The Truth About Self-Love

February is full of love here at Soul Strong Yoga. And while we adore Valentine’s Day traditions (especially the chocolate), this month seems like the perfect chance to meditate on self-love. Self-love is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days. I can’t help but wonder if the reason self-love is trending might have something to do with our culture radically trying to counter its burnout. Too many of us are running on empty, overworked and tired. When we allow ourselves to continuously give without first filling our own cups, we hit a wall and may find ourselves running towards extreme self-care routines to make up for it. Ever felt overwhelmed at work only to leave the office and promptly hit up Target to pick up a new wardrobe of workout gear as a motivation to reshape your life? Well, what if I told you that self-love doesn’t have to be extreme to yield results? And that it doesn’t have to max out your credit card to be real. Self-love is something we cultivate inside of ourselves and it takes some work. It takes asking yourself some tough questions and prioritizing your well being in all ways- body, mind and spirit. Instead of unsustainable extremes and impulsive purchases, we can cultivate daily self-love through simple, daily acts of self-care.
