How to show love to yourself – A guide to self love

We all need to show ourselves some love from time to time to maintain a balance of our mind, body, and soul. Once these connections are understood and nurtured, you will find a peaceful mindset.

One thing that is important to remember first and foremost is that you are a valuable human being. You must genuinely believe that you can love yourself and that you deserve to receive love. Some people will find this to be a difficult hurdle to jump over, but it must be done to make positive steps forward.

Let us explore your mind, body, and soul:

  1. Your Mind. To show love to yourself you need to master your mind. This can prove to be one of the most difficult tasks. Negative thinking tends to creep up in some fashion every day and it is your job to combat this thinking pattern.
  • Personal Development. You will want to discover the power of positive thinking. There are many books and resources that can help you discover the “glass half full” mentality.
  • Relationships. Your relationships play a large role in how you judge your self-worth. Ensure that you surround yourself with positive people that nourish you and encourage you to be your authentic self.
  1. Your Body. Maintaining a healthy body is just as important as maintaining a healthy mind. When you concentrate on your health, you gain energy, focus, and happiness.
  • If you make a moderate exercise routine a part of your day, it could be enough to maintain a great body image. If you have weight to lose, you may wish to go through a more rigorous routine after talking with a healthcare professional.
  • Eating a healthy diet will energise you and make you feel great throughout the day. Strive to eat a balanced diet, but do not feel bad if you slip up occasionally. Remember none of us are perfect!
  1. Your Soul. Your soul or spirit is your life force. Your soul is where you find your peace especially when you find and live your life’s purpose.
  • Spirituality. Chances are your personal spiritual beliefs will address the questions and answers when it comes your soul. Practicing your spiritual beliefs will help strengthen your soul. If you do not consider yourself to be a spiritual or religious person you can still engage in activities that you find purposeful and peaceful.
  • Ikigai. This is often described as the thing that gets you jumping out of bed with excitement. When you discover your Ikigai you will have found out about your inner self and the importance of living your life on your terms.

 Hatha Yoga

One activity that has helped me and many of my personal growth coaching clients is Hatha Yoga. It is an ancient practice that connects the mind, body, and soul. During a yoga practice you will go through different poses, breathing and meditation exercises. You will more than likely experience an inner calm during this connection of the mind, body and soul. Which is an absolutely wonderful experience.

When you nurture your mind, body, and soul, you are showing yourself the deepest, most rewarding kind of love. Please take some time to love yourself!
