Happy Valentine’s Day!
Posted on 14/02/22
This year on Valentine’s Day we decided to promote self-love. 💌
What is self-love?
Loving yourself is more than just having positive self-esteem; it’s about truly accepting every bit of who you are. It’s being able to see ourselves as flawed, imperfect, but still be able to recognise our own value. A little different from the love we have for a partner, self-love is a skill that needs to be practised regularly. Remember to challenge yourself, care for yourself and celebrate yourself – because we all deserve that much.
Can we start with small habits of self-care?
Of course! There’s no magical recipe for self-love, and everyone finds their own path towards healthy mental health. However, there are small practices you can do every day to help you find your own way.
- Stop comparing yourself to others!
- Don’t worry so much about others’ opinions.
- Allow yourself to make mistakes.
- Remember your value doesn’t lie in how your body looks.
- Trust yourself to make good decisions for yourself.
- See the beauty in simple things._
- Try to enjoy small moments!
So today, for our Valentine’s Day surprise, DGHE we decided to give our students and staff members a small gift to remind everyone it’s important to enjoy small moments with ourselves. 🎁 We decorated our halls and gave all our staff a box of chocolates – just a token of our appreciation!
Self-love isn’t always easy, but it does get easier. We all struggle sometimes, and that’s ok too. 💕
