We often hear the phrase “Love yourself” and we say, that’s basic. That’s automatic. You don’t have to be told to love yourself or to be taught how.
But, do we really do it?
Loving yourself means taking care of yourself in every way. It means always striving to be better than the person you were yesterday.
Here are 10 ways to become a better you:
1. Get lots of rest.
Working hard has it’s rewards but don’t let yourself get overworked. Learn to prioritize so that you will not be behind your schedule and compromise yourself. You need 6-8 hours of sleep every day. Don’t abuse your health by staying up late doing nothing important or sweating the small stuff.
2. Invest your money.
Because even though you’re well off now, doesn’t mean it will always be that way. Things happen and if and when they do, you want to be prepared for whatever life throws your way.
3. Remove toxic people from your life.
Toxic people whether we want to believe it or not, effect our well being. They drain us emotionally and sometimes emotional abuse effects our physical well being as well.
4. Guard your heart.
When you know better, you do better. We all have to take responsibility for our bad choices. By continuing to hold on to someone you know is bad for you, you only prolong the right person from coming into your life.
5. Make the right choice.
Always choose good over bad… right over wrong
Select the healthier option when deciding what to eat.
Always think about the consequences of your actions.
6. Encourage yourself.
Zig Ziglar said, “Motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily”. Listen to podcast of motivation speakers, watch inspiring videos, join groups on social media or in your area that advocate on encouraging people and bringing out the best in you.
7. Laugh hard and laugh often.
Here’s another quote: “Laughter is the best medicine”. Studies back this up by showing the benefits of laughter in our body. Watch comedy films, read funny books, hang out with funny people.
8. Do more of what makes you happy.
Make more time for your passion as it fires you up like no other.
9. Listen to what your body is telling you.
If you’re tired, rest.
If you’re hurt, cry and don’t hold back.
If you’re bothered, deal with your issue.
10. Worship more.
Worshiping can nourish the soul. When you nourish your soul, beautiful things happen in your life..
Love yourself. There will only ever be one you.
Learn to love yourself selflessly so you can share this love to the world, because you cannot give what you do not have.
