Day 23 – Know Your Self Worth

Know your self worth.

We have had 22 days of how to better care for yourself….but the recommendations are useless if you do not acknowledge your own self worth. You. YOU, with your past…..YOU, with your weaknesses….YOU….are worthy of care, respect, love and happiness. It’s time for you to claim it.

This will take courage, boldness and PRACTICE! Start today. YOU are worthy.

Day 22 – Pick Three

Had enough self care yet??!

Well here’s a little list sure to have something for everyone!!

CHALLENGE – Pick 3 and do them!!……..

Scratch off a lurker on your to-do list, something that’s been there for ages and you’ll never do.

Change up the way you make decisions. Decide something with your heart if you usually use your head. Or if you tend to go with your heart, decide with your head.

Go cloud-watching. Lie on your back, relax, and watch the sky.

Take another route to work. Mixing up your routine in small ways creates new neural pathways in the brain to keep it healthy.

Pay complete attention to something you usually do on autopilot, perhaps brushing your teeth, driving, eating, or performing your morning routine.

Goof around for a bit. Schedule in five minutes of “play” (non-directed activity) several times throughout your day.

Create a deliberate habit, and routinize something small in your life by doing it, in the same way, each day—what you wear on Tuesdays, or picking up the dental floss before you brush.

Fix a small annoyance at home that’s been nagging you—a button lost, a drawer that’s stuck, a light bulb that’s gone.

Punctuate your day with a mini-meditation with one minute of awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations; one minute of focused attention on breathing; and one minute of awareness of the body as a whole.

Be selfish. Do one thing today just because it makes you happy.

Do a mini-declutter. Recycle three things from your wardrobe that you don’t love or regularly wear.

Unplug for an hour. Switch everything to airplane mode and free yourself from the constant bings of social media and email.

Get out of your comfort zone, even if it’s just talking to a stranger at the bus stop.

Edit your social media feeds, and take out any negative people. You can just “mute” them; you don’t have to delete them.

Day 20 – Forgiveness

Today’s challenge is…… forgiveness. For yourself, for others….who do you need to release?

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Day 19 – Encourage Someone

Encourage someone.

Pick one and do it today!!

*Call someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile and let them know you appreciate them.

*Write someone a note you see every day but don’t take the time to acknowledge.
(Hint: SPOUSE)

*Email/text/message a friend and let them know how thankful you are for being part of your life. Or make their day and share a pic on social media and give them props for being awesome!!

*Email/text/message an individual you may not know well but has encouraged/inspired/taught you on some level……

And be specific!
