“Loving yourself is about weaving a tapestry of little things that make you shine your joy”
1. Greet Yourself
At the beginning of every day, when you first wake up, give yourself a big hug and tell yourself ‘I love you’. Feel the warmth from your words and your cuddle.
2. Celebrate Yourself
At the end of every day, when you are lying in bed, remember all of the lovely things that you did for yourself and others that day. Every smile, every moment of creativity, every moment of stillness, every moment of kindness. Celebrate it all.
3. Be Kind To Yourself
There are ups and downs in life. Challenges and obstacles.
No matter what comes at you, be kind and gentle with yourself throughout.
You are doing so well.
4. Choose Positivity
Every time negativity comes up throughout your day, bless it and send it on its way. Choose positivity instead. What a thing to love yourself for!
5. One Act Every Day
Do one thing every day that demonstrates self-love. Maybe it is something you need: – a healthy walk, a wholesome soup or a moment of peace and quiet. Maybe it is a bit of indulgence: – a comforting slice of chocolate cake, a massage or an afternoon kip.
6. Connect With Your Inner Child Often
See yourself as the little person inside you. When someone hurts you, when you feel angry, when you feel shy, when you feel afraid. Think for a moment about who it really is that is behind all of these emotions and cuddle them.
Meditation gives you clarity.
It gives you a much-needed break from the world and it connects you to who you really are and where you come from.
Meditation turns on the tap to an infinite source of love.
In whatever form:- yoga, running, walking, tennis, swimming. Your body is the greatest thing you will ever own and you can treat it as such. So go and release some endorphins!
9. Get Enough Sleep
We need time to recharge. We don’t expect our phone to run all day unless we have charged it properly at night, do we? Our minds, bodies and spirits are very busy all day long and they need quality rest.
10. Play With Perspective
Step into the shoes of someone that really loves you. See yourself as they see you. See all those things that they love about you. See just how amazing you are.
11. Be Grateful
Express gratitude for everything in your life, all day long.
From your comfy bed, to your wonderful legs, to the water that runs freely from your taps at home.
You will begin to feel so lucky and the Universe will reward you with so much more.
12. Congratulate Yourself
Everyone responds to encouragement, including you! Every time you remember to love yourself, every time you complete a task, every time you remember to laugh: – tell yourself how well you are doing!
The world is your oyster and you were born to have it all. Get dreaming – love yourself enough to go after the life you really want.
Don’t wait too long to begin loving yourself. You deserve all of your love – you are a magnificent expression of life.
With all my love,
