20 Ways to Make Yourself a Priority

It’s the month of love. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you might be thinking of how to honor your spouse or your children. I want you to think of ways to honor yourself. This month, learn how to love yourself and use these 20 ways to make yourself a priority:


  1. Get regular medical checkups.
  2. Choose healthy relationships, always.
  3. Use your boundaries, always.
  4. Pray.
  5. Read often.
  6. Treat yourself.
  7. Take naps.
  8. Let the chores go until tomorrow.
  9. Say “no.”
  10. Say “yes.”
  11. Take a mental health day.
  12. Get therapy if you feel you need it.
  13. Realize you’re never going to be perfect. And neither will anyone else.
  14. Do one thing you love every day.
  15. Find a true best friend.
  16. Exercise and eat healthy (most of the time).
  17. Look in the mirror and talk gently to yourself like you would when encouraging your children.
  18. Laugh as much as possible.
  19. Spend time with the people who love you most, your family.
  20. Get regular medical checkups.
  21. Bonus: Keep the promises you make to yourself.

Do something every day that will make yourself a priority, even if it’s as simple as sneaking away to your room to watch a video or listen to some music.
