Having a loving relationship with yourself can be overwhelming and sometimes hard work.
Good news! Help is here to kick start your self-love…
Discover your values and live in a way that honours them.
Knowing what’s really important to you and doing the things that make you happy are part of the journey of loving yourself. You know you’re taking better care of yourself when your values, not other people’s actions, guide your lifestyle and decision-making.
Build a community of people you love, and who love you back.
They help keep you grounded, supported, vibrant, and healthy. They remind you who you are when you forget, and guide you back to yourself when you’re lost.
Listen to your inner dialogue.
What’s really running through your mind? What are you thinking and saying to yourself? Are you speaking words of love, power, possibility, and magic, or are you chattering in fear and driven by scarcity? Be aware of the quality of your thoughts.
Say, “I love you,” in the mirror with a smile on your face.
Yes, it’s true. Ramping up your self-love sparks a deeper intimacy with yourself. It’s easier to look into your eyes and say, “I love you,” without feeling weird or self-conscious about it.— resistance to this practice means you really need to do it.
Remove yourself from toxic habits and relationships.
Habits and relationships that drain your time, energy, and emotions become less attractive once you begin to give more love to yourself. Phase out anything and anyone that doesn’t lift you up in some way.
Initiate a wellness routine that lets you love your body and appreciate the real you.
The important thing is to find something that floods your brain with endorphins and opens your eyes to how far you can go with your body.
Do a thought dump in a journal each day.
Clear out the clutter in your heart and head so you can create beautiful things. Write out everything that gets you down so they don’t have time to fester and poison your psyche. Have fresh, bright spaces in your heart open to lightning bolts and wow! moments that fill you up inside with light and joy. Explore your dreams and deepest desires, and find ways to make them part of your day-to-day activities…
