It’s the month of love and that means we are going to focus on everything LOVE for the next few weeks.

It’s time to love yourself harder Babe! For the record, incase you haven’t gotten the memo, “self-love” is one of the most important aspects of our lives. If you haven’t reached your goals, maybe it’s because you aren’t loving yourself hard enough.

Practicing self-acceptance (the willingness to accept who and what you are without judgment) marks the very beginning of your ultimate self-love journey. I want you to accept you for all that you are and all that you aren’t. When you truly accept and start to love yourself HARD, that is when you will experience positive and real-life changes in your life and body.

In the world we are living in, there is too much negative self-talk. People are so quick to compare themselves with others and love themselves less. I want to change that right now. I want you to start loving every ounce of who you are on every level.  You are worth it and it all starts with you.

Over the course of the next four weeks, I will be sharing powerful tools, tips, and tactics that will step up your self-love game. I hope you are ready to start honoring, loving and respecting yourself like the beautiful person you already are!

Love Lesson #1. Find something you love about yourself daily.
Every day I want you to find something that you love about yourself. This may be challenging at first although will soon become something you just do, like brushing your teeth. Every morning, make it a ritual to find one thing you love about yourself. Say to yourselves “Today I love  ________ about me”. It can be anything from a body part to the way you handled a situation to a trait. Whatever it is, own something about you that you are proud of! Allow that initial self-love to be what guides you throughout the day. When you find yourself engaging in negative self-talk, go back to your daily love mantra and allow that to be your focus.

Let’s practice our first lesson. What is one thing you love about yourself?

Love lesson #2. Remove ‘’But’’ from your vocabulary
Please don’t let the positive get overshadowed by the negative. Whenever you use but you are hindering your love game. The word “but” comes with  uncertainty and lacks confidence.   I want you to be confident in your acts of self-love.  When you say “I love _____ about myself please don’t follow it with a but! Remove “but” from your vocabulary and be confident in your skin.

Love Less #3. Do not compare yourself to others! YOU vs YOU Babe!
This is a big one so please take this one to the grave. Stop comparing yourself to others. There is NO reason to waste unnecessary energy on comparing yourself to someone else. We all have our own story and journeys that cannot be compared to one another.  All that matters is that YOU are a better version of YOU every day. Compare yourself to the person you were yesterday. You vs. You, that is your only competition and that is your daily mantra!

Love Lesson #4. Stop Accepting your Negative Thoughts
You hear time and time again that your thoughts become your reality. This cannot be closer to the truth. Negative self-talk does nothing but hinder your results and damage our self-worth on a very subconscious level. Your thoughts have power so be sure that your thoughts are only those that will serve you and bring you up, rather than tear you down.

Imagine your mind is a typewriter. If a negative thought enters your mind, simply erase that thought and replace it with a positive thought that will bring you joy.
