A 28-Day Journey to Loving More of Yourself

loving yourself journey

Lucille Ball once said, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.”

There are many ways you can love all of who you are.

But if you have been taught that consistent self-love and daily self-care practices are selfish, loving who you are may not feel comfortable at first.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what better time than now to rewrite the narrative on what love is for you.

Whether it is a loving relationship with family, friends, or a romantic partner, we all desire to give and receive love. But in our search for love, is it possible we have overlooked the single, most important relationship of all?

That is the loving relationship we have with the one person we spend more time with than anyone else.


In this article, and the accompanying video, we are going to explore how to love more of yourself through a 28-day inner journey.

Be the Love You Seek

How often have you wondered what your life would look and feel like if you could magically bottle up a moment’s worth of unconditional love to experience all the time?

Some will say this is not possible. What if it is?

Like you, I have experienced varying degrees of love. I have also experienced what I would describe as the opposite of love.

From betrayal and deep sadness from losing a loved one, to indescribable bliss of feeling loved and valued by another, the spectrum of emotions we experience with love is vast.

In those moments when we are feeling loved or giving love to another person, it is euphoric. The flipside of that is deeply uncomfortable when we don’t feel loved.

How do we find our emotional balance in this seemingly turbulent ocean of love’s erratic and unpredictable ebbs and flows?

The answer is to be the love you seek.

Love Yourself as You Would Like to Be Loved

Persian poet Rumi once wrote, “What you seek is seeking you.”

Does this mean if you are seeking love with another person, there is someone ‘out there’ who is seeking you?

Sure, you can look at it that way. But what if the love you are seeking is not outside of you but within you?

To put this into perspective, imagine your ideal romantic partner or a best friend.

I suspect you have some beautiful traits and qualities that could more than equal anything another person could gift you with in a loving relationship.

Now, what if you took those same traits and qualities and lovingly applied them to yourself?

Be the Object of Your Own Affection

What all of this comes down to is that whatever we desire in our life – be it a loving relationship with a friend or a romantic partner – we must be willing to embody what we desire from another and be that for ourselves first.

You may already be well on your way to doing this.

However, if you are like many who are 60 and over, the idea of practicing self-love can feel uncomfortable at first.

Wherever you are with loving yourself, you are in the ideal place to begin loving more of who you are.

To get started, I invite you to go on a 28-day inner journey.

Why 28 days?

There are 28 days in February this year.

February is synonymous with love. Everywhere you look there is an array of symbols, quotes, articles, movies, and music all dedicated to love.

Whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, the expectations for love, coupled with the longing for love, can be both intoxicating and downright overwhelming this time of year.

Instead of waiting for someone to show up and sweep you off your feet, I invite you to create your own set of loving activities and practice them for the next 28-days and beyond.

Where do you begin?

By making yourself the object of your own affection.

28-Days of Loving Affirmations & Journaling

Whatever ways you choose to shower yourself with love and affection, two proven methods that will serve as foundational pillars for your inner journey are affirmations and journaling.

For these next 28-days, I encourage you to combine these two activities. Here’s how.

  1. Join me in the accompanying video for this article. Along with additional insights and a three-part action item, I am going to also share with you 28 self-love affirmations.
  2. For the next 28-days, I encourage you to say one of the 28 affirmations each day.
  3. After you speak each affirmation out loud, take some time to journal why that affirmation is true for you.
  4. Next, journal a list of loving activities you can engage in that demonstrate the affirmation to yourself.
  5. From that list, choose at least one activity and then lovingly engage in it during the day.

Let’s Have a Conversation:

What ways are you currently showing love to yourself every day? If you have a favorite loving affirmation you say to yourself, what is it?

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, STYLECASTER may receive an affiliate commission.

Using beauty products that contain rice water is widely popular in several regions in Asia, as many people see it as a beneficial ingredient for maintaining hair health. Rice water is made up of many vitamins and nutrients, such as amino acids, vitamins C, E and B, which can contribute to growth, shine and softness. It also works as a fantastic detangler, making it an optimal ingredient to keep on hand during the winter months. If you’ve never given haircare with rice water a go before, consider beginning with the ProBliva Rice Water Growth Treatment.

The leave-in scalp spray has already begun to make waves amongst Amazon shoppers for its effective results. Beyond rice water, the formula contains other anti-loss additives, such as caffeine, biotin, castor oil and rosemary oil, which help promote stronger hair follicles stimulating the scalp for long-term health benefits. These ingredients are also superior at soothing irritated skin, calming inflammation and encouraging thicker strands for increased volume.

Lucky for you, it’s on sale at Amazon for under $20, which is the lowest price it’s had in the past 30 days. Scoop one up while it still has a 20 percent discount!

The paraben- and cruelty-free spray has earned a 4.3 approval rating from reviewers who claim to have seen a difference in both volume and growth from continued use. One person rejoiced that their “hairline has been growing back” and that it’s now so thick, “it takes 3 times the amount of time to blow dry.” 

“I have been struggling with hair issues due to hormonal imbalances. This spray is a lifesaver,” they continued. “My hair is thicker and feels like a silk ribbon after using this spray. For those sensitive to perfumes, there is no noticeable scent.”

“Today was the third day and there was practically no shedding in my shower this morning,” raved another fan, who says clumps of hair falling out have “completely stopped” since using this spray. “I had been dealing with excessive dandruff/sebum on the scalp as well and that is also almost all gone. My scalp and hair feel healthy and fresh. I can not describe the relief of not having to pick up gobs of hair out of the shower drain.”

I guess rice water really is all that.

Medicare Updates in 2023

medicare updates

Medicare is the federally funded health insurance program available to U.S. seniors and those under age 65 with certain disabilities. Each year updates are made to Medicare that allow for wider access, revisions to benefits, price adjustments, and more.

In 2023, there was no shortage of change to Medicare, as several significant updates were made to the federal health insurance program. Below, we will review the most notable changes to Medicare in 2023.

Updated Medicare Costs in 2023

When you are enrolled in Medicare, you are responsible for costs such as monthly premiums, deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance. The costs you are responsible for depend on the care you receive, the plans you are enrolled in, and the way in which you receive care.

Medicare costs are updated annually. Thus, each calendar year, when your benefits reset, you may be responsible for higher or lower out-of-pocket amounts depending on the new price list for the year.

In 2023, Medicare saw both increases and decreases in certain areas.

Medicare Part A Updated Costs

Medicare Part A is the part of Medicare that covers hospital inpatient stays, skilled nursing, and home healthcare. In 2023, the out-of-pocket amounts related to Medicare Part A increased slightly from 2022.

Medicare Part A is free for most enrollees. However, if you did not work enough quarters paying Medicare tax in the U.S., you may be required to pay a monthly premium. The full Medicare Part A premium increased from $499 to $506 in 2023. Additionally, the Part A deductible increased from $1,556 in 2022 to $1,600 in 2023.

Medicare Part A inpatient coinsurance amounts also saw an increase in cost for 2023:

Days 1-60: $0 copay in 2023

Days 61-90 $400 copay in 2023

Days 91-150 $800 in 2023

Medicare Part B Updated Costs

Medicare Part B helps cover doctor’s visits, durable medical equipment, and outpatient care. Typically, the Medicare Part B premium and deductible increase each year. Yet, in 2023, Part B saw its first premium and deductible decrease in several years.

The Medicare Part B premium in 2023 is $164.90 and the deductible is set at $226.

Medicare Part C Updated Costs

Medicare Part C is also known as Medicare Advantage plans. These plans combine Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and B) coverage with additional benefits like dental, vision, and drug coverage to provide enrollees with an all-in-one plan option.

There are several Medicare Advantage plans available. So, listing the updates for each plan can be extensive. However, if you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you should have received a notice of change letter outlining the updates to your plan for 2023.

When enrolled in a Medicare Part C plan, you are responsible for paying your plan’s premium each month. The average Medicare Advantage plan premium in 2023 is $18, with a maximum out-of-pocket amount of $8,300, a slight increase from 2022.

Medicare Part D Updated Costs

Medicare Part D plans help to cover the costs related to your prescription drugs. Like Part C, Medicare Part D has several plan options that come at different costs and require additional out-of-pocket costs.

The average cost of a Medicare Part D plan in 2023 is $31.50, a slight decrease from 2022, and the maximum plan deductible is $505.

Improved Access to Medicare Enrollment in 2023

Medicare enrollment is a particular process that must be followed precisely to receive benefits from the federal health insurance program. However, changes in 2023 allow for improved access to Medicare benefits for those enrolling in coverage for the first time.

In the past, when enrolling in Medicare for the first time, you may have had to wait several months before your coverage would take effect. Now, those who enroll in Medicare during their Initial Enrollment period or during the General Enrollment Period will receive coverage on the first day of the month after they enroll.

The only exception to this is if you enroll during the three months prior to your Medicare eligibility. In this case, your coverage will go into effect on the first day of the month you are eligible for Medicare benefits.

Additionally, new Special Enrollment Periods have been identified to help those who missed their Initial Enrollment Period enroll in coverage without paying a penalty.

How Are Insulin Copays Impacted in 2023?

Effects of the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act are already being felt within the Medicare program. The most notable effect for many is the $35 insulin copayment cap. If your prescribed insulin is listed on your 2023 Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan, you will not pay any more than $35 each month for your drug.

This is a provision to Medicare Part D that has been a long time coming. With an increase in insulin costs over the last decade, many seniors were stuck in a desperate position when it came to affording their monthly insulin prescriptions.

Thankfully, this will no longer be an issue in 2023 and beyond.

2023 Drug Negotiations

Starting in January 2023, manufacturers will be penalized by Medicare if they increase drug prices more than the general rate of inflation at that time. This means fewer price increases at lower rates for several Medicare prescription drugs.

Additionally, price negotiations for the first 10 Medicare-covered drugs will be announced by September 1, 2023. This means seniors who are prescribed certain medications may see a decrease in out-of-pocket spending after the negations are finalized.

Free Vaccines Through Medicare Part D

The final provision to Medicare in 2023 we will discuss is the availability of 100% Medicare-covered vaccines. All vaccines recommended for your age will be available at no cost to you for Medicare recipients.

Currently, several vaccines covered by Medicare Part B are already available to Medicare enrollees at no cost. However, you are responsible for a percentage of the price for certain vaccines covered through Medicare Part D. This will no longer be the case in 2023. This opens access to the Shingles vaccine and other more expensive Medicare Part D vaccines for many.

Whether you are new to Medicare or have been enrolled in the healthcare program for several years, it is always important to stay current on Medicare changes and improvements. Changes to Medicare may allow you access to care previously out of reach for you or allow you to save money on out-of-pocket costs.

Keeping up to date with Medicare trends is essential for a successful future when it comes to your healthcare.

Will you be taking advantage of Medicare this year? Will this be your first year enrolling? What are you planning on using your Medicare services for? Which of these 2023 updates will be of greatest benefit to you?
