Seven Ways to Practice Self-Love:

 

  1. Practice Self-Care Like You Mean That Shit. Develop habits that keep your mind and body fit and strong. Sleep. Move Your Body. Eat like you love your body. Rest. Get in tune with your spirituality if that feels right to you.  And....Breath. Your breath is life. Get to know it more.

  2. Be Selective. Surround yourself with family and friends who encourage and support you. Cultivate close relationships with others who share your goals. Engage in deep conversations where you can share your feelings and receive validation.

  3. Fire up your passions. Identify the activities that bring you joy and fulfillment. Block out time each day for something you love.
  1. Future Visioning. Give yourself something to strive for. Working towards realistic and challenging goals builds your confidence as you add to your achievements.

  2. Create Fireproof Boundaries. Know your limits so you can define what behavior you consider acceptable. That may include physical boundaries such as needing your own space and psychological boundaries such as being entitled to your own feelings and opinions.

  3. Be Your Own Advocate. Once you understand your needs, you can communicate them to others. You’ll grow more skillful as you practice being direct and tactful in letting someone know if they cross your boundaries.

  4. Find Your Tribe. Ask for what you need. Let others know specifically what they can do, whether you’re looking for practical assistance like pitching in with housework or just a friendly ear to listen while you sort out your feelings.

Loving yourself can help you to enjoy more happiness, overcome challenges, and build healthier relationships with others. Make it a habit to treat yourself with kindness and respect.
