Take Care of Yourself First

A MONTH OF SELF LOVE – DAY 5

Sorry, no video today. I had a touch of food poisoning last night and I decided that it was in my best interest not to force myself to do a video when I am not feeling at all well. (I’m practicing yesterday’s self love tip!)

Today’s self love tip is to “Pay it Forward with a Random Act of Kindness” What? You may be thinking that benefits others – exactly!! When we give to others, whether that’s a smile, a gift, a donation…. we feel good inside! I call it a DOUBLE BLESSING of LOVE! 

Let me know how doing these small practices works for you and please leave a comment below with other ways that you are practicing Self Love.

Blessings,
Stephanie

Self care is a powerful form of self love. When was the last time you got a hair cut or a mani-pedi? Or did something as simple as take a long, fabulous soak in the tub with a glass of wine?

A MONTH OF SELF LOVE – DAYs 10, 11 & 12

No question about it, my 3 day silent retreat was truly and act of self love for which I am most grateful. What are you grateful for? A beautiful practice is to begin and end your day with gratitude. Who can you reach out to and give thanks to for the difference they make in your life? And. if you find yourself judging someone, why not take a step back and choose to bless them with loving kindness?

Today’s self-love tip was inspired Dr. Christiane Northrup while I was watching a video she recently did to promote her new book,Making Life Easy”. Stop Worrying! Great advice, right? Just not so helpful in most cases!

Here’s a simple prayer/mantra that can help make a tremendous difference to your worry and anxiety levels. “Please heal my fear based thoughts.” (Be sure to watch the video – I go into a lot more detail about using this technique effectively!)

How well do you receive a compliment? Too often we deflect a compliment or immediately look for a way to reciprocate. Why not simply allow yourself to receive that compliment and just say “Thank You!”? Learning to receive graciously is a beautiful act of self-love!

Stay tuned!
