5. Heal – from within!
Do you have a stressful job? Getting recurring migraines and insomnia? Maybe you just need to slow down a little. According to Psychology Today, Acupuncture releases endorphins, and activates natural pain killers. Hence, ramping up your immune system, while improving your ability to concentrate.
Loving yourself takes practice and a strong resolution. It’s the willingness to pick yourself up when life throws you a curve-ball. Even when you’re hurting from past relationships, lifting yourself up as if you truly were your own best friend. It’s reminding yourself how strong you are.
Breathe and sit patiently instead of raiding the refrigerator. To love yourself is to whisper into your heart, “I love you always,” as you gently coax yourself to take the next right action in the mystery of your precious life.
If you are ready to love someone else, Kiple’s got you covered with beautiful Valentine’s Day ideas that won’t burn a hole in your wallet as well.
