If you can’t love yourself, who can you love? While it’s noble to sacrifice yourself for others, you’re important too. When you make the effort to be kind to yourself, you’re in a better position to be kind to everyone else in your life. Let go of the idea that indulging yourself occasionally is selfish.
Give yourself the love you deserve with these strategies:
- Eat in a healthier manner. Few things can have more impact on your health, mood, and general state of well-being than your diet. What are you feeding yourself on a regular basis? You probably know what a healthy diet looks like. How are well are you following it?
- Drop two unhealthy foods that you eat on a regular basis and add two healthy foods. After that change feels permanent, repeat the process.
Ensure that you’re satisfying your own needs as you tend to the needs of others. Everyone is important, and that includes you, too. Give yourself the same priority you give to others in your life. Take the time to love yourself more.
