S For Self-Love: A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies #StayMindfulWithMSN

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.

Mindfulness Challenge For The Day

Hug Yourself

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.”

– Oscar Wilde

  1. Yes indeed, self-love is a prerequisite for feeling love towards others. And self-love improves our self-respect. Nice list for improving self-love.

  2. Happiness comes in all forms; being ‘fine’ or ‘okay’ about not having a nice body or having frizzy hair or having dry skin IS NOT HAPPINESS. The ability to love yourself through and throughout is beautiful. Full acceptance of every aspect of our being will allow true happiness to be achieved. Love yourself and be happy with who you are. You wake up in the morning and what is the first voice you hear? YOURS. When you step in front of mirror or window and see a reflection…who’s in that reflection? YOU ARE. and you wants you to be able to smile and feel beautiful within more than anyone else in this world…. YOU. You are beautiful, inside and out, and you deserve to know that :’) Self love is very hard but it’s rewarding when you can build yourself up and have the world crashing down around you.

    I realized that I had always a choice. I could make poor choices out of fear, guilt, and shame or empowered choices that were aligned with who I was and what felt authentic to me. So, I stopped trying to please people, accommodating men unworthy of my attention, and doing things that didn’t bring me pleasure or satisfaction. When you start loving yourself more, you too will realize your wants and needs are important, and you have the choice to honor them. Self-love is an on-going conscious choice! When I started to practice consciously choosing myself over others, over damaging situations, over unfulfilling friendships and relationships, things changed dramatically.
