Being a Black Woman: 7 Ways to Love Yourself



Everyone wants to find happiness, but happiness is relative to everyone. Happiness for someone might mean being at peace, being with their loved ones, or pursuing or enjoying traveling around the world, trying new foods, and experiencing a new culture. Happiness is personal to everyone, but living a happier and more satisfying life is possible regardless of what true happiness is to you. Making some changes to your regular habits can help you get there. Habits are essential if you want to change your life.

Incorporating certain habits into your daily life will help you improve the quality of your life and make yourself happy.

Here are seven simple ways to give yourself a daily dose of happiness:

1. Expand your positive self-talk. Our minds are powerful tools. What goes on in our heads, our silent thoughts, and inner conversations affects thoughts, actions, and our state of mind.

  • Keep your self-talk as positive as possible and create some positive affirmations you can say to yourself each morning. A happy mind is a happy life.

2. Create deep connections. Create strong bonds with people you care about. People with close relations to those they can count on are happier. Building close relationships with people around you can provide you with support, love, and a source of validation that enhances your sense of self-worth.

3. Appreciate what you have. Sometimes, we get caught up in the day-to-day hustle and forget to appreciate what we have and the amazing people we have in our lives. Being appreciative is one of the best feelings that can stimulate happiness.


  • When you choose to be grateful for your things, you’ll be happier and more content when you can express your gratitude to the people you are thankful for.

4. Celebrate small wins. Always take time to appreciate the small victories in your life. You don’t have to wait to experience big wins to celebrate. Happy moments often come from small things. We may not be happy all the time, but we can encourage ourselves every day by appreciating small wins.

  • When you celebrate wins, no matter how big or small, it helps you stay focused on positivity and gratitude. Those small wins can counter any feelings of giving up.

5. Make time to relax and exercise. Our bodies and minds connect to each other. Good eating habits, staying active, and getting sufficient sleep will improve your mood and give you more fuel when you need it.

  • Having enough sleep allows you to go into the day with renewed energy. When we stay active, eat well, have enough rest, try to improve our health, mood, and love more, day by day, we become happier.

6. Avoid comparing yourself to others. It’s normal to feel inspired by other people’s lives and what they do. But comparing their success to yours is a mistake. Your path differs from everyone's. They lived their lives, and so did you.

  • Comparing your life to theirs is like taking an exam from a class you haven’t been in. Instead of wasting energy and comparing yourself, focus on your journey, how far you’ve come, and what to do to improve your life.


7. Forgive yourself for past mistakes. Holding on to past mistakes doesn’t change them. You are better off forgiving yourself and moving on from the past. The emotional and physical relief that comes from that is priceless.

  • Move on and allow yourself to enjoy life without holding on to things that can’t change. Making a conscious effort to be happy is easy and challenging at the same time in this crazy world, but never unreachable. Your happiness depends on you, the effort you make, and how consistent you are in your journey to maintain your joy.

Live life free of holding on to what can’t change. Appreciate what you have now and love those around you. You’ll be glad you did!
