5 ways to practice self-love

Ah Valentines Day! Whether you love it or loathe it, February the 14th is coming and whatever your relationship status – you’re going to know about it! In this weeks post, I’m not going to be focusing on whichever camp you fall into and celebrating (or not celebrating) the occasion but rather why we could instead all use the day as a reminder to spend some time on self-love. Yep, you read that correctly. Instead of spreading the love on others, why not spend the time and energy all on yourself? To clarify, self-love is “a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth” (Psychology, 2012).

You’re either reading this at the very, very end of 2017 or the very beginning of 2018. Welcome, either way! As I’ve said before, I love the excuse of a whole new year to sit back and take stock of the past year and more importantly, think about the future. Now don’t worry, this isn’t going to me telling you that you should have resolutions for 2018, but rather a list of rather nice, easy things you can do to make 2018 even more brilliant that’s it’s (hopefully!) already going to be.

It’s finally December! I feel like I’ve been tapping my foot for the last two months because let’s be honest, they are merely part of the large-scale countdown to CHRISTMAS! Have you guessed what I’m talking about this week? Yep, you got it. I’ve decided to begin the month of Christmas by compiling a few festive favourites.

2017 is practically over, let’s be honest. It’s been a good one but as the year winds down, I’ve started thinking about 2018. I might not necessarily do New Year’s resolutions but I’m definitely one of these people who uses the new year as an excuse to put my life into perspective and work out what I want to focus on. A gal can always use a bit of help though and that’s where Ella Iconic’s 2018 Daily CEO of My Own Life planner comes in. Keep reading for a lovely little giveaway too!

I’ve been going through a bit of a thing with blogging lately. Not quite an epiphany but more of a realisation of what I want to do with my blog and what I want back in return. I think this is a really healthy internal conversation to undergo, even if it has taken me two years to get there.
