Self worth is so vital to your happiness. If you don’t feel good about you, it’s hard to feel good about anything else.

How to be your own best friend

1. Treat yourself the way you would treat a person who you loved, highly valued, and cared about.

2. Always love yourself – no matter what!

3. Only say positive, compassionate, understanding and affirming things about, and to, yourself.

4. Hold your own hand in tough and stressful times. Don’t abandon yourself, or let yourself down.

5. Respect yourself, and the efforts that you’re making to be a better person, and to change and to grow.

6. Understand your limitations, be patient with yourself. Accept that it takes time to master anything at all.

7. Be kind to yourself when you feel self-critical, or you want to be judgmental and hard on yourself.

I didn’t want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that’s really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you’re so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare.

How to Blow Away the Blahs

1. Try and remove a few things from your schedule so you have more time to relax and chill.

2. Write down your feelings on a piece of paper, then rip it into pieces or burn the bit of paper.

3. Express how you feel in a creative way such as painting a picture or writing a song.

4. Listen to your favorite music – but make sure it’s something that helps you to relax. Listening to sad songs can have the opposite effect.

5. Cut back on junk food, stimulants and alcohol.

6. Go easy on yourself. Don’t be harsh and unforgiving. Instead, notice small improvements and think of things to praise.

7. Make an effort with your appearance – as looking good can really change the way we feel.

8. Actively search out things to make you smile – see a funny movie or talk to a friend who is almost guaranteed to make you laugh or smile.

9. Do something special, and treat yourself well. For example, go out for a meal, book some tickets for a show, arrange to do something with friends or go and splash out on new clothes.

10. Be generous to others – share your money or your time, pay others compliments or try to make them smile!
