There are phases which are extra tough and push us in ways we never thought was possible. It could be a new job that is at a higher skill level, becoming a parent or moving to a new country. Looking at these changes and not get overwhelmed is hard. Choosing to look at life’s challenges as opportunities and push them to thrive can make us stronger.
I believe life’s challenges can bring out the best in us. Being aware and taking care of our mind and body can make a huge difference in energy levels and having the patience to deal with everything life throws at us. Putting yourself first is the only way to practice self-love. Turn off the autopilot mode inside you and remind yourself this is only a phase.
Self-love is taking care of yourself in an unconditionally loving way. Simply be good to yourself and not feel guilty about it. End the criticism and empower your mind and body. Know what your triggers are and find simple and effective ways to recharge and deal with stress. Always remember the things in life that take time and worth working for is self-love of yourself.
