| Happy Valentine’s Day!
We generally associate love with giving to and loving others – a partner, a spouse, a friend, our children, or our parents. It’s more of a rarity to consider how we may or may be not loving ourselves. Whatever your personal practices or beliefs about loving yourself, I am here to tell you, that you are worth it and deserve your own love!
How are you loving yourself at this very moment?
Is taking care of your health and well-being a priority in your life?
If so, what action steps are you taking right now to prove it?
The following exercise comes from Rick Hanson, Ph.D, Neuropsychologist and New York Times Best-Selling Author: Several times a day, ask yourself:
Am I on my own side here?
Am I looking out for my own best interests?
Think: Being on my own side, what’s the best decision for me in this particular situation?
In other words, consciously be your own best friend. The benefits of being present for yourself are endless!This sends a message to you and others that you care about yourself, you wish to feel good instead of bad, you wish to be treated well instead of badly, your feelings and experiences matter, and you are valuable. In the end, taking care of your own needs is selfless instead of selfish because you have more quality of life to offer others! If your cup is full in a healthy way, it will overflow positive to others.
