exercise helps, even just going on walks outside
talking to people too, sometimes you gotta force yourself into some interaction but you'll feel more human
feeling useful and having something that you find meaningful to do does wonders, so if you can't find a job then find some way to volunteer, an excuse to be helpful and talk to people and have to look after yourself a bit more (appearance etc)

Get a job where you are forced to talk to people. That shit works wonders.

I think being physically fit helps a lot. Not only because you look better, so confidence is boosted that way, but your body operates better, so all your chemicals are right and stuff (I don't know if that's true, but it makes sense to me).

Having accomplishments as well. Setting goals and achieving them, like going on a date, etc. Just things that push you a little bit, so you grow when you do them.

I've exercised for at least an hour a day for the past 3 years. It doesn't do shit for me. It just makes me tired and lethargic.

The problem is that when a person is depressed, they lose interest in whatever they used to enjoy. They sometimes even quit their hobbies for good. It makes it very difficult to do things that are meaningful.

Yeah I used to play guitar and stuff
he didn't ask about depression, but boosting self-esteem, which the advice in this thread is pretty apt for I think

Depression and very low self-esteem come hand-in-hand.

I myself do suffer with very low self-esteem. And in my attempts to boost it over the years using the advice mentioned in this thread, nothing has really made much difference except exhaust what I haven't already tried.

I would try to tell people how to boost self-esteem. But in my experience, it hasn't done very much.

But do move along, I don't want to make this a thread about me.

i think the way exercise works for me is that because i become so tired, i stop caring so much about what people might be thinking of me. it's like a cheap source of power and accomplishment.

I power walk to and from uni every day (about half an hour), and I take longer routes around my town if I have the time. I keep doing it anyway, in the knowledge that it at least keeps me physically fit.

My dinner is home-made almost always. Admittedly, I sometimes fall complacent and eat something really unhealthy for lunch, but that doesn't happen any more often than once or twice a week.

Start running. That's when you start seeing results. Then after start seeing results, run farther or faster, and you'll see double the results in half the time. Running is god-tier exercise.

Does cycling if the weather is nice count?

Generally you have to bike for a lot longer than you would run, and it's best to go uphill as much as you can

so, does a 20 minute relaxed cycle through the park count? no

but a 1 hr cycle where you're struggling with hills? yes

I also struggle with depression, so please listen to me when I say serious exercise is the best thing you can do for yourself. therapy didn't do shit for me and meds haven't done anything so far. I cycle every morning for about an hour and things are getting a lot better. exercise really sucks at first but eventually it's almost fun, especially if you've got a nice playlist to listen to and shit. so do it dude

Ok, cool.

My power tubes still experience more of a vacuum than your dick btw

Not that that isn't exercise or helpful, but I think you gotta push yourself to make it have a serious impact on your self-esteem. Not only does that make a much bigger impression physically so that you'll both look and feel great, but accomplishing goals and even pushing yourself beyond those does wonders too.

But at OP: apart from exercise

Don't eat like shit. I didn't buy into this one til recently but it really does work
Be kind, and honest about it.
And to go with that, don't judge. This is huge, because I think a big part of being timid is often the fear of being judged for being you. It'll make you less angry about petty stuff all the time as well as making you less paranoid about being constantly negatively judged. For real you gotta be chill and this is the key imo.
Obviously take care of yourself in general.
Do your shit well. Put some effort in the things that matter. Be proud of what you've accomplished
Don't dwell on your mistakes. Learn from them but don't let them get stuck in your head. Realize what you did wrong specifically, and do better next time with a fresh start.
Don't forget to smile in social situations homie

These might sound generic but they're legit. I think I may have finally overcome my overall self-loathing and depression and all that mostly just from doing stuff like this. I might come back with more later

You have to eat right too.
There's a saying, "The real work is in the kitchen" or something like that.

A lot of the talk around "self esteem" is BS. It just is.

"self-acceptance", however, is a fairly neglected subject (compared to self esteem, at least) and fairly central to mental health. If you screw up, you ideally say to yourself "that's okay, I'm bound to sometimes make mistakes and that's fine. Can I learn from this failure?" Instead of "oh, look, again I've failed. Goes to show what a worthless piece of shit I am."

It's less about the content of your beliefs about yourself that count, it's your attitude to yourself. If you openly accept your faults without a need to fight them or hide them from yourself, that's self-acceptance. Or, if you want "self esteem" you can always talk to a mirror and tell the image how "badass" and "tonk" it is. Up to you.
