Self-Care Challenge Fall Edition — Autumn has arrived! Have you had the time to enjoy it yet?
It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day hustle and forget to enjoy the simple joys each season has to offer. And autumn comes packed full of cozy little gifts! We just have to be present enough to appreciate them. And allowing ourselves to take this breather in life is not always what happens.
Here’s the thing, consistently practicing self-care is hard! I’m sure as heck guilty of not practicing enough of it! Making our well-being a priority is a difficult thing to do, especially when it’s something we haven’t been accustomed to doing.
But just because something’s difficult, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep working on it. And it sure doesn’t mean it’s not worth fighting for!
Today, I’m yearning for some self-care – Autumn style!
I’ve put together a simple 30-Day Self-Care Challenge (Fall edition) that I’ll be completing, and I hope you’ll join me! Feel free to mix things up and add your own self-care activities to it! Remember, self-care is personal to YOU!
And when I say self-care, I’m not merely referring to exercise and healthy eating. I’m referring to all types of self-care – emotional, sensory, and spiritual included! So, welcome your indulgent cravings and bring out your inner child! This challenge includes simple ways to be mindful, present, and celebrate life’s simple joys.
Happy self-care, my sweet friends! <3
