Let’s talk self-love!
Why We’re All About Self-Love This Valentine’s
Relationship status: Irrelevant. Self-love: Important.
Ok, Valentine’s is on the horizon and whilst self-love should always be a priority, it can come with extra pressure thanks to the season of romance.
No matter whether you have big V-day plans on the cards or are spending it indulging in some much needed TLC – today we’re sharing all you need to know when it comes to putting yourself first this Valentine’s Day (and every other day that follows).
First things first, please understand self-love and acceptance isn’t an easy or overnight task.
It takes time and you’ll of course have those down days that hit you out of the blue, that’s just part of the process babe. But by wanting to work on you, for you – well, that’s the very first step to finding true self-love.
Initial steps to achieving total self-love…
Stop comparing yourself to others.
Remember your value doesn’t lie in how your body looks.
Put yourself first.
Be kind to yourself.
Reminder: Self-love goes way beyond face masks and pamper nights (although they’re seriously great too).
Self-love is all about prioritising the things that serve you!

Why not put your phone on airplane mode or take a social detox for the evening? You deserve it doll!
Listen to an iconic playlist that is bound to lift your mood.
Spend some time journaling.
Take time to get a breath of fresh air.
Read a self-care book or tune into a podcast.
Head to a exercise class or do a at home workout.
Drink your water. We repeat, drink water!
Basically, keep yourself busy with things that make you feel good girl!
Also, be sure to remember that Valentine’s does not always have to mean a romantic partner!
