One thing I keep hearing a lot lately is “making time for self care”. This IMO is non-negotiable and is something that can be expressed in so many ways. For me, this includes Yoga, meditation, and working on myself mentally. If you’re someone who needs a little self compassion then I have created a 25 minute class called Yoga flow for self love.

Yoga flow for Self Love
Why self love? Right now we’re all being super hard on ourselves. We’re “should-ing” on ourselves. I know because I’ve dealt with it too. My inner voice telling me I shouldn’t be binge watching the Twilight Series on Amazon. Instead, I should be making videos, doing zoom classes, or working on more blog post promotion.
However, sometimes all the things we “should” be doing get pushed aside for our current mood, and events. We have to accept that it’s ok to not be constantly busy. That we need time to rest and reset. It’s an important part of taking care of the most important person in our lives – ourselves!
Unfortunately self love, self care, self compassion all get lumped into one category for many of us: selfish. When in reality it’s self-less. If we take care of our needs first, then we are more able to take care of the needs of others. By developing self awareness and learning to love ourselves we can open our hearts to giving and receiving love from others.
It’s not selfish or self-centered to work on self love. Frankly, if more people worked on their own insecurities and happiness the World would be a much happier place.
Try this 25 minute practice for self love. Notice the emotions and feelings that arise as you give yourself a hug. You are worthy of love. Become a vessel of love and compassion. First, for yourself. And then, for others.
