It goes without saying that we're all busy people, right? A good portion of us also have others who depend on us, like significant others, children, parents, and friends. While caring for others can show how selfless we can be, it's important to make sure you are taking care of yourself too.
Practicing self-care is so important for our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Taking the time to focus on ourselves ultimately helps us to have a healthy work-life balance, aid in stress management, lead to better physical health, and not get burnt by life in general.
We know it's easy to get wrapped up in other things that we put ourselves on the back burner, so we wanted to share some self-love and self-care quotes as a friendly reminder that you are worth investing in too!
"Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like you love yourself."
"Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives." – L. Hay
"Love yourself first, because that's who you'll be spending the rest of your life with."
"The more you love yourself, the less nonsense you'll tolerate."
"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world." – Lucille Ball
"Self-love is not selfish; you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself."
Just spending a few minutes a day focusing on ourselves will make quite a difference in how we feel and function overall. Think back on these quotes when you feel like you need a breather, and they'll help you put things into perspective!
