2022 Goals… SELF LOVE IDEAS 🌷🌷

By Anika Khara

Ahh yes, you. Everyone reading this, You deserve a little reminder to take care of YOU. I’m gonna give you a few ideas to brush up on your self-love.

So here are a few reminders to make you understand how important is loving yourself and taking care of your self. They’re in no particular order. In fact, mix and match all you want, but don’t forget to take time for these imperial parts of living mindfully, happily and taking great care of YOU.

Yoga

(Or Pilates, Or gym, Or Walking, or some type of body, mind, spirit exercise.) The gym is great. Running, superb! I Personally take time to nurture my body with yoga and a strengthening, calming workout. The effect: My core is strong, so I feel great. And I get to melt away all the stress or thoughts that are not that great. And if I fall while practicing head stands, I fall. I’m reminded to simply lift myself back up. Yoga works for Self-Love.

Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a natural quality that we all have. It’s available to us in every moment if we take the time to appreciate it. When we practice mindfulness, we’re practicing the art of creating space for ourselves—space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions. This will make you become more aware of where you are and what you’re doing, without becoming overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around you

Read

I’m not talking about your emails, or your to-do list for the next day in bed at night. I’m talking about reading. (And not OK! Magazine.) I’m talking about investing in great books that build your sense of self, character, confidence, charisma and all the ways in which you can become a better you. The effect: You’re smarter and wiser. You begin using new words and feel refreshed and accomplished for completing each book.

Travel

I am talking about real travel. Its a beautiful gift you can give to yourself this new year. Personally I think something changes in me everytime I travel, a positive change.

I know it’s hard to plan travel for some people or for especially our busy Moms but, even if it’s just a walk to the park to sit on a bench, or even to try a new coffee. Do it!  The effect: Serenity. You get this sense of beauty and wonder when you’re sitting someplace different, watching others and enjoying some quiet time or even exploring new places.

Change something about yourself

Your earrings, shoes, your belt. Make it different. Stop the routine. Ok, routines are nice. I admit, but jazz it up and surprise yourself with something that sparks a new light on who you are. I coloured my hair a week ago. I found an image on Pinterest, brought it to the stylist at a salon and voila. I feel different, liberated and confident. Honestly, it sounds a little odd but trust me something changes by small changes. So, think about what you can change, because you deserve that spark. The effect: You’ll amaze yourself when you look in the mirror and realize how slight changes can lift your spirit and boost your energy levels.

Face your fears

It is human nature to avoid emotions that scare us.  Who wants to walk directly into what promises to be a painful experience? Except that by continually avoiding looking at the ‘inner you’ within, you become hostage to the monster. Typically this involves hiding from any potential stressor that might cause upset and engaging in endless distractions. Thus you are also hiding from potential challenges that can lead to growth and joy. Plus, you can’t hide forever from fear. It’s going to strike, despite your best efforts to suppress it. And it is likely that it will strike at a time when you most need emotional equanimity. Here are some tips on how to face your fears:

Become 1 with your flaws

Ah yes, the hardest one perhaps, but the most rewarding. Life is about loving the fall just as much as the rise. That’s what makes the end a journey, not a destination. The effect: You’ll enjoy being around yourself more when you can forgive yourself for messing up. You may even get a strut in your step. Forgiving yourself is even better at your work or your personal decisions. Hey… this is life. And you’re better for your mistakes. Who is perfect? Ah ha. No one…

There’s obviously a ton more self-love tips I could give as I live them daily such as Find Gratitude, Be grateful, Shop (Yes, I said it), Exfoliate, Eat healthy, Aromatherapy, Buy yourself A Gift, Enjoy Icecream, Get yourself a Coffee, Listen to your favourite song, Enjoy music, Sit in a garden, throw a rock in a pond, Enjoy a spa day, watch your favourite movie, express love, Sleep when needed and many more things can be done that make you feel happy. All of these things can equate to greater self-love and it’s so valuable that you find the time to nurture your soul. You’ll be even better in your personal and professional life, when you take the time to do the above and more.

Making resolutions is something we have been doing since years, keeping them or breaking them has also been a part of it ( yes we all break them) But, The Power of SELF LOVE is something which we all should start as its the only way to find a positive approach to love others too.

Lots of love and Happy New year
