Love Yourself In 15 Different Ways!

Hello My Beauties!

On Valentine’s Day I made a video based off a post I read on 15 Ways To Love Yourself (click here to watch). Now, I didn’t finish all of the different activities, but the ones that I did do were kinda fun! Even though I didn’t really feel any significant change, I think the point of all of it was to just find creative ways to be alone and comfortable, which I always love doing!

Being an only child I’ve grown accustomed to spending hours by myself, so when I’m constantly surrounded by others, I find myself desperately searching for some alone time. Being alone allows you to clear your head, to review your stance on something, to reflect or compose yourself after a fight, and be able to just enjoy your own company.

You can never go wrong with a relaxing bath.

All-in-all I highly encourage you to spend at least 20 minutes doing something alone, whether that’s going for a hike, taking a drive, or listening to relaxing music on your yoga mat in the middle of your living room (me everyday).

It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you have fun doing it and you grow a little from the experience! If you want some inspiration, just search things to do by yourself or ways to love yourself. There are usually a lot of cool, sometimes pretty corny, ideas in those kinds of articles!

I also went on a hike in the freezing cold. I had a clear head and ten frozen toes by the end.

Even binge watching your favorite movies/TV shows is SO MUCH FUN! Call in sick, actually become physically ill (me), or find an afternoon to watch 2 or 3 of your most-loved films.

My favorite movies consisted of ones I hadn't watched in a while: Anastasia, How To Steal A Million, and Hercules.

And no one can complain if you go and treat yo’ self! Except maybe your wallet…

One thing that I’ve found really helps me is to go stargazing. Just the handful of visible stars in my neighborhood at night helps me feel grounded and all of the stress or nervousness of the day kinda melts away, leaving me feeling more connected with myself and the things around me.

I hope that you enjoyed this post and that you have taken something from it! I’m a firm believer of finding peace with your person. Not only does it feel amazing, it also comes in handy if you are in a bad place or if your having problems with others because you know your self-worth and that won’t change. At the end of the day all you have is yourself, so do things that make you happy and fulfilled.

15 Ways To Love Yourself!

Hello My Beauties!

Now, we all go through times of insecurities. Maybe your eyebrows are crooked and now you can’t stop looking at them? Or you’ve just found another pimple? Maybe you were just turned down for an interview, a job, or a date?

All of these things hurt us in different ways. To some they mean nothing, while to others they hurt like hell and create a lot of self doubt.

I always like to dress up when I’m feeling down. The only way to feel sexy is to look sexy, right? But sometimes it’s bigger than that. Sometimes that feeling just doesn’t go away and we feel more and more self-concious or inadequate.

I get it. I’ve been there many times. But you can’t let those negative feelings hold you down. That’s the opposite of progress guys, that’s not what we want right now. We want to kick those feelings in the ass! Make them our bitches (so to speak). You don’t deserve to feel bad about yourself, none of us do! We’re AMAZING!

Now that I’ve got you guys riled up with all those swear words, let’s move onto solving this problem.

I usually peruse the internet hunting for that one awesome article that will tell me how to feel better, and it usually works. This time I found an especially great one that I want to share with all of you!

Can you believe that all of that was leading up to a video?! Well, it was! Watch my video to see the 15 things that you can do to reconnect with yourself, and stay updated to see photos of me doing those exact things!

Also, if you EVER need anyone to talk to, I’m here to listen, advise, deliver revenge, etc, etc.
