Introducing 3 Life Hacks To Jump Start Your Self Love.
In my opinion, self-care is not a routinely used word or practiced. As a mom, wife, and entrepreneur I’ve put myself on the bottom of the list far too long. A list so long I’ve forgotten who I am! Thankfully I’ve been taking some of the advice you will find below from a talented writer named Emily.
She writes self-care and self-love have been popular topics of discussion. They circle around perceiving your body as a product of your history and how you should begin to appreciate that! There is nothing wrong with any type of body or even one that has been changing over time. However, many thoughts and opinions have been floating around how to begin this practice. As someone who has recently transitioned into a lifestyle full of self-appreciation, these are my three hacks on how to get started.
Hack #1 Surround yourself with positive people.
It has been shown in recent studies that the closest relationships in our life significantly influence our mental and physical health. They can promote longevity and change our mindsets about ourselves completely. When adults have close, nurturing friendships, they’re more likely to live longer lives. The effect of these connections is 2x stronger than exercising. This is even equal to quitting smoking! Surrounding yourself with self-disciplined people will boost your willpower and motivation to maintain healthy habits and achieve your goals. Finding that perfect #GirlSquad will jumpstart you into a life full of self-love!
Hack #2 Invest in clothes that make you feel comfortable and confident.
Making sure you feel comfortable throughout all aspects of your life is extremely important. For me, when I am feeling confident in what I am wearing, I am instantly ready to kick the day’s ass! This little investment in yourself can go a long way. True & Co., a company who offers bras that are so comfortable and sexy has a mission to make every woman feel confident in their own skin. Fabletics is another great company I follow. Their insane variety of leggings are known to boost your confidence at the gym. With these simple changes to your wardrobe, your overall spirit will skyrocket!
Hack #3 Write down positive affirmations about yourself.
Focusing on the things you want to change about your appearance is something that is very easy to slip into, and we all do it! It becomes easy to forget the things we love about ourselves. A simple solution to always keep in mind is to sit and physically write down positive affirmations. We put our body through hell and back (long days at work, struggling to find time to work out, and missing those healthy meals), and hey it’s still here, serving us and looking pretty damn good doing so! These affirmations with provide you with a fresh, written down reminder on why you are so amazing! Self-hate can actually destroy our overall well being if we’re always listening to our “bully voice.” Flip that thought around and we can thrive on our own self-love.
Our bodies ultimately reflect all the amazing things we have done in our lives. And that is beautiful! Being your true, authentic self-requires a lot of bravery. And when you begin to show the world that you love that version of you, it becomes necessary to use even more courage. When combining a great support system, self-confidence, and constant reminders of greatness, you’ll be able to transform your life into one that is so full of love you can’t remember when it didn’t!
