LAUREN KLEBAN: A NOTE ON SELF LOVE
Posted on 24 February 2015
What does Self Love mean to you?
Self love is accepting who you are and embracing it. Self love means moving my body daily, nourishing it with clean food and allowing it to rest.
Do you think Self Love is important? Why/why not?
If you don't love yourself, you can't be loved or love anyone else. Totally cliché but it's true.
What do you think is the most common reason for people not loving themselves?
It is far too easy to compare ourselves to others and allow other people's opinion of us affect how we see ourselves.
Have you always loved your body, how did you learn to love your body?
It took me years to accept and love my body. To get to a place of self love, I began to have gratitude for all that my body does.
When you're having a bad day, feeling bloated or feeling like you’re missing your glow - how do you get back on track?
I have to remind myself that not everyday is perfect and tomorrow is a new day
Have your feeling of Self Love change after becoming a mother?
For me self love became uber important when I became a mother because I was now responsible for my child learning to love himself. And now that I've learned I am expecting a girl I feel like it is even more crucial.
Do you have a favorite thing you do to pamper yourself?
I have a list of things I do to pamper myself! Taking a nightly Epsom salt bath with lavender and arnica (when I'm not pregnant) bubble bath tops the list.
When or where do you feel most happy?
When I'm in my studio helping other women move their bodies and enjoy themselves while doing it.
What's your favourite thing about your body?
I love that my body was able to carry my son, nourish him and return to its form very quickly. I am amazed by muscle memory and our body's ability to heal and bounce back.
Do you have a Self Love mantra or tip you can share with us?
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present." Learning to live in the moment is a tough lesson and one that I am constantly working on but being present in life and comfortable in my current place is true self love❤️
