When was the last time you scheduled something just for you? Not because you had to but because you actually wanted to. It’s hard to remember, isn’t it? Your life is busy, we get that. But you come first—don’t ever forget that. It’s time to acknowledge that you are important and start giving yourself some TLC. Contrary to what some people think, self-care is not selfish or indulgent. Instead, it’s essential in order to have a healthy mind and body.
To celebrate the beginning of February, the month of love, we created a calendar with 28 self-love ideas for every day of the month. So, grab your planner and make sure to schedule a few minutes each day for self-love. And don’t forget to follow through with it. Make self-love a part of your daily routine. Make YOU a priority.
