10 WAYS TO PRACTICE SELF LOVE

We all need to look after ourselves.
I know some of you are thinking- ‘I don’t have time for that’….oh yes you do.
I am pretty sure you can spare 5 minutes and devote it just to you.
Here are 10 ways you can apply a bit of self-love and it will make you feel so much better afterwards

  1. Grab a pen and some paper and write down 5 things that make you happy – then read them back and feel that smile on your face and in your heart,
  2. Listen to your favourite song, even put it on repeat if you like, sing along or dance. Enjoy how it makes you feel.
  3. Prepare your favourite meal/ snack. Have a little feast, It won’t hurt every once in a while.
  4. Light a candle, one with a scent that makes you go mmm. Get all nostalgic. Don’t forget to blow it out once you’re done.
  5. Pamper yourself by applying a face mask or painting your nails. One deserves a pampering every once in a while
  6. Read some of your favourite quotes – Make a board on Pinterest and keep adding to it. In times of need, they can be powerful.
  7. Put on an outfit that you love, or a colour that makes you feel good, or your favourite PJs.
  8. Do a quick yoga session or just sit in peace and meditate. Don’t think of anything in particular. Just be in the now.
  9. Make yourself a hot chocolate or a yummy smoothie and just enjoy.
  10. Soak in the bath or have a nice long shower and just appreciate the me time.

There you have it.

I hope you will take some of these and apply them to your day or week. You deserve it.

Allow yourself relaxation and above all else…Happiness.

A little more about me

In my first post here I wrote about the writer side of me and said I would touch on the pinkaholic side of me too at some point that’s where I got the blog name ‘Words of a pinkaholic ‘ from.

The first time I watched Legally blonde and saw Elle Woods all dressed in pink I was obsessed from then on. How pink made her feel I felt it too. Apart from she was just playing her part in a film. It was real life happiness for me.

When I heard the quote on another one of my favourite films of my teen years ‘On Wednesdays we wear pink’ I was like it doesn’t have to be a Wednesday to wear it bit loved the concept their clique had.

When I’m buying something I must own up that I do have a look if it comes in pink first before looking for it in another colour.

People who know me know me for my love of pink and being girly. I mean I’m not overpowering with it. For instance today I am wearing a black and white polka-dot dress with a pink Alice band.

Here’s a song to end today off with from the very talented Pink…

In my next post I’m gonna write all about the things that’s made me happy this July

Hope you’ve had a lovely week so far, I have but its been sooo hot here in England , too hot to enjoy it properly.

Do you feel that?

Put your hand on your chest

Do you feel that beat…the beat of your heart going boom boom boom.

This beat let’s you know that

  • You are still alive
  • You feel anxious
  • You are getting excited
  • You are in love

Three out of the four are really good things and one gives you the heads up when you’re not so good.

Next time you feel your heart beating… just observe and be mindful of it.

SHOW YOUR LOVELY FACE

For years i did this and it made me feel like i was a nobody i really didn’t feel like i was seen as someone special.

I hid myself, away from all the things i wanted to do, from all the opportunities, because i didn’t feel pretty or worthy of being loved. So in turn because of that i didn’t think others would want to appreciate me as a person,

How wrong was i?

Yes i had acne until my early 20s which at school got me beat up but in reality i shoudn’t let this dictate my days. i should be getting out there living this life i have been given. So with supportive people around me i found the courage.

The courage to work within the general public, where i was serving people every day, interacting and having people looking straight at me. As my confidence grew i put myself forward for jobs i had always wanted to do. It felt like a weight had been lifted

I lost the best part of my teenage years and the start of my 20s because i was so insecure. Fast forward 10 years i am a totally different person. The camera is my friend and i would rather be seen and heard than to shy away.

My advice is: TO BE BRAVE, BOLD AND FEAR NOTHING. YOU ARE AND ALWAYS WILL BE AMAZING

A TO Z OF ME

This is quite a fun little exercise to do and I had this in my notes section on my phone then I could add ones in and post it when I had the full alphabet.


So the aim of it is to be kind to yourself when using the descriptive words to describe yourself. It’s not that hard you just need to think a bit.


Here is what I came up with for me

I’d love to see some of you give this a go

Also i am new on this blog so woud love some new blogs to follow and to find likeminded people. So feel free to leave your blog address below.

TAKE A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

Sometimes you need to change things in order to be a happier you. If things aren’t feeling the way you envisioned then you know what you got to do…if you don’t here’s some points to take note of

  • More rest
  • More self love
  • More letting go of what was
  • More time for learning
  • More space for transformation
  • More time developing good habits
  • More courage to try new practices
  • More time cultivating your inner peace
  • More faith in yourself and the process

I myself have made plenty of changes over the last 6 months of 2021 and it feels so good

Don’t feel pressured to change by anyone else. Do it for you and you alone.

This is a glimpse of the things I will be including in my blog posts amongst personal bits and pieces. I’m a positive person and I love to help others too.
