The importance of self love

| 02/07/2015

When you are going through a difficult time, like when someone you love dies, it is so vital to do something to redress the balance to make life easier. Doing small, simple things to let yourself know, on some level, that you matter, make all the difference to your mood and your state of mind.

The thing is, it is so easy not to. I know that when I was in deep grief I wasn’t able to do the simplest of things, like get out of bed and get dressed or to eat nutritious food. I just didn’t care enough.

Even if you only do one self-love activity, no matter what it is, for just a few minutes every day, it will make a world of difference to you.

Some simple examples of self-love activities that my clients have used are: taking time to drink a cup of hot tea, sitting on the porch doing nothing, wrapped in her favourite shawl looking at the view, listening to a piece of music and dancing, reading a page of a novel instead of a self-help book, going for a walk at lunch time instead of sitting at a desk.

The possibilities are endless and as long as the activity is done with the intention of self-love, it will work. I can’t stress how powerful this simple idea is. I have seen people go from endless tears and pain to a much better stable place by simply adding one self-love activity to their day.

The best time to do this is first thing then it’s done. Otherwise the day runs away and you get to the end of it tired and ill inclined to do anything remotely helpful.

Remember it’s the intention that counts and makes the difference. Let me know what you do for self-love and how it has improved your life.

With love
