28 Ways to Fill Yourself with Love!

  1. Write down 28 things about yourself that you are grateful for—just about you and what’s going on in your life right now. “I am grateful for my patience…that I made someone laugh today…that I can smile at strangers…that I’m healthy…smart…”
  2. Meditate ten minutes a day, imaging sunshine filling every part of your being and shooting outward.
  3. Whatever your version of God or universal goodness, ask to be filled with so much love that it pushes all negative thoughts from your mind. Do this every morning.
  4. Drink half your weight in water every day this month. It will change your energy and alertness if you haven’t been doing this. Make it special with some lemon, cucumber or a favorite infusion.
  5. Get a pedicure and request extra massage.
  6. By a pure essential oil and keep it on hand to sniff when you are tired or stressed.
  7. Light some extra candles (real or fake) in your living room and create a cozy ambiance, even if it is just for you!
  8. Buy a new soft, snuggly blanket for reading. Or wash your favorite one and warm it up in the dryer before snuggling. Need a short romance fix? Check out the holiday novella, “The Time Keeper” (Chance to win below.)

  17. Buy yourself some flowers to brighten your favorite space.
  18. Call an old best friend you haven’t spoken to in a while and tell her a few great things about her that you appreciate. If she wants to remind you of how awesome you are too, say: Thank you, I needed that! But, you know–birds of a feather…”
  19. Spend an entire afternoon or evening with a book and your favorite beverage.
