Self Love is Crucial

Self-love. Self-care. Me time.

These terms are used very often these days. Many people get lost in the day to day grind of life, and that inevitably leads to self-neglect. Of course, for most this is not intentional. I doubt that anyone wakes up in the morning and says, “I think I will neglect myself today.” Nevertheless, most of us neglect to prioritize self-care at some point, and this leads to stress, illness, depression, unhealthy relationships, and many other negative consequences. To combat these consequences, we must be adamant about taking time to care for ourselves. The first step is to truly accept that you deserve some extra TLC (regardless of anyone else’s misplaced opinion). If you are reading this, YOU are worthy and important. You deserve to be pampered, affirmed and cared for. Second, you must make self-care a daily habit, not just some big once-a-month event that requires planning, money and effort to execute. When you are conscious and intentional about doing things that elevate your mindset and your self-love daily, it becomes easy to maintain.


I have created this list of 100 ways that you can show yourself some love today.
