Listen to “You’ve got to Love what’s Good for You”.
You don’t develop healthy habits overnight. Most people don’t get enough sleep or exercise, have poor diets, work in jobs they hate and go to great lengths to avoid spending any real time in their own company. The question is whether or not we can change.
Our habits and problems may not be supernatural, but making a change can certainly feel like a superhuman task.
Everything in your life stems from your relationship to yourself. You can make great progress by treating yourself as being someone who is intrinsically worthy of love.
By behaving in ways that signal that you are in fact an amazing human you’ll soon begin to feel like one.Learn to treat yourself with respect and compassion and you’ll find that your life will flow more easily.
At the end of the day, what matters most is that we’re learning to love what’s good for us and that we are creating a lifestyle which supports our greater wellness; both mentally and physically.
Self-love is dynamic and it grows through actions that mature us. Without action, self-love is simply a feeling comes and goes.
But remember, it takes practice and it won’t happen overnight.
Start by putting yourself at the top of your to-do list. Make time for self-care and do what makes you happy, not what makes others happy. Nobody wants to be selfish. Selfishness comes from a place of insecurity, fear, and a feeling that we need to gain from others for our lives to be worthwhile.
Don’t worry, there is a cure. The antidote to selfishness is self-love.
Ways to start loving yourself:
It’s okay to start small, and it’s okay to start from wherever you’re at. Just start where you can. Let one healthy habit build upon another.
You are the person who was with you from the very start, and you will be with you until the very end. So count the many ways you are special, and remind yourself every day why you matter.
