Self-care is very important in our daily lives. It includes any intentional actions you take to care for your physical, mental and emotional health. Life throws challenges.

Here’s my 18 inspirational quotes that will motivate you to self-care:

1. “Be your sacred-self.”

3. “It’s common to reject or punish yourself when you’ve been rejected by others.

What are you doing to protect yourself? Find a healthy way to express your pain.”

  • Christina Enevoldsen

4. “The definition of true beauty is being a hundred percent comfortable in your own skin. It’s having confidence in yourself even if you don’t meet the standards of how others expect you to look.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
