Self-Love 101: Wellness Practices to Integrate Into Your Daily Life

Start your day with positive words and affirmations.

Practice self-talk where you replace negative thoughts with positive ones.

  • Be kind. You are worthy. Think about all your good aspects. What do you love about yourself? What do you appreciate about you?
  • Be grateful. Living life is wonderful. Recognize the things that you are truly grateful for. This will help you realize that good things are happening in your life and that you are truly blessed to live another day.
  • Choose positivity. Rid yourself of worries and self-doubt. They contribute nothing to your well-being. Always choose to see the good in everything — in yourself, in others, and even in random situations.

Take care of your body.

A healthy lifestyle is key to a happy and longer life.

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Eat right and on time.
  • Exercise.
  • Drink more water.

Surround yourself with love and encouragement.

Have you been hanging out with the right people?

Celebrate victories, whether big or small.

Give yourself credit. It takes a lot of effort and energy to be able to achieve something.

Lastly, build a constructive and positive mindset.

Creating a healthy state of mind and positive outlook in life is easy, you just need to believe in the power of manifestation. Essentially, it’s the act of feeling and claiming that something is yours (i.e., a healthy and positive mind).

  • “I can’t do it… at least, not yet.”
  • “This is tough, but I am tougher.
  • “What I’m doing isn’t working. Something needs to change. I need to change.”

Self-love is the most underrated form of love.

You need to learn how to love yourself before you can wholly and genuinely give your love to others. Love should start within ourselves.
