Learn to love your flaws


Loving yourself – flaws and all – is the hardest and most crucial milestone. So be kind and know you’re enough.

Embrace your quirks

You are one of seven billion perfectly imperfect humans! So they’ll always be someone better-looking or smarter.

Give up the need for approval

People will always talk whether you’re doing good or bad, don’t let them deter you.

Accept yourself:

The good, the bad and the jiggly – all of it – appreciate yourself as a whole person.

Be gentle with yourself

Forgive yourself for mistakes, and don’t put so much pressure on yourself.

Honour your needs

Listen to your body - Do you need a day off from work? Maybe a long hot bath? Some pampering? Then do it. Learn to be selfish.

Do something you’re good at

If you love to cook, then cook! If you love to run, grab those sneakers, head outside and run for your life.

Surround yourself with positive people only

These are the people who love and remind you how amazing you are.

Stop comparing yourself to others:

This is you cheating yourself of your joy, don’t fall into that trap.
