How to Boost Your Self-Love in 7 Easy Steps

Last update: 11 January, 2017

Self-love is a very popular term, but it is not always well understood. Self-love is not an action, but rather a state in which you feel good about yourself. In this sense, it is important for your overall well-being. It influences the way you interact with others. It affects the image you project at work and the way you handle problems.

Self-love is a fundamental element for an individual well-being. But practicing self-love can be a challenge for many of us, especially during moments in which we face serious challenges. It is not about being narcissistic, but about getting in touch with yourself, with your well-being and your happiness.

What is self-love?

Self-love is not simply a state of feeling good that can be achieved by keeping up your image. Or through inspiring quotes or by spending quality time with your loved ones. Or even by delighting in the activities we enjoy in solitude. Despite how satisfying these and other activities may be, this is not self-love.

Self-love is a state of self-appreciation that grows from actions that support our physical and psychological health and stimulate our spiritual growth.

Self-love is dynamic. It grows through actions that make us mature. When we act in a way that we expand our self-love within us, we begin to better accept our weaknesses and strengths. Also, we feel less need to explain our deficiencies.
