The Doctors share an easy tip that can boost your self-esteem and it involves doing something nice for someone else.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains that according to psychologists paying someone a compliment benefits both the giver and the receiver by helping to raise both people's confidence. According to clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, a compliment is not only a nice gesture, but it also causes our brains to react in the same manner as receiving money.
"A compliment is worth as much as gold, apparently," Dr. Judy says.
As for those who do not love getting compliments, Dr. Travis suggests to always accept one when it is given and to try and not dismiss them.
"If someone gives you a compliment, go ahead and accept it. If you deflect it, it can seem like an act of humility, but it actually reinforces low self-esteem," he adds.
