“I have learned that self-mastery and the consistent care of one’s mind body and soul are essential to finding one’s highest self and living the life of one’s dreams. How can you care for others if you cannot even care for yourself? How can you do good if you don’t even feel good? I can’t love you if I cannot love myself.”
Robin S. Sharma
? Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the 21-Day Self-Care Challenge.
? Each day for 21 days we give you an action to complete that will help you to take care of yourself so that you can better take care of the other aspects of your life effectively.
Each of our tasks focuses on either physical, mental or emotional self-care.
You can either follow the tasks as specified or individualize them.
We suggest scheduling off some self-care time in your diary each night so that you keep your meeting with yourself.
Today you will choose the focus of your self-care task.
✅ Choose a quick 5min action by identifying one thing that will make you feel more awesome today.
Here are some ideas:
- Drink an extra 500ml of water
- Sip your coffee a little bit slower
- Hug your partner or child a little bit longer than usual.
✅ Share your 5-minute actions with us in Self-care Challenge community group on Facebook.
Self-care looks different for everyone.
As we said, self-care looks different for everyone but the common factor is that it is a task that is easy to accomplish and moves you forward.
It does not need to time-consuming, like a 45min massage nor does it even need to accomplished all in one go.
You could give yourself small “pockets” of self-care each day. A couple of deep breaths every 2 hours, a couple of steps outside during work.
So today you have the task of finding one really enjoyable action and allocating 5 min of your day to accomplish it.
Note what it is and how it makes you feel, so if you are ever stuck for some inspiration and need a quick mood booster, you have a go-to.
Confirm completion of today’s task by marking it off in the form below.
