Last Friday it was announced that as from Sunday midnight, Belgium would go into lockdown 2.
I think we can all agree that:
Anyway, all weekend I was thinking about how I could help, and I got the idea to do a challenge…
And then… I noticed that Melissa from ‘mellow doodles’ had the same idea and since her graphics are much nicer than mine, I thought: why not ‘use’ hers (while giving her all the credit, of course), and add some extra tips?
She calls it ‘a month of selfcare’ (this is also the official hashtag).
How does it work?
Goals of the challenge (her words):
While my definition of self-care is broader (and possibly not as ‘nice’ as hers), I have no problem whatsoever to promote this one. On the contrary. Let’s do this. Because we’re worth it!
I will try and post some tips on a daily basis. Hers + some ‘interpretations’.
Oh, yes, what I really liked about her is that after 2 days she came up with a ‘gentle version’… only 3 alternatives/week. And this makes so much sense… For those who are totally overwhelmed, the ‘original’ one can be too much already. If I think about my own workload and state during the first lockdown, I would definitely have chosen the ‘gentle’ one!
I can’t stress it enough: adapt this to suit your life and personality. Try them all, pick one and do it every day, pick one per week, choose your own, even if it’s not on the list…
Because… #youalwayshaveachoice #YAHAC
But… DO take 5 to 20 minutes to do something for yourself every day. ‘Because you are worth it’ ;-D
By the way… I still think that my contribution can be helpful too:
