Self-Love Benefits for Enjoying a Happier, Healthier Life


Self-love can be considered a touchy subject. No one wants to talk about the importance of loving themselves. Why? Because it is perceived as conceit and arrogance. No one wants to hear “you can’t love another person until you love yourself.” Although I totally believe that sentiment, people still don’t want to hear about it. What if I were to tell you that creating a loving, respectful, nonjudgemental attitude towards yourself is probably one of the best things you can do to improve the quality of your life??

I can’t wait to tell you why!

The term ‘self-love’ is not only perceived as a state of feeling good, but it allows us to create a profound feeling of mindfulness in the way we appreciate ourselves in regard to our physical and spiritual growth. Even though you may not realize it how you are perceived by others plays an important part on how you interpret your own self-image. The majority of people allow the opinions of others to dictate how they think, which ultimately affects their results.

So, you remaining in a positive frame of mind will also be displayed in the way you treat others. With empathy and respect. When we have compassion for ourselves and can be nonjudgemental towards our own flaws and mistakes, it allows us the same opportunity to see other people’s shortcomings as well, with understanding. You see, self-love is not just about loving yourself, it is the positive habit patterns that are formed that you exhibit towards everyone else.

A great tip about self love is that you automatically choose to take better care of yourself in respect to nutrition, exercise, sleep, and healthy relationships. Self-love is also apparent when people who possess this trait know enough to walk away from events, challenges, or people that do not resonate with their way of thinking.

It is a mindful choice, a way of protecting yourself and not allowing negativity from others to pull you down. Self-love is displayed when you can consciously choose things that you need and yet at the same time feel centered and strong enough to automatically decline behavior that will only move you in a negative downward spiral. It is a beautiful, healthy state of mind that can and will lead to a life of success and happiness.

“Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other,
and in the process, we care for ourselves.”
– Diana, Princess of Wales
