💕 “I love myself” is such a profound revolution. So simple, yet so many struggle with doing so. Learn to appreciate that you are uniquely you. There is no one else like you, and that is beautiful. Your quirks, your flaws, your personality, your traits, your mind, and your heart. Love your self for all that you are. 💕
SELF CARE. 🥰 What does it look like for you?
Self care definitely went to the wayside after becoming a mom, which unfortunately is extremely common. However, I’ve been making it a priority in my life lately. I lost a bit of myself that i need to get back. I am still ME, and focusing on me is important.
It’s not selfish, it’s necessary. It’s a form of respect. It’s essential to your physical and mental health. It has helped with my anxiety a lot, too.
Focusing on things that light a fire within me, doing things that make me happy, doing things that I’m passionate about, socializing and not isolating myself, pampering myself, learning more and expanding my knowledge (reading, podcasts, etc), putting my creativity to use, eating healthy foods, exercising consistently and moving more, focusing on building my business, going to therapy, journaling, removing negativity, etc.
All of these things are necessary for your mental health, which in turn better your physical health. Never stop focusing on you and your health, and never stay stagnant. We can always grow, evolve, learn. When we focus on ourselves and love ourselves, everything else flows naturally.
A little HIIT you can throw into your workout or do for at-home cardio! A couple ways you can do it: 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off and repeat as many times, or you can do 15 seconds each exercise and then rest after you do all 4 and repeat as many times as you want. -Jumping lunges (on riser or not)
-Jump squats with toe tap
-Side to side hops

Well hi!! 👋🏼😊Feeling SO much better today. I mentioned a while back that my anxiety has been a little out of control lately and I’ve been waiting to see a therapist... still waiting and tbh this past week I’ve been an emotional wreck i have no idea why. I think I’m getting my period too lmaoooo 😂but I’ve been trying to take it upon myself to heal and get it under control.
Focusing on my mindset, breath, and the things I can control have helped. Trying to release the things i cannot control. Trying not to overthink or worry for no reason. And really trying to work on my emotional reactions.
I also shared on my story that I’ve set small goals for myself:
1. Be more present and aware of my surroundings, who I’m with, what I’m doing.
2.Stop mindless scrolling (esp on IG). Reduce my screen time. I have a habit of doing this a LOT for no reason.
3. Read once per day at least. Goal is 30 min before bed.
4. Learn something new daily. Either by listening to a podcast, researching a topic I’d like to know more about, learning in order to share and help others, or news.
5. Try to meditate. I have never been able to (hello I have anxiety lmao), but I think this will really help.
I’m tapping into my spirituality more as well. Learning more about myself, on all levels. Focusing on me and my goals, dreams, and aspirations. Growing my business. Finding out what really sets my soul on fire. Figuring out my passion and purpose and how i can serve others the best way I can. That’s my starting point 🤗 share something you’re working on in terms of growth, I’d love to hear it 👇🏼

I talk a lot about self-love on here, because it’s something that hasn’t always been constant for me. I’ve been that person who was self-conscious, insecure, doubting, negative & more.
Heck, I still am a lot of times. Things happen in our lives that make us second guess ourselves and our worth/value... especially if you have dealt with not always knowing your worth and doubting yourself in the past. Certain life situations can just exacerbate those feelings.
I’ve received this question multiple times - how do you learn to love yourself? This is honestly a loaded question, and there isn’t one way to do so. I will say though... you’re the only constant in your life, you will be with yourself forever. Why would you want to waste your time not loving your body (which is your home), yourself (the person you spend most time with), or focusing on negative and doubting yourself?
The relationship you have with yourself is just like any other relationship - it requires work. You won’t always love yourself, but you need to accept all that you are, flaws and all. You need to put effort into yourself. Take care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. You need to lift yourself up, and support yourself no matter what. You need to spend quality time with alone and focus on self-care. You need to know that you’re capable of anything, but there is always room for improvement. You are intelligent, beautiful, valuable, and worthy. Never forget that.
Focusing on improving in all aspects of my life - mind, body, soul, & more. It’s been a really rough start to the new year for me, but I’m ready to take control of my mindset and get to work. It is motivating AF knowing that it’s up to me to take control. I have the power to improve my life, my body, and my mind.... no one else.
Cheers to mental & physical gains 🥰
