12 Ways to Honour Yourself

köpa Viagra i grekland Does it feel more natural for you to honour other people rather than yourself? You may speak words of appreciation or shower your loved ones with gifts but when it comes to you, suddenly you are not so kind. You may even come up with excuses not to honour yourself because you tell yourself you’re not that important. The truth is you do need to show some appreciation for yourself. You need to fill your own tank so you can have a reservoir for others. Besides, it really wouldn’t hurt to do something just for you because a fulfilled you is a happier you – positively impacting those around you.

600 mg seroquel too much Honouring yourself is all about giving importance to your own well-being. That includes your personal, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. Here are 12 simple ways to help you get started.

One // Carve out some alone time for yourself daily

investigate this site Before you rush to the office, you just might want to sip that coffee leisurely and savour your breakfast. This could be your time for meditation, prayer or anything that will calm your soul as you prepare for the day’s battle. If this doesn’t work with you in the morning, then try to do this at night. Carving out a moment of solitary time to rest and refocus dramatically impacts your well-being. Learn how to create your morning routine here.

Two // Spend time with your thoughts and emotions

get more responses online dating Magic happens when pen hits paper. Intangible thoughts become matter in the form of ink as emotions are released, ideas solidified or reflections understood. Pouring out your thoughts is a great way of giving importance to yourself. This allows you to process your emotions. Think of it as your own space where your mind roams free. For me, writing in a journal or on a notebook using multi-colored pens is like unravelling my thoughts into comprehensible (and processable) compartments allowing me to reflect, release or action. If you’re always on the go, there are journal apps with passwords so you can do it anytime, anywhere. Not quite the same as letting your mind run wild yet certainly better than keeping it all locked away in a messy head.

Three // Take control of your own schedule

Tastylia (Tadalafil Oral Strips) Without Prescription You may think that you’re running your own life but your calendar tells otherwise. Learn when to say yes and when to say no. If you’re too tired to go out then give yourself permission to cancel. If your plate is full, then tell your boss about it. Give yourself some breathing room. Please.

Four // Hold your head up high

strattera online no prescription I’m not talking about good posture but rather living your life with excellence in all you do. Take pride in your appearance, look after your body, give 100% to your work and treat yourself and others well. Helen Keller said it perfectly, “Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.” By holding your head high, you’re showing the world that you’re proud of yourself. It’s not about getting attention, it’s about not really caring if people give you attention or not because you are focused on being the best version of yourself each day.

Five // Maintain ‘real’ connections In this world of social media, face-to-face interaction has taken a backseat. We can go days without making eye contact and really connecting with another human. Take time to meet up with your best girlfriends and connect with people who encourage you, laugh with you, and listen to you. Nurture these emotional bonds and your relationships with these people because having a support group cannot be replaced by anything material!

Six // Restore your soul

buy strattera no prescription Nature has its way of pacifying our souls. Go for a walk in the park, drive to a nearby beach or lake, or plan an impromptu nature tripping! Sometimes all you need is the sound of rustling leaves, ripples of water, and chirping of birds to calm your spirit. Ah, the serenity.

Seven // Indulge in a good book

additional hints Books take us to different places that sometimes the real world cannot provide. It allows you to meet new people, become an observer of somebody else’s life, and just experience every kind of emotion that the character feels without strings attached. And yes, it widens your vocabulary, too! #bonus

Eight // Buy something you want regularly Take note it’s a WANT not a need. You don’t have to splurge especially if you can’t afford it (responsibility here ladies). It could be any material item or an experience like watching a play or trying out a new restaurant! The important thing is you have to be intentional in rewarding yourself. As T. Harv Eker states in his popular Millionaire Mind program set up a monthly jar/account and deposit 10% of your income. Then at the end of each month you HAVE to ‘blow it’ all on whatever you want. The psychology behind this concept is releasing your scarcity and poverty mindset – an added positive! Yay.

Nine // Remove the word “CAN’T” from your vocabulary The moment you say “I can’t” you’re already undermining your abilities. So instead of saying that, tell yourself, “I will try” or better yet say what the “Little Engine That Could” chants when he’s doing something insurmountable, “I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!” Approach your fears with childlike enthusiasm and you’ll be surprised to find out that you can actually do something that you once thought was improbable!

Ten // Forgive yourself Mistakes and regrets can haunt you for a long time. But you shouldn’t let the past hold you back from moving forward. Forgive yourself. Stop blaming yourself. Shut down those “if only” and “I should’ve” thoughts because you won’t be able to change the past but you can always do something about the present to create a more positive future.

Eleven // Stop criticizing and start complimenting What comes to your mind when you look at yourself in the mirror? Too fat, too skinny, too pale? How about you start appreciating your eye color or your hair? Celebrate who you are and tell yourself you are beautiful inside and out. God doesn’t make mistakes.

Twelve // Respect, Yo! Self-respect (or lack thereof) will influence the decisions you make and the actions you take. Disrespecting yourself due to insecurities or low self-esteem can lead to regrets as you attempt to be someone you are not in order to be liked or approved of by others. Cultivating healthy self-respect begins with honouring your truth such as always acting upon your values and never compromising who you are for anyone or anything else.

With love + so much honour for you
