Hey guys! SO you’ve probably seen/heard me mention my “Self-Love Practices” a few times lately.
I think that these three practices are necessary on a daily basis. So, I’ll get right into it.
1. Gratitude. I have started a Gratitude Journal. Every morning when I wake up, I start the day with a grateful heart and write at least one thing (in point form) in my journal. Sometimes it’s something simple like the sunshine or the rain, other days its a little deeper than this. Either way, connecting with positive energy first thing in the morning, starts every day right. 🙂
2. Personal Development. Read read read. I am not naturally a reader, however I have gotten in the habit of reading every morning and I’ve really grown to enjoy it! Every time I sit down with a book I learn something knew and my eyes are opened to a new concept or idea. Not only does this empower me, it improves my self-esteem. Pick a book that speaks to you and you’ll have no problem 🙂
3. Physical Wellness. This doesn’t mean you have to crush a HIIT session or pump some weights…I mean you can, but that’s not what this is about. This is about listening to your body and treating it well 🙂 Some days, I treat it to a yoga session, sometimes it is cardio, sometimes tabata, sometimes just a core workout and a walk…other times, I say fuck it and dance instead. The goal is to get moving every day, in whatever way your body wants and needs.
Committing time each day for these things, (ideally first thing in the morning) not only sets the day up for success, it starts each day with a happy, grateful Heart. I challenge you to try it, and share with me what you experience.
