Fitting Self Love Into Your Busy Schedule!
Fitting self love into your busy schedule is the greatest gift you can do and give to yourself. When you have experienced this omnipotent energy, you’ll begin to love yourself unconditionally through every stage of your life and feel a peace that transcends.
Black Beauty and self-love have become mainstream conversation where women are concerned, in learning how to carve out time for themselves. In my opinion this needs to extend to everyone, all human being, binary and non-binary.
Its one of the simplest ways to create a world in which humanity is compassionate, accepting of self and each other.
Give me a minute so I can explain how to implement this treasure of a practice, that is self-love.
Even with a busy schedule, you can find time to fit in self-love throughout the day, and it's imperative that you do.
All aspects of self love, including physical, emotional, and social, contribute to your overall wellbeing. Having an understanding that this this power loves you and wants to see you survive strengthen you to decrease stress, lessen your anxiety, and increases your feelings of happiness.
Self Love Tips For Your Busy Schedule
I propose we, you and I both, practice these few practical steps on building self-love into your busy schedule:
- Take care of your body: Exercising and eating healthy is not just something we do to prevent illness -- it's an integral part of your self love routine. Treat your body right by feeding it nutritious and delicious food, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep at night.
Get outside for some fresh air every day, even for just a few minutes. If you can take your exercise outdoors, even better! Taking care of your physical body also improves your mental wellbeing — so it'll be worthwhile for you to emphasize getting this onto your daily schedule.
- Speak kindly to yourself: Aaagh this I definitely do, and it feels so good. Good Morning Gorgeous – Mary J. Blige new song, a theme for me. Praise yourself a lot by becoming your own cheerleader.
The same way you compliment your loved ones, start complimenting yourself, too. The words we speak to ourselves hold so much value, and it's essential that we speak kindly. You can do this by taking notice of your mental self-talk throughout the day.
In what ways can you flip any negative self-talk into something positive? Are there recurring negative thoughts or patterns you notice? We can be our own worst critics, so it'll take practice, but putting effort into giving ourselves grace and understanding while treating ourselves kindly and with compassion will make a tremendous impact on your health and outlook.
- Make time for yourself: It's so easy to get caught up with deadlines and work-life that we forget to prioritize ourselves and do things we love. Schedule some time for yourself and make sure you're doing something you love each day.
Keep up with your hobbies, pamper yourself, or relax by watching a movie — do whatever it is that makes you happy, just make sure you do it! If you have a jam-packed schedule, start by scheduling just 5-10 minutes per day. Starting small is better than waiting for the perfect time.
- Do the difficult tasks: Sometimes, self-care and self love aren't as pretty as face masks and movie nights. If you have a task that's been looming over your head for weeks, get it done.
If you need to do some difficult self-reflection, re-build or end relationships, study, or pay bills, do it. It might not be fun or easy, but you will feel so much better afterward.
These to-do's lingering on our list weigh on us, so do yourself a favor and release yourself from those tasks by checking them off your list.
- Build a positive social circle: Surround yourself with supportive people who want to see you do well in life. Building your social life can increase feelings of purpose and your sense of belonging. So make time for friends and family, build a weekly lunch date into your schedule (even if it's virtual), and prioritize connecting with others.
Louise Hay Rules On Loving Yourself
Louise L. Hay was an international renowned author and lecturer said, "If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed." She explains how limiting beliefs and ideas are often the cause of illness.
Here are some of her thoughts from her book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’:
- Taking Care of Your Body: Before you eat, ask yourself, what am I hungry for? It may be food or an emotional need. Give attention to what energizes your body and learn about good nutrition.
- Be Patient, Kind and Gentle with Yourself: Don’t expect yourself to learn it all in one day. You are doing the best you can with the understanding and awareness that you have right now. Self-compassion is key.
- Praise Yourself, A lot: This I do daily to bolster my confidence. Become your own cheerleader. If you can find more persons to add to your squad, even better!
“I am loved, and I am at peace. My happy thoughts help create my healthy body. Life supports me in every possible way. My day begins and ends with gratitude. I listen with love to my body's messages.”
- Louise Hay
