You cannot love others without loving yourself first. Think about the last time you had a bad day or woke up cranky; how did you treat the people around you? The energy we give, is often the energy we get.
Just like any other part of our life, self love takes time and effort. Just like sleep, exercise, and food, it is a healthy life essential. Self love is important because it:
- Restores our physical and mental energy
- Builds confidence
- Realigns us to our life purpose
- Enables us to love others
- Builds patience and understanding
- Manifests gratitude and happiness
- Grounds us
There are simple ways to add more self love time into your life. Take a little time for yourself each day to worship and nourish your inner Goddess. Asides from adorning your outer Goddess, think about what makes you feel good from the inside out. Meditation, reading, yoga, a bubble bath, going for a nature walk, listening to some positive affirmations and repeating in a mirror are just some ideas.
