Feeling the Self Love
With Valentine’s Day looming, this is the perfect time of year to talk about self-love and why it really matters. Dating, married, single or otherwise, looking after yourself is paramount, you are the most important person in your world, whether you believe it or not. It is time to take care of you. Here are some self-love tips to get you started.
Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to please all of the people in our lives. We are literally dizzy from trying to keep up with everything. This is emotionally exhausting, and if your heart sinks when you get a text or phone call because you know it’s someone asking for a favour then it is time to practise saying no. Thank the person for thinking of you, and then calmly decline. You do not have to justify your actions, you can just say I cannot do that for you at the moment.
Assign Everything a Priority
So, when you have practised saying no, you will be left with a list of things to do. Now you need to learn to prioritise that list. It doesn’t matter whether you are at home or work, you have a finite number of hours in which to do things. Making a priority list ensures that the important things are done when they need to be. Then if there is the time you can tackle the mid-range priority tasks. If you still find yourself able to do more the low priority list can be looked at, but if you do not, these are things that can wait until another day.
Take Time Out
It is essential to relax and do nothing. This can be tricky if you have a busy job, young children, and other commitments. However, it is vital, if not compulsory that you take a bit of time away once in a while. If you like a bath have a long soak, perhaps a little meditation or give yourself permission to just lounge around doing nothing. Maybe set up your room with low lighting, a spritz of Love Atmosphere Mist and your favourite relaxing tunes, good book, cup of tea and just switch off. Even if only for half an hour.
