Self-Esteem has to do with how much you value and appreciate yourself. It has nothing to do with being egotistical. Some people consider self-esteem and self-confidence to be the same, but they are not.

Join Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, as she discusses the difference between the two, and also explains why good self-esteem is so important to good health.
