Here are 4 ways you can begin to love yourself…
You can learn to love yourself .. You may have heard you can’t have happiness if your not happy with yourself .. Well this goes the same for love too. You can’t love someone else if you don’t first love yourself.
1. Accept where you are today .
Let’s face it, we are not perfect nor should we try to be. Accept your faults and your downfalls , they are not necessarily a bad thing just a part of your character . Look around breathe and take in the moment right now . You don’t have to be the perfect weight, size, mom , friend etc. you are perfectly imperfect and that’s ok !
Love who you are right now!
2. Have relationships and friendships that make you feel loved and appreciated.
It’s okay to say bye bye to unhealthy relationships if they are not making you feel good. You want to surround yourself with the people that accept you for who you are .. I mean no one wants to be 40 something or older and dealing with the mean girls from high school. We are way to old and life is short ! Your vibe will attract your Tribe!
3. Connect with your inner self.
Yes this might mean meditating , going to yoga , or doing something for at least 5 minutes each day .. Make self affirmations , write them down and read them aloud to yourself so you hear it out loud .. You are loved, you are strong etc.. I love yoga and know that I can’t live without it .. when I get stressed I go and leave it all on the mat. It works ! Don’t be afraid to have positive self talks with yourself . You are worth it !
4. Learn to take care of yourself.
If you are not caring for yourself first you can’t help others. Simple things to take care of yourself can include exercising , vitamins , diffusing oils ( like orange, lemon or bergamot), eating healthy . I know if I am not taking my vitamins and doing these things that I am no good to myself or helping my family .. On days that I am having a bad day or even on good days. Yoga also is soo good for releasing toxins that you have inside you and teaching your mind how to breathe. Or just go for a walk and listen to music .. sit outside ! Summer time is the perfect time to start living the life you love!
I know that life isn’t easy .. we are pushed and pulled everyday by the ones that love us and we care for, but if you don’t take care of yourself through all of these situations you will be left with an empty shelf . Currently I am reading the book Present over Perfect .. It’s amazing and if you want to check it out you can here ..
So only you can take the step and changes to make it happen .. No one can do it for you .. If you would like to know my some healthy alternatives that are working wonders for me right now .. just email me. I would love to connect with you!
with all my love ,
