Put your self-care first. First.
This means you must take care of your body and health first thing in the morning, first before anyone else, and first in your priorities. When budgeting your finances, put your health first. When allocating your time, put your health first. When making every choice you make, first think of your own (physical, emotional, and mental) needs.
Taking care of yourself first doesn’t make you selfish. It makes you wise, energetic, and compassionate. It makes you strong. And you will need that strength to become a loving, nurturing Queen to the people in your life.
