A few months back I wrote a blog post on the importance of self-love and ensuring that you create a good relationship with yourself. Today I would like to build up on that message and share with you guys some tips on how to improve your relationship with yourself.
- Practice Positive Self-talk: Take time out of every day to practice focussing on the things about you that you love. You can start by choosing three things (and this can be anything) that you love about yourself and you can either stand in front of a mirror and say them to yourself or write them down.
- Stop comparing yourself to others: This is a big one. One of my favourite quotes is that “we need to learn to admire the beauty of others, without calling our own into question.” By all means be inspired and motivated by others, but don’t allow their achievements to make you feel like you are not good enough. If following a particular page on social media is causing you to feel bad about yourself don’t follow it.
- Acceptance & change: There are certain things about ourselves that we need to learn to accept, by this I mean the things that you can’t change. For me this is my legs, I have always felt that they have been huge and have spent far too many years of my life trying to get them to appear smaller. The fact is that I can’t really change my legs much, so they’ve become something that I have learnt to love. However, self-love and wanting to improve yourself don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Making positive changes such as eating better, exercising more, doing more of the things that you love and surrounding yourself with people who lift you up all are things that you are able to do which can help you to improve the relationship you have with yourself.
