2. Limit your time on social media
Try setting yourself a daily time limit on each platform. You can do this by going into the social media settings, selecting ‘your activity’, then clicking ‘set daily reminder’. You’ll then receive a reminder of when you have reached your daily time limits.
The less time you spend scrolling through social media, the less chance you have of comparing yourself to unrealistic beauty and lifestyle standards. Ensuring you only follow accounts that make you feel happy or empowered can be a powerful tool to achieving self-love. On our Instagram account, we only share positive and meaningful posts, giving evidence-based guidance on different health topics and sharing our lovely customers’ journeys.
3. Surround yourself with positive people
Positive personalities are contagious. Ever noticed that when you’ve caught up with your optimistic friend, you feel more energetic and cheerful for the rest of the day? But when you’re around pessimistic people you leave feeling stressed and low? Surrounding yourself with positive people, who compliment you and listen carefully to what you have to say, can ultimately help you understand how to self-love.
4. Celebrate your achievements
Oftentimes, focusing too much energy on the end goal or the goals we’re finding difficult to achieve, can divert our attention from the things we should actually be celebrating – the things we have achieved.
Celebrating our achievements allows us to see how we’ve progressed, what’s going well, and what we should be doing more of. Take time to write down and reflect on your achievements and align them with your thoughts and feelings.
