Setting Aside Time

 

IMG_0079

I have decided to do a 30 day self care challenge- join in if you wish, I have asked one friend to join me and she is quite excited to do it.

The challenge, in theory, is a simple one. Take a few minutes every day just for yourself-it can certainly be longer but at least 20 minutes when you are thinking of only you.

Maybe you would like to take a walk? take a few minutes out of the middle of a busy day and just read- go have a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop and relax, do some yoga, whatever makes you feel like you are doing something just for you- nobody else.

You would think that this would be a simple task but I have called it a challenge because for myself, it IS both a challenge AND an indulgence; one that I don’t seem to do often enough and I am guessing that is true for lots of you too.To make it more credible for myself I am going to record what I do each day in my planner so that I can reflect back on it after the 30 days are up. Maybe it will inspire me, and others, to continue.

So give it a go if you are game- share what you are doing from time to time- maybe we can give each other ideas of what self care really means to one another-

Starting tomorrow, Aug. 1, 2016 the challenge is on! Enjoy it.

I wonder how I will begin….

  1. I’m in Ellen. This first week in August is extremely busy for me and a completely different routine so it will be a challenge. If I can make it through then it should be easy for the rest of the month. Great idea!

  2. Great challenge! That coffee looks like exactly the kind of 20 mins I needed yesterday. I’ll have to start tomorrow… xo
