BUILDING A POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE IN THE SELFIE GENERATION
Imagine a tool that boosts confidence, raises self-esteem and fits seamlessly into your daily routine.
That’s the Confidence Star! The Star is a neatly-sized mirror you can mount on any wall. Its surface is beautifully etched with powerful, self-affirming statements that you say aloud while looking at your own reflection.
The Confidence Star is designed to help you shine.
‘The Confidence Star is the fastest, easiest and most effective way to change negative thoughts into positive. Get your child one and just watch how their face lights up.’ Ife Thomas, creator of the Confidence Star
The science behind the Star’s feel-good effect
Psychological studies have found that repeating positive affirmations results in positive thinking.
By using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI), it is possible to map out the changes in brain structure triggered by repeating self-affirmations.
What does the science mean for day-to-day life?
Affirmations have been shown to help shake off the tendency to linger on negative experiences. By engaging in consistent and repetitive positive self-talk, you build the resilience to cope with the pressures of modern life.
The Star is great for children...
Teaching children to build their self-esteem can increase confidence in who they are and what they can achieve. The benefits can include a positive effect on educational attainment, improved emotional intelligence and the resilience to better deal with difficult situations at school such as bullying, insecurities, peer pressure and the general challenges of growing up.
... and adults
Every year, a quarter of all adults experience mental health issues. Building your self-esteem is a simple but effective way to improve mental resilience. Repeating affirmations to yourself in front of the Confidence Star at the start and end of the day is a fast and easy way to integrate confidence-boosting habits into your daily routine. And with self-confidence comes the ability to manage your emotions better and deal with challenging people and situations more effectively. You are giving yourself the gift of self-control, which is a fundamental condition for happiness and wellbeing.
