International Boost Self-Esteem Month
February 1 – February 28 CST
International Boost Self-Esteem Month is observed in February of each year. Boosting one’s self-esteem is great for fighting depression and anxiety and is good for overall mental wellness. According to Oprah Winfrey, “Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgment of others.”
International Boost Self-Esteem Month is dedicated to the improvement of self-esteem among people of all cultures, race, ethnicities, age groups and social status. Self-esteem, simply put, is how you feel about yourself. And while self-esteem begins to develop in early childhood, it is not set in stone. In fact, self-esteem is ever-changing throughout life. There may be times when self-esteem is at an all time high, and others when it has taken an undesirable dip, perhaps due to a stressful life event or mental health struggle, like clinical depression. Everyone has the power to develop their self-esteem, and the benefits are significant.
