By Brown Articles Published 10/27/2011 | Life Transitions

Many women go through that phase in midlife that is a difficult transition, and this is when they need a boost to help them get through these difficult times.

The best way to deal with midlife transitions is to start giving some value to several aspects in your life. The first issue to deal with is your self confidence.

Try to focus on all the good aspects in your life and try and concentrate on these and appreciate them in more depth.

Changing your wardrobe can help you boost your confidence. Although this may not be an extremely important aspect, changing your clothes into a few items that will make you feel good, will help you feel better and good looking, thus add confidence in yourself. Keep in mind, that when we look good it affects how we carry ourselves and interact with others. So make sure you care for the way you dress and take care of your personal appearance, and enjoy being who you are.

Working out is another way to feel more confident about the way you feel and look. Taking care of your physical aspect is important as is eating properly. Make a list of activities you really enjoy doing, such as biking, swimming, dancing, tennis, running or yoga and make sure you do some activity every day, as this will provide you with more energy and improve your general mood as well as your vigor.

A good posture is also important, so you should keep your shoulders back and head up, breathe and relax, allowing your smile to be present at all time, this will  make you more confident. The way you walk is another important factor, as confident people always have a brisk walk, as they have a purpose and know where they are heading.

Get down and read all positive and inspirational reading material, music and make sure you are surrounded by positive people and images. Start being positive too, by complimenting others when they have done something good, as this will help you see the good side of things and will bring out the good side of your character.

Make sure you speak up your thoughts at least once a day, during discussions with family members or friends, as you also have an opinion just as everyone else and it is important to speak up for your self confidence.

The more you focus on your life and problems the more depressed you will feel, so change direction and start helping others who have difficulties in their lives. Giving your time and energy to help people will also help you forget your own issues and see them in another perspective.  You can find out which associations need help, or others you many have an interest or inclination in. Remember that the more you give the more you will receive.
