Self Love Tips

Self Love Tips

Be grateful, often we are always looking at what we want, where we want to be and forget to be grateful for where we are at the moment. Once we have achieved something, we are moving onto the next goal we want to achieve. 

Every morning write a list of 3 things that you are grateful for in your life at that moment. This will focus your attention on how far you have come and also how much you have achieved, even if it feels like you have more to achieve.

Focus on your success' and celebrate them no matter how small. Everyday we can focus on what goes wrong and how something we wanted didn't work out, instead look at what did work out and be confident that more situations will also work out for you. 

Practice self compassion, this is a sure way to grow in self love. We can be hardest on oursleves and forget to look at all we achieve. Be kind to yourself if you made a mistake, or if something went wrong. 

We are all human and learning from each other and our experiences. By being kind to yourself you will feel better and be in a better state to make more informed decisions. 

Take a break. Just take a day to do nothing, this frees you from the feeling of I have to, because you don't. It is okay to take a day to do nothing and just be. Being still and feeling no sense of obligation can be freeing. You can say no to friends, parties, coffee dates, to have a day to yourself. 

Practice Daily Affirmations, A book I love is by Idil Ahmed called Manifest Now and I loved the book so much that I also bought the audio book to listen her affirmation. Affirmations are a great way to interrupt your own negative self talk and programme more positive thoughts. 

Affirmations need to be listened to consistently for great results as by listening to them you are over writing your negative thoughts and it takes time for your brain to learn new thoughts, almost like learning a new language, it need to be repeated for your brain to memorise it. 

Spring Clean, this may seem a bit odd for self love, however clearing out always makes you feel better. De cluttering can be difficult at first if you are attached to your possessions but once you have de-cluttered clothes, products, things that you don't use or need, you feel more organised and free.

Accept yourself. Forgive yourself for past mistakes, any guilt you feel and accept that this is where you are now but you can do an be anything you want to be. It will take time and practice but it can be achieved. Believe in the impossible but take it one step at a time.
