For more than ten years now, Flow has been promoting the message to live life slower. To seek happiness in the little things and to embrace life with all its ups and downs. We have made ten videos around these topics, with life lessons that are so very much needed in these hectic times. Lessons that we didn’t learn at school, but which we will benefit from all our lives. Watch the seventh video in this series below.
Be kinder to yourself
We can be so harsh on ourselves. Overdemanding, judgmental, strict. Give yourself a break. Choose you. Celebrate you. Honour you. With all of your imperfections. Honour your body. Display yourself. Show yourself in all your colors. Practice the art of self-love and treat yourself like you would treat a good friend. Or better yet: be your own best friend. And remember: “Who said you have to?” is a good sentence to say to yourself often.
