In today's blog post, I would be sharing some tips on showing some good love to yourself or simply put "self-love".
Before I jump right into the tips, I feel it would be nice to explain what self-love entails 😊. Self-love simply means, having regard for one's own wellbeing and happiness. There's a popular saying that "you can't give what you don't have" and "you must first love yourself". I totally agree because without loving yourself, it is hard to be completely selfless in a relationship/friendship with anyone.
Self-love is a very broad topic. But for the purpose of this blog post, the focus is on those simple things you can do to appreciate yourself because truth be told, life can get hectic and tiring sometimes ( if not most times😏). However, it is not a bad idea to slow down, take a deep breath and just give yourself some good loving💜.
Tips on Self-love
1. Accept Yourself
I know this sounds cliche, but it is the first and most important step to loving yourself. It basically means coming to terms with who you are and accepting that you are enough!
2. Stop the Comparison
I know we all have goals, dreams and aspirations. And most times we tend to compare ourselves with our peers. But this is very unhealthy! I also understand that we are in a world where our values are judged/measured by how we look, how much we earn or what we have achieved. That however doesn't mean we are not doing good. As a matter of fact, we are all not where we want to be, but, we are obviously not where we were yesterday! So stop the comparison and just do you😊.
3. Give yourself a treat!
Yes, I said it. You definitely do not have to wait to get invited on a date or something. Once in a while, intentionally take yourself out; to the movies, restaurant, spa, anywhere nice. Just take out time to enjoy things that really feel good to you ( it could be in the evening after you get off work or the weekends).
4. Spoil yourself with gifts
Gifts do not necessarily have to be given to you by someone else. You could always gift yourself items, especially things you've had your eyes on for a while. I would use myself as an example🤓. For sometime, I have had my eyes on skincare products from @aramiessentials
So one day, I just decided to place an order for the products and gift them to myself. You can do that too! You don't have to break the bank to spoil yourself with gifts every now and then 😊.
5. Last, but definitely not the least! Drink lots of water and mind your business😊🤣
Bonus tip: Go on that trip/vacation you've been planning in your head!
