A Simple Way to Have a Better Relationship with Yourself

Relationship with self | Self-care | Self-development

Daily practices to help you feel better, sleep better and, most importantly, strengthen your relationship with yourself. 

As soon as you get up:

Sit still for a few minutes

Take a few breaths. Box breathing is always good: breathe in for four counts, breathe out for four, and relax for four. Do this a few times.

Then ask yourself: How am I feeling physically? Acknowledge any aches and pains.

Then ask yourself: How am I feeling mentally? Acknowledge how you are in your mind. Acknowledge your mind

Then ask yourself: How am I feeling emotionally? Acknowledge the emotions that arise.

Set your mind, body and emotions good intentions for the day ahead.

Before you go to bed:

Repeat the same before going to bed and set your mind, body and emotions good intentions for a restful night

Congratulate yourself on one thing you felt you did well today.

Be grateful for 3 things in your day. They don’t have to be big things.

If you had a bad day or bad situations in your day, ask: What can I learn from that? What can I do differently next time? Always with kindness to yourself.

    I swear by these practices. Box breathing has been my saviour when I’ve had anxiety attacks. Then every night, before bed I write down the highlight of my day in a journal. Remembering the high of the day clears my mind of all the stress and worry and makes me focus on something positive, meaning I can go to bed with a smile. Jo x
