Mindful Self Love Ideals To Live By
Have Fun By Yourself
When you can have fun by yourself, you may gain confidence. Being able to enjoy your own company can help you let go of the need for acceptance or inclusion by others.
Look back and reflect on past decisions and actions. If you can accept, you can move forward and let go. You deserve forgiveness. Once you pinpoint room for improvement, you can try to write it down, tear it up, and bury it, thus allowing yourself to grow.
Challenge Yourself with New Situations
Nothing is more of a confidence boost than challenging yourself to something outside of your comfort zone and attempting it! Whether you achieve your desired outcome or not, you can now tell yourself you tried and you didn’t self destruct. The next time will be even easier; just remind yourself “I can do this.” You can make it fun and simple by just trying something new such as a hobby, activity/club, trip, or restaurant spot!
Goal Setting – AN UNWRITTEN GOAL IS A WISH
Let’s stop wishing and hoping and start planning and achieving! You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals by writing them down. It helps you clarify exactly what it is you’d like to achieve and results in motivating you and keeping you accountable.
Make sure your goals are…
- Specific: Clear and defined.
- Measurable: Steps, exact amounts, & dates to be able to measure progress.
- Attainable: Achievable steps required to meet goals.
- Relevant: Make it important! It must matter to you, drive you, and motivate you. Otherwise, why would you put your energy into accomplishing it?
- Achievable by a Reasonable Deadline: When would you like to achieve your goal by? By setting a time limit, you can assess and time out the steps needed and then adjust as you go. Don’t overwhelm yourself, consider current responsibilities and restraints.
Write It Down
Writing down your feelings can be a positive way of letting go of negative emotions and experiences. Brainstorming, dreams, to do lists, and creative writing are all positive activities to release creative energy.
Be Your #1 Cheerleader Instead of Leader of the Firing Squad
Build yourself up. Prevent setting yourself up to fall or you’re the one taring you down. Praise yourself, smile, and be thoughtful of your mind, heart, and body. Replace negative doubts or insults with forgiveness and encouragement. Remind yourself of why you put forth your energy into the aspects of your life and review your goals. Allow yourself to take breaks so you do not get burnt out at, well life.
Set Healthy Boundaries: Ability to Say No To Others
Set and honor healthy boundaries. Decide what you are and aren’t okay with. You are the gatekeeper of compromising your morals. Enjoy doing what you can, when you can. It’s easier to let anxieties of other’s expectations go when you respect yourself and set healthy boundaries.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
You decide how much energy to spend negatively. Try to worry less or become frustrated by non threatening issues. (If it isn’t detrimental to yourself or your morals it probably isn’t worth your energy.)
Create Manifestation (Vision) and Celebration Boards
While working towards your goals, a great motivator is to see and review your goals (whether in list form or image). At the same time, it’s important to celebrate your mini victories. Self appreciation is a rewarding and encouraging feeling. Take some time to envision your goals and find, print, make, or cut out images that represent what you want to achieve, where you want to go, and how you want to be. You also want to include an image to represent why you want to focus your energy towards manifesting your future. Place these items as decoratively or plainly in a single place and display somewhere you see daily. On a second “board,” list out your accomplishments. Leave a place for you to add to this list and practice giving yourself credit.
Take Care Of Yourself
Being true to yourself (trusting the voice in your head or feeling in your gut), providing yourself enough nutrients and rest, removing and overcoming stressors, sticking to your morals and boundaries, and fueling your heart and mind with love, acceptance, and growth. When you take care of yourself, you then can be the best version of you which in turn you can be the best you can be for others.
