How do you love yourself in ways that actually hurt?

While attending a conference recently I realized one way people think they are loving themselves is by “rewarding” themselves with food.

Good job, self! You worked hard today! Sweet treats and a sugary Starbucks drink for you!!

Meanwhile, everything consumed out of love was detrimental to the body.

We reward ourselves with app time.

Good, job, self! You just crushed a tough meeting! Take a break and go for a good scroll!

Meanwhile, of all the minutes clocked scrolling, it’s added heaps of visual information to your already full mind.

You get the point. I don’t need to drown you with examples.

What ways are you “loving” yourself that aren’t actually very loving?
