No one's love will feel quite as perfect as the love you get from yourself. You are the deepest knower of your needs, and therefore the most supreme source of compassion and nurturing. You are so deserving of your own love and care. Here are 5 simple ways to give love to yourself, plus a collection of love-filled tools. Whether you're looking for a free practice or a splurge, there's something here for you.
Treat your mind to daily silence. Whether you can sit in silent meditation, work through something creative without noise or move without headphones, take whatever time you have to let your mind exist in silence once a day.
Bring your body outside. Being outside is the simplest way to cleanse and receive. Treat your body to this timeless gift.
Allow mystery to find space in your life. Notice when you resist the unknown. Remember the gifts you've received that had nothing to do with planning or control.
Pick a small area of your home to clean and organize. When you finish, light a candle and thank the space for all that it holds for you.
Send a love letter to someone who makes you feel safe and cared for. Tell them how grateful you are. This works beautifully as either a letter to someone else or to yourself.
