Self-love is important for our well-being. You can barely influence if other people like you. But you can give yourself the self-esteem that you deserve. Here you will find out how.
Tip 1: Within perfection against self-criticism:
Sometimes a little trick helps with the capacity for self-acceptance. You are one of those people who always have to leave the house in style? In which the eyeliner perfectly sit and every little detail must have on the outfit? A first step may be for you to do this stress no more.
Try it out that your self-esteem does not depend on a perfect look. You will probably be surprised that other people will not even notice your supposedly imperfect style.
Tip 2: Do something good for yourself:
When was the last time you indulged in pampering and relaxing bath? For yourself a menu of several courses cooked with your favorite foods? The favorite movie from the drawer raided or spent a day in pajamas between the sofa and TV?
Self-acceptance has a lot to do with being good with oneself. This includes self-compassion. You had a lot of stress on the job, bad luck with a new love or a disappointment in the family or circle of friends?
Do not think that you are worthless. Do good and be mindful with you, to make you feel better soon.
Tip 3: Are you your best friend?
What do you expect from a real friend or best friend? You should always be there for you, support you, take you and your problems seriously and be interested in your well-being?
In short, they should show that you are close to their hearts. Do you handle yourself and live according to your needs? Start today to become your best friend and listen with mindfulness to what you need right now. Self-esteem begins the moment you give yourself that value.
Tip 4: Put praise and appreciation into your life:
Recognition is an important part of life. But you should not be dependent on the recognition that other people give you. You can become much happier if you reward yourself and give the appreciation you deserve if you have achieved something great or have done something that you were afraid of in advance.
Self-love also has a lot to do with acknowledging what you do in your life.
Tip 5: Being good? No one-way street in your life:
How many times have you been there for friends? How many times have you carried your neighbor’s bag to the fifth floor? How often did your mother file a tax return or do you do an unpleasant job for her colleague in the office?
Now it is your turn. Self-love also means to ask other people for help and, what many people cannot, to be able to accept this help. Therefore, self-compassion also means that you acknowledge that you should receive support from someone close to you.
Important: It does not matter if you keep all these tips or focus on one. You are the designer of your future life and decide what is good for you.
Self-love also means that you decide with mindfulness which of these tips suits you and which not.
