Self-Love

Happy Valentine's day babes! However you celebrate it, whether it’s with your bf/gf, your gals, with a box of chocolates or my favorite way with a pint of ice cream and true crime podcast, I hope you have a gorgeous one! Today I wanted to talk about Self-love. Self-love is a popular term that gets mentioned a lot in conversations. "You have to love yourself." You can't love another person until you love yourself first." "Why don't you love yourself more?" Having Self-love is important to living well. You might not know it but Self-love influences many parts in your everyday life. It's so important to have Self-love, especially for your mental health and happiness. So today on the day of love, I wanted to share with you a few ways to practice and bring more Self-Love into your life!


The best way to bring some Self-love is by doing something you love. If this isn’t the ultimate self-esteem booster, I don’t know what is. Self-esteem and self-love are very closely connected, and it will bring out the best version of you. So if you love to dance, then play some music and dance! If you love to read, then start the new book you've been eyeing! If you're like me and love to bake, then bake a cake! Whatever it is just do it! I guarantee you will feel great at the end! 
Practicing self-care isn’t always easy. Most of us have busy schedules, with a stressful job and a family to support. Sometimes we feel guilty about taking the time to take care of ourselves but it's important to dedicate even 10 minutes for some self-care. Everyone has different ways of self-caring, my favorite thing to do is taking care of my skin by doing a mask. I love it and only take 10-15 minutes, Max! And the end not only do you feel great but your skin is also nourished. Remember, "You gotta nourish to flourish."
Self love meditation is a good thing for everyone. Taking time to meditate and to create positive feelings about yourself is incredibly important. I love to meditate and I tend to do it while I self-care. Whenever I'm doing a mask I unplug from everything and I center myself by meditating. I close my eyes and focus on my breathing, breathe in and out, deeper and deeper each time until I reach a state of peace and calm. Whenever I feel at peace I bring my attention to my heart and I listen. The heart is the key to life and it's important to be kind to your heart, so listen to your heart and love it!
Rose Quartz is referred to as the "Love Stone" because it helps with your Heart Chakra. It's often use for self-love, and healing/opening of the heart. Many people use rose quartz to learn how to unconditionally love themselves and others. I, myself own a few rose quartz but my favorite rose quartz is found on my ring. I wear this ring on my dominant hand and I will often breathe in and out, and I say out loud, “I choose love.” I say this to myself as many times as I have to, until I truly feel it. This will help you tap into your heart and it will remind you that self-love and love is the foundation for everything in life. Side note: Don't forget to occasionally do a spiritual cleansing of your stones, your place, and yourself.

Remember self-love is about becoming loving towards yourself. Self-love is about speaking to yourself in the most loving and kind way. Self-love is about treating yourself like you would treat a love one. Self-love is about forgiving yourself. Self-love is about actively listening to your own wants and needs.

What do you think about today's Self-love post, let me know in the comments below! I'm thinking of making more post dedicated to Self-love. Whether it’s how to dedicate few hours or a day for Self-love/care. I’m thinking once a month or every other month dedicating a post to things that make me feel good about myself, about my home, and about my life. So, who’s ready for more Self-love?! It’s time to love yo’self, babe!

What's your opinion?

  1. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I really enjoy posts like these it's always good to take a step back and remind yourself to love yourself. I really do look forward to reading more feel good posts about you, and I'm also obsessed with those photos you took of yourself. Kind of wondering why did you post more photos from this shoot because all the sneak peeks you sent me were gorgeous!♥
