Sometimes it seems like our culture gives us the idea that putting ourselves first is selfish. Why is it that it's almost like a badge of honor to say you haven’t been getting enough sleep or that you've been so busy with work... I'm guilty of this for sure. When you love a person, love your career or love a hobby, it is natural to want to prioritize them, but loving others doesn't mean we can't love ourselves too!
The truth is, in order to be and give our best, we have to put ourselves first. When we get enough sleep, regular exercise, eat healthy, develop and maintain fulfilling relationships and feel stimulated with work and hobbies, we just FEEL better and all aspects of our lives show it. When we are burnt out, do you find it is even a chore to enjoy the good in life? I know I've been there. 🙋🏼♀️
Energy transfers to those around us, so the best thing we can do for the people in our lives we care about is to be the happiest and healthiest versions of ourselves that we can be! 💗⚡️💗
