It's Valentine's Week... and this is the sixth vignette that Dr. Nunez shares. In this vignette Dr. Nunez talks about the importance of loving yourself and the true meaning of self-care. Our day-to-day lives keep us busy with parenting, work, and taking care of others, that we often neglect our own needs. It is vital that we take time for ourselves in order for us to be present and to be the best parent, partner, professional, etc. we can be.
In this episode Dr. Nunez talks about the meaning behind self-love and self-care. In order for us to give love we have to understand what it means to unconditionally love ourselves. We are our own worst critiques and we have the tendency to criticize ourselves rather than saying positive statements that uplift us. Give yourself permission to be selfish and take time out of your day, everyday, to do something that makes your soul happy such as eating a piece of chocolate, going for a walk, etc. The love that you have for yourself is the love that you will attract from others. Remember you can't give love if you don't know how to authentically love yourself.
