How can we practice self-love in our daily life?


Research shows that too much stalking on social media has the potential to increase our insecurity. Yes, It happens, particularly to women. When we see people on Instagram, they mostly show the definition of beauty that is generally accepted by society, like fair skin, having flawless skin face without pimples, tiny body size, and so on. This framing generates an increment of insecurity inside women’s souls.  

Thus, Kate Spade New York invites women to love themself as a celebration of the World Mental Health Awareness Day this year. In 11 minutes duration video that they uploaded on Instagram, Ratu Ghania, Clara Sutantion, Cindercella, Chiara Lionel, Amel Hutahaean, and Sania Leonardo share their own insecurity stories and how it affects their mental health. 

Like Ratu Ghania told about how her pimples make her has a hate relationship with herself since pimples become a weakness of beauty standards that are shaped in society. Chiara also told her own story about psoriasis that makes her feel that society cannot accept her. These six incredible women look stunning wearing Kate Spade New York's clothes from Fall collection 2021. 

Kate Spade New York is continuously making efforts to speak up about mental health. It becomes one of their mission to raise the positive spirit around people, mainly to strong women that have been involved in creating this video. Besides, as a part of continuity to practicing this mission, Kate Spade New York has been worked together with The National Council for Mental Wellbeing where they give training for the art community in New York about "Mental Health First Aid".

To support this social mission focused on mental health dan well-being life, Kate Spade New York also donated $100.000 that aims to provide mental health facilities for art workers in New York. 

How can we do self-love in our daily life?
According to the Brain and Behaviour Foundation, self-love means having a high regard for your well-being and happiness. It takes care of your own needs and not sacrificing your well-being to please others, figuring out what self-love looks like for you as an individual is an essential part of your mental health.

So now we know that self-love motivates you to make healthy choices in life. When you hold yourself in high esteem, you're more likely to choose things that nurture your well-being and serve you well. These things may be in the form of eating healthy, exercising, or having healthy relationships.

Becoming mindful
Being mindful and living life with intention can help you slow down, find your purpose, feel happier, and become less stressed, leading you to a happier state (especially during this busy season). With so many benefits, it’s no surprise that heaps of successful people make a concerted effort to practice being present and aware—and attribute their work with mindfulness to their achievements. Best-selling author and early Google Engineer Cheng-Meng Tan are one of these people.

Making room for healthy habits
Start truly caring for yourself by mirroring what you eat, how you exercise, and what you spend time doing. Do stuff, not to “get it done” or because you “have to,” but because you care about yourself. Get rid of nightstand clutter. Getting enough rest is a foundation of good health, but it is easy to neglect the nightly ZZZs when life gets busy. A bedroom that feels restful and calm signals to your body and mind that it’s time to downshift from your hectic day.

To create a calm aura in your bedroom, start tidying your nightstand and removing anything you no longer use or need. Think books you’ve already read, outdated magazines, unused hand lotions, or items from your purse purge. Keep only those things you use, such as a lamp, alarm clock, and phone, or that soothe you or bring you joy, such as a photo of a loved one, a small vase, or a special book. Having just a few items on your nightstand makes it easier to keep clean and dust-free.

Practicing good self-care
As you work on your recovery, you might want to write down some of your main goals. These goals can be short-term and easily achievable, or you can start identifying bigger, more long-term goals that you want to work your way towards. It's helpful to think of small steps toward them over a certain amount of time, like a week or a month. Remember to congratulate yourself on any successes. Achieving goals - even small ones - is a sign of hope and accomplishment.
