Showing yourself love is important. Especially, if you’re the type of person who always spreading love and showing love towards other people.

If you’re not showing yourself love, then how are you going to spread it properly elsewhere. Everyone deserves to show themselves love. Here are some ways to show yourself love:

Taking care of yourself can consist of listening to what your body needs, exercising, watching your diet, visiting the doctor, moisturizing, using body and hair products that doesn’t consist of harsh chemicals and reading to exercise the brain.

- Paying attention to your emotional wellbeing. This looks like seeking counseling services or a therapist. Limit your consumption of bad news, ask for help and advice with difficult task, wear clothes that make you happy and cozy, turn off your notifications, listen to music, plan something to look forward to, say no to things that make you feel bad, and stay away from toxic environments. My favorite thing to do for my emotional wellbeing is reading (books, poetry, articles, essays, blogs) that help me learn and understand emotions.
Showing yourself love is important. When you feel whole, then you are able to share your love with others. It’s okay to take time for yourself, regroup, and get your thoughts and feelings together. Always take time for comfort, wisdom, motivation, healing, rest, self-control, peace, and clarity. That’s showing love to yourself.
