If you’re anything like me, you probably don’t spend enough time taking care of yourself and practicing self love. It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily grind of life and forget to focus on your own needs and happiness.

Social media also doesn’t help things because every day, you’re confronted with images of “perfect” people and “perfect” lives. It can be very tempting to constantly compare yourself to others and feel like you’re not good enough.

The thing is, self love is incredibly important for your mental and physical health. When you take care of your body and your mind, it shows in everything you do and leads to a healthier and happier life.

Practicing self love sounds a little selfish to some people, but I assure you it’s not. As well as looking after yourself, it teaches you to be more compassionate and understanding towards others. After all, how can you take care of the people you love when you can’t even take care of yourself?

That’s why I’ve put together this list of self love quotes for Instagram. Every time you post, it will remind you to love yourself and spread the message to all your followers that self love is important. I hope they inspire you to start taking care of yourself and filling your life with more positivity and happiness.
