Self-love is an essential component of a healthy and fulfilling life. It involves treating yourself with kindness, compassion, and respect, just as you would treat someone you love.
Following these 9 Self-Love practices will have you feeling more fulfilled and happy in no time:
#1 Prioritize Self-Care
Taking care of your physical and emotional needs is an act of self-love. Make time for activities that make you feel good, such as exercise, meditation, or reading...I love doing yoga.
#2 Practice Self-Compassion
Be gentle with yourself and practice self-compassion. Recognize that you are only human and that everyone makes mistakes. We want to be superwoman, but that's not a realistic expectation.
#3 Set Healthy Boundaries
It's important to set boundaries to protect your mental and emotional well-being. Say no when you need to, and don't feel guilty about it. It's really ok to say no.
#4 Practice Gratitude
Cultivate a sense of gratitude by focusing on the positive things in your life. Take time to appreciate the good things and express gratitude for them.
#5 Engage in Positive Self-Talk
Be kind and encouraging to yourself. Use positive affirmations to boost your self-confidence and remind yourself of your worth.
#6 Forgive Yourself
Let go of past mistakes and forgive yourself for any wrongdoings. Holding onto guilt and shame can be detrimental to your self-esteem.
#7 Surround Yourself with Positivity
Spend time with people who uplift and inspire you. Create an environment that is conducive to your well-being.
#8 Pursue Your Passions
Pursue the things that make you happy and bring you joy. Allow yourself to indulge in your hobbies and interests.
#9 Treat yourself
Do something nice for yourself. Whether it's buying yourself a small gift or taking a day off to relax, treat yourself to something that makes you happy.
So remember, self-love is crucial for your overall well-being. By practicing these nine ways to show self-love, you can cultivate a more positive and fulfilling life. And it's okay to prioritize yourself and to take care of YOUR needs. You are worthy of love and respect, and it starts with loving yourself.

Since what seems like the dawn of time, our parents have been telling us to take our vitamins every day, right? Well, turns out mom and dad knew what they were talking about. Taking supplements is a great way to help us feel our best as we age. Look for supplements that are formulated with unique antioxidants, and important vitamins and minerals specific for anti-aging support. One of my favorites is Tēgreen 97®. It's Green tea greatness. It's a highly concentrated extract of the antioxidants found naturally in green tea and helps promote long-term cellular health. This stuff has the antioxidant power of 7 cups of tea in each capsule.
Also, collagen is a protein found throughout our bodies, specifically in our skin, that helps our skin appear more youthful. But as we age, the production of collagen in our bodies slows down—1.5% less every year to be specific. Luckily, taking supplements can help replenish this depleting protein. And taking a product containing powerful collagen peptides, like Beauty Focus™ Collagen+, is a great solution because it is easy for the body to digest and absorb.
