When you think of love do you think of loving your husband, your boyfriend, children, family, friends. I bet loving yourself comes right down the pecking order, if you even think of it at all. So here’s your Sunday night reminder to take a little look at the way you talk to yourself, the way you criticise yourself, put yourself down and demotivate yourself. Would you ever speak that way to your best friend? If you wouldn’t why do it yourself?
Negative self-talk is so powerful – it can take you from a low mood to a foul mood in moments. However – being your own best friend can actually do the reverse in just seconds.
It takes practice and won’t come naturally but if you can make that your priority this week and then look back next Sunday I am sure you will feel better about yourself. More positive, happy, in a lighter mood. And the more you can manage to do it – the more that self love will become unconditional.
So this Sunday evening it’s time to start the practice… think about where you feel unhappy, and start from there… nurture yourself… look after yourself. After all – to be the best mum you can be – you have to put your own gas mask on first.
