Love Yourself More in 2020

The long month of January is almost over, Blue Monday has been and gone and Valentine’s Day is now on the horizon. Who said Valentine’s Day was only for sharing the love with your other half?

With so much going on in the world around us, it can be easy to forget to self-love. Whether you’re in a committed relationship or living the single life, the run-up to Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to take some time working on loving yourself more. Why? Because being compassionate towards yourself is very valuable. If you choose to jump into a journey of self-loving, you can reap benefits such as greater emotional strength and decreased stress - two things that can greatly contribute to your general happiness and wellbeing.

Don’t know where to start? We’re here to help you discover 3 ways in which you can appreciate yourself more in 2020.


1. Be Mindful

Yes, we know mindfulness has been a buzz word for quite some time now - but for good reason, we promise! Mindfulness is about being present in the current moment, and being aware of your thoughts and feelings at that moment without judgement or distraction.

It could be as simple as taking a quick break from what you’re doing and taking a slow breath in and out with your eyes closed to bring yourself back to the present. This can be especially helpful when dealing with a stressful situation or moments you are experiencing anxiety.

If you are struggling with what mindfulness means, or how you can implement it into your day, Garmin smartwatches have a downloadable ‘Mindful Moments’ app which delivers reminders to take a breath and centre yourself in the present moment.


2. Practice Self Care

One could write a whole book in itself about finding your purpose in life, but it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you might think. Knowing your purpose could span from creating a life purpose statement, such as ‘inspire and empower people to become the best version of themselves every day’ to finding a daily purpose to help you get through each day; this could be as simple as just surviving the day and whatever it throws at you.

Most of us carry out self-care every day, whether it be taking a shower or cooking yourself a wholesome meal. Looking after yourself may seem like a simple task, but taking some extra time to be mindful of your own self-care and how you can improve could have a great impact on your general happiness. Self-care tasks may include:

  • Getting outside to get some fresh and vitamin D
  • Making sleep a priority and making sure you get your 7-8 hours
  • Laughing at the little things in life (after all, laughting is the best medicine)
  • Spending time with those that you love
  • Exercising regularly to improve your physical health and in turn your mental health
