Buy new clothes.
If you are already a shopaholic this wouldn't help you to boost your self-esteem.
However, if you have not bought any new clothes for a while, getting some new outfits that you feel really great in could be a brilliant self-esteem boost.
By feeling like you look great you will also start to feel like you are great.
Don't try to boost your self-esteem with dancing if you hate dancing! However, if you like moving your body to music you can use this as a way of boosting your self-esteem.
You can dance with friends or at home on your own.

If you want compliments you don't have to wait for others to tell you the words that you want to hear.
Boost your self-esteem by giving yourself a tap on the back every time you succeed in doing something that you wanted to do.

Do something that you always wanted to do but never did.
If you still have some hidden unrealised dreams, give them some fresh air and go out and make them into reality.

It creates a great feeling of independence, power and competence when you take action to realise your dreams.
Give or create a present for your friend.
