    a rise in one's self-esteem

    Another benefit of exercise is a rise in one's self-esteem.


    Hi,
    Is "rise" in the above interchangeable with "boost, and raise without changing its meaning? Thanks.

    Re: a rise in one's self-esteem

    Not exactly. To me, a 'boost' is a temporary thing. If you keep exercising, your self-esteem should rise and stay up.
    'Raise' is wrong, if that was part of the question. It's not a noun in this context.
