What’s cookin’ good lookin’? I’d like to introduce everyone to Self-Love Mondays, a new series promoting ways that we can take care of ourselves mentally and physically. The concept of “One Love” is a universal love and respect for all people because we are all connected to each other. In spreading love to others, it’s easy for us to forget to love ourselves. Self-love is an important element of One Love. It’s impossible for you to love someone else if you don’t love yourself properly, first. Here are a couple tips on how you can get your self-love in:

  • Say “no”:
    Personally, a major source of stress for me is spreading myself too thin. When it comes down to it, we’re all people-pleasers. When you commit yourself to 94,105,862 projects and events at one time, you can get lost in the sauce as an individual. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to say no! You are not obligated to do anything if it means putting yourself last.
  • SLEEEEEEEEEEEEP:
    This tip sounds super basic but it cannot be emphasized enough. I know that we’re all busy
    people. Fitting in time to sleep can be difficult. However, it is imperative that you sleep. A lack of sleep over long periods of time can have terrible effects on your body. It can cause you to have major mood swings, a weakened immune system, and even hallucinations. Sleep deprivation can also kill creativity. So, while you’re over there calling yourself “grinding”, you’re actually dying a slow death. Eight hours of sleep per night is ideal, but if you can’t fit that in, at least aim for six hours per night.
  • Music can always put me in a better mood! Here are 10 songs to help you get through the week:
    1. Scuse Me by Lizzo
    2. God’s Plan by Drake
    3. Possibilities by FootsXColes
    4. Party Dawg by Sugg Savage
