By now, you’ve probably heard a lot of talk about self-care. One of my goals for 2018 is to prioritize self-care in my life, and I think a lot of other people are wanting to focus more on self-care too. But when you hear the term “self-care” what do you think of? A day at the spa getting pampered or painting your nails? Those are great ways to relax but self-care is about so much more than that!
Before I go any deeper, in case you’re someone who actually hasn’t heard much about self-care and you’re wondering what the big deal is, here are just a few of the benefits:
- Self-care improves your confidence & self-esteem
- Self-care improves both your mental health & stress levels
- Self-care improves your physical health
- Self-care helps you get to know yourself better
I’ve created a 10 Days of Self-Care challenge and I wanted to share it with anyone else who may need this in their life.
My hope is that this challenge can help us realize ways in which we need to care for ourselves better, and help us to make it more of a habit – especially those who are more inexperienced in the area of proper self-care. I hope you enjoy it!
