Caring for yourself!

10-Day Self-Care Challenge

Everybody now a days is busy.

Life is fast-paced and hectic. And many of us spend so much time taking care of others or working, we forget to stop, rest, reset, and take a little care of ourselves!

Join us for a 10-day Self-Care Challenge where you will do one act of self-care everyday for the next 10 days. 

Self-care is crucial for our physical, emotional and mental well-being. 

After the challenge, you will most-likely still have a to-do list and full life, but you will feel more rested and grateful instead of frantic and overwhelmed.

It is amazing how taking a little time to care for yourself can actually help you be more productive in your day. You have to fill your tank before you head out on a journey!

I encourage you to try to complete each days challenge sometime in the morning. But if that is not happening, complete them when you can!

DAY 1 – GRATITUDE
Take a moment to look out the window and feel gratitude for the sunrise, nature, your warm house, food in your cupboards, anything that you may often take for granted.

DAY 2 – SEND A NOTE TO A FRIEND
Write a letter, send an email, or even just send a text to a friend or family member and share a kind word with them. Tell then something you like about them or just let them know you are thankful for them.

DAY 3 – ENJOY FRESH FLOWERS
Buy or pick fresh flowers and set them out in your home.

DAY 4 – ENJOY A HEALTHY MEAL
Make a healthy meal and sit down to enjoy it alone or with loved ones.

DAY 5 – PAY IT FORWARD
Pay it forward: buy coffee or lunch for someone today. (Ideas: send a coffee gift card to a client, bring coffee to work or a meeting, bring something to a neighbor)

DAY 6 – GIVE COMPLIMENTS
Give 3 people a compliment today. It feels good to lift others up. 

DAY 7 – MOVE YOUR BODY
Do 5-10 minutes of yoga, stretching, or walking.

DAY 8 – FORGIVE
Take a moment to reflect on your struggles, mistakes, failures, and inadequacies. Then forgive yourself for your shortcomings. Treat yourself with same compassion you would a close friend. Show yourself kindness rather than harsh self-judgment.

DAY 9 – MAKE A HEALTHY SMOOTHIE
Make a smoothie with at least one fruit and one vegetable.

DAY 10 – BREATHE
Close your eyes for 5 minutes today and just REST and breathe!
