How confident do you feel on a daily basis?


Tips to Boost Male Confidence


Confidence in men can often be overlooked, as low confidence is generally associated primarily with women. However, this isn’t true; men can also suffer from low confidence, which can impact their quality of life.


Change Your Mindset


Low self-esteem and confidence are often at the heart of a negative, critical way of thinking about yourself. You might not deem yourself worthy of being confident or have physical features you don’t associate with a confident man. Whatever it is, you need to change your thinking and get into the habit of only thinking good things and removing negative thoughts from your head. Every time one does creep in, you need to change it to a positive one and focus on the good, not what you perceive as bad or wrong.


Check Testosterone Levels


Low testosterone levels in men can cause a range of different issues, and one such issue is low mood and confidence. Along with erectile dysfunction, loss of hair, memory, and poor concentration, it can cause you to lose your confidence and not feel quite like yourself. However, you can change this by looking into treatments, such as finding treatments with Male Excel to help boost testosterone levels and get back to feeling more like yourself.


Build Social Connections


Isolating yourself can only work towards increasing how low you feel and taking away that tiny bit of self-esteem and confidence you have. Getting out and making social connections can allow you to meet people who can help you feel good about yourself and enjoy life. From volunteering to making online social connections, if you prefer, joining a local sports team or hobby club, it doesn’t matter. What matters is you do it and connect with others.




Exercise is a natural mental health booster, and the endorphins you get from a good workout can help you get that dopamine boost that temporarily boosts your confidence. Over time, this can increase as you exercise regularly, meaning you’re getting fitter and gaining a bit more confidence with every workout you do.

Stop Drinking


If you’re turning to alcohol to help you feel confident in a social setting, this can cause you to feel worse once the short-lived effects wear off. Alcohol is a depressant and might make you feel more confident when you are getting drunk, but over time; it can wreak havoc on your mental health and cause you to experience massive highs and lows where your confidence is concerned. Instead of relying on alcohol, avoid it or cut down and start getting yourself back on an even keel.

Have Therapy


The stigma around therapy shouldn’t exist. If you are struggling with anything mentally or anything impacting your mental health, talking to a therapist can be an eye-opening experience. It can allow you to face your demons head-on. While it’s not a quick fix, it will enable you to address what is going on in your head. So, if there are any reasons why you don’t feel confident stemming from past experiences or traumas, talk to a therapist and get the help, support, and perspective you need.
