When you love yourself many other elements in your life will just come together beautifully. But why? And how does that translate to your lifestyle?
We can often find ourselves looking for the perfect homes throughout our lives. When you love yourself, not only do you picture yourself there but you also ensure you ARE there.
We all dream of living in the most beautiful area, heading on the most beautiful vacations, and knowing people with the most beautiful souls.
However, over time we might realize that since we are always the common denominator no matter where we go or travel, that loving your surroundings will also mean loving yourself. This means that while the search for our perfect lives is absolutely a comforting and worthwhile pursuit, it can never fully be met without constructing your perfect life.
Of course, these are noble goals, but perhaps they’re not to be fully arrived at, as the journey is always the best part of heading to a destination.
To get you started, it’s only right that we discuss how you can focus on loving yourself, and developing your mindset in a manner that can help you feel more comfortable in yourself so you can also feel more comfortable in your surroundings. With the following advice, this could be possible:
Your Daily Schedules
It’s quite amazing how when we tell ourselves we are worth it, we don’t usually back that up with any strengthened understanding of why.
Of course, having this vague self-belief can often help you, but it can be so much more effective when coupled with a schedule that reinforces this belief into you.
Does this mean you need to climb a real mountain every weekend in order to call yourself someone worthwhile?
Not at all. But structuring your daily schedule can help you show yourself you’re important and worth taking care of, which is much more grounded than a simple sentence said alone.
For example, waking up at 6am on the dot each day can help give you time to meditate, to read a little, or to exercise slightly in the morning. With that you can start your day off with positivity, as if breaking the billiard balls of your day with excellence.
This shows you that you love yourself, as do many other self-preserving actions in your daily schedule.
Your Long Term Goals
Focusing on your goals can help you feel less swayed by the circumstances around you.
With a diligent effort each day, even a small one, you can feel as though it doesn’t matter where you are right now. Because where you’re headed is better, and your personal respect for yourself is pushing you forward to that which you love.
This self-love can ironicially help you appreciate your surroundings all the more.
Your Fitness & Body Image
Your body image is important to consider. Might you be better off accepting your perceived flaws to help you feel more comfortable?
For example, a birthmark is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, quite the contrary, it helps you stand out as unique. But you must never feel like you are shameful if you do wish for a change.
Professional surgeons such as Dr Kourosh Takavoli emphasize through their work that love is the ability to love yourself no matter how you wish to express it. Feeling comfortable in that could be your greatest strength.
It’s all about if your perception is healthy or not, and what you might do to help you feel better.
With these tips, you are sure to love yourself as a means to love your surroundings.
