The missing element of self-care

Self-love and self-care are terms that are commonly bandied around at the moment.

There is an abundance of #selflovesundays in my social media newsfeed. I would argue that many of us need to broaden our definition of self-care to truly get the benefits of the practice.
What comes to mind when you think of self-love?

Based on what I see in my social channels, here is how the majority of my network seem to define self-love:

1. Health and fitness - most of us are aware that a nutritious diet and regular physical activity are gifts to ourselves that keep on giving.

2. Mental health and spirituality - based on the number of photos I see of people meditating on a beach or indulging in a relaxing bubble bath, we understand the importance of a healthy mind and a well-fed soul.

3. Emotional health - this one is a work in progress. I often see people classifying spending quality time with the people who mean the most to them purely as a social activity rather than as an integral part of taking care of themselves.

4. ...... that's it.

Where is financial health in this must-do list of self-care?

When you think about it, financial health is a massive element to the taking care of yourself beast because financially providing for yourself is an essential component in valuing yourself.
You deserve to have the financial resources, not only to meet your basic needs but also to live each and every dream you have, whether it be an altruistic or a self-centred one.

Don't let your money stories keep you from embracing self-love in all its glory.

You are worth it.
