10 Lines From Literature That Promote Self Care ✨

Considering the current climate, self care has never been so important - a moment to slow down, be mindful and accept all of our emotions without feeling guilt. Of course with so many external factors taking up brain space, being kind to ourselves is often easier said than done. 

It’s in times like this that we often turn to books for guidance, as quite often they hold the words that we struggle to find. We thought we’d share some beautiful quotes from literature in the hope that they can perhaps help you in the same way they help us. We hope that these quotes inspire you to be kinder to yourself.
