Last January, I embarked on a year-long challenge: A Year of Mindfulness. Each week (or thereabouts!) I’d write about that week’s challenge and what I did for it. For the most part – it was great. But it was a lot to keep up with at times, and some of the tasks weren’t actually possible to do whilst in lockdown – hence why I ended up only publishing 39 weeks worth. Still, I think it was a good effort and I really enjoyed doing it.
I wanted to do something similar this year that would provide me with a similar focus, but maybe with a little less commitment. I spent some time thinking how I’d like to do this and after much deliberation, I think I’ve come up with the perfect thing!
This year’s activity will be A Year of Self-Care!
Self-care is a buzzword if ever there was one, but you know what? It’s a buzzword for a reason. As this article so eloquently puts it, ‘it’s the difference between thriving and collapse.’ Self-care is something I’ve really learned to prioritise over the last year, but I know there’s still room to grow and develop further, hence this year’s challenge!
At the start of each month, I’ll be outlining what the month’s task is and how I did with the previous month’s task. I can’t wait to get going – and so without further ado, let’s get started. You can head over to the first post of the series: A Year of Self-Care: January – Giving Up Facebook to read more about the first activity.
As always, get involved! All of my tasks will be little to no cost, meaning you can do it too! And don’t forget to keep me posted in the comments!
