5 Tips to Greater Self-Love and Enhance your Relationship
“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
In this day of shaming, body or otherwise, on social media, it is no wonder people have a hard time accepting themselves for who they are. Self-love is the foundation to happiness and fulfillment. The health of all our relationships depends on it, being love, friendship or family. Self-love also affects our emotional, physical and mental health well-being, so that it cannot be ignored. And you have to love yourself before you can effectively love others. Below are 5 actions you can take towards self-love.
Sitting stagnates our body. And if that sitting happens to be in front of the T.V, it can also lead to mindless snacking on unhealthy foods. Due to a lack of movement (exercise) and an overload of calories, weight gain is usually the result, which can further erode self-esteem and degrade the perception you have of yourself.
If you have a job that requires sitting, prevent the effects of it by getting up and moving for at least 5 minutes out of each hour. More is even better. With our Body Design Formula Prescription Strength Training System, you can build as much as 20% to 50% strength in 20 minutes, to get you feeling energized and on top of your game in no time.
Have you heard the saying “You are what you eat.” And it turns out to be true. That being the case, you have the choice to eat junk food, which is high in salt, sugar and saturated fat or to eat clean. Clean will not only provide your body with the nutrients it needs, but will also help you stay fuller longer, thus reducing the urge to eat unhealthy snacks between meals. Focus eating fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, lean meats, whole grains, nuts and seeds to get the nutrition your body wants and needs. When you eat better, you feel better about yourself and become more attractive to the world.
Being sleep deprived (for whatever reason) takes its toll on the body because it is the time the body uses to rebuild, repair and replenish itself. If you don’t give it adequate time to do these things, you start the next day at a reduced level of productivity.
If stress is keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep, take action to reduce it. If the cause is environmental, then make changes to your mattress, bedding, room temperature, amount of light coming in, or whatever that is keeping you from getting at least 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep.
Make time for you
Sometimes we get so busy taking care of others, we forget to take care of ourselves. Engage in activities that are relaxing for you. I make gym time, ME TIME!

This one is holding many of us back. There is something we have done in our past that we are still holding on to, or against ourselves, whether it was our fault or not. The only way to get past it is to forgive yourself and put it behind you. Otherwise the negative feelings will haunt you forever and hold you back from being the best you can be.
The past can never be changed, so it is fruitless to dwell on it. Learn from those mistakes so that you don’t repeat them again in the future, and move on to living a quality life. Forget about it and move on!
