February is no doubt focused on relationships and love.

And while our bonds with family and friends need attention and nourishment, we often forget something crucial. The relationship we have with ourselves is more important than any other in our lives.

So, how do you treat yourself? How do you speak to yourself?

These are essential questions and they matter enormously in the big picture of our lives.

So, today, here are four quick tips to strengthen the love and commitment you give yourself. All of these actions build confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth. Why not give them a shot?

1. Repeat Affirmations

The way we speak to ourselves dictates our beliefs and ultimately our actions.

First, find free self-love affirmations and repeat them every morning in front of the mirror. Put positive feeling behind them and before you know it, you'll believe what you're saying with every ounce of your being.

2. Take a Self-love Challenge

That's right, put your love first. Check out this 30-day love yourself challenge and take part in actions such as changing your environment, finding what you love about your life, and thanking your body. Get a free printable too!

3. Decide on New Boundaries

When was the last time you said no?

Often, we get so caught up in pleasing people that we forget that our time and resources matter too. So, in February, make it a goal to say no to several things that you don't want to do. Value yourself!

4. Schedule in Self-Care

And finally, schedule in daily and weekly self-care this month. Perhaps this is working out, reading, journaling, or meditating. Either way, make it a non-negotiable meeting with yourself and you'll be surprised at how much better you feel. 

In Conclusion

Self-love is underrated in our tough love society. Sometimes, we think being hard on ourselves is the way ahead. But, consider that giving yourself love allows for you to better love others. And put your best self forward.
