14 Ways to Practice Self-Love and Embrace Yourself
We introduce our 'self-love' guide to discovering and embracing your true self. You're unique, and there is no one else like you. Self-love sprouts from actions that enhance our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. Read our 14 ways to practice self-love and embrace yourself.
POSITIVE SELF AFFIRMATIONS
Start your day by speaking positive words to yourself. It will set the foundation and intention for your whole day.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A GIFT
Demonstrate your self-love by gifting yourself. We can be so preoccupied and busy with life that we forget to reward ourselves for just being alive.
UNPLUG AND PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
Be in the moment. Do calming things like yoga, meditation, crafts, or things that you always wanted to try but never had the time for.
TURN YOUR HOME INTO A PEACEFUL SANCTUARY
If you're feeling down, decluttering can help clear your mind. Clean up your space and decorate to put you in a positive mood!
LET PEOPLE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM
It's about the celebration of love, so show your love and appreciation to those in your life who have supported and nurtured you.
Our favourite thing to do is to pamper. Get out your favourite potions, lotions, and smelly stuff and pamper, pamper, pamper girl!
STOP COMPARING YOURSELF
mentors and inspiration in people, but don't compare yourself to others as there is no one else like you. Focus on yourself and feel free.
REMEMBER YOUR VALUE DOESN'T LIE IN HOW YOUR BODY LOOKS
You are valuable because you are you, not because of your body or how others see you. Embrace yourself and the beauty within you.
PROCESS YOUR FEARS
Accept your fears — understand them. Interrogating and evaluating your fears helps you gain clarity and unmask issues in your life that are causing anxiety. This exercise can help you heal and improve your mental health. Don't be afraid to seek professional help.
DON'T WAIT FOR THE OPPORTUNITY
Seize the moment because it may never come back. The timing is never perfect, so don't wait to score your next big dream or goal. Instead of waiting, create the opportunity.
PUT YOURSELF FIRST
Stop feeling guilty about putting yourself first. Find time to decompress and recharge. Your mental or emotional well being is essential. When you're happy, the closest people around you are also happy, reflecting your emotional well-being.
EXERCISE BOLDNESS IN PUBLIC
Speak up your mind. Your voice is as important as anyone else's. Take action and be in charge—your voice matters.
SIMPLICITY IN BEAUTY
Every day, think about one thing that you're grateful for. Appreciating small things around you dismisses exaggerated focus on our mistakes. Remember, "nobody's perfect, everyone makes mistakes", so shift your energy, and find the joy in little things.
BE KIND TO YOURSELF
We cannot please everyone, and that's not what defines our journey. The first step is avoiding toxic people and not adding others' harsh opinions to our minds. Differentiating honest advice from criticizing is the final step. Celebrate yourself, and don't let others get to you.
