I talk about self-care in my 21-day Self-love Course and how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle.

Self-care is extremely important. And, we must know that it's good not only for us but for the people in our lives.

Self-care is not about ignoring the people that need you or considering them as less important than you.

It is about doing what is best for you and them in the long run.

If you keep giving without taking care of yourself first, you won't be able to do that for much time.

Filling your cup first doesn't mean taking away from what you give to others.

It just means increasing your stock so you can wholeheartedly support and love them while supporting and loving yourself too.

It is essential that you remember to care for yourself as you care for others.

So, today let's dive into self-care affirmations to begin this journey.
