6 Steps To Self-love

Self-love is important to us as humans; it guarantees a healthy life and influences all choices we make in life.

Below are some steps to self love:


Have the same kindness you have for others for yourself. You deserve to treat yourself the way you treat others. Never be harsh to yourself, no matter what. Take yourself out because you deserve it, one step to self love is being kind to yourself.


Pay attention to yourself

Adopt a mindful attitude in which you deliberately pay attention to your inner feelings so that you can notice when you are beginning to shift into a negative state. The minute you realize that you are thinking negative thoughts about yourself or feeling anxiety in your body, stop and examine yourself.

Know you are not messed up

It is tempting to think that you are uniquely messed up, while everyone else is a paragon of virtue. You need to know even the most successful people make serious mistakes. Making a mistake does not undo all of your accomplishments and successes. We are all works in progress.

Learn to forgive yourself

Whatever happens, always learn to forgive yourself. If you hurt yourself through addictive behavior, avoidance, ruining relationships, or otherwise behaving unwisely, make a coping plan for the next time you are in a similar situation so that you can begin to act differently.

Set boundaries

You will love yourself more when you set limits or say no things or humans that harm you physically, emotionally and spiritually, or express poorly who you are.

Be focused

You love yourself when you can turn away from things that feel exciting to what you need to stay strong, centered, and moving forward in your life, instead. By staying focused on what you need, you turn away from behavior patterns that keep you stuck in the past, and lessen self-love.
