“Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.”
? Hello and welcome to Day 6 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 mental self-care.
✅ Make a Feel-Good playlist
✅ Share your playlist with us in the Self-Care Challenge Community Group on Facebook.
Music is the language of our soul
One single song can have a lot of emotion and meaning behind it. How often do we find ourselves humming along to a special tune or being drawn to music that reflects our mood?
Dive deep down into your memory bank and find those golden oldies then create a playlist that makes you feel good and if it gets you dancing, well we credit you with bonus points!
Music has been scientifically proven to make you feel happier. When you listen to your favourite songs your brain releases dopamine, which can lead to feelings of happiness, excitement, and joy.
It can improve running and there has been research that shows that music can help you eat less.
Listening to music lowers your cortisol levels which means it reduces stress – even more, a reason to plug in your iPod and sing along in your car.
Researchers have also found that music helps you learn and recall information better
