“I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and, gosh darn it, people like me.” Turns out a positive mantra like this is no joke. It might even be key to staying stress- and illness-free.
Lessons in Love
So, bottom line, loving yourself more may mean your body is armored against stress. And how, exactly, can you love yourself more? Let us count the ways: For starters, spend lots of time with supportive friends and family members. Research suggests that a supportive social network is good for self-esteem. You can also use positive self-talk to help yourself feel better (really, it works!) And a journal or diary, where you write down your positive qualities and good deeds done, is a great self-esteem-builder as well. If you have trouble getting happy on your own, enlist the help of a therapist, a support group, or a counselor.
