3 Tips To Start Loving Yourself Again

Think about it enough, and you’ll realise that there are far too many people in the world who have no idea just how special they are. Many of us invest far too much time in focussing on the negatives, or are surrounded by so many negative people or influences that we forget about all the things in life there is to be positive about. If this sounds all too familiar, here are some great tips to start loving yourself again!

Make More Time for the Things You Want to Do

If one of your friends calls you up on Friday night and invites you to a night on the town, you’re really under no obligation to say yes. If you’d rather stay in and practice a hobby, or read your favourite book one more time, then do it! While you don’t want to alienate the people who care for you, or miss out on anything that’s a genuine family milestone, it’s very important not to go out and do supposedly pleasurable things just because you feel you need to save face. The next time you’re invited out and feel it’s something you “really should” turn up to, take a step back and think about whether it’s something you really have to do, and whether there’s anything more fulfilling you could be doing with your time. Know when to politely decline, and just be you!

Reward Yourself

It may not feel like it all the time, but we all do things that are deserving of a little treat here and there. Giving yourself rewards makes it easier for you to establish and achieve your goals in life, allows you to recharge your batteries and re-focus your energy, and makes you an all-round more confident person. Don’t carry on thinking that you’re undeserving of all the lovely things you want. If you’ve been window shopping for stylish leather jackets for months on end, take the plunge and get yourself one! If you’ve been straining your stomach and calorie-counting, and it’s all feeling too much, then eat something decadent one evening in the coming week. While rewarding yourself unjustly can quickly snowball out of control, too much hard slugging and discipline can eventually turn into a bad thing. Love yourself by cutting loose once in a while!

Be More Active!

You’re probably sick to death of hearing that you should be more active from blogs like these. However, this is another essential staple in giving yourself the kind of self-love you deserve. Being active doesn’t have to mean gruelling sessions in the gym. It can be as simple as going for a walk around the block, jogging in place while you watch TV (don’t worry, no one’s looking!) or doing some simple yoga poses as part of your morning routine. By making these things a habit, you’ll be loving yourself physically, but mentally too. As you exercise, your brain will release endorphins (feel-good chemicals) and make you feel more energized, optimistic and satisfied. Soon, you’ll find it so much easier to tackle whatever life throws at you.
