With a growing commitment to wellness you must incorporate self-love into your daily routine. But what does self-love look like?
The first thing is to be clear about what you need. We can get so caught up checking off boxes, tasks, and to-do lists that we lose touch of what we need. Set an intention for the next 3 months, the next week, each day, and as you do everything throughout your day. Take note of the things that don’t match your intentions and start setting boundaries and saying no.
Making More Me Time
What me time looks like can vary greatly from one person to the next. It’s about taking time out each and every day for you. This might include time to gratitude journal, meditate, jog, read, hang out with friends, head to the spa, or go to a park to spend time in nature. If it lifts you up and breaks the monotony then it qualifies as me time. Just make sure it is time spent unplugged.
Saying Yes To Life
While it is essential to know what to say no to, it is even more important to know what to say yes to. Self-love is about commitment to personal growth and development, which we do by saying yes to a vacation. Yes, to going back to school. Yes, to the weekend warrior seminar. Yes, to new people and new experiences. Yes, to things that scare us—because if you never try you never know.
Self-love often falls to the bottom of our priorities but it is what keeps us balanced.
