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.

HOW TO BOOST YOUR MOOD

Absolutely everybody gets a down day even the most happiest of people.

Nothing is wrong with looking for advice on how to find that smile again…I’ve done it myself in the past.

So I made this list back along in my journal and until now I didn’t think about sharing it with you.

  1. Grab a DVD (preferably a comedy) some snacks, a blanket and dim the lights.
  2. Light a scented candle, add some bubbles and jump in the tub.
  3. Make yourself an uplifting playlist of songs that make you smile for days when you need to turn to it.
  4. Phone a friend and arrange to meet up- tell them to bring laughter.
  5. Go shopping whether in town or online it is the best sort of therapy.
  6. Draw or write whichever you think your better at and let yourself get super creative.
  7. Go put on an item of clothing that brings you joy, in your fav colour preferably.
  8. Make your favourite meal / snack and really enjoy all the flavours
  9. Go for a walk, feel the fresh air hit your face and take in all the beautiful views you see.
  10. Give a hug to someone it’s so heartwarming and leaves you with that happy fuzzy feeling. You could be cheering up someone else in the process.

I hope my list helps in some way and if you ever feel sad know that I’m only a twitter message away.
