Happy Monday Self-Love and Wellness Tribe!
I hope you had an awesome weekend and you’re staying warm!
One of the more common questions I get asked as a teacher and wellness coach is… What is the difference between Self-Care and Self-Love?
I usually ask my clients if they feel they are taking care of themselves. They often tell me YES. I ask them… How do you take time to Love Yourself?
I will typically get answers like:
I like to get my nails done. I like to take baths. I love to run. I love my yoga practice. I enjoy meditation. I keep my space really clean. I have paid off all my debt, and feel financially free. I pay my bills on time. I watch my nutrition. I spend time with my friends and family.
All the answers are awesome!! I find most people are practicing self-care physically, financially, spiritually, nutritionally, and even organizationally, but what they are forgetting is the emotional side of things. They are not loving themselves emotionally.
See, the problem is that a lot of people think that Self-Love is weird or sort of creepy. People feel that self-love is about arrogance or entitlement. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Self-Love is about unconditional compassion. Self-Love is about loving who you are, all of you… flaws, mistakes, and all!!
Ways to incorporate self-love into your life:
1) Be fully present in your body
2) Define your own worth
3) Take responsibility for your feelings and own it
4) Seek out spiritual connection
5) Make yourself a priority
6) Take action in your life… Loving yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually
Don’t forget to love yourself! Treat yourself with love and compassion always!
Have a kick butt week! Shake things up a bit… Try a new recipe, a different workout, or some meditation. See you on the flip side! Breathe well my friends!
Live Healthy, Feel Fearless, Be Free!
