How to Write Yourself a Love Letter: A Mindfulness Exercise

The other weekend, I went on a yoga retreat. In addition to yoga, we learned about various wellness practices, from visualization to breathing techniques. One of my favorite exercises from the weekend was writing love letters… to ourselves. It’s a great mindfulness exercise to do if you’re feel low or simply need a little self esteem boost. Self love was one of my intentions for 2020. So I really took this exercise to heart. Here are the steps to do this mindfulness exercise at home:

Write a love letter to yourself

To get started, carve out ten minutes of your day. Find a comfortable position and grab a pen and paper. Set your timer for ten minutes and start writing yourself a letter. Kick it off with Dear {your name} and don’t stop writing until the timer goes off. Then sign it Love, {your name}.

You can write yourself whatever you want. Just make sure it comes from a place of love. Just as you would do for others, tell yourself how amazing you are and why you’re so incredible. Keep praising yourself for a full ten minutes.

write a love letter to your future self

The next day, carve out another ten minutes and follow the same setup. But this time, write a letter to your future self. Think of yourself in a year from now. Give your future self praise for all you’ve accomplished. Tell your future self how proud you are. Keep the love going until the timer goes off.

I hope this exercise helps you as much as it helped me! If you’re anything like me, self compassion can be difficult. But this simple exercise literally felt like I was getting huge hug… from myself.

“You, yourself,
as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.”
– BUDDHA

    I think this is a really good idea to do. It really is helpful to let yourself know you’re important and loved.

    But it’s still nicer to receive love letters from someone than to write them for yourself.

    SEO-friendly
    React JS is SEO-friendly, meaning that it can be easily crawled and indexed by search engines. This is because React JS allows for server-side rendering, which means that the initial HTML page is fully rendered on the server before being sent to the client. This makes it easier for search engines to index the content and improve the visibility of your web application.

    Cost-effective Development
    React JS enables developers to build complex web applications faster and more efficiently, which reduces the cost of development. Additionally, the use of reusable UI components and the large ecosystem of third-party tools and libraries means that development teams can focus on building core features rather than reinventing the wheel.

    Yes, I’ve heard of this exercise, but haven’t done it yet. I’m sure it helps to know and understand yourself better. Guys who did, share your thoughts. Do you know why I can’t do this exercise? Everything is simple. I can’t write well. In my studies, for example nursing writing is not easy for me. Therefore, I decided to turn to certified specialists who write works to perfection. This decision was very reasonable. Firstly, they have at least 3 years of writing experience. And secondly, here I found real experts in the field of theory and practice of nursing.

      Who wants to mess with all sorts of sms messenger when you’re trying other things, isn’t it? That’s why I’ve never done it, and that’s why I found tools which can do it perfectly well instead of me. About the author of such things you can ead here. Now I have more time for more important things, and these tools make great work for money, and I’m more than happy with that.
