Why it is big on TikTok

Dating yourself has gained popularity, especially on Tiktok because it promotes a sense of self-care. It helps one become independent, helping understand that nobody is ready to spend time with you if you cannot do it with yourself. The ideas below can be helpful if you want to get started;

  • Attend concerts solo
  • Take yourself out at your favorite places.
  • Buy yourself romantic flowers and gifts
  • Pamper your peaceful-self by taking a bubble bath, spa night at home, or candle lighting.
  • Plan a staycation or holiday

Why it can build a healthy relationship with yourself that you should prioritize?

Dating yourself can improve the love for you as it allows enough time to practice self-love. It helps know your strengths, values, weaknesses, and what makes you feel great. The practice also helps improve your self-care techniques, including thinking positively, getting a massage, and keeping a healthy weight. As a result, it improves your confidence and self-esteem; factors that can increase your personal growth and productivity.

Using the acquired academic and professional experience, I advise patients with various complaints about mental health - depressed mood, nervousness, lack of energy and interest, sleep disorders, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and anxieties, difficulty concentrating, and stress. In my free time, I love to paint and go on long walks on the beach. One of my latest obsessions is sudoku – a wonderful activity to calm an unease mind.

I am deeply convinced that each patient needs a unique, individual approach. Therefore, I use different psychotherapy methods in my work. During my studies, I discovered an in-depth interest in people as a whole and the belief in the inseparability of mind and body, and the importance of emotional health in physical health. In my spare time, I enjoy reading (a big fan of thrillers) and going on hikes.
