To all my singles or coupled people out there just wanted to wish a lovely valentines day. May it be filled with love & joy! And to all also always keep in mind to love yourself and take care of you! That is very important because if we do not love ourselves how can we expect someone else to love us?
It is a very important question.
One thing that has helped me a lot to love myself has been meditation, exercise, and letting go of things that no longer serve a purpose.
Currently in my headspace app I am at the stage where I can pick the packages I want to focus on. I am currently on level 2 of the self esteem one. I can attest that it has been very helpful. I do not know if you can relate but sometimes I have an inner voice that wakes up some doubt in me. This package has helped me to let go of the voice, not quiet it nor leave it behind, but rather to identify it as just a thought or a feeling and move on. Not trying to understand why is there or what does it mean rather just identify it as either a feeling or a thought and continue on! Which has been key! So to all of you out there I highly recommend taking the time and starting on meditation.
Another aspect to improve your self esteem is the acceptance of who you are. Respect of who you are. And valorization of who you are. With that in mind you will always value yourself and let go of things that do not appreciate you or respect you! Therefore letting go of anything that does not bring you peace or leaves you drained or doubtful of your worth or who you are!
Working out has also helped me a lot! Just the release of any tension or conflict you may be going through can be let go by a good work out! I love doing yoga, pilates, & weight lifting. I miss my cardio ( I used to run a lot but always ended up with back & knee pain so it no longer served a purpose) instead I am trying to walk more to get that cardio take but with those 3 I swear if I am grumpy in the morning, which I tend to be, post work out I have a clear mind and I’m more at peace plus less grumpy! Follow it with 10 minutes of meditation and a wonderful shower and you are off to a good start!
So on this day not only love others but most importantly love YOU, as that love will flourish to others!
