As you may well know, it’s important to give your love to your friends, family and partners but it’s also just as vitally important to give the good lovin’ to yourself .
The saying goes “You gotta fill yourself up with love, so much so that you overflow and have an abundance to give to others”. I read that somewhere but I can’t remember where! Here’s how you do it for yourself.
Create a morning ritual for yourself // Rituals are what you do every day, good or bad, that determine your life’s conditions. So it’s better to consciously do them than unconsciously. How to create your own morning ritual? Decide how you want your day to go and what you wanna feel like. Energized? Blissful? Badass? Sexy as hell? Then choose 1 – 3 things to do with your body, your focus and your words. So that could be getting straight out of bed, putting your trainers on and going for a run, or making a green smoothie, or singing your favourite song in your underwear. Whatever is gonna make you feel the way you wanna feel.
Keep your negative thoughts on the downlow // A toughie but a goodie. Negativity can be like a virus, once you catch it it’s bloody hard to get rid of but if you keep yourself healthy and well nourished, you won’t get hit by the doom and gloom of it all. This TOTALLY applies to negative thoughts, negative talk, judging, gossiping and complaining – it’s all the same. If you have a negative thought pop up, intercept it by placing a positive thought there instead. You can only think one thought at a time so make your thought space a positive place. You do that by focusing on your surroundings and finding something small that’s positive to you. Maybe a flower, painting, the sky, a couple, anything.
