5 Reason’s To Love And Take Care Of Yourself First

I chose this title because we as women always put other’s before ourselves. Yes I do it too that’s why I said we. The question’s to ask is how can I love others and take care of them if I don’t love and take care of myself first? Why am I always putting myself last? To answer those questions its our nature to take care of the people we love its just what we are here to do. Second we forget about ourself, we not even thinking about how we feel, how we look, our health, children and grandchildren. having goals and dreams. We just don’t think about it until it’s to late. So here are my 5 Reason’s To Love And Take Care Of Yourself First.

1. Our feelings matter. Going around feeling bad want help anyone. We have to feel well before we can love or take care of someone else. Our minds have to be right so we can keep everything straight. Relax take a break from it all. Get your mind right.

2. Looking good goes back to feeling good. Now you know when we pamper ourselves just alittle bit it makes us feel better. So go ahead get your hair done, nails done, buy that new outfit. Then you take that warm bubble bath get dressed and go handle your business which is loving and taking care of other’s.

3. We have to stay on top of our health. This is the area that gets no attention until its to late. Stressing, Headaches, Hypertension are a few illnesses that happen when we don’t watch our health. Go to the Doctor and get these checked out. Relax, go to the gym, take a walk or even a swim. Loving ourselves mean we are taking care of ourselves.

4. Our Children and Grandchildren are why we need to love ourselves first. We have to be here to keep them on their feet. Who else can tell our story to them but us.

5.Having goals and dreams are what we want to accomplish in life. We might not get everything we want but we will get everything we need. Higher Education, learning keeps you motivated and informed. Like I said before we have to keep our minds right.

To the ones that read this. I hope it helps you to realize you have to take
care of yourself first. Our spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, relatives, friends and strangers need us.

  1. It was such a struggle for me to realize that my feelings matter, as I feel as if we are taught that other people matter first. Being selfish and caring for oneself is definitely not the same thing and I am so glad self-care is at the forefront.

    Great post! x

  2. I had a conversation with a co-worker just today about putting myself first. This is such confirmation! I also, completely agree that when you look good you feel good. It’s all a mental thing but it works for me. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I think it’s incredibly important to look after oneself. You can’t give away what you don’t have and I need to keep my cup full so that I can help fill others

  5. Hi. You make really valid points and I think this would be a great read for many people. I especially like point number 2 anout feeling good to look good. As that is so important and many people constantly feel down and depressed or stressed and eventually their body also feels sick, tired and pained. Thanks for the read!

    1. Yes it is because we feel guilty for doing so. But we shouldnt if we dont take care and love ourselves first we will end up stressed, sick, or even worse. Baby steps try doing at least one thing to love and take care of yourself. Take care and thank you for commenting

  8. Great post and reminder to me. I’m always thinking too that the choices I make are being watched by my children. They will learn from me. Just as I learn from watching my parents and how they handle what life brings them. Well done!

  10. I love this so much. It has taken me so long to learn to put myself first and say no when I need to. At the end of the day, I feel so much better though, and I have so much more to pour into other people.

  11. This is such a great reality check we all need sometimes! I know I needed it yesterday when I was going to take a “Me Day” but ended up feeling so guilty for cancelling plans that I “uncancelled” them

  13. I especially like number 4. It took me a while to learn this and I am still a work in progress. When we take care of ourselves first, we are able to give even more to those around us. Doing it the other way round, ends up not benefiting anyone.

  14. This is so true, but so hard sometimes! Especially as a first time mom, I find all my focus going towards those around me. I finally went to the doctor this week to get checked out, and it seems I have been neglecting myself for too long! I have learned that I can be a better mom and wife if I am in good health.

  15. It’s really important for us to put ourselves first as women because if we aren’t taken care of then how will we take care of anyone else? But, mom guilt can be hard to deal with sometime. I’m a work in progress.

  17. I know this was aimed towards women, but as a man, I can relate to most of what was said in this post. I’m the only boy in my family, and have learned to look at things from both perspectives. Another great post.
