Self Love Day is February 13th
Welcome to the 14th Annual International Day of Self Love!
Self Love Day was Founded by Christine Arylo and the Path of Self Love School.
Self Love Day is all about re-committing to the relationship you have with yourself! Watch the video and read more…
Every Self Love Day signals the start of year in which you get to re-commit to choosing self-love as a practice, path and a choice.
Here are 4 things we and you can do this February for yourself and others.
Invite people to CHOOSE SELF LOVE for the coming year by taking a self-love pulse check on the 10 branches of self-love + making a self-love promise for the year. You check in with your self love foundation to see what’s weak and needs strengthening. Then create a self love promise that supports you to stay true to yourself in that branch of self love. Go here to access the Self Love Promise Kit.
Create a Self Love Circle Guidebook you can use to gather others in your personal or professional communities – it’s free. Age and gender neutral. Simple. And fun! Access it here.
Create a special Teacher Self Love Guidebook for educators who want to bring self-love into their classroom. Focused on a specific branch of self love, this year self-care, and our Dare to Be Me methodology, this free resource can be accessed here.
Collaborate with partner organizations to bring self love to their members, staff, volunteers and those they serve. This year we are collaborating with groups of high school students with clubs and communities to facilitate circles, workshops and book clubs.

And if you are curious about why we founded Self Love Day…
Why is the International Day of Self-Love on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day?
As a culture we put so much focus and pressure on getting love from others, when every relationship starts first with the one we have with ourselves.
If you don’t love yourself, you end up creating all kinds of self-sabotaging situations – toxic or unhappy relationships, being extremely hard on yourself, dishonoring your body, working yourself into exhaustion, giving up on your dreams, putting yourself last, and more.
Most people just don’t equate a lack of self-love or a weak self-love with the challenges they face and the unsatisfying situations they keep finding themselves in.
Or they do know they need more self-love, but being told “go love yourself more” feels so esoteric, vast and fluffy, and like “Where the heck do I even start?”
We created Self-Love Day to increase awareness about self-love, and to help people make self-love an active practical path, practice and choice.
It took over a decade to research questions like:
- What is Self Love, really?
- How do you strengthen self-love?
- What are the signs of a weak and strong self love?
- How can we teach self love to children, young people and adults in practical, accessible, simple ways?
- Why is there so much focus on mental wellness and the mind and so little on emotional wellness and the heart?
Self-Love Day became part of our way to share and experiment with what has become a true self-love methodology – processes, tools, exercises, assessments – with people of all ages, backgrounds, races, gender and nationality.
Here are some photos of workshops and gatherings sponsored the Path of Self Love and held by mostly daring women all around the planet.
It’s been an amazing journey, and we’re so grateful for the thousands of people from around the world that have joined us in sharing the message of self-love every February. In over 41 countries. From self-love circles in homes to workshops in communities to social media sharing campaigns to virtual and in person events.
Together, we have and continue to beam self-love awareness during a month that was formerly all about romantic love.
Our ultimate mission is to: make the message, medicine and methodology of self-love accessible and attainable to all people worldwide so that within 3 generations we can create a world in which every child born is born connected to love and stays connected to that love, because they know how to source love from within,
Rooted in deep self-love, no matter what they face along their path in life, the generations to come will have the power within to stay true to themselves, trust themselves and find what they need to feel loved, supported, cared for, safe and strong.
So they :
- Don’t have to wake up at 40 or 50 and realize the choices they made in their career, relationship, life design were not the best for them.
- Can stay emotionally and mentally well, even in times of stress.
- Can say NO to the ways of working and approaching educational excellence and professional success that are burning us all out.
- Can LOVE and SUPPORT others without losing or sacrificing themselves.
Be part of a global community of beings who believe in the power of love and dare to share the message of self-love with the world.
