“I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?”
– Shailene Woodley
Yes, it’s so true that you can’t give what you don’t have. How can you give others genuine love if you don’t love yourself? Self-love is the greatest love of all because it is a prerequisite to all kinds of love. Psst.ph curates 12 best articles penned by its writers about loving ones’s self.
“Enjoy me-time. Live a well-balanced life. There’s a time for everything. Life should not be all about work. Your body and mind need to recharge. Pamper yourself. Watch a good movie. Read a book.”
“Once you feel good about your whole being, everything will follow next and people will start to imbibe such aura later on that they will begin to notice the difference in you.”
“Healthy living is actually within your reach. Healthy living is a long-term commitment so you have to prep yourself up if you’re indeed really serious about it. It’s not going to be a walk in the park, but the benefits are nonetheless lifelong.”
“To live the life you truly love and deserve, create it then toward your beliefs. If, for instance, you want to give birth to your child the natural way without the use of drugs, then work with your licensed medical provider following your birthing plan. Keep everything clear and consistent from the start. Remember that everything starts within and from you.”
“In case you haven’t noticed, there is a connection between your looks and your emotions. When you’re happy, your heart pumps faster and your blood circulates more quickly (and you know all the good things it does for your body). Plus, feeling good usually makes you stand up straighter, smile more and look people in the eye. So everyone can strive to be beautiful in their own way. You just got to have that attitude and focus on yourself.”
“If a piece of clothing doesn’t make you go “oohh!” then don’t buy it. If it doesn’t look good on you the first time you try it on, don’t buy it.”
“You’ve slaved yourself sick to earn that all important diploma. Now, it’s time to relax and treat yourself to a pampering spree. Psst.ph suggests rejuvenating your skin within the comforts of your own home. Not only is it a great way to relax, you won’t have to fret about the amount of money you have to spend. At the same time, you don’t deprive your skin of the TLC it needs.”
“When we hit the gym, most of us are being motivated on the physical outcome. We may also notice how we feel good about ourselves after working out. When it’s a struggle to vent out our anxieties, we find relief just after an hour or two of lifting, jogging, squats, presses, or crossovers.”
“Even how busy life can be and though you seldom see each other, in times of need, a true friend will always find time for you willingly. But first, start by finding the time when time permits.”
“Accepting the fact that you need to slow down a bit makes it easier for you to do something about feeling unmotivated and bored.”
“You’ve made an error. Either you blew off a big deal or you mess up your schedule. More loss may come when you remain mum. It is but fitting to recover from it quickly. You need to make amends so it will not affect any of your relationships with others. More than ever that you need to forgive yourself of that fault and move on. But, you need to keep the lessons learned from the wrongdoing.”
“Count your blessings. Sit down and write a list of things to be thankful for. If it’s tough, just decide on a set, say pick 3 things. Then think back to the times in our life when you didn’t have those things. No matter what threats you’re facing now, at least you have those precious things you are grateful for.”
Love one’s self. Cherish who you are. Be the best that you are for yourself and the rest shall follow.
