I’m sure we have all heard of “You need to start loving yourself before you expect others to love you”, this one saying is why I started writing this post. At some point in our lives we have all been that person that looks into the mirror not to see ourselves but look for the flaws, have I gained more weight? Why do I have that pimple over there? Or downgrading ourselves in front of others. In these kinda situations, we reach to a point of letting go of ourselves completely. Eating unhealthy, cause what’s the point when I gain weight even when drinking water? sleeping less or way more than we should, not looking after ourselves in general, and falling deeper and deeper into not caring and maybe leading ourself straight to depression!
- Think about people in your life, are there some that all they bring is negativity? Do know anyone that makes you doubt yourself every time you see them? Stop talking to them!
- Learn to say no! Stop trying to please others by making yourself miserable.
- Let it go! Let go of your past and mistakes that you’ve made and forgive yourself and move on.
- Put yourself and your feelings first.
- Try writing or keeping a journal when everything gets too much to handle and you become overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings.
- See a therapist! therapists are not for mental people, they are their to help you so book an appointment and go see one. I promise you that you will benefit from it.
- Read a book! at least one chapter a day. If you don’t have time try Audio books.
- Avoid negativity in your life, wether it’s judging, degrading yourself or others or any other form of negativity! Always remember “each to their own”.
- Treat yourself every once in a while. Go to your favourite coffee shop or buy that dress you’ve been wanting for a while.
- Know your coping mechanisms.
A healthy adult needs 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night to function at our best. sleeping less or even oversleeping can both cause harm.
Buy yourself some comfy beddings and maybe a lavender sleeping spray. ( or make yours, by mixing a few drops of lavender essential oil and water pour them in a spray bottle and enjoy)
Physical activities make us fitter we all know that! But did you know it can also make you happier? Your brain releases serotonin, dopamine and endorphins and as a result you feel happier after a workout session.
Spend one or two nights a week ( or even more if you’ve got them time) to do something creative that you enjoy. Wether it’s painting, writing, blogging or etc; by the end of it you will have a sense of achievement for doing something you’ve actually enjoyed.
Your body is a temple
- Drink more water
- Eat healthier meals
- Get a mani/pedi or a facial
- Just be good to yourself
And at last no matter how busy life gets, you come first ❤
Lots of Love
