Self care isn’t an indulgence, it’s a necessary part of life, and it consists of more than the occasional massage or bubble bath. It’s about getting in touch with yourself, your wants, needs and dreams in body, mind and spirit.  It’s about being comfortable with setting boundaries to protect yourself and deserving enough to say no when you need to so you don’t become burned out. Self care is making time everyday to relax, renew and energize.

An eating disorder tears down a person physically, mentally and spiritually. Consistent daily self care has been essential to build myself back up physically stronger, emotionally with more kindness toward myself and spiritually with a deeper personal connection and faith.

I’ve been practicing daily self care for almost 1 year. It took time to find what works for me and what are my non-negotiables that set me up with the mindset and energy to have an amazing day. The only variation is time. Sometimes it’s 15 minutes and sometimes it’s an hour or more. Every. Single. Day.

When I first started it was challenging to resist the urge to make self care a less of a priority. It took a conscious effort to not be so quick to skip it for something that, in the past, I thought was more important.

Then, without you even realizing it’s happening, self care becomes habit, like showering and brushing your teeth. Self care becomes something your body and mind look forward to experiencing. Self care is sometimes the only down time of my day.

As a personal trainer, yoga teacher and friend I encourage self care and the 2 responses I often get are “I feel guilty” and a general conversation that communicates “everyone else’s needs are more important than mine.” I get it.  I’ve been there, repeatedly.

So, before we talk about creating a self care plan in the next few weeks I’m going to inspire you to believe, to make the time and to make a commitment to yourself and your needs, wants and dreams.

Surround yourself with images and inspirational quotes that inspire self care. Immerse yourself in the kind language of self care and surround yourself with people that will support you.

  1. These are such beautiful sentiments. It is essential to be able to care for one’s self first before caring for others. If you don’t take care of yourself you won’t be able to take care of others effectively.

  2. “You cannot serve from an empty vessel” is my favorite quote! I love that you included it here. All of these quotes are amazing, thanks for putting them together in one place (:

  3. This is a great post, these quotes are fabulous. I have focussed on adding self-care to my daily routine for a few years and wished I had started a lot sooner.

  4. I love Eleanor Browns quote the most because its true. How are you meant to help others from an ’empty vessel’ if you do not take care of yourself? It is something that I need to bear in mind x

  5. I really like Bob Moawad’s quote! this one by Emerson touched me as well…”What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” These quotes were inspirational to me.

  6. I love that these are so pure and simple. Everyone needs a little reminder to take care of themselves and really do something that benefits them. I always make sure I practice mindfulness in my day-to-day life and that’s something that really helps me reflect on my attitude towards myself and reevaluate what I need to do to be kinder to myself.

  7. Sometimes it can be hard to remember to look after yourself, so having some quotes around that will inspire you to do something for yourself is a wonderful idea.

  8. I don’t know why we always seem to have the feeling that self-care is an indulgence or a luxury instead of a necessity for our well-being. We as women always tend to put ourselves last much to our own detriment. These quotes are lovely and really are an inspiration to make sure that you see self-care as something that is needed.

  9. My favorite is my Audre Lorde. Because I was taught that self care was selfish and that you should put others first. But you can serve others if you are half a person. Which of course leads right into the next picture you posted by Eleanor Brown.

  10. Great reminder that we all matter! Sometimes I find difficult to take time for myself, it makes me feel guilty, even though I know how important it is. I’m working on it!

  11. Sometimes doing things for myself seems self-indulgent. But it is reaffirming to read these quotes and look at things you do for yourself as essential.

  12. I absolutely love reading these kinds of quotes, they are so motivational! Such important reminders and I enjoyed reading every single one.

  13. Love these quotes! they would make great wall decor to remind us all ‘that we count too and that we’re just as important as others and need to show ourselves this. It’s a great reminder to the parents in the world ; )
    PS: I love quotes, they’re usually true and like mini poems that make people think…

  14. I so need this right now. Honestly this summer has been a bit crazier than usual and my own needs have been put on the back burner. I look forward to getting back to caring for myself! Thank you Jill!
    I also hope you had a great birthday!

  15. I have to admit that the self love quote by Oscar Wilde makes me laugh. I am not sure I agree with the way he put it, but seriously taking care of one’s self is necessary. Its like on a plane where they tell you to put the oxygen mask on you before taking care of your child. Because if you don’t take care of you, you cannot take care of anyone else.

  16. DVF quote is really strong! Thank you so much! As I am getting older and juggling so many things in my busy life the important of self love and care is vital to peace, productivity, and wellness!
    xo Debbie

  17. Always love getting these quotes at the end of the week! I like the one about self care not being about indulgence but really survival. Love that perspective! Thanks for the share!
