Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I talk about body positivity, style, inspiration, social justice, and whatever the hell else is on my mind.

How do you LOVE yourself?

Today I ask the question, how do you love yourself?  Self-care is often so low on our list of priorities.  But as you well know, taking care of yourself first, allows you to help others in a more present way.  I take care of myself in various ways. Below is my self-love list. By no means is this a comprehensive list or things I do every day, but I do my best.

  • Taking quiet time in the morning to connect with my Higher Power.  It's a great way to start the day.
  • I love getting massages, and when I can afford it, I usually go for hour and half.  Then I go home and rest. I LOVE it!!
  • I make sure I feed my body healthy food (most of the time).
  • I dress in clothes that make me feel good and reflect my personality.
  • I say affirmations in the mirror so that they become second nature.
  • I ask for what I need.  If I need help or simply need to set boundaries, I express them with loving kindness.
  • I take care of my skin.  I make sure to clean my face and moisturize every morning and evening.
  • Laughing!  I love to laugh, and it's a wonderful way to de-stress at any time of the day.
  • I try not to take things too seriously.  I'm really working on this one ; )
  • I love getting manicures and pedicures.  I should do it more often.  
  • I try to be humble, honest, kind, forgiving and open.  It sets me free and boosts my self-esteem

Now it's your turn.  Let our readers know how you take care of yourself!
