Coaches, teachers & gurus talk about it.
There’s training courses centered around it.
Hop on Instagram and you’ll find millions of gorgeous quotes on the topic.
Even Justin Bieber is crooning about it. (Well, kinda.)
Anywhere you look, you’ll find inspiring tips, techniques, quotes and teachings on Self Love.
People everywhere are sharing the message (including me!) and everyone has their own unique take on what it looks like, how to earn it and what to do daily to feel it.
The first thing you need to understand is that Self Love is a practice and there’s not just one way to do it, feel it or get it.
I believe learning to love yourself is a process and is something we need to focus on each day. Self Love is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets… and the stronger it is, the more others will notice.
You may not loooove every ounce of yourself every day. It’s okay. We all have insecurities and struggles.
We’re perfectly imperfect.
But the more you learn to love your body and your life, the gentler you’ll be on yourself when you are feeling flawed.
The sooner you’re able to reframe a negative thought into a loving one, the stronger your love for yourself will feel.
Since there’s an endless array of beautiful humans out there as passionate as I am about the subject, it can be difficult to decide who to listen to first. So I rounded up some my favorite experts to offer you the most inspiring Self Love advice I could find!
You don’t have to choose just one to “work on” today; weave them into your life as needed. There’s no “right way” to go about it.
That’s the beauty of learning to love yourself…
As long as you’re making it a habit, your love for your body and your life can only grow stronger.

So why is this so significant?
Learning to love yourself isn’t just a great day-to-day practice to help you feel good…
It’s good for your life in the long run – because in order to reach your goals, you have to love where you are now! You can accept where you are, but you don’t have to settle.
With over 10+ years of experience in behavior change, I’ll let you in on a little secret:
Positive and lasting change comes from a place of Self Love, not self hate.
Love wins. Every time.
Now… Go love yourself. <3
