Life is short…eat dessert first!
In this article, we are going to share ways that you can be kind to yourself.
Being kind to yourself is important.
We have obligations, responsibilities and the entire world “tugging us in every direction” at times. If we are not kind to ourselves and give ourselves the attention and time that we deserve ……. we are absolutely no value to others.
You come first:
Have you ever been on an airplane? Have you ever listened to the flight attendants prior to your departure? They say, “If the oxygen masks are deployed, please assist yourself first and then assist children and other passengers. Why do they say this? Because if you can’t breath, you wont be able to help others. You come first.
What others have and what others are doing is not your concern
Stay in your lane. Our lives are not “races against humanity.”
Believe in yourself
If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. It takes time to make a dream a reality. The bigger the dream, the more time it takes. Know this!
We have all done things we are not proud of, or regret. Let it go. Forging others is easier than forgiving yourself, but you must forgive yourself.
Here are a few ideas to “tune out” the world:
- Go for a walk
- Keep a journal.
- Go out to eat
- Read a book.
- Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while.
- Do something creative (write, paint etc..)
- Go shopping and buy something nice for yourself
- Take a hot bath
- Let it go to voicemail.
- Say no – next time someone needs something from you
- Take a break.
- Listen to your favorite music.
- Get a pedicure or manicure (you too guys)
What do you do to tell yourself you are loved by you?
