Reflect on how loved you are It can be easy to forget the things we have when we focus on what we don’t have.

If you’re the journaling type (and even if you’re not), you may want to write a few words about things that have happened in recent weeks or months that remind you that you are loved. Did you get to spend Christmas with loved ones recently or have fond memories of another special occasion? Write that down. Do you have work colleagues that you can also call f ..read more

#5 – Finding love requires letting go “There’s a practice I’m trying to follow right now to take care of my health and wellbeing. It’s called substituting and the idea is that before adding something new into my life – an activity, a hobby or any sort of commitment – I must first let go of something that requires a similar amount of energy, time and space. I believe this holds true for love too.

I remember that I felt very single, like I was not a part of something that everyone else had. However, I had to remember that this was a commercialised Christmas and New Year.
