Ways to Show Yourself Some Love


It’s not always easy, especially if you love staying busy, working and taking care of others. You might even feel a little guilty about taking some time out for yourself. BUT, we all need to show ourselves a little extra love at times.  Better yet, make it a habit. Whether it be turning off your phone for a few hours or giving yourself a little day off once one a while. Below are a few suggestions on ways to show yourself some love.

  • Have a mini pamper session.
  • Turn off your phone for a few hours.
  • Jump on your bed. Like when you did when you were little (come on, when was the last time you did this?).
  • Watch a stand-up comedy show.
  • Have a lunch date with a friend.
  • Sleep in on the weekend.
  • Spend some time in the sun.
  • Play with your pet.
  • Make a playlist of your favorite songs at the moment.
  • Write a thank you note to someone. Just because.
  • Take a nap.
  • Call someone you love.
  • Lay back close your eyes and listen to music.
  • Create positive, loving affirmations for yourself.
  • Plan a fun weekend for yourself and your partner/friends/family. It can be something as simple as game night and pizza.
  • Binge-watch your favorite TV show on Netflix.
  • Do something creative.
  • Read a good book
  • Buy yourself some flowers or a nice box of chocolates.
  • Go for a run or a long walk.
  • Write down 10 things you’re grateful for.
  • Put some music on and shake your booty.
  • Prepare your favorite meal.
  • Create a vision board for yourself.
  • Organize your closet.
  • Get up early, make yourself breakfast and enjoy your morning coffee or tea in peace and quiet. No TV, no radio, no phone, no laptop.
  • Do something that you’ve been putting off for a while.
  • Do something for the first time; it can be something very simple, like trying out a new restaurant for the first time, all by yourself.
