Women traditionally are often caregivers and nurturers and sometimes care for everyone else’s needs before our own. However, recent studies are indicating that self-love needs to be a high priority. Stress and negative emotions have damaging effects on the body, both physically and mentally. Our immune systems can be weakened and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammation throughout the body. This can cause headaches, nausea, and inability to sleep. We may be left feeling incapable of accomplishing routine tasks, feeling emotionally unsteady, or suffering from more serious levels of anxiety and depression.
