Say I-LOVE-MEPosted by Adela Plesnik Schicker
It's here again— another trip around the sun, another Valentine's Day. Before you get swept up in all the love in the air, we want to remind you of something important: perhaps the best place to start is by showing some love to yourself.
It's here again— another trip around the sun, another Valentine's Day. Before you get swept up in all the love in the air, we want to remind you of something important: perhaps the best place to start is by showing some love to yourself. After all, it's impossible to truly give love to others until we love ourselves first. So please take a moment to focus on self-love, and let us guide you with simple self-development techniques.
Take time each day to reflect on things you're grateful for. This can be anything from the people you love to the roof over your head. Focusing on the positive can help shift your mindset and boost your self-esteem. Get to know more about gratitude here.
Studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can reduce stress, improve emotional regulation, and increase self-awareness. Take a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness, focusing on your breathing and the present moment. For guided meditation, we recommend you to start with the app Headspace. Read more about mindfulness here.
Research has shown that journaling can improve mood, reduce stress, and increase self-reflection. Set aside time to reflect on your thoughts and emotions and write them down each day. This can help increase self-awareness and provide insight into personal growth.
Remember, the key to success with these techniques is consistency and patience. Give them a try and see how they can enhance your self-development journey.
If no one wishes you Happy Valentine's day, here is one big wish from us - always remember to put yourself first, keep developing and step out of your comfort zone as much as possible. Just for the fun of it.
