If you’ve subscribed to my mailing list then you would have been lucky enough to receive this list of self-love inspiration at the beginning of the month. But for those of you looking for ways to ‘treat yo self’ without spending a fortune, then I hope my ideas will enlighten you about the ways in which we can all take more time for ourselves.
1 > Book a date with yourself – whether it’s that long bath you’ve been promising yourself or just taking yourself for lunch.
2 > Write your future-self a love letter – that’s it, tell the future you how amazing you are, no negatives allowed.
3 > Massage your own feet before bed – it may sound bizarre, but it’s incredibly good for you.
4 > Make yourself something delicious – don’t sit there on your phone, enjoy each mouthful in its entirety.
5 > Take 5 – yes, even if it’s five minutes, find somewhere quiet and just sit in silence.
6 > Buy flowers – fill your home with something that lifts you up.
7 > Sing out loud – it feels good, and if you add some crazy moves, the silly joy will put a smile on your face.
8 > Stay off social media for a day – we can get a little too wrapped up in everyone else. So stay away from it for just one day.
9 > Get dressed-up – even if it’s to sit and watch a film in your own home. There’s something that feels great about putting on that sparkly dress.
10 > Plant something – gardening is such a therapeutic way of getting grounded. Plant something and realise just like that seed, we too need love and nourishment to grow.
Don’t pressure yourself to try them all this month, just pick at least one that will make you feel good. And if you know of anyone needing a little self-love this month forward to a friend and share the good vibes.
