30 Days of Self-Love

I can’t emphasize enough how important self love is. Interestingly enough it is probably one of the hardest tasks, especially when you are well aware of all the areas in life you want to improve upon. We all experience difficulty at one point or another in practicing self-love and self-appreciation. Even though we have so much to be proud of and grateful for, we often overlook these things because it feels as though our struggles and insecurities overshadow these amazing qualities.

Over the past month or so, I decided to take a stand against the negative thoughts toward myself and habits that do nothing positive for my life. I started eating better, because it’s important to take care of the only body you’ll ever have. In turn, you feel better, sleep better and over time, you’ll look healthier too. Not to say that looking good is the only way to feel good, but I know it is a common insecurity and self-mage is a major struggle of mine in particular.

Aside from what I consume, I began making positive affirmations to myself, such as: “Success is defined by my willingness to work harder and keep going.” or “I trust my ability to thrive through any obstacle that comes my way.” These are the positive messages we need to tell ourselves in order to accomplish our goals and feel good while doing it. Many people, myself included, are guilty of beating themselves up over little things in order to motivate them to do better, but it actually has the opposite effect.

Finally, the last step I took towards self-love is making it a point to show myself appreciation through little tasks and “me-time” on a daily basis. I put together this list of actions and activities that allow you to sit back and reflect on yourself and what you want to improve upon, while loving yourself in the process. It’s these “feel-good” tasks that help show us where our priorities lie, and the importance of making time for ourselves in order to stay tune with our mind and body. Take a look over this list, and maybe you’ll find some ideas to make yourself feel good!
