Often there comes a time in life when you miss the person that you used to be. Maybe you have noticed that you have become more quiet and withdrawn, or maybe you have become more pessimistic.

This is normal and natural; you have a relationship with yourself, and relationships are not always perfect. We live in a society that often tells us to better ourselves in many ways, which can result in people struggling to love themselves.

You spend every day with yourself, so to be truly happy it is important to have a loving and respectful relationship with yourself. Check out 8 things you can do to make sure you have a good relationship with yourself.

1. Do one thing that makes you happy every day

From having a hot bubble bath to watching your favorite show on Netflix, try to do something alone every day that you really enjoy. This will help you to look forward to spending time alone with yourself, and during these times you will learn more about who you are as a person.

2. Start a new hobby

Can you think of a hobby that you’ve always wanted to learn? From cooking to yoga to salsa, learning a new skill will help to increase your self-esteem and self-worth, showing you how much you have to offer to the world.

3. Take yourself out on a date

Dating is a great way to get to know someone, including yourself. Try treating yourself to a perfect night out; put on your favorite outfit, book a table at your favorite restaurant, and order a meal that you love. Stroll home at your own pace; remember this date is all about you.

4. Laugh every day

Laughing every day releases chemicals that boost your mood, so ring your funniest friend or listen to a comedy podcast. This will improve your overall outlook, helping you to have a better perspective on life and yourself.

5. Spend time with people who are likeminded

Humans are pretty unique, which often results in people feeling lonely and isolated. If you mainly associate with people who you have little in common with, you can start to think that your interests are dull or strange.
Try spending time with other people who have similar interests so that you can grow together. Realizing that you are not alone will help you to fall in love with your uniqueness.

6. Go for a walk outside

If you feel like you don’t really know who you are anymore, going for a walk outside may help. Exercise has been proven to help boost your mood and your health, which results in increased energy and better sleeping habits.
Being outside will also benefit you; it will help you to realize how wonderful and beautiful the world around you is. This moving reflection will help you to make peace with yourself and the world around you.

7. Write a weekly gratitude list

At the end of each week, sit down and write down 7 things that you are grateful for. Often we take things for granted without realizing how lucky we actually are. You can list anything, from your family to a delicious bagel you ate before work. Life is filled with things that bring joy, and making a note of them will help to make you happier with your life and yourself.

8. Say positive things to yourself every day

If you want to have a better relationship with yourself, try saying positive affirmations in the mirror every morning and evening, such as “I love who I am” and “You deserve happiness.” You may feel a little cheesy to begin with, but your mind will be listening. Keep saying the affirmations and eventually you will start to believe they are true. Good luck!
