Self Love is such an ongoing process. It’s not something you can do for a season and then think that it’s over. It’s something that you have to work on daily! There are many things you can do to implement acts of self love but here are my top five favorites that I personally incorporate in my life on a weekly basis!! If I don’t do anything else, I’m definitely focusing on these five right here:
It’s something about working out and exercising that will make you feel sooo good about yourself!! It’s a confidence booster and it makes you feel accomplished. Not only that, working out leads to a healthier life and in my opinion, a healthy life is always a great life.
- Fix Up!
When you look a mess, most of the time you feel like one too but I have found that fixing yourself up is also another way to kick a bad mood!! Now sometimes, I have my days where I intentionally look a mess on purpose. Being ugly in peace is like another way of relaxation for me – no make-up, no eyebrows, hair all over the place, and in my pajamas! I’ll be walking around the house looking like “who did it and why?” all day but there are some days when I’m just in a bad mood and I feel UGLY forreal! One of the things that really helps turn my mood around is simply putting on something cute and fixing myself up! It makes me feel better. I don’t why but it does. You should try it!
- ACCEPT THAT EVERYONE WON’T LIKE YOU!
If your goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness. When you’re comfortable with not being liked by everyone, you can definitely love yourself a lot more, be true to yourself, you’re more comfortable with exploring your own feelings and you can also freely express your thoughts. When you can accept the fact that not everyone will like you, you can inspire other people and it teaches you to offer kindness and compassion without expectations. Remember, a big part of self-love is not saying, “I’m conceited with myself. I just love me enough to not let what others think about me change the way I feel and think about me.”
- Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
People achieve success and fail at different rates. Never compare your journey to someone else’s.
- CELEBRATE Your Wins!
If nobody else celebrates you, then YOU celebrate yourself !! Learn how to clap for yourself and keep it moving. Give yourself that pat on the back when you know you deserve it !! There’s nothing wrong with being proud of you and what you achieve, especially when you know it’s something that you’ve worked SO hard for! I don’t care if it’s small wins or big ones .. make sure you take some time to love on you & treat yourself when necessary!
See? Simple! Self Love isn’t always working on the physical part of you; it’s about taking care of the mental part too! Now, some of that is easier said than done but no matter how easy or hard it is, it’s always well worth it in the end! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post today!
