#1 – Be selfish
Yes, yes, you have read everything right. Being selfish is not a bad thing at all, on the contrary, being too altruistic has its very negative impact on your life and well-being. When standing in front of a choice whether to give the last piece of this delicious chocolate cake to your friend or eat it yourself, don’t hesitate a minute and grab it, there is nothing wrong with that. Believe me, if you give to somebody else things you really wanted to be yours, you’ll regret.
#2 – Pay yourself a compliment
Every time you look in the mirror, try to find something unique and appealing in your appearance. Whether it’s your plump lips or big beautiful eyes, or long thick hair – anything that can be a reason to like oneself. Besides, say some compliments to your reflection aloud. Convince yourself you look amazing because you really do!
#3 – Learn to forgive yourself
“Don’t be so hard on yourself, no!” as Jess Glynne sings. And these are the words you should take to heart. Accept that simple fact that you are human and you are not perfect. You are allowed to do mistakes and there is always a chance to recover. It is stupid to blame yourself for the failure of the team project at work because you didn’t manage to control everyone else’s work even though you weren’t supposed to. Learn the lesson, and avoid same mistakes in the future.

#4 – Read poems
Poetry is really able to transform your world. It enables you see life differently, from another perspective. It also helps you look at yourself with different eyes, from more poetic aspect. Reading one poem a day can open the boundaries you built up and can serve you as a motivation to break the walls and see the world as it is, and to see you as an inseparable part of it.
#5 – Find an occupation you are good at
It is amazing how much it is able to increase our self-confidence when we succeed in doing something. It can be a work you do or a hobby you recently found for yourself. Don’t spare some free time to find the activity you will be really good at. It can be playing the piano, learning a new language, or riding a horse. You are unique and there is something that you find yourself virtuous at and that is the reason you should love yourself for.
#6 – Evaluate what you feed yourself with everyday
And I’m not talking about food, I mean mass media, newspapers and journals you get the information from every day. All of that stuff your mind consumes has its effect on your inner state. So mind what TV programs or movies you watch. Besides that, I am sure you spend some time in social networks where you might come across some negative people. If there is someone always complaining about his life – remove him from your friends’ list, there is no space for negativity in your life!
#7 – Move your bud!
If I say ‘Move your bud’, I literally mean it. Get up of your comfortable couch and run to the gym! If you don’t take care of your physical part, your body will not get a better look with ages. Consequently, you will start hating your appearance more and more. And if you fairly train your bud & do abdominal crunches, it will show its results. People will turn their heads on you therefore making you feel beautiful. What other reasons to start loving yourself do you need?

#8 – Take lots of pictures
Memorize all the beautiful moments of your life. Your first self-made cake, your first bicycle ride uphill, your face early in the morning when just waken up. And don’t just pack the memory on your smart phone – print the pictures and gather them in a special memory box which you can refer to when searching for reasons to love yourself and this incredible life.
#9 – Stand up for what you believe in
Defend your interests and things you feel really passionate about. And there is no shame you love Merlin Manson and that you prefer sipping tea when everyone chooses to drink coffee at work. You don’t have to be the same, you must be different as you have the right to love yourself for being able stand up for what you believe in.
#10 – Do something good to somebody else
It is out of any explanations, but the feeling when you help somebody else, when you feel yourself needed is something that can really boost your energy and help you feel important. In the moments you are helping somebody else you are actually feeding your ego, and there’s nothing wrong with that as you find another reason to love yourself for who you are and what you are capable of.
