5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“Practicing self-care everyday requires you to build the habit of practicing self-care everyday”.

“When you are practicing self-care, you got to practice self-care. It’s important for both productivity and happiness that we actually give ourselves enough time each week or each month to allow ourselves to enjoy that time. To enjoy the gift we are giving ourselves”.

“Shouldn’t taking care of yourself come before responding to everyone else’s needs? Aren’t you important enough to yourself to justify that? I think so. Maybe you don’t, but if you don’t then you actually need to be practicing self-care even more”.

“You can choose to make it happen and gain all the benefits that come with it like better mental health, more energy, improved relationships, and more happiness”. 

“You are just as worthy of your love as the people you choose to love are”.
