How to Embark on a Journey of Self-love

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 

  1. Find respect for yourself 
  2. Prioritise your needs
  3. Ask yourself “does this support the values I have and the life I want?”
  4. Remember, not all thoughts are true
  5. Celebrate your wins 
  6. Don’t beat yourself up when you ‘fail’ at something 
  7. Learn to be happy and proud of others’ achievements, without feeling jealousy or resentment 
  8. You don’t need to change who you are to be accepted 
  9. Don’t compare yourself to others on Social Media
  10.  Let go of the past or things that make you feel less worthy 

Tangible ideas: 

  • 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
