Develop a habit of taking care of your wellbeing. Find a day to relax, and try to be positive, no matter what life throws at you.

To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.

Robert Morley

We spend time worrying about other people and their feelings, working long hours, and trying to maintain a somewhat healthy lifestyle. Yes, we forget the most straightforward thing – to be happy and cherish ourselves.

Here are 7 habits, little things you should start doing to honor and love yourself every day!

Learn something new

Your formal education doesn’t last long, but your thirst for knowledge should be a lifelong choice.

Acquiring new information in the internet era is easy, and you don’t even have to leave your home.

Take care of your health

Start exercising, reexamine your sleeping schedule, and learn how to improve your diet.

Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like your love yourself. Love yourself.

Remember to relax daily, with meditation, painting classes, or yoga.

Taking care of yourself is the ultimate expression of self-love, followed by happiness and joy. When you’re in good shape, everything seems more comfortable.

You can’t control everything

Sometimes, it’s best to do nothing if you cannot control it.

Letting go of control is where freedom lies. It leaves with more time to change things you can and appreciate all your efforts.

Believe that there’s hope

Happy people see opportunities in every new day. They are grateful for everything they already have, but they are open to new possibilities as well.

When you’re down, remember that it’s temporary, and let your mind drift away to your happy place.

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Buddha 

It takes time to learn gratitude, but once you start feeling the abundance, you’ll completely change your perception about life.

Pick your friends wisely

Your time is precious, so make sure that you’re not wasting it. Surround yourself with people who will add value to your life.

Some people are here to help us make us better. Others do the opposite, and the choice is only up to us.

Take responsibility

Everything in your life, good or bad, it’s part of you, so accept it to experience true happiness.

Celebrate successes and see problems as opportunities. Stop asking others for approval, or playing the blame game. Focus on you, what you can do today, and even if the outcome isn’t the best, at least the decision was all you.

Understand you’re good enough

There’s always room for improvement, but at this moment, accept and consciously choose yourself over anyone else.

If you keep choosing yourself every day, eventually, others will do too. But by the time you get to that, you’ll already know you’re plenty enough.

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.
