Three Little Ways to Say “I Love You” to Yourself Each Day
Thankfully we have reached a point in which we are all more open about our struggles. This vulnerability has also led to each of us realizing just how wide of a safety net we actually have, even in our darkest moments. As refreshing as it is to be able to be more open and to find comfort in those around us, we still must be able to take care of ourselves. The link between mental and physical health is inescapable; meaning to protect one is to protect the other.
Self care is a great way for you to take a moment to truly address yourself and show yourself radical, unconditional love. This isn’t about shutting down by binging shows and treating yourself. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. A daily self care routine is about prioritizing your health as a means of finding genuine stress-relief. Here are three ways you can say “I love you” to the person in the mirror.
You Don’t Have To Move Mountains
You don’t have to move mountains, you just need to move. It’s easy to become overwhelmed at the thought of a full exercise routine. The good news is that you don’t need one as a part of your daily self care routine. It can be as simple as stretching in the morning or a low impact walk around the neighborhood before taking on your day. Just the simple act of awakening your body and preparing it for the day ahead can help you clear your mind. This clarity puts you in the right headspace to seize the day. This is a great way to easily find some stress-relief without needing much spare time or exerting much energy.
Let It Out
Sometimes, we need to let everything that we have kept bottled up in a way that is healthy for both ourselves and our relationships. Journaling is a great way for us to check in with ourselves. The page is a safe place to share everything that we are carrying in our hearts. We can confide in it our fears and frustrations. Everything we need to make sense of before we can address them in our lives can find its way to our journals first. This allows us to gain perspective on both the good and the bad in our lives. Keeping a journal is a great method of self care because it helps heal our spirits and remember to love ourselves. This is a wonderful, inexpensive way to achieve stress-relief.
Affirm And Reaffirm
Taking a moment to repeat a set of affirmations is an excellent addition to a daily self care routine. It is a way for us to audibly remind ourselves of our worth and our strength. Hearing kind, empowering words come forth from your own being is the pinnacle of self care. We can speak our strength into existence through the use of intentional affirmations that build our self-esteem.
Take Care Of YOU
We all have such busy lives that taking a moment for self care can seem like a luxury. With so many people in our lives relying on us to be there for them, we often neglect our own need to be healed and empowered. We’ve outlined three simple ways for you to implement a daily self care routine so that you can handle the challenges thrown your way each day.
