Loving yourself isn’t always easy but its necessary. We can be brutal to ourselves…our own worst critics. Let’s change that starting today! Don’t think self-love is some self-absorbed act. It’s not.

It’s about giving attention to your mind, body, and soul and nourishing yourself in ways you need it the most.

There are so many ways to practice self-love, and so many things to consider in the areas of emotional, mental, physical, social, and spiritual self-care. Self-care enhances and protects our health and wellbeing. Here is a list of unique activities to consider. I invite you to push past your comfort zone and try a new way of practicing self-love.
