Self-healing is the process of taking care of yourself, your emotional and physical needs. It’s about developing a balance between your mind, body, and spirit. When you are in a state of health and balance, you can deal with the ups and downs of life much better. You feel more grounded, happy and at peace.
Although it may seem counterintuitive, practising self-healing techniques essentially allows you to reach higher levels of productivity because it gives you time for yourself to rest and recharge. Not only does it give you more energy for the things that matter most in your life, but it also helps you prevent burnout.
Self-healing is a complex process that is still poorly understood by modern science. However, it’s a known fact that positive emotions and experiences help us cope with daily stress and negative emotions, so self-healing can be a powerful tool to live a more productive and happier life.
Accept yourself completely
Self-acceptance is the key to self-love, and this is the first step on our path to healing as well. We need to accept we are not perfect, acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses and be okay with that.
It’s hard to accept yourself when you feel you have flaws, but on the other hand, it’s more than likely that these “flaws” are just a part of your personality. Accepting yourself means
accepting all the different versions of you – the past, present, future ones as well. Each version of you has something unique to offer, and it’s up to you how you want to embrace it. The fact that we always want more than we can achieve makes us put ourselves down, but if we could find peace within ourselves and embrace what we already have going for us, we could love ourselves more easily.
Acceptance is not a passive thing, though. It means that you take responsibility for your happiness instead of placing the blame elsewhere when things go wrong. If you’re happy with who you are, it’s easier to change even if that change involves accepting yourself as you are now and changing your actions.
Giving up is not an option
Have you ever thought of a dream job, something that would make you feel truly happy and fulfilled? How many of those big dreams have you given up on in the last year? In the last decade?
It’s easier to give up on a goal than to achieve it. We always believe there’s something more important to do. We have other more important things to do and then time passes, and we realize that we are no longer able to catch up with yesterday.
And how often do we start something new and then give it up because it’s getting harder than we expected it would be?
When we make promises and don’t keep them, we feel bad about ourselves because we don’t feel we can control our lives.
And this is not a good attitude, because you won’t be able to fulfil your dreams if you don’t believe in yourself. So make promises to yourself, then keep them!
Take care of yourself
It is significant to satisfy yourself. Create little rituals that will relax you. It can be a warm bubble bath after an exhausting day, going to the hairdresser or makeup artist. The fact is you need to feel good and comfortable in your skin. You will surely feel better when you put on an elegant dress, make a bun and put on lash extensions, and so you go to a restaurant where they serve delicious food. You need to afford it at least once a month and celebrate small successes.
Taking care of yourself also requires taking care of your health. Go to check-ups regularly and take care of your diet. Try to exercise regularly and establish healthy habits that will help you look and feel better.
Surround yourself with optimistic people
It is natural to feel down, sad and depressed when you are going through a bad phase. It is also normal to feel shattered, defeated and hopeless when you face failures in life.
But the important thing here is that how you overcome the emotional breakdowns and the barriers that life throws in your way. And it requires lots of self-control, motivation and courage to overcome these breakdowns and barriers. Self-healing can be aided by talking with people about your troubles, depressions, and negative ideas. You heal from the breakdowns you are going through whenever you feel this action gives you immense support to help.
Positive friends may provide you with advice or comforting words that can make a tremendous impact. Spending time with them will make you feel better and more optimistic.
Create a life balance
Maintaining the harmony of your life is the key to blissful self-healing. It is very important to have a balance in every sphere of your life to live a healthy and happy life.
Self-healing can be very easily achieved when you are in a peaceful state of mind. If you are unable to get rid of unwanted thoughts, it may affect your health badly. Self-healing will be impossible for an unhealthy mind and body.
As human beings, we all need some attention and care. We all have something which makes us unique and beautiful. We have to respect our differences and not judge anyone for whatever reason.
Everyone deserves to love and affection for who they are. We should not try to change each other but accept the people as they are. It is all about loving ourselves first before loving others.
