Tips on Loving yourself

Happy Valentine’s Day my beauts. ❤️

It is true I do not celebrate this day, not for a particular reason but it is just a normal day for me. Therefore, instead of the lovey dovey mush that may be shoved in our faces today I thought I would dedicate a post to YOU and ME. Well about self-love and all that jazz.

Here are some tips I have been using more often…

Acceptance

First of all I think loving yourself comes with ACCEPTING yourself flaws and all. Once you have accepted that you are not perfect and that is ok, you will find yourself more confident and happy with who you are. You will start to shine like the little brilliance that you are. And OWN that shit. You are you and there is no one else, so damn right you better accept that and show off your amazingness!

Prioritise your health

Yes I mean look after your body and health- this is so important and no one has a right to tell you otherwise. Your mental health is a priority and if something or someone is compromising that then bye bye. You have every right to take some time to focus on making sure your health is ok. Whether that is reading a book, having a bath or just taking time away from a situation then you do that.

Kind words

By this I mean be nice to yourself. Once you start speaking to yourself using kind words you will start to appreciate yourself more. I like to look in the mirror everyday and tell myself three things I love about myself that day or praise myself on things I have done. It could be anything, not just looks but things you do. E.g. “I love that you stood up and gave that presentation today”. This sort of links with celebrating your wins however big or small.

Treat yourself

As I have mentioned in a few posts now, I am doing more things solo. It is nice to appreciate your own company and do things solo. Therefore, look after yourself and treat yourself by buying yourself flowers etc. Show yourself some love and have those self-care days.

Calm your mind

By this I mean take some time every day to just relax. This could be through meditating or yoga (both of which have really helped me- although I need to start yoga again). Just take some time to sit and breathe in and out and just be in that moment.

Do more of what makes you happy

I mean this could be any hobbies or anything, because if you feel good and are enjoying yourself then you are treating yourself right. You may not feel good all the time, and that is ok too (no one is perfect remember). But integrating more of those “feel good” moments into our lives does help.

There are some tips for you. It is time we all stop comparing and start appreciating us being who we are- flaws and all. Have a great Valentine’s whatever you do ❤️

  1. It’s definitely important to put a focus on loving yourself-if you don’t, how can you expect to improve if you don’t accept and believe in yourself! These are some great tips! Treating yourself occasionally and devoting time to relax and do what makes you happy certainly helps!
