“Self-care” can be any activity (or lack of activity) that makes you feel recharged. Self-care is being mindful to what your mind and body need, not ignoring or numbing yourself to what’s required to feel and do your best.
Are you ready to commit to 30 days of continual self-care? There is nothing more important. None of these acts of self care are “hard” to do, and yet many of us will find excuses why we can’t complete 30 consecutive days of self-love. Are you up for the Sisoo self-care challenge?
I’ve listed each day’s prompt below, but scroll to the bottom of the post to grab the printable you can keep with you for the next thirty days.
There’s no need to do them in the order the are listed, you can jump around to whichever one feels “right” for the day. You’ll find the printable to be extra satisfying because you can cross each item off as you achieve them.
