Loving yourself is about putting yourself first, even when others demand your attention. It’s recognizing your strengths, flaws, and imperfections and still holding yourself in the highest regard. It’s making a mistake, picking yourself back up, growing from that experience, and refusing to carry any embarrassment or shame with you as you continue your journey. Self-love is about having the courage to experience new things and pursue your dreams. It’s also about saying no to certain things so you can say yes to other things that are in your highest good. Here are eight heart-warming self-care journaling prompts to show yourself self-love:

  1. What are your three best qualities?
  2. Make a list of 10 things that make you smile.
  3. What do you love about life?
  4. What are you proud of yourself for?
  5. Name an action you can take right now that your future self will thank you for.
  6. Write a positive letter of advice to your future self.
  7. Write down five nice things people have said about you recently.
  8. What three self-care activities bring you feelings of joy and calm?
