If you want to improve all aspects of your life, then keep on reading to get this helpful self love advice. Learn why and how you should love yourself first.
They say that you can’t fall in love with others until you fall in love with yourself.
Well, “they” is right!
However, sometimes our journey isn’t neat. It can be messy. People, friends, children, and more might arrive in our lives before we have found ourselves and learned how to love ourselves fully – and we can wind up with challenging interactions which can further harm our self love.
If you’re new to my site, hi there! I am a bestselling author, award winning designer and research geek on happiness.
In my research I’ve read a range of studies which recommend boosting your self love to improve your relationships and over all happiness.
With this in mind, I created a beautiful journal, called Listen to Your Heart to help you to eavesdrop on your inner longings, fears and helpful lessons to be learned – so you can get more deeply in touch with loving yourself more.
Plus …in this article I share key tips to improve your self worth and self esteem.
The road to loving yourself isn’t always easy, but it is essential.
So no matter where you are, here are some ways that you can love yourself more.
What you say to yourself – over and over and over – simply becomes compounded over time – and you can set you up for a negative thought spiral.
So try to catch yourself in the midst of a self talk spree. Pause. Then think about what you might say to a child or your best friend when they aren’t feeling great. Swap in these words and loving tone as the basis for what you should be saying to yourself.
Unfortunately, most often, we give people a big boost that we simply don’t give to ourselves.
Be kind to yourself always, which is even more critical if you are in the middle of difficult situations.
Not everyone out there is a nice person. Sometimes we end up in relationships with those people or friends with them.
At first, we might not notice how we feel when we are around them. But after a short while, an uneasy feeling can wash over us.
Removing people from your life who are toxic is an essential part of your own growth.
It can be hard to find the strength to leave a situation where you aren’t growing. It is important that you have a support team you can lean on. Fore example… a close friend, a loving family member, a therapist, Spodek law group, a doctor, and more can provide a great network.
I also recommend learning the skills of healthy boundaries and strong communication – via my video course Manage and Avoid Drama Llamas. These video training tools have helped many thousands of people around the world to develop effective ways to respond when people treat you badly.

Millions of us are too busy to find time to do the things we love. Or, millions of us are so exhausted giving everyone our energy that we have none left for ourselves.
Maybe a bit of both.
What would you do if you had 5 days and just yourself to look after?
Or maybe write a book or learn a new skill?
Try looking at where you can save some energy and use it for yourself. It doesn’t have to be a high energy cost item; you might just want to drink tea in the peace and quiet.
It might involve you taking a walk in the local nature reserve with a flask of tea.
Plan some time for yourself.
Embrace yourself truly.
We are all trying to fit into a mold that might not be the best thing for us, instead of letting us be ourselves authentically.
The more of yourself you embrace, the better you can live. It is a healing process too.
Take some quiet time to look at your past, address how you feel about things. Basically, do some soul searching.
Allow yourself to be alone with your thoughts and feelings, so you can process everything in a deep way. Introspection can be a powerful tool when you are on the journey of loving yourself.
