Self-Care Challenge Day 2: Consume positive news

“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.”
Amit Ray

🎯 Today’s Mission:

Yesterday you chose 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 choose something along the same lines!

To successfully complete today’s mission:

  • Consume positive news.

    Instead of being helpless, we want you to be informed, engaged, and optimistic. Look for positive news stories today! 

    The saying goes that you are what you think of, why not guide your thoughts to a more positive worldview? 

    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.

💡 More Info:

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 negativity our cortisol levels rise thus spiking our anxiety, depression, and paranoia levels which in turn leads to us consuming more negative news.

Today let’s immerse ourselves in kindness and try only to consume some positive news.

Kindness is also an inherent trait of our primitive selves. As social beings who form communities and thrive on connection, we need kindness to survive as well. 

Steer your brain in that direction with little bits of positivity.
