Self-Love Habits

If you are separated, divorced or bereaved, you may feel like you are going to feel a whirlwind of emotions for the rest of your life. However, that’s not the truth because I’ll teach you how to love yourself!

It is extremely important to hold on to hope and stay positive as we all continue to manage our lives’ difficult times. It is vital to note that both the body and brain need to feel safe in order to cope with the challenges. I'm here to share what helped me to feel better during the worst time of my life, when my 34 year old relationship came to an end.

How to Love Yourself? Make Yourself a Priority!

It is easy to forget about your own needs and feelings when you are focused on everything else around you, especially if you have children to care for. While putting others before you can be a great virtue, how can you help others if you don't put the oxygen mask on yourself first?

If you are losing sight of your own aspirations, compromising your own happiness, and taking up less space, you are ultimately losing sight of who you are. What can be more disheartening than realising you have lost your own self while making others comfortable?

Selfcare is not selfish. Rather, it’s the most important aspect of learning how to love yourself. All of your feelings and actions are valid as long as it’s not hurting anyone else. Prioritising yourself involves devoting time and energy to your goals, interests, needs, and dreams.

Show yourself the very same kindness and empathy that you show others. In fact, go a little longer for yourself!

You never know unless you stay true to yourself and stand your ground. It is important to let go of things that are weighing you down. It implies pushing yourself to do the things you really want in life. When you love yourself, you grow self-respect and confidence, and it is only then that you can be completely selfless.

Do what makes you feel happy

We all can become so preoccupied with the past, the disappointment, day-to-day activities, and moving on with the next thing that we forget to enjoy the moment. However, when you're doing something you enjoy every day, you will feel more motivated.

Having something that you will look forward to, particularly on the not-so-great days, will provide you with a dose of encouragement to get through the tough times. Finding time to do the things we enjoy is important – not just for our short-term gratification, but also for our emotional and psychological well-being.

Whether it’s cooking up a hearty meal or going for a walk in the park with your dog, or a friend, aim to schedule in the time for the things you love. There is no guilt in indulging in the things you like.
