7 reasons to show a little self compassion



Now that Valentines is over,  Good Vibes wants you all to take the time to give yourself some loving attention. Here are the 7 top reasons why you should love yourself a little more.

1. Self-love attracts love. If you're still looking for your perfect partner or nourishing friends, a little bit of self-love will help you attract what your are looking for. Confidence and love for yourself is infectious, and if you can't love yourself, why would anyone else spend time with you?

2. Look after yourself. Whether this means booking into classes to keep fit and mobile, eating food that nourishes you or getting out to walk in the fresh air -  a little dose of daily self care will help you to form lifelong good habits.

3. Love yourself and achieve more. Accepting ourselves for who we are will help get rid of toxic emotions like self-doubt, leaving you free to achieve the things that you really want without your inner chattering holding you back.

4. Find a 24/7 best friend in you. Nobody can really know you better than you know yourself, you are with you all 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! Loving yourself means you will enjoy your own company and never feel alone.

5. Love yourself and look younger. Live life with confidence and find the joy in everything that you do. Wearing a smile and being open will take years off your face.

6. Don't be a doormat. When we truly appreciate and love ourselves, we know and value our worth. Not letting people take advantage in our relationships will make your life happier and more fulfilling.

7. You are unique. There is only one you, you are 100% unique and there will never be anyone exactly like you,  celebrate your uniqueness and don't waste energy comparing yourself to others.
