According to Psychology Today “Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth.” Plus studies have found that the way you feel about yourself is a powerful predictor of your health and longevity!
So are you as a mom (and one of the busiest people on the planet) taking time to love yourself?
Loving ourselves means that we consciously choose to accept our own beauty AND our own flaws, knowing that all of it is okay and plays a significant role in our growth and personal development.
Remembering ourselves means we set aside time to enjoy the blessings of our lives and to reflect and restore our minds, bodies and spirit.
As women (and mothers) we are socialized to put the needs and care of those we love before our own needs. This is okay sometimes, but most of the time we have to be willing to put ourselves first!
