Why do you need Self-Love?

The term “self-love” has been tossed around in the past few years. While many people understand its benefits, not many understand what it means. Unfortunately, people only see the surface of self-love but don’t necessarily dig deeper into its purpose.

Self-love is a true appreciation of oneself. With this, you are intentional with what you do for your physical, psychological, and spiritual growth. When you practice self-love, you’re taking care of your needs while not sacrificing your well-being to cater to or to please others. So, in essence, self-love pushes you to never settle for less than what you deserve.

Seeing as self-love can be a pretty complex and difficult for some people, many obtain life coaching services to help them navigate the complexities of creating a self-love practice. While self-love can mean differently for many people, you’re probably here wondering how it could help you. If that’s the case, keep reading. In this article, we’ll dig deeper into self-
love—what it is and why you need it.

What Does Self-Love Look Like?
Self-love is not only a strong belief in yourself but also the foundation of healthy self-esteem. Here are some ways self-love looks like:

● Talk to yourself with love and compassion
● Putting yourself first and prioritizing your needs
● Reducing self-judgment
● Trusting yourself more
● Being gentle with yourself
● Setting healthy boundaries
Forgiving yourself

While it seems pretty straightforward, there are many things you need to do to truly practice self-love:
● You need to listen to your body
● Take breaks and breathe
● Disconnecting to be creative
● Eating healthy
● Being more mindful

Why Should I Practice Self-Love?

● To be more mindful: Becoming more mindful will help you become more aware of your thoughts and emotions. With this awareness, you become better equipped to deal with your feelings especially during challenging times.
● To take actions based on your values, not on others’ expectations: This will enable you to take action and make decisions based on what is best for you.
● To make room for healthier habits: By practicing self-love, you are creating healthy habits that will help you feel and look your best.
● To reduce stress: When you aren’t constantly worrying about others and putting your needs last, you become less stressed and more relaxed.
● To improve your emotional resilience: Self-love helps you become more aware of the emotions you are feeling by learning how to deal with them.
● To improve your relationships: In essence, you become a better version of yourself. When you understand yourself better, you can love others better. People around you will definitely notice it.

There is no denying the need to love yourself and have a healthy self-esteem. When you do, you are more aware of your emotional health. This helps you become more tolerant and compassionate towards others. While self-love can be a tough pill to swallow at first, it will get easier and easier to practice with time. Similar to any other skill, self-love can be learned and practiced and improved.
