Self Love: The Importance of Consciously Valuing You

Self-love is a relatively new concept. Until fairly recently, the idea that selflessness is best has reigned supreme. Many carry around a vague notion of unworthiness (sometimes unconsciously) and we attempt to prove our worthiness to both ourselves and others through altruistic pursuits. Putting others first is considered noble, while pleasing oneself is often seen as inconsiderate, indulgent, narcissistic or thoughtless. The burning shame of hearing the words “you’re selfish!” from someone whose opinion we care about is something not easily forgotten. I have heard these mortifying words in the past, and I was left bewildered, wondering how someone who I held in such high esteem could not recognise the consideration I had for them.

8 Reasons Why I Have Hope For Our World and You Should Too

It’s hard to deny that things are becoming increasingly challenging here on Earth. Many of us are struggling through economic hardships comparable to that of theGreat Depression, while others live every day in fear for their life as the place that they call home is now an active war zone.

5 Simple Ways to Be Spiritual Every Day

5 Simple Ways to Be Spiritual Every Day

You may find it challenging to balance your joy-seeking side with your human side, however, the good news is that we don’t have to choose between our spiritual selves and our human selves, we just have to choose between what brings us joy and what brings us misery.

Who Thinks Your Thoughts?

Many people like to imagine how they would have responded differently to an unpleasant scenario: perhaps some pithy and scathing repartee to put the aggressor in their place, or some supremely composed nonchalance in the face of adversity. But these mental re-hashings and rehearsals have several negative effects, including: further encouraging sloppy, undisciplined and counterproductive thinking; distracting us from the present, wasting our time and energy; and the internally generated fight-or-flight stress response needlessly releases more cortisol into our blood, aging us even faster and suppressing our immune systems)—even though the moment has passed.
