It can be difficult to find the time to show yourself a little love when life gets busy, but it’s important to take time for yourself and have fun.
Here are 10 fun and simple ways you can show yourself some love:
- Let some fresh air in in the morning, find an uplifting playlist and turn it up!
- Try smiling every day (even if you don’t feel like it)
- Create a simple mission for yourself if you don’t feel like leaving the house, for example: I’m going to leave to get a croissant from that bakery I like.
- Build a den! Embrace your inner child and get cosy with blankets, duvets and a good movie.
- Join an online drawing, cooking or dancing class – learning new skills can help build your self-esteem.
- Eat some good quality, mood-boosting chocolate.
- Practise positive affirmations- stick them on your mirror so that you see them every day and reinforce positive thoughts.
- Dance! Release some endorphins by dancing to your favourite music.
- Buy yourself some fresh flowers and take the time to arrange them.
- Run a bubble bath with your favourite products.
