Earlier this month, we gave you some foundational tips on the importance of positive self-talk. Today, we’re offering you a practical way to get started. We believe one of the best ways to establish a loving relationship with you is to foster healthy communication with yourself. Whether you journal, practice affirmations in the mirror, or randomly getting lost in your daydreams — we encourage you to talk to yourself about things other than your to-do list. We curated this thought-provoking list of self-love prompts that will get you reflecting on the amazing attributes that make you. We hope they make you fall in love with yourself all the more!
