love yourself with these 12 simple tips

Being in love is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. As humans, we naturally crave to spend our lives with those we can resonate with. 

But before we think of others and get excited about nurturing our relationship with them, there’s nothing more important than taking care of your well-being and nurturing the most important relationship you have. That is your relationship with yourself.

After all, you cannot pour from an empty cup.

So whether you agree or not to take the extra steps to look great for your better half, we are sure you agree that you want to be the best version of yourself.

To do that, we’ve surveyed our team here at Trophy Skin. Let us share our ideas on how to profess self-love so you can look good and feel good every day.

Do More of What Makes You Happy

Go splurge in Sephora and buy all the makeup that your heart desires. Binge-watch all your favorite shows on Netflix while enjoying a pint of your favorite ice cream. Invest in yourself and have your hair colored, your nails done, and get a massage while you are at it.

Why? Because you deserve it!

Go On a Trip

In this post-pandemic world, getting out there is a must! Whether you love skiing or you love going to the beach, have some time away from work so you can recharge. Go to a theme park, while observing safety protocols, and have fun. Destress and get in touch with nature and let your woes melt away.

A long drive might do the trick or a quick trip to the countryside. 

Use essential oils for aromatherapy

Use Aromatherapy to Ignite your Senses

Depending on your preference, you can mix essential oils and diffuse them to take your stress away. Whether you like bergamot, jasmine, peppermint, lavender, or lemon oils, these can help lift up your mood.

Try using a facial mist to give your mood a lift any time of the day. Simply spray on your hair, face, or body for an instant health boost. 

Go On a Food Therapy

Okay, so we made that up. But the idea is, eat whatever makes you happy (in moderation!).

Go eat sushi, have that slice of carrot cake, enjoy your soda float, and eat chocolates! If anybody restricts your food intake, eat them too! LOL. But really, food is made to be eaten and if it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad, right?

If you are a pet person, spend more time with your fur babies!

Cuddling with your pet gives you happy hormones that sadly, non-pet-people miss out on. Dogs, especially, have a way of calming anxious people. They make great companions and life-long friends.

Learn a New Skill

Learn a foreign language. Get into coding. Learn how digital marketing works. Or, go back to school! 

Tap into your creativity and hone your talent in crafting. Be it in painting, baking, scrapbooking, or creating wooden furniture. If you are into fashion, sketch some designs and work on your masterpiece. You can also learn how to cook like Rachael Ray if you want to!

Learning a new skill doesn't just boost your mental health, it also re-wires your brain and help prevent dementia

music heals our soul

Listen to your Favorite Music

There is something in music that taps deep into our souls. It can help you go through a tough time (personally, Third Eye Blind got me through high school). It can bring back fond memories and make you feel young again.

Sing your heart out and don’t mind if you are not hitting the right notes. You are singing for yourself, don’t mind if you are good at it or not.

Inner peace brings clarity and happiness

Find your Inner Peace by Meditation

In this buzzing world where we barely have time to find peace and quiet, having a short and quiet time for ourselves helps maintain our mental well-being. When you feel your mind is so cluttered with tasks, chores, and deadlines, a few minutes of quiet calmness will help destress the brain and help you be more productive.

Have Fun with your Clothes

Who says you are limited to wearing certain clothing because of what other people might say? If you know Louisa from Me Before You, wear those bumblebee tights if that makes you happy! Or wear a printed top with your printed pants and be the ambassador of fine prints! Clothes should be a fun way to show your creativity and don’t let others rain on your parade.

Appreciate Yourself So you Can Appreciate Others

Are you familiar with the saying “you can’t give what you don’t have?” That is so true! Even in little ways, you must be grateful and acknowledge your talents. You may not be the best singer in the world but I bet there is something that you alone are good at. Perhaps you are someone’s favorite person or you mean the whole world to your pet. Even teaching a person to whistle is something someone out there is thankful for. So yes, there is so much a person can appreciate of themselves.

Self-Acceptance is a Must!

Accept that you are you and no one in this world can do a better job of being yourself but you alone. Love your flaws and imperfections because that sets you apart from the rest of the world. We are humans and we are not made to be the same as each other. Embrace your uniqueness and take your spot in this world. You deserve as much space as any other person.

stay true to who you are

Lastly, Don’t Beat Yourself Up for Things You Have Done or Have Failed to Do

As long as you are alive, you always have the opportunity to be the best version of yourself. Don’t give up and if life knocks you down, stand up and come back stronger.
