Self- Care is one of those hot words right now. We see it on Instagram, in women’s magazines, and on blogs but what does it really mean? If you follow along with me on Instagram you’ll hear me talk about the importance of self-care and how it’s way more than just bubble baths, face masks, and trips to the nail salon. It’s about being tuned into your needs mind, body, and soul and giving yourself permission to nourish those areas of your life regularly and without guilt. A lot of us struggle with self-care and carving out time to fill ourselves up after pouring out all week for our family, friends, and businesses so i thought i would share some of my favorite self-care centered quotes to inspire you and remind you that you are worthy and deserving.
“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.” – Deborah Day
“Accept yourself. Love yourself as you are. Your finest work, your best movements, your joy, peace, and healing comes when you love yourself. You give a great gift to the world when you do that. You give others permission to do the same: to love themselves. Revel in self-love. Roll in it. Bask in it as you would sunshine.” – Melodie Beattie
“With every act of self-care your authentic self gets stronger, and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker. Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration: I am on my side, I am on my side, each day I am more and more on my own side.” – Susan Weiss Berry
“Self-care is how you take your power back.” – Lalah Delia
