5 Self-Love Tips That Actually Help

We all need to remember to love ourselves sometimes.

Embrace what you're feeling.

When you embrace your emotions, this almost validates them, makes them real. Once they're out there in the open, you can move on.

Don't apologize for those feelings.

It's easy to get down on yourself and ask, "why do I have to be like that?" But in reality, your gut sometimes knows things before you do, so don't ever feel bad about feeling a certain way, especially if it's an "unpopular opinion" or doesn't "go with the flow."

Comfort yourself.

Indulge a little, you deserve it. Don't feel guilty about needing a little bit of a break. Take a nap, eat some comfort food, take a bubble bath. Do whatever makes you happy.

Distract yourself.

After you've admitted how you feel, sometimes it's good to sit in those feelings a little bit, but you never want to wallow too long in bad emotions. If they don't seem to be going away, find things to occupy yourself, and distract your brain a little. Find something constructive to do.

Try to find little things to be grateful for or happy about.

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in our emotions, and we end up focusing too much on the negative things around us. This can be dangerous. Instead, try to be more optimistic. Find little things around you to be grateful for, and acknowledge those things. This will make you feel better in general, and in the future, when there's a minor inconvenience, you'll be less likely to get overwhelmed by bad energy.

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
