February is the month of love, and there's no better place to start than with YOU!
We've compiled a few of our favorite tips for practicing self love during the month of February, and all year long.
Positive Affirmations: If you want to add a routine that's good for your mental health, try daily positive affirmations which have been shown to increase self esteem and overall mental well being.
Create a Mood Boosting Playlist: Load it up with your favorites tunes that are sure to give you a lift.
Don't Compare Yourself to Others: You are unique in your own beautiful way, remember that.
Know when to Say "No": We often take on too much in our lives and become overwhelmed. A simple "no" can be a decision that brings positive change to your daily life.
Plan time for something you love: Whether it's taking a walk, playing with a dog, getting pampered, or listening to your favorite music, these things often get pushed to the back burner for other seemingly more important tasks. Prioritize yourself by prioritizing these tasks.
Lean on Others: Identify your support system and lean on them when in need. If you or a loved one are struggling with recovery and need that support system, our Peer Recovery Specialists are here for you. Contact one today, call/text 701-653-4221.
