Ways to Practice Self-love at Work:
1. Stop being too tough on yourself:
Don’t let your mind play games on you, you don’t have to believe everything you think. We all have an inner critic inside us, trying to keep us small and safe. It makes us doubt and critic ourselves which leads to beating ourselves up at the slightest inconvenience.
2. Stop comparing yourself to others:
There’s no one on this planet like you. No one can do what you do like you do it. We all have our uniqueness and it shows in how we do our work. Your co-worker shouldn’t be your yardstick for measuring your success.
3. Celebrate milestones:
Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small they may seem. Always pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
4. Step outside your comfort zone:
It’s always advised to try something new and different. When we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before, it’s an incredible feeling. Try stepping outside your comfort zone and doing something new.
5. Be patient but persistent:
Self-love is ever-evolving, especially at work. It takes daily practice so be patient. Focus on your work and find ways to be better.
6. Treat others with love and respect:
There’s a feel-good feeling that comes from treating others how we want to be treated. Does that mean they’ll treat us as we treat them? No, but that’s their problem, not yours. Treat your co-workers with utmost respect and love.
7. Don’t be guilty of saying no:
No, itself is an answer. If you have so much on your plate already, and someone needs you to do more you can simply say no. Be polite and respectful about it and if it’s something you can do at a later time then let the person know.
8. Find your happy place:
When work gets overwhelming and stressful, find that one place where you feel at peace, happy, and more alive and go there to reboot. If you can’t physically be there, then imagine yourself in your happy place and clear your head.
9. Be realistic:
No human on the earth’s always happy 24/7. We feel emotions and we make mistakes. But don’t let this affect how you get your work done. Remember we’re all human.
10. Learn continuously:
Learn something new, read a book, and find something that works for you.
Don’t just read this post and move on, you have to practice it daily for it to become a part of you.
Finally, when you learn to practice self-love at work, you’ll have an excellent relationship with both yourself and your co-workers.
