Self love and happiness

self love

BY SHARON GIBSON LIFE & STYLE COACH | ACCESS CONSCIOUSNESS® CFMW | NORTHLAND

self-love. noun. regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.

Self Love is becoming a much talked about topic in my stratosphere - being in the wellness industry and it’s interesting how far-removed people can actually be from knowing how conducive it is to living a happy life.

At some stage in life, certain events can create trauma be it emotional, physical or psychological. I personally like to view these as catalysts for change. However, I know full well that it can be a process - learning to breakthrough from being stuck in that trauma, one truly does require a series of whole-life perspective to readjust to new ways of living.

This can take a tremendous amount of strength, commitment and trust in oneself to pursue, and if you like me, have had to reinvent yourself even just once in your life as the result of a traumatic event; then maybe, there’s some truth in this for you.

So I’m sharing some of my favourite tools to boost your inspiration tank or help you get started:

  1. Learn to let go - holding on to upsets from our past has no value in the ‘being here now sense’ and does nothing to generate a future of possibilities.
  2. Your Body is your greatest gift – every choice you make impacts your body. Check your thoughts and words. Most physical illness starts in the mind. Change your thoughts, change your words, change your life!
  3. Move – moving your body is an act of self love even if it’s 30 minutes of stretching, walking or dancing. Find your happy place and move your body.
  4. Celebrate – every day you are alive is a gift so start seeing the ‘gift’ in all things no matter what your situation. Change your perception.
  5. Say NO – saying yes when you mean no creates a dissonance in all of your life. Practice saying no to the things that aren’t congruent with your targets and no longer work for you.
  6. Environment – check your environment. Your home/work life and the people you surround yourself with are a huge contributing factor that will influence positivity, happiness and wellness or not!
  7. Repeat! Repetition and consistency create different receptors!

Have fun!
