More than ever before, we now hear the buzz words “self-love” and “self-care.” For some, the concepts may be clear, but many are still seeking clarity on exactly what self-love and self-care mean and look like.

I identify myself as a “Vocabulary Nerd” who loves to look up word definitions to deepen my understanding of a concept. So we will begin with my definition of self-love and -care:

Self-love and -care go well beyond bubble baths, a silent moment to yourself before going inside your home after a long day of work, or a cup of tea before bed. Although these are great examples of self-love and -care, they are only examples and do not capture the full essence of these concepts.

Self-care means intentionally devoting attention and efforts to enhancing and protecting your well-being.

  • When you love and care for yourself, you make strategic decisions that will enhance and protect your life quality and reduce undue burden.
  • Recognize that you are a human and humans are flawed by design–perfection in human nature does not exist.
