5 Ways To Love Yourself

There is nothing more important in the world than loving oneself. We only get one life, and this is it, and we need to make the best of it. That means we need to take care of ourselves. This goes especially if you are a family woman/man. If you have loved ones that depend on you to take care of them, you need to take care of you first. Here are five ways to slow down and enjoy life and love yourself a little more.

1. Color Your Worries Away


These days, they make coloring books for everything, and I do mean everything. From nature, to cuss words, whatever your fancy may be, grab a set of colored pencils, gel pens, or markers, snuggle up in your favorite recliner and start coloring. It's a wonderful way to de-stress, quiet your mind, and adjust your focus to one thing, instead of worrying about one-hundred things at a time!

2. Walk It Out


Walking is one of the best exercises out there. It is simple, easy and fun to do. Make it an adventure. This one you can even do with the kids, if you so wish. Walk around your neighborhood and look at it from a new perspective. What do you see? Have you ever noticed that beautiful flowering tree before, or that puppy up the street?

3. Never Stop Learning


Learning is a lifelong process, one thing that never stops. I learned that early on. I love to learn brand new things, and if I physically could, I would be attending college to become a journalist. But that never panned out. But that doesn't mean that there are not other means of learning! There are plenty of online courses I can take, books I can read, workbooks I can work on, and so much more! What is something that you would like to learn?

4. Write It Out


You don't need to have a blog to write down your feelings. If you're anything like me, you own at least 15 or so blank notebooks at any given time. These are great for writing about your day, turn it into your own personal journal, or pick up a journal that you love from your favorite bookstore and start writing about how each and every day goes. This is a great way to get your feelings out.

5. Turn Up The Audio


Oh, music, how I love thee. There is nothing quite like turning on your favorite song and just jamming out to it. Music is healing, even studies have proven that. It helps take us away to another place entirely. So turn on your favorite music streaming service, or pop a CD into your stereo system and rock out!

What is your favorite way to slow down life a little and love yourself a little more?
