It is Okay for Me to Take Care of Myself First

It is Okay for Me to Take Care of Myself First

By taking care of myself first, I am better able to care for others.

I enjoy taking care of myself. I am able to happily do the things that I know I need to do to make me a better person. By getting the sleep I need, eating healthy foods, exercising, and taking time to relax and meditate, I become a more centered, healthier person. I can offer more to others when I am in full health.

When I allow myself to slip from my healthy routines, or if I overextend myself, I have less to offer others. Because of this I need to make my care my first priority.

Caring for myself first ensures that I have the energy I need to run and play with my children. I am able to happily take the time to curl up with them and read a story before bed time. I am able to rise out of bed in the morning and guide my family into the day ahead of us with a healthy breakfast and energetic morning routines.

I can do all these things and more because I have first taken care of myself.

Today I will eat healthy foods, I will exercise, and I will take time to relax and recharge. I will think positively and I will get the sleep I need. I will take care of myself first, so I am better able to take care of others.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  • Have I eaten healthy foods today?
  • Have I taken time out for myself to relax and enjoy?
  • Have I gotten the sleep that I need?
