Time flies by so quickly! Can you believe it’s already August 1st?! This year is going to be over before we know it. This month, I’m trying something a little bit different. I've committed to a 31 Day Wellness Challenge and I invite you to experience it with me. My friend Alex Michael May let me know all about this awesome initiative and since I am all about self-care these days and allowing myself to indulge in it, the timing couldn't have been more perfect.
The Wellness Challenge is divided into 5 categories: soul, body, beauty, mind and home. There are small activities– one for each day – that coordinate with the week’s theme. I highly recommend bringing in an accountability buddy, someone who will also benefit from the challenge. I think it’s really important to remember that even though self-care is something super personal and specific, we need community and encouragement throughout our individual journeys.
While I am very excited to get started on this challenge, I am also focused on abandoning an attitude of perfection. This is going to be an awesome tool to help me frame my goals and priorities for the month. Some parts of the challenge may happen a day later, others a week early, and some not at all. The purpose of it is to promote a sense of happiness and well-being in my own life this month, not to necessarily check off every single box. Just remember, done is better than perfect! I would much rather complete this amazing challenge in a way that works for me than to not start it at all out of fear that I won’t finish "perfectly".
Well, are you planning to complete the 31 Day Wellness Challenge with me? What day is most exciting to you? Be sure to let me know in the comments!
