The Top Ten Little Things That Can Boost Your Confidence

From a new pair of shoes to your first cup of coffee, it's the little things.

A new survey found the average person experiences two boosts in confidence a day.  (They found we’re at our most confident around 12:30 in the afternoon.)  Here are the top 10 little things that can give us a confidence boost:


1.  A new haircut.  64% of people said it makes them feel more confident.


2.  Wearing a new outfit, 56%.


3.  Doing a good deed, 53%.


4.  Hearing one of your favourite songs, 44%.  (Hopefully Mix 106.5 can help with that one 🙂 )


5.  Exercising, 38%.


6.  Shopping, 36%.


7.  Talking to a good friend, 35%.


8.  Getting a compliment from your boss, 35%.


9.  Knowing you smell good, 34%.


10.  Talking to a family member, 33%.



The top 20 also includes:

  • wearing new shoes
  • your first cup of coffee
  • spending time on a hobby
  • getting a massage
  • getting a mani-pedi


And 16% of us say that just catching our own reflection in a mirror gives them a confidence boost, according to the study by LunchboxWax.
