Creating a ritual can help keep your self love routines on track

Know that your body is a loving vessel...

Treating your body like a loving vessel will boost not only your self-love but also your energy. Be intentional about what you put into your body, not because you want to look good but because you want to feel good. Feeding your body nutrient-rich foods will have you emanating love out of every pore.

Make a "What's Working for Me" list....

Truly loving yourself comes from self-acceptance. One helpful step towards self-acceptance is recognizing what you're grateful for by writing a "What's Working for Me" list. Once you see it on paper and accept all of the positivity in your life, it will make it that much easier to love yourself.

Don't compare yourself to others on social media....

We've all done it; browsed through social media only to see our favorite media personalities in the middle of a photoshoot for their new books, just after they had awesome shopping sprees and right before the post about their engagements. WHAT?! It may seem like they're perfect, but remember, these positive pics on the Internet don't always tell the whole story, everyone — yes, everyone — has bad days.

We all have unique ways of loving ourselves and that's okay

Do something you're good at....

If this isn’t the ultimate self-esteem booster, I don’t know what is! Self-esteem and self-love often go hand in hand, and participating in a hobby you're good at will not only boost your endorphins but will bring out the best version of you. If you love to cook, then cook! If you love to run, then grab those sneakers, head outside, and run.

Find your happy place....

Think of a place that makes it simple to just be. Sit quietly and embrace the here and now, not thinking about what's due at work or what bills need to be paid. Light your favorite scented candle and just be in the moment. Allow yourself to relax.

Build your letting-go muscle....

We're constantly holding onto things in our past, which can weigh heavy on our souls and even give us low self-esteem. The more blocks we clear, the more we can really live big in the area of self-love. Although the process of letting go may hurt, it's vital for moving forward and reaching optimal self-acceptance and loving who we are.
