Tips On How To Love Yourself

Take selfies as selfies are fun and memories you can look back on hehe :) 
Hello Everyone and Happy Valentines Day! Today is all about spending the day with your boyfriend/girlfriend or your family and friends. Whatever you're doing, I hope your all having a lovely day! I thought I'd write a post on self love today though as it's so so so important to love yourself and being comfortable in your own skin. I'm someone that struggles with confidence and low self esteem but recently I set myself a goal to become more confident and love myself!
Here are a few tips I picked up along the way on my journey of self love!

Think positive - This is such an important tip and probably the most difficult one to stick to. It's hard to keep positive, especially when it comes to yourself and body image. Both me and Leah are still in recovery from our eating disorders so being positive is key to recovery. We all have our bad days but everyday look into the mirror tell yourself your beautiful, that your strong and that you can get through this because it's true and you can!

Be kind to others and yourself - Being kind always makes me feel so much better about myself. Just giving people compliments can brighten your day and other peoples days. Kindness is also contagious ;) Also, be kind to yourself by relaxing and pampering yourself.

Pilates/Yoga - This may not be for everyone but I bloody love doing yoga and I have recently discovered pilates! It's hard work alright but you just feel amazing afterwards! There are so many videos on YouTube that you can exercise along with and that makes it super easy to get the best out of your exercise routine. Remember to exhale and inhale and keeping your breathing steady as it's such a stress reliever!

Meditation - Inhale the goodness and exhale the bad vibes. Just closing your eyes and deep breathing, thinking of a happy place and doing a few stretches is so peaceful. I recently found BohoBeautiful's YouTube channel and she has some really amazing meditation videos!

Eat a balanced diet - I'm sick of all these vegan diets and fad diets! There is nothing wrong with having a few days just eating whatever the hell you want! Also remember that eating healthy can be fun too! I love eating recipes from Joe Wicks cooking books and making homemade soups, banana breads and smoothies. Eat the way that makes you happy! Balanced is the way ;)

Write - Writing down whatever is on your mind is also a big tip that I can't recommend enough! Just venting and getting it all off your chest is a life saver! Talking about your problems help too.

Do things that make you happy - Shopping is therapy! Draw, play music, play an instrument, bake, take your dog on a walk, exercise, pamper, watch movies, just do whatever makes you happy!

Remember you are beautiful!
