While putting on a face mask and watching your favourite show on Netflix IS definitely self-love, we think it goes a little deeper than that. To us, self-love is more about listening to your intuition than following a specific skincare or workout routine.
Because we all go through so many different phases, nourishing and loving ourselves is going to look different during each moment. One of the ultimate acts of self-love is to be in tune with your body and know and understand that it is okay to do whatever is going to serve you best at that moment.
Throughout February we’ll be celebrating all things self-love, and we invite you to join us! To help you get started, here is our guide to self-love!
Setting meaningful intentions is a powerful tool in your self-love toolkit. It’s the first step to embodying what you truly want and bringing these things into your reality. To help you along your self-love journey we’ve created a free intention setting guide that you can use now, and refer back to whenever your soul may need it.
So get comfy, sit down with yourself and set some intentions for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world.
Practising Self Love
Now that you’ve set your intentions, here are some simple self-love practises that you can bring into each day to fill up your cup and be the best version of yourself:
Check-in with yourself
It’s so important to check in with yourself daily. This looks different for each person. For you it might be through meditation, getting out in nature or taking time out to journal your feelings and express gratitude for the beautiful things, moments, and people in your life.
Keep active, but make it guilt-free. The trick here is to keep moving daily but to do it intuitively. Don’t feel guilty for not going to the gym or waking up early and going for a 10km walk. Ask yourself what type of movement your body is craving and what is going to serve you the most at this particular time. Get those endorphins pumping!
You know what they say, there’s no time like the present. It’s cliche, but it’s true. In our busy lives, it's easy to get overwhelmed with daily tasks and obsessive thoughts about the past or the future. Constantly living with our minds elsewhere forbids us from living in the current moment and enjoying all of the beautiful gifts that life is delivering us NOW.
