2 Simple Steps Towards Cultivating More Self-Love

self-love

Cultivating self-love is an important part of releasing anxiety.

Self-love is a phrase that gets thrown around regularly but is often misunderstood. In fact, self-love is not only about feeling good about yourself. It is about appreciating your unique gifts and talents. However, being grateful for personal talents is hard to cultivate. As a result, we’ve created this easy to follow guide that will help cultivate more love towards oneself.

Being Mindful Of Unkind Thoughts

We all have a variety of thoughts that cross our minds on a daily basis. In fact, being connected to emotions is a great way for everyone to acknowledge their thoughts. When you begin to slow down and start noticing how you talk to yourself you can course correct if the thoughts are negative ones. Think about how you’d speak to your best friend. Would you speak negatively every time your best friend messed up? If not, then why would you beat yourself up if you did the same thing? Therefore, next time you start falling down the rabbit hole of criticizing yourself, stop. Acknowledge the thought and try to see things from a different perspective. As a result, you treat yourself with a lot more kindness which in turn creates more self-love.

Self-Care Is An Important Practice

We always have to take the time to take care of ourselves. In fact, just like they tell us to place the oxygen mask on ourselves first on an airplane, we must adopt healthy habits if we want to be able to show up as the best version of ourselves in the world. Committing yourself to healthy practices such as eating well-balanced meals, exercising, and getting proper sleep, you ensure that you are fully complete and able to show up and be of service to those that rely on you.
