6 WAYS TO PRACTICE SELF-LOVE DAILY

Showing yourself some self-love can go a long way in strengthening your mental and emotional health and peace of mind. Here are six ways to practice self-love daily:

REALIZE THAT SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH

Say it with me: self-care is not selfish. It is you taking care of your basic needs and rights as a human being. It is about doing the little things that bring you joy and promote peace within you. None of us can pour from an empty cup.

FORGIVE YOURSELF FOR PAST MISTAKES

Sometimes we carry the weight of our past decisions and actions into our present. While thinking about the past is important to give us clarity and perspective, it’s important not to beat ourselves up. Today is always a chance to do better and to learn from mistakes, not to dwell in regret. Be kind to yourself.

GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO FEEL ANY EMOTION

Every day we will feel many different emotions. It’s ok to not feel ok, as they say. Allow your negative emotions to pass over and through you without guilt and the need to be “happy” all the time. Realize that feeling any and all of your emotions is a normal part of being human.

LIMIT NEWS AND SOCIAL MEDIA

While it’s certainly important to know what’s happening in the world, there is such a thing as too much information. We are inundated daily by news reports and everyone else’s opinion about all of it. Try to limit your intake to a reasonable amount per day and maybe even consider taking one day per week to detox completely from media.

DECLUTTER YOUR SPACE

Sometimes we let clutter take over without even realizing it. Many times physical clutter can represent mental clutter. When we take the time to declutter our space, it contributes to mental decluttering and a more relaxed atmosphere.

GET OUT IN NATURE

Humans are not meant to be cooped up all day. Do yourself a favor and get outside for fresh air even if it means just standing on your front porch. Fresh air, sunshine, and greenery go a long way in perking up your mood!


What’s one way you practice self-love in your daily life?

    Self love not being something that’s selfish has been an eye opener for me. I think I struggle with Mommy Guilt too, so that makes it more difficult. This was a good read, thank you.

  3. Declutter….that’s a big one for me. It’s not only the space but also my head that gets filled up and messy. Thanks for the reminder. Great post.
