“I am enough. I approve of and love myself deeply”
Now those aren’t words you may tell yourself everyday… But you absolutely should! According to Good Therapy, “Research indicates that nearly 80% of our self talk is negative.” Repeating self affirmations and writing yourself a Self-Care Love Letter has the power to uplift your mood, reduce anxiety, and even increase your likelihood of success.
Science aside, you love hard and put others before your own needs. It’s time to give yourself the TLC you deserve. When was the last time you did something nice for yourself? Love Letter writing allows you to take a moment to pause, reflect, and appreciate how far you’ve come and even set goals for your future. We invite you to write yourself a Love Letter thanking yourself for all you have accomplished in the past 2 years and open it 2 months later.
Take care of yourself so you can take care of the ones you love! Knowing that you took the time to write yourself a handwritten note will warm their heart and put a big smile on your face. Expressing gratitude in a handwritten note stirs up positive emotions and well-being for both the letter-writer and the receiver (aka YOU).
If you’re reading this far, then you’ve probably caught on to how important writing yourself a Love Letter is and we couldn’t be more proud of you. Congratulations on taking this special moment to invest in you!
Self-care is like planting a flower. We need to be mindful of the little details and be patient. It might be hard to notice our growth between today and tomorrow. But in the long run, we will witness the miracle that happens in our body, mind, and soul. We invite you to write yourself a Self-Care Love Letter to reflect on your individual wellness journey with this mindful activity:
How To Write Yourself A Self-Care Love Letter
What You’ll Need:
Pen and paper (or if you have a sundays Self-Care Love Letter at home – even better!)
It’s time to appreciate you! Write down some positive things you want to say to yourself, just like how you would to your best friend or dear family member.
Stash your handwritten note somewhere safe like a top drawer or shoe-box. A place you will remember to go when you need a little pick me up.
2 months later, take your Self-Care Love Letter out of safe-keeping and celebrate how far you’ve come by reflecting on your individual wellness journey.
We’d be so grateful if you could share your Self-Care Love Letter with us or how it made you feel to write something kind to yourself 🙂
