It is long established that February is the month of love. And with Valentine’s Day at the heart of this association, it is often associated with and remembered for loving others.
Whilst that is a beautiful sentiment in itself, as we head into March we’re challenging that narrative and putting self love first!
You deserve it. Your worth is not defined by having someone else in your life to love :)
Today we want to help you learn to love yourself! We’ll be sharing our top tips, tricks and tidbits to help you put yourself first. February might be a month of love, but here’s to loving ourselves all year long…
“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness” - Robert Morley
Habits to get into
Learn to focus on yourself with simple changes to your day:
- Stop being sedentary
- Limit your screen time, live life in the moment and not on the mobile
- Perfect your nighttime routine
- Prioritise yourself and learn to say no
Books to read
Changing your lifestyle and making new habits is easier said than done. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Taking time to read is a great way to wind down, especially if they’re helping you to love yourself:
You are a Badass - Jen Sincero
Stop doubting your greatness and start designing the life you want!
Beautiful You - Rosie Molinary
A 365-day plan to self love, a daily reminder to help you feel better about yourself.

Apps to download
Anyone can tell you to learn to love yourself. It’s harder to do it. Sometimes we need that reminder to do something, and these apps are a great way to remind ourselves:
If mindful meditation is the way forward, this is the app for you. With 2 to 3 minute meditations available, there is no excuse not to practice this at some point during the day.
The rise of adult colouring books, gone digital. For those times when taking an entire book and pencil case is not practical, relax with this easy to use app.
Let’s face it. Don’t we all use our notes app to free our minds from our daily ramblings… or is that just us? In any case, this app is a productive alternative, helping us learn to focus on the positives.
Your daily reminders
Last but not least, sometimes all we need is a daily reminder of how great we really are:
- It’s okay to make mistakes.
- It’s okay to let go of people.
- It’s okay to put yourself first.
