This February we are promoting "self-love" for individuals who feel that they aren't able to love themselves because they tend to motivate their selves with shame and self-criticism. When you learn to self-love, it gives you hope and helps you trust the process of change. Research on self-love shows that it is associated with:
  • Less anxiety and depression.
  • More optimism.
  • Better recovery from stress.
  • Better adherence to healthy behavior changes, such as exercise or diet.
