We’ve spent an entire year in various forms of lockdown, so it’s no surprise that discussions about mental health are a top priority for many of us at this moment. As moms, we must check in with ourselves, and we have to ensure our kids are feeling their best, too.

Feeling needed, loved, and worthy are essential for survival, but getting to that point isn’t always easy. 

What can we do to start feeling genuine self-love, so we can model that kind of behavior for our children? Outside of reminding our kids that they’re worthy, how can we help them start believing that to be true?

In this episode, award-winning author and teen confidence expert, Jacqui Letran shares how to build real, unconditional self-love in ourselves and our children.

“If everyone felt like their own best friend, the world would be a much happier place.”

Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

  • Why we’re approaching mental health all wrong
    Far too often we treat the symptoms of anxiety and depression when we should mitigate them from the start. It’s more beneficial to deal with the source, rather than the outcome.
  • When positivity becomes damaging
    Telling ourselves we’re amazing every day may sound like a good idea, but if we don’t feel like we’re amazing, it could be detrimental. Instead of focusing on the words we say to ourselves, we have to think about how we feel.
  • How to start believing affirmations, one step at a time
    Ambitious affirmations can get overwhelming fast, so start small. Rather than saying we are brilliant, or even saying we ‘feel’ brilliant, it’s a good idea to start with ‘I am willing to be or feel brilliant’.
