Do you have little time, but do you want the full benefit of improving and relaxing yourself? Tag along for the 30 day self-care challenge!
Why I created this self-care challenge
After a less than exemplary pregnancy and labor, I decided it was time to focus a little on my well-being. Give myself some tender love and care, to make sure I can remain a stable person – and be the best mom I can be.
When I looked for a suitable challenge I found a lot of options that sounded valuable. Unfortunately none completely suited my situation as a new mother (with a bottle-denying baby). This is why I decided to develop my own self-care challenge, and made it to suit to anyone who wants to focus daily on practicing self-care for a full month with limited resources. All you need is the comfort of your own home!
30 day self-care challenge
The daily challenges are divided into three self-care categories: Mind, Body and Soul. These three subjects will rotate evenly throughout the duration of the challenge. “Mind” will focus on your more practical mental means, while the “Soul” challenges will have somewhat more spiritual roots. The “Body” days will focus on your physical well-being. Take a look at the infographic below, and feel free to use it during the challenge, or share it on your social media!
30-day self-care challenge pointers
I guess most daily topics speak for themselves. But if you need a little help or inspiration, here are some pointers to get you started:
Day 1: Watch a TedX talk and be inspired
Just browse the TedX library and find a topic to your liking. Generally a talk only takes 10 to 15 minutes to view!
Day 5: Stretch all your muscles
If you’re unfamiliar with a full-body muscle stretching routine, just look one up on Youtube. I personally like this video by FitnessBlender.
Day 7: Research an unfamiliar topic
Wikipedia actually has a feature where you can browse an article at random.
Day 8: Cook a healthy meal
Need some inspiration? Make sure to check out this article about my favorite healthy food blogs.
Day 9: Practice meditation
There are some excellent guided meditation apps out there. One of my favorites is Simply Being by Meditation Oasis.
Day 11: Practice yoga
Yoga with Adriene has plenty of great routines available on her Youtube channel.
Day 13: Watch a documentary
Vice has numerous excellent documentaries which you can watch for free online.
Day 27: Say positive affirmations
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept or need some inspiration, make sure to check out this article which I wrote prior to doing Brain Tracy’s positive affirmation challenge!
Day 29: Try a new physical exercise
This might sound more complicated than it really is. Check out my favorite at home workouts for inspiration!
Naturally I’ll be logging my progress in a weekly challenge report. Want to tag along? Feel free to use the hashtag #WFWChallenge to share your progress with me and other peeps. And if you’re curious to what I’m up to day by day, make sure to follow me on Twitter!
