Perfectionism

 

From school to work, perfectionism is taught as being a virtue. The reality is that perfectionism hurts you and can lead to you living a shorter life. You can start to move away from perfectionism by recognizing that it is terrible for you. You can work to slowly remove the self-worth that you attach to making everything perfect. You are permitted happiness because the pursuit of happiness is a natural human goal. It is also essential to develop self-compassion to be nice to yourself instead of criticizing yourself.

 

Learn to Listen to Yourself

 

You can learn to listen to yourself by paying attention to internal conversations with yourself. Inner talk is vital to learn to cultivate self-love. Start to learn to pay attention to the language that you use when you make a mistake. Do you insult yourself? Are you kind and understanding towards yourself? Be aware of how it makes you feel.  A way to develop the ability to listen to yourself is meditation. Self-kindness, though, is more important than being a good meditator. Learn to be compassionate and to treat yourself with kindness.

 

Mindfulness

 

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to experiences that occur in the present moment with no judgment. It is the ability to be fully present and aware of what is happening at the moment. Focus on what is in your control. You can cultivate mindfulness by working to become the best version of yourself. It chips away at stress and provides positive benefits to happiness, health, relationships, and work. As with everything, mindfulness requires practice, but you will see results when working on it.

Self-Love

 

Self-love is a basic human necessity to believe in oneself. How you think about yourself reflects your career, relationships, perception from people, and personal happiness. You should never feel guilty about taking care of yourself and practicing self-care. Practice self-love by taking the responsibility to learn who you really are as an individual. You can decide not to allow others to define you. It is up to you to decide to take self-responsibility to embrace your true authentic self. Your value as a person is not defined by your relationship status, job, or anything else that society says you need to give your value. Your self-worth is innate to you.

 

The United States is an overmedicated nation where many of the issues are symptoms of a lack of self-love. When you are insecure, you begin to worry, lash out, and feel sad because you lack confidence. Self-confidence and embracing your true self will help to push down the nasty feeling and thoughts that make rise that affects your personal health. Self-love improves your health because you pay attention to your diet, relationships, intentions, and take control of your life. A healthy diet nourishes your body with clean food, a balanced diet, and staying hydrated with water. You will avoid toxic relationships and spend time with people who treat you with love and respect. There is nothing wrong with doing things that benefit you or are right for you since self-interest focuses on what you and your body need to be healthy. Taking care of your mind and body helps you to unleash your gifts and talents to the world. When you take control of your life, you become self-reliant and believe in yourself.

 

There are endless benefits of self-love that help yourself, your family, and your community. Once you realize your self-worth and practice self-love, you will release the happy hormone. This will make you contagious to everyone you meet, and people will want to be around you.
