If you've been reading of this blog for a while, you already know how much I advocate self-love to all of my friends, family, and readers. And if you're new around here, welcome to the club, you're about to find out! :) Self-Love is a necessary practice of living a happy and healthy life. If you want to read more about how self-love improves our lives and the lives of those we care about, check out this blog post.
Well it's a new year and with that comes lots of fun new advice and tips for you in the self-love department! Today, I'm sharing 5 ways you can practice mega self-love this year.
5 WAYS YOU CAN PRACTICE MEGA SELF-LOVE THIS YEAR
1. When setting goals, focus on how you feel. At the beginning of the new year, it's easy to get caught up with the goals others are making for the new year- to get to the gym more, dieting, etc. But when you set goals at the beginning of the year, focus on how you feel, inside and out. What things make you feel good and what things are weighing you down? Make goals to do more of what makes you feel good and to eliminate the things in your life that are weighing you down. This is a great way to practice mega self-love, by planning a life where you feel amazing. Don't get caught up in the goals other people set which can so often be based on how they look or what society expects of them. Makes goals based on how you want to feel inside and that'll honor yourself in the best way possible!
2. Make a list of all the fun things you want to try and experiences you'd like to have. The little things and the big things, nothing is too big or small when making your "life list." (Other people call it a bucket list, I call it a life list because it's about living life to it's fullest!) You can see my "Life List" here. Once you make a list of all the things you'd love to do in life, make it your goal to cross 2 of them off of your list this year! Make this the year you go rock climbing and get baptized. Or make it the year you do a girl's day picnic in the park and travel somewhere new. Or maybe you'll make it the year you save 10% of what you earn and learn how to cook an amazing meal at home. Whatever your list looks like, use your goal of crossing two items off your list as a way to guide you this year. It's an awesome way to practice self-love by creating a life you're head over heels in love with!
