Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies
The nineteenth letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is S. S is for Self-Love.
Self-love is to “love of self” or “regard for one’s own happiness or advantage”. It is the process of accepting yourself for who you are and committing to promote your own happiness and peace.
“Self-love, self-respect, self-worth: There’s a reason they all start with ‘self.’ You can’t find them in anyone else.” ~Unknown
Everyone needs love. I too love and love being loved. But I was a person who suffered depression, self-pity, and self-rejection earlier. I begged for love from people around me without realizing that self-love is the best love and foremost one. Without self-love, you can not love others and cannot be loved by others too. It is the building block of mindfulness palace.
The acceptance of yourself leads to inner peace and lifelong happiness.

Mindfulness Challenge For The Day
This is my favorite self-love exercise. I feel fantastic by hugging myself. So give a mindful hug to yourself today. Reach your hands as far as possible and hug yourself lovingly. Hold your hugging for a minute or two while repeating ‘I love you’ and really feeling it.
“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
