Being your own Valentine

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we’re all scrambling to get our loved ones mementos to show them our love. One thing that we should not forget this season of love, though, is to show some love to the most important person in our lives – ourselves!

Self-love is one of the most challenging goals to reach but with small steps, its totally achievable. And what better time to take care of yourself than Valentine’s Day, the day of love? Here’s some quick ways to reinforce the self-love this week.

Accept your flaws. – Everyday each of us messes up. That’s alright, we are only human. Go ahead and give yourself some love by being forgiving of yourself when you mess up. Instead of taking a negative position on the matter, encourage yourself to do better next time.

Take a bath. – Or an extra long shower or just sit in the sauna at the gym. You deserve to relax, especially after all the hard work you put in at work and at home every day. Taking the time to pamper yourself can really improve your mood and view of yourself.

Chocolate (in moderation). – Not just chocolate, but any kind of small savory treat is alright every once in a while. As long as it is in moderation, treating yourself is always a great way to reward yourself for being exactly the way you are.

Spend quality time with your loved ones. – Surrounding yourself with positive people and people you care about a lot is a great way to build up your own self-respect and self-worth. Hanging out with your family or other loved ones not only allows you to positively influence their lives, but they can positively influence yours too.

Dress up. – Dressing for success is a real thing. When you take the time to wear your favorite shirt with a pair of shoes you like or do your hair the way you think is best, it helps build your self-confidence. Feeling like you look good on a daily basis can help you keep you chin up and ultimately boost your self-esteem.
