200 Self Care Quotes to Remind You to Take Care of YOU!


Indulging in self-care doesn’t mean you’re being selfish, or indifferent to other peoples’ needs. If you don’t prioritize your own mental, emotional, and physical health by looking after yourself, you won’t have the energy to look after other people or do the things that need to be done every day. 

Most importantly, when you care for yourself, you give yourself permission to be loved and nourished. We all need more self-love. 

We’ve curated some of the best self-care quotes we could find on the internet for beauty, mental health, productivity, work, technology, pampering, spirituality, travel, men, and family to help inspire your own journey to wellness.
