50 simple self-care ideas

You need to take care of yourself. 

Repeat after me, I need to take care of myself.

Not once a year, not once a month but every single day. 

Self-care is the act of doing things to cater to your physical, emotional, mental, and social needs and wants. It can be as simple as taking a shower every day.

Self-care is important because it helps you maintain a healthy relationship with yourself and enables you to be a better person for those around you.

Remember that you can not fill water from an empty cup in the same way you can not take care of others fully if you do not take care of yourself.
