“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”

? Hello and welcome to Day 3 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 we are going to focus on our emotional health.
✅ Take a moment to name your emotions without judging them.
✅ Share your experience with us in Self-care Challenge Community Group on Facebook.
Emotions cannot harm you
Identifying and accepting our emotions can lead to improved health. The key is to recognise them for what they are, accept them, letting go of attempts to control them and learning that emotions themselves cannot harm you
Some questions to help you identify and name these emotions:
- What are we feeling right now?
- Where in our bodies are we feeling it?
Emotions are a central path of our core consciousness and provide feedback relating to our wants and needs. These can be positive or negative and result in us taking action.
For example, if we feel the emotion of fear we will most likely look to avoid the situation causing it. Emotions are information pieces of information and can be used to solve problems.
And of course, it is also important to remember that each person has a different emotional temperament
So today take some time to foster a curious accepting attitude towards your emotions that will allow for awareness and attunement to one’s feelings (and the feelings of others).
