30 Ways To Practice Self-Love

Right before New Years, I saw my friends boast on social media about how 2018 is dedicated to self-love. In a weird way, it felt inspiring because we were encouraging each other and wishing that 2018 brings us everything we need to persist.

Self-love is so important to achieve but its a journey. What will work for some, won’t work for others but eventually we figure out the steps to take and notice how it postively affects us.

Self-love is also one of my biggest goals this year and I plan on making some big changes in my life.

I put together a list of different examples that I discovered from my personal experience or common things my friends and peers noted that worked for them. Whether it only takes one step or it takes a lot of steps, it takes a short time or long, I hope that whoever reads this achieve self-love.

You deserve it.
