Happy April, friends! I hope so far April has been very good to you.
I am very big on talking about self-care and reducing our stress levels, but honestly, I’ve been kind of crappy at taking my own advice. I really don’t like being a hypocrite, so I decided enough is enough of my own mishegas and getting in my own way, it’s time to take some action.
Every time a new month rolls around it feels like a fresh start and so I thought it would be fun this month if we did a little challenge to help reduce the stress in our lives since *fun fact* April is stress awareness month! And I promise to do this alongside you because I can make excuses out the wazoo for why I don’t have time for self-care while preaching that you do, and I am not doing that anymore!
So, here is the challenge I offer you!
1) Carve out 10 minutes per day for self-care—whatever that means to you and whatever your heart desires!
2) Find 10 minutes per day to get outside without looking at your phone while you’re out there!
That’s it! PUT IT IN YOUR CALENDAR, SET A REMINDER, DO WHATEVER IT IS YOU HAVE TO DO.
This isn’t hard or complicated, but it’s somewhere to start, and starting a new good habit and learning to take care of ourselves is so important and can be so very difficult if we don’t make the space for it. So, here is the space. It’s twenty minutes per day. Are you up for the challenge? Can we look at this as an opportunity for kindness to ourselves that we so desperately deserve?
Who’s with me? Should I ask some more questions?
Anyway, I love you, I am excited to be starting off this month with you and I hope you have a wonderful day. XOXOX, CAMDW
