The Recipe to Self Love

The Recipe to Self Love

I have always wondered what the secrets were to learning to love yourself. What I found out was that there is NO SECRET. It is something that is learned and practiced. I know, I thought there was going to be some magic word that I could say and BOOM I’d love myself. Obviously, that’s not going to happen though.

When it comes to self love, you need to learn that it’s OK to worry about yourself and no one else. If someone asks you for a favor that you really don’t want to do, say no! You don’t have to take on more than you can handle and you certainly don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.

When you wake up in the morning, sit down and remember what you’re grateful for. Is it your family, your dog or even your job? Remember that throughout the day. Remembering what your grateful for can make your day just a little easier.

If you are feeling too stressed, TAKE A MINUTE TO BREATHE! Always remember to take time for yourself. Stress can really effect your health. If things aren’t going your way. TAKE A DEEP BREATH!

Have you tried meditating? I’m telling you, meditation has done wonders for me. I have used apps like Calm and Headspace. Meditating has really helped me when I’m angry and stressed out. Taking time and focusing on my breathing has just helped me relax. Also check out my blog post: Why is meditation good for you? I explain all the different reasons why meditation can help you.

Another idea that you can do is exercise!! I know it sounds horrible. I HATE exercising as much as you do, but it really is a great way to fuel your energy. Plus, you’ll loose weight and tone up. Who doesn’t want to loose weight, especially since it’s the holiday season. It’ll be that much easier to love yourself when you like how you look.

Remember to love yourself because you are loved!
