Self Love Practices

For many people self-acceptance is hard to come by on a good day. It’s tenuous, a glass with tiny cracks, at best. On a bad day, when you’ve made a mistake or two, don’t like how you look or feel absolutely miserable, your self-acceptance is in shards.

Fortunately, self-acceptance is something we can nurture. Look at it as a skill that you can practice versus an innate trait that you either have or don’t. Here are few ways in which we can cultivate self-acceptance :

  • Write yourself a love letter.
  • Make a list of 10 things you’re grateful for.
  • Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers.
  • Re-read your favourite book.
  • Create a vision board for your dreams.
  • Have a pamper session and treat yourself to a manicure/pedicure.
  • Take a 30 minute walk in nature.
  • Take a long relaxing bubble bath.
  • Try relaxing yoga or an empowering workout.
  • Nourish your body with a healthy home cooked meal.
  • Create loving, positive affirmations for yourself.
  • Slow down, be present and mindful.
  • Make a list of 10 things you love about yourself.
  • Unplug for a whole day from any tech.
  • Meditate.

If you’re unconvinced that you’re a worthy person, keep the faith and keep at it. Keep practicing self-compassion along with the other suggestions. Most of us do not have direct communication from our deity of choice, yet we take the leap and trust that our God is true and real. The same goes for our self-acceptance. I first must think and do before I know.

  1. Your posts are very nice and helpful. I love the first point ‘write yourself a love letter’. It is truly the most effective action to generate self love. I also enjoyed the last lines. We trust God even though we can’t see god. Then we should also have faith in ourselves and in our ability to do things which are still unexplored. Thank you.. 🙂

    • Ah Faith is so important Sarthak. Have a Little Faith in Yourself Today. If you have faith, that means you have complete confidence or trust in something. You believe in a person or a thing without needing proof to validate your belief. For most of my life, I’ve felt that this is a dangerous position to put yourself in.

  2. What keeps me going is this saying” What good and perfect work he started in me, he will finish.” We have too look past this life, or we will end in utter defeat. So I cling to my hope.😊👍😎
