At the start of every flight, the stewardess always announces the emergency procedures and reminds you to put your own oxygen mask on yourself before helping anyone around you. This is to ensure your own health and safety before you can have the capacity to help those around you. If you fail to put your own oxygen on and pass out, no one around you can benefit or be helped.
I like to apply the same principle to my own personal life. In order for me to be the best version of myself, to give and love at my greatest capacity, I have to first love and care for myself.
Today I wanted to share some ways to love yourself because YOU deserve love!
1. Recognize your limitations. You can't do it all and that's okay. Focus on what can be realistically achieved and put your effort into that. Knowing when to say no is also a big part of knowing your limitations.
2. Celebrate your strengths. Make a list of your positive qualities and celebrate them. It's important to recognize what you're good at rather than always focusing on what you want to change about yourself.
3. Stop comparing yourself to others. I think this is a big thing for many women and it's a major no-no! If you're constantly in competition or comparing yourself to others, it's easy to get down on what you aren't accomplishing in your own life. Rather, be inspired by those around you and be grateful for what you do have.
4. Take time each day, even if it's a small amount of time, to do one thing for yourself that makes you happy. Maybe that's having a cup of tea and reading for 30 minutes or watching an episode of your favorite TV show. It's important to make time for yourself, no matter how busy your day can be. You will feel a lot better if you have a few moments to indulge in what makes you happy.
