24 Sweet Acts of Self Love: Advent Calendar

Looooong story short: This year I’m being way more intentional with my Christmas gifts. I guess I’ve gone back to basics and rather than give you a sugary calorific chocolate advent calendar…

I’m sharing a self loving calendar with you instead ❤

Christmas Day

Practise one self loving act each day in the run up to Christmas (and beyond) and show yourself some much needed love. God knows you deserve it!

I’m a day out, so let’s get started!

2nd December 2020

When was the last time you did something just for fun? Feed the ducks, run in the rain, jump in puddles. Write, read, paint, dance or sing! Do it for the fun factor.

Write down three (3) things you are grateful for .

4th December 2020

Say “no” without explaining yourself.

5th December 2020

Say “Yes” to something you would normally say “No” (out of fear) to.

6th December 2020

Start your day, completely free from distraction. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes. No phone. No TV. Find a space and just be.

Tomorrow isn’t promised.

Reach out to someone you love and tell them how much they mean to you.

Put your phone away and spend some time in nature today. Whether near water, woods, forest. Be at one with…her!

End any relationship that makes you feel like you are unworthy. It will hurt like hell to begin with…but you’re heal.

Unplug for as long as you can, switch off your phone and don’t open any emails or switch on the TV. Enjoy being completely distraction free.

Smile at yourself every time you glance at yourself in the mirror. Go on, say something nice back.

17th December 2020

It’s inspiration day: Listen to an inspiring podcast, read something that inspires you or watch an inspiring movie.

Get dressed in your favourite outfit and put on your best tracks and dance like no one is watching!

21st December 2020

When someone pays you a compliment. Own it! Don’t counteract their compliment by giving one back, shrugging it off or ignore it. Bask it in and simply say “Thank you!”

22nd December 2020

What did you love doing as a child? Pick one activity you really enjoyed and spend some time today doing exactly that!

23rd December 2020

Grab a pen and a piece of paper and write down anything and everything that comes to mind for at least 30 minutes. Don’t hold back!

24th December 2020

Run yourself a bath, add salts and flower petals to the water. Light candles, play soft relaxing music and have a long soak. You deserve it.

25th December 2020

Merry Christmas ❤

Have a lovely week and do let me know which is your favourite self loving act.
