 Sometimes we get so caught up in showing other people love and waiting for others to love us back that We forget about self love .   Self-love is being kind to yourself, truly accepting you for you, and knowing your worth. It's okay to invest your love in others, but be sure you are investing in the relationship with you. If you are not sure where to start, start by dating yourself. 

Here are a few ideas to practice your journey of self-love. 

 Get Out of Those Sweats 
As much as it may hurt to hear this, you've got to give the comfortable clothes a break. Certainly, the way you dress has an impact on your mood, just like the old saying goes, “If you look good, you feel good.” Your brain often associates the messy bun and sweatpants combo for a sick day or a chill day. 

 Write a Love Letter to Yourself 
What a great way to show self-love, by writing a love letter filled with positivity talking about everything you adore about yourself. By leaving the insecurities behind, you'll discover that there are so many things that make you, you. Forgive yourself in this letter for any mistakes you've made. Speak about your goals and dreams that you have, but don't forget to thank yourself for your current hard work. If you want to do this letter right, you have to detach from the use of technology and get out a pen and paper to write the letter rather than typing it. After completing your love letter to yourself, put it in an envelope and address it to yourself. Tuck the letter away and whenever you need some extra loving, read it. 

 Challenge Yourself
 You can admit it, sometimes life gets boring when it's just you. Try stepping out of your comfort zone and doung some challenge cards to break you out of your routine. Once a week, choose a challenge card out of a jar that has an activity on it for you to do. Whatever you pull out, you must at least attempt it. For example, one challenge card that you may pull out is to turn your phone off for a few hours. Doesn't seem that bad, but social media can be hard to escape these days. Use any day to show yourself some love.
