Hi there everyone, Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to my blog! So, it’s the day before Valentine’s Day so I thought it would be fitting to do a post about love today. But about loving yourself. Because I feel like in all the craziness of the world, people can forget (especially since Valentine’s is on a Monday this year.) So I’ll be sharing 3 simple ways to practice self love!
Just before we get into this, a quick note, self love means so many things to different people – so these are ideas that work for me. But feel free to do whatever you want!
Treat Yourself To Whatever Makes You Happy
I feel like I always talk about really easy ways to increase positivity. But sometimes, we just need a little treat to let yourself know you’re great and loved. So, if you don’t have a valentine – treating yourself is just as meaningful. Give yourself a treat to let yourself know you’re doing great (for me it would be chocolate!)
Surround Yourself With The People Who Make You Feel Happy
I think this is so key to self love. Because it’s not necessarily something you’re making yourself do to love yourself – it’s just natural to feel better with those who make you happy. Even if you don’t do an activity, being in their presence it’s a great start to loving yourself!
Write Yourself A Valentine
This is my favourite one so I saved it as the last one. It’s a little bit similar to the first one – but instead of treating yourself, you write to yourself!
- Essentially, draw a heart and write your name at the top.
- Then, write everything you love about yourself but in second person writing.
- For example, instead of putting ‘I love my confidence’ – you put ‘I love your confidence.’
It’s a quick thing to do to make us feel better. I know it may seem a bit weird, but it’s honestly just nice to acknowledge the things you love about yourself in a world with a lot of negativity!
Thank you so much for reading this post, I had a lot of fun coming up with these ideas. I really hope they were even slightly helpful. Let me know how you practice self love in the comments!
