“One day you’ll wake up at 11:30am on a Sunday morning with the love of your life and you’ll make some pancakes and coffee and it’ll all be alright.”
A new week is coming and I wanted to create a list of how to empower yourself and improve your mental health. This is a really super duper important topic to me because I know so many people struggle with this and don’t even realize it. If you’re aware of these issues and want to learn how to tackle them, I think that’s amazing! I’m so glad that you’ve come here to find help. Even if you’re just here to learn more about improving your mental health, that’s great because everyone needs a bit of the empowerment kick! So let’s start our week off right, with a well equipped mindset by getting to know our worth and realizing that we are awesome individuals!
1. Lather Yourself in Affirmations
Affirmations were so not my thing a while ago. When I tried it and started believing it, I saw everything I ever wanted in my life being checked on my list one at a time! Remind yourself of who you are, your strengths, your abilities, what you want and your worth.
2. Be consistent
Love yourself everyday, all day. Recite your affirmations everyday, all day, at least once a day.
I learnt this from Jeannie Mai. If you’re ever feeling down, get up, get dressed and put on a red lip. Why? Because when you look good, you feel good! Hence the wear-apy, therapy!
4. Speak healing to yourself
Be aware of your thoughts and force yourself to think positive. Speak healing to yourself. If you’re bringing yourself down or thinking of your sucky past, stop yourself in the act. Remind yourself that you have so much more to be grateful for!
5. Know your worth
Loving yourself does not mean you’re egotistical. There’s a huge difference. If someone is treating you badly, you have every right to say no and put a stop to it. Learn to know your worth and who deserves to stay in your life and who doesn’t.
6. Stop comparing
I tell myself all the time, “My differences are my biggest advantage.” So there’s no need to compare your life to someone else’s when the only competition you’ve got is looking back at you in the mirror.
7. Love yourself
Like your the only you in the world, because you are uniquely you.
8. Let things go
What happened today won’t matter in a few years. Who hurt you yesterday won’t matter in a few months. The person you were before, doesn’t matter. Let it go.
I hope this article has helped you to feel more empowered and take on the week ahead with a smile! Until tomorrow – Ps: Don’t forget to Subscribe.
