Loving Yourself Changes Everything

Loving YourselfLoving yourself feels better than loathing yourself.

We’ve all heard these words.

So, what else is new?

The question is, what does self-love look like in your daily life?

Here are some examples of self-love from my own life and the lives of my friends and clients.

  1. When you love yourself, you listen to and honor your body. You rest when tired, you eat when hungry.
  2. You spend most of your connection time with people who genuinely care about you  and value you.
  3. You always put fun things in your ‘to do’ list because you always deserve to have fun. You don’t have to earn this.
  4. You give yourself food that is healthy, and also delicious.
  5. You take the time to care for your body in ways that make you look and feel great.
  6. You choose to exercise in some form, because it’s a gift you give to yourself.
  7. You have the same compassion for yourself that you’d have for a beloved friend.
  8. When you don’t do something you’re trying to do, you gently look at the ‘why’ with compassion and curiosity.
  9. When you fail at something you’ve attempted, you simply step back and try another door. No judgments.
  10. When your thoughts take you to a dark place, you question these thoughts, instead of automatically believing them.

How do you love yourself?
