Self Care Challenge Day 7: What Makes You Happy

21 Day Self Care Challenge - Day Seven

Hey lovely person!

Firstly – WELL DONE!!

You’ve got to day 7, so that’s a whole week of self care!

7 Days of making yourself a priority, I’m absolutely delighted for you, and hope that you are proud of yourself.

You are building solid foundations for a better future. And have you noticed that all of these challenges are just very small, doable changes? There is nothing big and scary to contend with – and that’s because small changes done regularly add up to big changes, and in this case, the big change is in your belief system – the belief that yes, it’s okay for me to think of and take care of myself.

We’ve covered a lot. You’ve started a journal, explored your sleep patterns, touched on mindfulness, looked at how to get more leisure activities into your life and explored your work/life balance. That’s a lot in a few days!

Let’s celebrate!

Acknowledging your wins and celebrating successes is also great for your self care, so don’t be shy.

So well done! Keep on going -there’s plenty more good stuff you’ll really enjoy to come!

After yesterdays pretty intense task, I have a delightful task for you today that I know you’re going to love.

What makes you happy?

Just get a drink, get comfy and grab your journal. Write 100 things that make you happy. You have 30 minutes.

Let your mind wander, and think of anything and everything that gives you pleasure – that perfect pen, the smell of coffee, the sound of leaves when you step on them…anything! You’ll probably slow down at some point and have to think a bit harder, but stick with it.

When you have your list, you can work on really appreciating those things – stopping to take in the aroma of coffee/tea in the morning, for example, or take delight in opening a new jar of coffee/tea and taking in it’s rich scent…yum!

And work on making sure you have as much access to these things in your life as possible – for example, get rid of all those scratchy pens you don’t like.

Tomorrow, it’s a simple thing you can do to vastly increase your physical health, and not a gym in sight!

Stay tuned for Day 8.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
