5 Ways to Embrace Self Love This International Women's Day

To love yourself means to accept your unique inner self and celebrate the person you are. International Women's Day is fast approaching, and it's an excellent opportunity for women around the world to celebrate themselves.

To begin with, you need to understand that self-love requires two key things – self-acceptance and self-understanding. How can you love yourself if you don't know yourself? You ought to be the most authentic version of yourself for self-love to exist. I believe that self-love is more about being compassionate and honest toward self. Being kind to yourself is the key to practicing self-love.


There are several ways to practice self-love, and it can certainly go beyond a spa session (although that counts, too!). Here are some of my favorite ways to consider taking care of yourself and embracing self-love - because you deserve it.

Experience Life

One of the best ways to embrace self-love is to take yourself to a place you want to go. Treat yourself to all the good things you miss out on due to your busy life! Take a mini-vacation over the weekend at your favorite spot. Wander around a handmade artisan craft fair one weekend. Take a glass of wine and a good book outside to read for a bit. Check out the latest art museum exhibit - or visit the natural history museum and feel swept up in the grandeur of life. Just take some time to experience life - it will refresh you!

Connect with nature

In today's digital-first age, our connection with nature is on the verge of extinction. Nevertheless, getting outside is the key to embracing self-love. I recommend going outdoors or going on a hike. Breathe in some fresh air at the beach, the woods or the mountains - and take some time to introspect. Take a mellow drive along the coast or on a winding mountain road and let your mind free. Being mindful of nature will help you feel connected to the universe, earth and yourself.

Buy gifts for yourself

Why wait for others to shower you with gifts when you can do it for yourself? The gift doesn't have to be expensive but thoughtful. March is the month to celebrate women. Why not treat yourself with a unique piece of handmade natural stone jewelry? Since it's 'March is Me Month,' I've handpicked some of my unique handmade jewelry for you this month.

Feed your soul with positive self-talk

Change the way you treat yourself. Start channeling your thoughts on positive phrases and words. Give yourself pep talks and encourage yourself to step outside your comfort zone. Be your biggest cheerleader and start believing in everything you do. Practicing self-affirmation will add oodles of positivity to your life.

Keep learning about yourself

Keep learning more and more about yourself. Take some time to figure out what type of people you enjoy being around, what stresses you out, what energizes you the most or what makes you feel calm. It can be anything such as nature, the outdoors, painting, singing, etc. 

Even the most successful people struggle with how to love themselves. Ahead of International Women's Day 2022, I am making a conscious effort to help you find your inner self and embrace self-love. Remember, the most crucial relationship you will ever have in your life is with yourself. So make it count! The purpose of Earth Song Jewelry is to invoke a feeling of the artistic spirit of nature and the outdoors. I create handmade natural stone jewelry pieces that bring nature, the outdoors and art into your life wherever you go.
