A self-love note a day helps keep
the mental health at bay.
You would be surprised what a
little note can do. For example, think back to when you (or someone you know) had
a packed lunch from your mum or dad and there was a lovely little note from
them that had some way of expressing “I love you” on it. Think to how that made
you or your friend feel. I’m sure it was embarrassing getting a mushy note, but
it also made you smile because you knew that they cared and loved you.
Just imagine of how that would
make you feel if it was you leaving yourself little love notes. You would
probably feel really good about yourself. Well that’s exactly what I’m doing
this month. Everyday this month, in addition to my several goals for the month.
I am putting a sticky note on my wall with a little note from me to me.

aren’t skinny enough to wear that dress, we aren’t fit enough to catch that
person’s eye, we aren’t smart enough to pass that class. It can be so hard to
overcome such a mindset but little by little and a whole lot of effort,
switching our thoughts to be positive can make a huge impact on our outlook on
So if you, too, are up for the
self-love note challenge. Go for it! I will save mine throughout the month as a
reminder that no matter what society says, I know that I am always going to be pretty

Go on and love yourself!
