You may ask, is it possible to change life? Or you may think that this is just a theory well known between mindset coaches and influencers. It’s absolutely normal to think so while you are moving from an unhealthy mindset to a healthy one, while you are learning to love and value yourself.
Do you want to take responsibility for your life? This post is for you. Yes, the path of changes is not an easy one to walk on and it takes time, but it’s worth taking. Use this post to improve your relationship with yourself. It will help you love yourself more.
TAKING SOMETHING OFF
Self-love usually includes more self rituals for our thoughts and bodies. It teaches us to live a more fulfilling life. Moreover, self-love provides us greater life satisfaction, and increased happiness. But first we must learn how to love ourselves and stop doing what is unhealthy for us.
Adding a new routine in your life with more self-love rituals can be overwhelming. You can feel that you don’t have enough time for yourself and feel even more stressed. Even though you make time for all of the self-care things, but you still feel burned out. That’s why it is important to take something off from your life before including new rituals. It can be volunteering that doesn’t give you happiness anymore, side projects, or relations. You will feel lighter and you will feel like yourself again.
If you feel that you lack appreciation, think why this sense is rare, what stops you from appreciating what you have. More often, we seek the next thing and look at what others have that we don’t. We are used to blaming others for our circumstances. Don’t blame others for what you don’t have. Own and appreciate what you have. If you pay close attention, you will see that there is no limit to what you can be grateful for in your life and around you.
Develop a positive attitude towards yourself and your life. You live only once, so live to your full potential. All our problems are created by ourselves. We usually forget that every situation can teach us something new. It depends only on us what we take from every situation. We can blame ourselves, or we can choose to be happy that we have learned and move forward.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS AND YOU
When we are unmotivated with our current situation we start doing anything that keeps us away from our to-do lists: scrolling through the internet, watching YouTube videos, or shopping online. And we start doubting ourselves where our lives are going, and we let our negative thoughts rule our brain. The mind starts noticing only negative things that happen around us.
Though negative thoughts are not as bad as they look. They are a survival mechanism from our past and help us find improvements. But too many negative feelings lead us to emotional stress. Try to find one positive benefit of negative thinking. Hopefully, you will realize that it doesn’t give you any benefit. So, try to see the other side of the situation that seems to be only negative. This will help you move forward with a mind that’s more open. Develop the habit to notice negative moments and think why you are thankful in this situation. The more you practice the more you change your attitude towards negative things.
INSTEAD OF THE END: SELF DISCIPLINE
Without self-discipline everything you are seeking falls apart. It is important because there are so many distractions around us that pay our attention from what is really important to us. When you are self-disciplined you prioritize what is most important for you and you are well concentrated on your priorities. That requires having the ability and courage to say “no” to temptations. In most cases, it doesn’t sound very exciting, but if you want to apply self-love to daily life, to be more successful or to achieve the kind of life you want, you need to do the same things over and over every day. And so step by step you turn down one temptation after another and each time you feel stronger and stronger. Self-discipline will move you towards your self-love, towards your success.
