Everyone has internal struggles at various points in their life with self-love and acceptance. The struggle is a part of the journey to work through what is causing our inner doubts about worthiness.
Our self-worth plays a huge role in our mental wellbeing and affects all of our experiences and endeavours. If we can place priority on accepting who we are – there can be a massive shift in all other areas of our lives.
Although it sounds simple, it can be a journey and can constantly shift out of place even when we thought we had truly accepted who we are. Being aware of self-worth and constantly working on it – is what’s key.
Tips for practising self-love
- Find respect for yourself
- Prioritise your needs
- Ask yourself “does this support the values I have and the life I want?”
- Remember, not all thoughts are true
- Celebrate your wins
- Don’t beat yourself up when you ‘fail’ at something
- Learn to be happy and proud of others’ achievements, without feeling jealousy or resentment
- You don’t need to change who you are to be accepted
- Don’t compare yourself to others on Social Media
- Let go of the past or things that make you feel less worthy
- Create a morning routine that sets up your day in a positive way
- Start journaling your goals, intentions and small wins
- Unfollow people who make you feel less worthy on Social Media
- Try meditating when your thoughts become overwhelming
- Practice positive self-affirmations before you start your day
- Surround yourself with people who lift you up
- When negative self-talk creeps in, acknowledge it, and disregard it, follow it up by finding something about yourself you love
