5 Highly effective exercises for ultimate self-love

THE 5 STEPS

Step 1. Be your own child 🧒 

We all need unconditional love, when ever you are hard on yourself. Be your own child. Treat yourself as if you are treating your own child or if you had a child.

Self-love is tough for people who grew up in harsh environments and or developed codependent traits. Codependents struggle with self-love because they tend to concentrate on other people’s beliefs, feelings, demands, and problems and mostly take care of others than themselves. Often this is at our own expense. Changing these patterns is shifting from taking care of others to taking care of ourselves and tuning in to our feelings and needs rather than others.

Suppose you’re still having a problem differentiating self-love from other pleasurable activities. Then try treating yourself like a toddler. While grown-ups do have some different needs, it’s beneficial to figure out whether something is right for you or not.

What do kids need to thrive?

  • Healthy food
  • Consistent schedule
  • Enough rest
  • Playmates who treat them well
  • Activities that stimulate their brains
  • Playtime
  • Fresh air
  • Help to soothe and comfort themselves
  • Physical affection
  • A safe place to live
  • Kind words

You never have to sacrifice yourself and push through burnout, resentments, or life burdens. If you struggle with self-love, you can gradually add more self-love and kindness to your life to indicate a new-found appreciation and acceptance of who you are and what you need.

Step 2. Affirmation 🌞

Affirmations are good positive statements that can help us to challenge and possibly overcome self-sabotaging. Also our negative thoughts. When we repeat them often, and we believe in them, we all can start to make positive changes.

It is as simple as reminding ourselves that “I am more than enough.” Just remember this and repeat it to yourself. If you ask me, I would just write it down on paper and keep it with me at all times. It is crucial to simply take it out and read it to yourself as many times as you can. The goal is for us to change our thought patterns and channel our self-view positively. Unfortunately, we neglect how essential it is for us to have an understanding of our ability. And to be enough for ourselves. So it is vital to have an effective process and to have a healthy self-love exercise; we must affirm ourselves.

Brain Scans Can Help Explain Why Self-Affirmation Works

This study helps reveal how brain-imaging research can be utilized to complement and illuminate psychological perspectives. In this case, serving to explain and improve upon a well-researched self-help method. As the researchers put it in science-speak:

“We find novel evidence that a future frame may act synergistically with value-based self-affirmations to bolster a sense of self prior to threat exposure.”

Step 3. Meditation 🧘‍♀️ 

Self-Love Meditation can be a truly a powerful mode that can ease our racing minds. By pulling our attention to our innermost self. We can find our source of internal peace and the acceptance that we desire. Stressful thoughts can gently decrease as we expand the peace needed to move forward with love and peace.

You are a unique, with beautiful soul

Self-esteem is how we value ourselves individually. More accurately, it’s the thoughts that we perceive about who we are. If our assumptions about ourselves are regularly optimistic, then we have healthy self-esteem and self-love. On the contrary, if our thoughts are frequently negative, then we — like many others, may have low self-love and self-esteem. The good news is that meditation can further help us change the relationship we have with our thoughts. Ultimately building self-love and self-esteem. Increasing our confidence, that is our goal.

Meditating on my self-love allows me to easily reconnect with my heart and body—to remember that “I am worthy of my love, especially my own.”

For me, this is a beautiful chance to discover something unique about myself and tune into my physical and emotional desires. We must all let self-love empower us to develop a healthier relationship with ourselves. And allow us to be more fully in our life.

Step 4. Read more 📚

Researchers found that reading is the best way to overcome stress and grow in our life. Reading can even help us prevent some forms of dementia. Self Love Exercises dos not have to be had for a simple way. We can make good on that commitment to take care of our body, mind, and soul; we don’t need to look any further than just our bookshelf. Also, if you are not a fan of reading, try audiobooks. This can be a very easy way to finish a book as fast as you can.

Step 5. The mirror 🪞

The Mirror technique is a unique, new-age kind of practice that you meet your reflection of self in the mirror. You can give yourself loveself-affirming affirmations, positive vibes, and even open up a dialogue with yourself as if you were speaking with a beloved friend.” Saying empowering words and appreciate your own actual image.

I personally learned about the mirror technique a few years ago while in school. Discovering how helpful it can be when I feel lost and out of touch with my true reality. Soon after, it became my go-to self-love practice—and it is just a good reason to see myself. Mirror work is a unique type of practice that you can use. In order to meet your true actual reflection in the mirror and send yourself all the loving, self-affirming affirmations, even open up new conversations with yourself.

“[Mirror work] is about getting to know yourself so you can face your life with courage as an aligned and self-aware human being.”

—empowerment coach Natalia Benson

Just start by telling yourself that “I need me,” “I am great,” I look amazing,” the goal in to bring ourselves to the center of our attention and to shift our inner consensus.
