Self-Care Tip: 5 Ways To Be Kind To Yourself

A small act of kindness can go a long way. A smile can brighten someones whole day. A thank you can make someone feel appreciated. And giving yourself some positive self-talk can completely change the way you feel about something. Kindness matters, especially being kind to yourself.

When the topic of being kind is discussed, it’s usually about a kindness someone else has done, or something you might have done for someone else. All types of kindness are important. Every single act of kindness (no matter who is doing it) helps spread more kindness. But in the process of being kind to others, are you also being kind to yourself?

You can be kind to yourself in many ways. In this post, I have listed 5 ways to show more kindness to yourself.

1. Positive Self-Talk is one of the biggest ways you can be kind to yourself. It can be easy to fall into the pattern of negative self-talk. In fact, you probably do it all the time, but may not even be aware of it. I challenge you to see if you can catch how you talk to yourself.

Are you being your own cheerleader? Are you giving yourself positive feedback? Are you being encouraging and compassionate? Are you forgiving yourself for past mistakes? I bet you say these kind of encouraging words to your friends and family all the time, so why not say them to yourself as well?

2. Do Something Nice For Yourself is a really great way to put yourself in a good mood. Maybe you deserve a nice massage? Or perhaps a new hair cut? What about a new outfit that makes you feel fabulous? Or maybe just an extra long soaking bath?

When you take the time to do something nice for yourself, you are showing kindness and love to a very special person––yourself. Isn’t that a beautiful thing?!

New Release: I Feel At Ease Knowing… A Guided Journal

Here is the sixth book in the Journaling to Feel Good Series. This journal topic felt like a natural progression to the series. Yes, it’s similar to the first book I Feel Peaceful Because…, but I think this sixth addition takes peacefulness a step further.

When we invite ease into our life, that brings us to a whole new level of peace, because we feel more relaxed and everything has the potential to feel effortless, instead of difficult or a struggle. I think that’s how life is supposed to be. It’s supposed to be easy. It’s supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be exciting and full of all the things we are passionate about.

Life gets hard when we think it has to be hard, but what if we flipped that script and believed in a life full of ease? Because doesn’t it feel good when we can feel true ease about something? And imagine having that feeling about everything, our whole life?

This journal can help make ease a more regular practice.

Here is the official book blurb…

Our emotions hold the key to a happy life. The better we feel, the better our life becomes around us. In life, we have learned many ways of not feeling well, but through consistently reaching for better feelings, we can rise above to something greater.

This guided journal is dedicated to finding the feeling of ease and other closely related emotions, which is a wonderful first step to cultivating a lasting life that is relaxed and deeply satisfied.

Journaling Prompts include the following… I feel at ease knowing, I feel relaxed when I, I feel satisfied because, I feel at peace doing, I feel relief having, I feel enjoyment because, I feel comfort thinking about.

Journal size is 6″ x 9″ with a glossy cover and cream colored pages inside.

Now available in Paperback and as a printable.

If you decide to give this journal try, please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Etsy. Thank you in advance!

New Release: The Daily Self Care Journal

Here it is The Daily Self Care Journal. I came up with idea for this around the first part of December. I wasn’t sure it would be completed and published in December, but I’m glad it was done for the new year. It’s a perfect way to get the year rolling.

This is not part of the Journaling to Feel Good Series. This is a standalone journal that can be used daily (or a few days a week).

It has six writing prompts each day that doesn’t change, but what does change is the affirmation written across the top of each page. I believe there are eight in total. One for a day, and then it rotates through them again. I find that repetition is always a good thing to help remember things that are important, and I believe these affirmations are really great foundation for a good self-care practice.

I’ve been using this journal for a couple of weeks now ( a proof copy), and I really like it as an addition to my journaling. I don’t use it every morning, but many of them. There are enough pages in this journal for a four month daily writing journal practice.

Here is the official book description…

Self-care is the ultimate expression of love. When we care about how we feel and give attention to ourselves in a regular and positive way, it opens ourselves up to a far richer and fulfilling life. This guided journal has positive affirmations and daily writing prompts to help bring awareness to the self and what is needed to realize our best life.

This journal is available in paperback on Amazon and as a printable on Etsy.

So if you are looking to start up or enhance your self-care for the new year, this is a great way to get that ball rolling!

If you try this journal, please consider leaving a review on whatever platform you purchase it on.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year and Some 2021 Resolutions!

It’s a new year! I’m so excited about all the new opportunities and possibilities a new year brings. Here’s to a new cycle of love, peace, abundance, and harmony for us all!

I have a few resolutions for 2021, and I thought I would share. The first is a big one. It’s something that 2020 really gave me a hard look at, and that was how much my life was full of a habit of fear. So I am starting a new year out with a dedication to retraining myself to have a habit of love instead.

So what does that mean exactly? It means being more gentle with myself, choosing to slow down or redirect my thoughts or attention to more loving things, situations, and outcomes. It means more positive self talk. Doing more things that feel good. Thinking good thoughts about others and situations, including envisioning good outcomes for all. And finding deeper connection with myself and others.

I have some ideas of things I can do to help that, but really I’ve already been putting new habits in place for a little while now. Habits like daily mediation, breath work, journaling, yoga, going for walks alone and sometimes with others, and just choosing fun and exciting things to focus on.

So I plan to continue these habits and be open to any new ones that might pop up. And also to tune in and see how I feel about anything before I act. If it feels too hard, then give it some space and try again.

I also want to make more journals! I love making journals. I love that creative process so much, and I already have a few ideas I can get started on over the next few weeks. I think I enjoy it so much because it’s a combination of several of my passions, which is writing, designing, and self improvement. And they have a quick turnaround. I really love being able to see a finished product in a short time from first conception of an idea. It’s great for boosting confidence too!
