This post is going to focus on the mental and emotional aspects of living a healthy lifestyle, but particularly on the concept of self-love.

Our mental and emotional health play an important role in our overall health and wellbeing, yet I feel that, they’re aspects of health that are commonly overlooked.

With that said, I’m sharing 10 Quotes to Inspire Self-Love. Creating self-love is a great way to promote and support our mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

What is Self-Love?

I quoted this from an article written by Deborah Khoshaba, Psy.D. She is a Clinical Psychologist and Director of Training and Development for the Hardiness Institute, Inc., Irvine, California.

“Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. Self-love is dynamic; it grows by actions that mature us. When we act in ways that expand self-love in us, we begin to accept much better our weaknesses as well as our strengths, have less need to explain away our short-comings, have compassion for ourselves as human beings struggling to find personal meaning, are more centered in our life purpose and values, and expect living fulfillment through our own efforts.”

There are so many quotes on self-love these are just a few!
