“Stand up for who you are. Respect your Self and ignite the divine sparks in you. Access your powers. Choose your rights and work together with others to bring blessings into their lives.”
👋 Hello and welcome to Day 2 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.
Yesterday you choose your own task, it could have been focused on your physical, mental or emotional well being. Today we suggest you focus on your mental health, don’t worry if you chose something along the same lines!
✅ Consume positive news.
Instead of being helpless we want you to be informed, engaged, and optimistic so look for positive news stories today!
The saying goes that you are what you think of, so why not guide your thoughts to a more positive world view?
And we don’t mean happy cat videos and feel-good fluff pieces, look for news that offers solutions, ideas, ways to improve and provides optimism
Here are some links to get you started:
✅ Share your good news stories with us in Self-care Challenge Community Group on Facebook.
Immerse yourself in kindness.
Did you know we are hardwired to look for danger? When we were cavemen, this was a tool we used to survive and this has been passed down to us as we evolved.
And now that we are constantly online and have access to so much information, we tend to gravitate towards the negative by default.
When surrounded by such negatively our cortisol levels rise thus spiking our anxiety, depression, and paranoia levels which in turn leads to us consuming even more negative news.
Today let’s immerse ourselves in kindness and try to only consume some positive news.
Kindness is also an inherent trait from our primitive selves. As social beings who form community and thrive on connection, we need kindness to survive as well.
So steer your brain in that direction with little bits of positivity.
