We spend so much time worrying about paying the bills, working hard and helping others that we often neglect to take care of ourselves. Taking time out to take care of yourself will not only make you feel happier but also improves your life in all areas.
So we’ve put together a few simple ways that you can start being kinder to yourself.
Sometimes we can be our own harshest critic. That voice inside our heads reminds us that we’re simply not good enough. So taking time out every day to genuinley compliment yourself can reverse that cycle.
Become your own best cheerleader with personalaffirmations and start the day, looking in the mirror and saying “Hey You, I got your back and you’re awesome.” When we start complimenting ourselves rather than complaining about ourselves, it not only helps us to become more positive, it also has an impact on those close to us.
Do you often look at your “To Do List” and focus on what you haven’t done rather than what you have done ? Instead of crossing things off that you have completed, so you only see what’s left to do, try highlighting your completed tasks instead.
That way, they stand out and you can actually see what has been achieved. Give yourself credit for getting things done and treat yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything big or extravagant but a small reward every now and then goes a very long way.
We spend so much time juggling work, home, family, social life and general day-to-day tasks and chores that we juggle work, our social life, and chores that we rarely have time to focus solely on our own well-being.
So whether you do it once a week, once a month or once every 6 weeks, just set aside a day complete for YOU.
Take the day off and go for a long walk, prepare your favourite meal, go on a self-date, lounge around the house in your PJ’sor go to a spa and get a massage. Any of these will leave you feeling refreshed and positive.
One of the main reasons we’re not that kind to ouselves is that we often find it difficult to let go of things that might have happened in the past.
We’re constantly beating ourselves up and trying to “make up” for it and this leads us to being less than kind to ourselves. We all make mistakes and nobody is perfect so stop punishing youself. remember that no one is perfect.
Find a way to forgive yourself and see the lesson in things. After all, life isallabout learning and those mistakes give us an opportunity to grow into better people.
Being kind to yourself means taking good care of your own health and well being because nobody else is going to do it for us.
Your body is pretty amazing and does some truly special things so respect it. Acknowledge it.
And treat it like you would treat somebody you truly loved. .Make sure you sleep well, eat good food and stay active.
Remember, we only get ONE shot at life this time around so be thankful for the opportunity we all have and make the most of it. You’ll feel better mentally by taking good care of your physical health.
So there you have our suggestions.
