5 Self Love Tips and Reminders
If you don’t value and love yourself how will you ever reach the life that you both deserve and desire?
When you love yourself you are able to make better choices and go after things that are equal to your value and your worth; and only you can define your value and appreciate your worth. The love that you have within yourself is what you reflect to people around you, the beauty you see within yourself will be the beauty you see in others. Don’t buy into anything that devalues you. Take the time to focus on everything that makes you beautiful and unique.
So how do you practice self love?
Just be OK with you! Value and accept yourself; this allows you to invest yourself fully in everything that makes you happy and fulfilled. Being more mindful about self love can help you to set goals, complete tasks, build positive relationships, and achieve your aspirations. Self love is the cohesion of all you are, it means embracing everything that makes you ‘you’! Stand strong in how you live your life to your own fullest intention and greatest good. Your happiness is created by you through the heart-led journey of self love.
Self love tips and reminders!
Reflection on all the aspects of your personality is important so you can see yourself clearly.
This includes all your faults; you are not complete without them! Know who you are and understand yourself. Self love means having your own standards of what, how, and who you allow into your life. Your life experiences and people around you play an important part in showing you your strengths and weaknesses; always value your life lessons because they lead you closer to the true you and accepting yourself.
Don’t measure yourself against anyone else.
Any form of comparison is detrimental to your mental and emotional well being, it’s like a driven and intentional attack on yourself. Loving yourself means having self respect and living authentically with a strong sense of your own needs, morals, behaviours, passions, and beliefs. Always appreciate yourself for the individual you are; as human beings we are all imperfectly perfect in our own unique way.
Try to be mindful of how you talk to yourself. Doubts, fears, and worries always lead you away from your truth, your centre.
Your emotions become tangled in mind matter rather than your mind and heart working in tandem together with clarity, with belief, and with purpose. You have your own inner guidance system, your wisdom, your instincts, and your intuition; learn to guide yourself from within. Self love keeps you in tune with who you are and as a result you can make better progress to fulfilment and achieving goals. Keep a positive mindset with your highest intentions at the heart of your thoughts as much as possible.
Taking care of your physical body is important, your body needs to be cared for and nourished.
Bad food choices, habits and addictions, lack of exercise and sleep deplete you and drain your energy resources, this in turn directly impacts you mentally and emotionally too, and how you see yourself. Try to take care of your body, your vehicle, as much as possible!
You should always want the best for yourself, and only you can decide what that is.
Always act with your best interests at heart and be your own best friend, trust your inner wisdom and intuition. Show yourself the same encouragement, support, love, and acceptance as you would to someone you dearly love. Love always grows with focused attention. Be attentive to you, you deserve to be happy in your own skin!
One final quote which sums this all up nicely is from the legendary Lucille Ball
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
