Go into the bathroom and look yourself in the face; then, say 5 things that you are blessed with. You should do this daily.
Initially, coming up with five things might seem very difficult when you first start, but you need to say them the most. You don’t have to start big. The point is to start.
Make sure to look in a mirror while you do this task. You are telling yourself your blessings; therefore, eye contact is important.
Make a pact
Make yourself a promise to love yourself. Put yourself first. You deserve it. Promise yourself that you won’t let others treat you poorly because you deserve the world.
Be true to this pact. Thus, if you notice yourself in situations where people are belittling you or being mean to you, remove yourself. Just being around negative talk can lower your self-esteem, so don’t listen to it.
Furthermore, people who are meant to be in your life won’t make you feel bad about who you are. They will help you fulfill your pact with yourself, not try to break it.
Splurge on yourself
Take a vacation or a shopping spree to invest in your well-being. You don’t need to spend a lot of money; however, you need to invest in yourself.
If you have been meaning to buy that cute necklace you keep seeing or that book that just came out, do it! You focus enough on other people, but now you need to focus on yourself.
Date time with number one: you
Schedule one night a week for yourself. Grab a book you have wanted to finish or that movie you never get to watch and a nice tall glass of wine. Kick back on the couch and relax.
Furthermore, if you have kids, this is the night for the other parent to bond with the child. They can look after them while you take time just for you.
