feel expresses you and let that positive energy radiate through you. We at New Hijab believe that what a girl wears affects her mood, so we try to provide clothes for all styles…
