Self Care is essential for your mental health and well-being. Listening to your body makes you strong. When we accept ourselves for who we are, when we accept both our strengths and weakness, we gain confidence that makes an impression on the people around us.
It is only through accepting yourself as you truly can bring forth a better place in your lives. If you want to be happy, it’s because your mind has accepted it.
We all have those days when we feel low, anxious, and depressed. So it is really important to show some love and care to ourselves. For example: Say things that you are grateful for, or maybe just hold back on your favorite things for the week so as not to put too much pressure in your life -even though this may come off as needy!
Besides, how you can love others if you don’t love yourself first?
