With the social media boom, people became delusional about how they have to look and how quick they have to achieve their standards. All of these led to the loss of self-love and self-respect. To have a goal is great but to fail planning within a reasonable time-frame is a huge problem, which becomes the reason for hating and beating yourself up for unaccomplished tasks. So as a little challenge, I created a day of self-love, which will get you out of this vicious cycle of hating on yourself.
First, a little bit about why it is so important to love yourself. I believe living in alignment and balance leads to the accomplishment of your desires. A person cannot or will not lose weight if he/she hates everything about his/her body. The same with your job you will not likely get promoted if you are not in love with what you do and excited to over-deliver and learn more. Same goes for your relationships, if you are not in alignment with yourself, you will always be insecure and unhappy with the person next to you. So any area of your life takes its roots from self-love.
Second, practicing self-love is trully an art. It is quite challenging at first but the more you do, the better you get at it.
Easy Steps for Unconditional Self-Love
- Start eliminating words from your vocabulary which don’t show you in the best light.
- While standing next to the mirror, say 5 compliments what do you love about your body, appearance, and character.
- Make a reminder on your phone so every hour you consciously practice self-love.
Last but not least, after accomplishing full day of self-love, try to do it for the whole week. One day is just a small step to start the process. Let me know about your progress in the comments below. Would love to hear your wonderful stories.
