With Valentine’s Day coming up, love is in the air! So I wanted to bring up the most important love there is – Self Love.
So what is Self Love? Let’s start with what it is not. It is not something you buy in a shop. It is not something you achieve by getting a new haircut or losing weight.
Self Love is a job that starts from the inside. It is an ongoing practice. It is a process of understanding & appreciating the self, having compassion for the self.
When you love yourself, you will have a better self care routine – nutrition, movement, spiritual practice, sleep & social interactions. You will become more mindful – understanding yourself better. You will be able to say no & set boundaries. You will be able to forgive yourself & others.
Self Love “grows from actions that support our physical, psychological & spiritual growth” – Psychology Today.
Only when we are accepting of our uniqueness, appreciate our strengths & weaknesses, can we truly give & receive love from an authentic place.
Here are a few basic practices to help get you started with a self love process.
Sending you love,
