We know the last year has been extra tough, and with that in mind - we want to learn all about the ways our community practices self-care! You may be asking yourself: what is self-care? It's just what it sounds like: doing something to improve your mental, social, emotional, spiritual, or physical health.

Here are some examples of self care:

  • Finding ways to get enough sleep
  • Making an effort to eat healthy and regularly
  • Getting enough physical activity
  • Setting aside time for relaxation, like reading or meditating or taking a walk
  • Organizing your home or workspace
  • Creating safe ways to interact with friends and family online/outside
  • Starting a bullet journal or organizer to write down your feelings

Whatever you're doing to relieve a little stress, we'd love to hear about it!

The Self-Care Challenge is closed.
