New Year New you. Right?
Whether you choose to make New Year resolutions, Set Goals or choose a word for the year, January can feel like a new beginning - ripe with possibility and opportunity. However, one thing we should all add to our list is to love ourselves wherever we are in our life.
Trying to be perfect,
Trying to be someone other than yourself,
Holding on to the past,
Living in the future,
Being so hard on yourself!
Seize the opportunity of the coming year by taking positive steps towards self-love and self-care.
Set aside some 'me' time
In a day, set aside some time that is solely for you even if it is only 10 minutes. Starting will make you want it more. Use this time to do things that make you happy and that you want to do. We have to set time aside for the things we care about, we have to prioritise them.
Reduce stress and overwhelm. It one of the strongest acts of self-love. Simplify your ‘to-do’ and ‘to-be’ lists. Say ‘No’ more often. Remember when you say no to something, you say yes to something else.
Do away with the clutter
Relieve yourself of all the unnecessary stuff you are hanging to – both physical and emotional – let go of past careers, relationships, objects you no longer need or use. Reorganise your wardrobe, your spare room, your to do list. There is a huge power in letting things.
Remember every day is a new day
Bury the past, practice being present and look forward to the future you want without stress. Focus your attention on what is good and what is working now. Ditch Social Media. No one lives an Insta life.
Make plans, dream and introspect.
