Most of us by now have been quarantined for about 3-4 weeks. I know I am going a bit stir-crazy. So this morning I decided to make a game out of this to focus on more positive things!
What better way to incorporate self-care, self-love and witchy things than with a game of bingo?
I also know a lot of people are struggling with mental health issues more so now than ever, I think it’s because we are home more and have a lot more time to dwell on “the negative” of things.
You are always listening so be kind to yourself.
Be nice to yourself. It’s hard to be happy when someone is mean to you all the time.
Time to start loving yourself.
Creating a meaningful, inner relationship with yourself has wonderful and beautiful benefits.
Self-love pushes you to take care of your own wants, needs and desires. Life moves so quickly, we tend to forget to care about ourselves; we tend to push ourselves to the back of the line.
When we forget about ourselves, we tend to start feeling poorly about things. We begin to see flaws and then we start picking ourselves apart. The negative self-talk begins, we spiral out of control, our moods plummet, and then we feel blah. Feeling “blah” is never a good thing.
By taking some time in our lives to love ourselves, it can help create self-confidence, self-esteem and passion for life! However, in the process of discovering one’s self it does not mean we push aside those that truly love us.
To start loving yourself, imagine how you treat yourself on a daily basis. View yourself as if you were another person in a relationship with you. Remember to be kind, forgiving, and loving. Self-love also includes things like getting proper sleep, proper nutrition, exercise, and healthy social interactions with friends, co-workers, and family members…even if that means we are doing it via video chat during this difficult time.
Self-love is very difficult for most people, but with anything time and practice will only show improvements. Keep practicing and use this game of BINGO to help guide you down the self care path. Enjoy and blessed be!
