Loving Yourself First This Valentine’s Day

loving yourself

Whether you’re single or in a relationship, ultimately you need to be loving yourself first. Celebrate the beauty of who you are, and what makes you, you…

Like I said in a previous post, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about spending it with our significant others (of a romantic nature). They can be spent with the girls, the guys or even alone.

Before I go any further, I wanted to state something very important: ‘being alone doesn’t mean lonely’… In fact, it just means people don’t have time for drama or toxic relations.

So, let’s look at ways you can start loving yourself this Valentine’s Day… What can you do for you?

Read self-help books

Self-help books are a great way to improve yourself. At the end of the day, no-body can help us if we’re not willing to be helped.

My recommendations would be Fearne Cotton’s Calm and Happy. These books helped me most because they’re written by someone I could relate to, and who isn’t a mental health professional.

Loving yourself begins when you decide to make a change.

Invest in yourself

Invest in yourself to better your life. Whether that means putting money aside each month for counselling, or virtual yoga or pilates classes, it’s worth it. Loving yourself comes at a cost, but make it worth your while!

Cut yourself some slack

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Understand that you’re a work in progress and don’t be afraid of failing/asking for help. Above all, be kinder to yourself.

Start by switching just three negative thoughts into positive ones. That’s how you change your mindset.
