Learn to LOVE Yourself!

Posted by healthylivingtoday on February 5, 2008

Do you get down on yourself? Worry that your abs aren’t tight enough, your teeth aren’t white enough or maybe your co-worker doesn’t like you? Then it is time to start loving yourself!

Don’t worry about how others see you or what they may or may not think of you. We know . . . easier said than done – but there are ways to overcome this. One way of stopping yourself from doing this is to try and focus on other people instead. If you take an active interest in other people, you won’t have time to worry about what they are thinking about you. Not only will you not be worrying about what they are thinking, but if you are asking questions and listening to their answers, they will be flattered by your interest and probably be thinking kindly about you.

To learn to love yourself – do things that make you feel good – sit in a garden, close your eyes and feel the warmth of the sun on your face; watch a hummingbird or butterfly flit from flower to flower, watch small children play at the beach, feel the warm sand between your toes, treat yourself to some fresh flowers or a relaxing bath followed by a luxurious new lotion. See the wonder in the little things, surround yourself with things that make you smile!

You don’t have to look like a stunning supermodel to love yourself (remember their images are usually airbrushed!). You just need to know that you know and like yourself for who you are, you are totally happy in your own skin and confident enough to let your natural beauty shine!
