Executive Voice


You shouldn’t just rely on other people to make you feel great about yourself. That’s why we believe that it is important to practice self-love.

When you stop to think about the people you love and how you would do anything to ensure that they are doing well, do you also think about yourself?

By practicing self-love, you are not being narcissistic or vain, you are making your needs a priority. By loving yourself you will start to believe in yourself and push yourself to achieve your goals.

Of course, it’s hard to know exactly where to start, so we’ve put together five ways you can practice self-love to help you become the best version of you, yourself.

Create a positive morning routine

The way you start your day can have a knock-on effect of how the rest of your day will go. Your routine could start with getting up and making a list of goals for the day. Our Just Us journal is a great way to track your goals, moods and exercise each day. Make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, take a deep breath and start your day.

It is always a good idea to avoid checking your phone as soon as you wake up as it pulls on your brain for attention, which can increase your stress levels throughout the day.

Stop comparing yourself to others

We are all unique and great in our own ways. We all have different bodies, personalities, coping mechanisms and even different ways of measuring success. If you find yourself constantly comparing your life or your body to people you see online, you need to stop following them, or even take a complete break from social media.

It is important to focus on yourself and acknowledge that you are doing the best you can and that is enough. You should be your only competition in life.

Celebrate small wins

As we said before, everybody has their own way of measuring success. You don’t need to do something big like get a new job to be proud of yourself. For some people, a ‘win’ could count as getting dressed before 12pm or making your bed a few days in a row.

It is important that you celebrate all types of wins to help you stay positive and to gain confidence in your actions.

Energize your body

Take part in our weekly track & share club to keep yourself active and on track while getting support from us and other amazing women. Your body does so much for you, so you should try to give back by moving it and filling it up with nutritional food.

You don’t need to be running marathons to keep yourself energized, choose a way of keeping active that makes you feel happy and healthy without putting any pressure on yourself.

Take time to unwind

Of course, if you are starting your day on a positive note then you should also end it the same way. Take a few minutes of each day to switch your mind off, doing this can benefit your well-being and your sleeping patterns. You could have a cup of tea, run a bath, do some face masks or read a book – the possibilities are endless!

At Just Us, we rise by lifting others. But, remember to lift yourself too.
