My top 10 quotes about self care and loving yourself

MANICURE, ALONE TIME, but so much more… When I think about conscious actions one can take in order to promote our own physical, mental, and emotional health, I often think of getting a massage, getting my nails done, or having long conversations with friends. However, self care reaches way beyond alone-time and a manicure.

Self care to me is about recognizing our own needs and what’s important to us, in order to become better in making decisions that serve you well. In the blog Secure your own oxygen mask first, before you assist others,

Self care can be about that too. The decision that you no longer want to suffer, that you want to understand why you have made people-pleasing a habit of yours.

It’s about taking care of yourself first, so that you can give more to others.

I didn’t even understand the concept of [self-love]. It took time and it’s a journey and it’s still a journey for me.Taking care of myself and finding ways in doing so, is an important part of my life. For example, as you were able to read in the post Goals for 2021 and how to stick to them, I decided to prioritize my sleep. Getting enough sleep makes a big difference during my day. Therefore, I like to share with you some of my favorite quotes on self care. I hope they inspire you in some way.

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


“You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.” – Toni Morrison in – Song of Solomon
