Love Yourself to Excellent Health

We often express our love to family, friends and significant others but forget

to include ourselves, which can weaken the immune system and make us more

susceptible to illness and disease. When we love and respect ourselves, we

tend to eat healthier foods and make better lifestyle choices that promote

good physical and mental health. Physical, emotional and mental health have

been closely linked to each other, so by loving the self, it creates a positive


A positive attitude is also a large factor in maintaining good health. Our

beliefs and thoughts are wired into our biology. They become our cells, tissues

and organs. There's no supplement, no diet, no medicine and no exercise

regimen that can compare to the power of our thoughts and beliefs.

Cultivating self-love and positive perceptions can be done in a number of

ways. Here are a few techniques that will help change your life:

  • Make your health a priority. Nourish your body with nutritious foods,

exercise regularly, stretch and pamper your mind, body & soul. Let go of your

thoughts on what you envision as imperfections. Instead focus on the things

you like about you!

  • Protect yourself. Maintain a healthy perspective toward people that drain

you mentally and physically. Take whatever measures necessary to protect

yourself against the negative effects they might have on you.

  • Learn that it’s okay to say NO. We often create unneeded stress in our lives

by saying yes to things when we haven't given ourselves time to recharge from

our daily lives. We also say yes to things that aren't in alignment with our

highest good. It is okay to say NO to anything or anyone that drains us and

makes us see the world negatively.

  • Forgive yourself. You aren't perfect and that is perfectly okay. Remember

that nobody is perfect. Before you can love yourself, you must forgive yourself

and love yourself exactly as you are, flaws and all.

  • Have an attitude of gratitude. Make a list of things about yourself and your

life that you are grateful for. Appreciate your uniqueness and you will learn to

love yourself.
