    I am so excited to be taking part in the 30 day Self-Care Challenge! This lines up perfectly with my intention to take care of my self while turning over a new leaf–free from un-needed stress, anxiety and extra weight holding me back! Can you share some examples of healthy intentions made for each day?

    thank you ladies for helping guide us through this! <3

    Dianna- we a so happy you are joining us in this challenge. We will be happy to share from our own experience about our healthy intentions and hope others will do the same.
    After doing the life balance assessment I realized that I wanted to focus even more on taking care of my body and also having fun! My intention was to do this in a simple doable way that worked for me. So knowing that my schedule everyday is different I first needed to be flexible with my plan. The most consistent thing I did throughout the challenge was to team up with Yael and text her my self-care intentions every morning. Then I made a commitment to drink more water everyday, do some energy exercises ( which I will share in future posts) and get some kind of exercise at least 3 times a week. What I found was that these small easy changes led to a stronger commitment and greater desire to do more.
    The fun can be more difficult at times as I can take care of everyone else to the neglect of myself. But today was different. Even though we started the challenge today, I enjoyed a houseful of family and gave myself permission to wait till late afternoon to check in with everyone in the challenge. I have played with the three grandchildren and enjoyed lots of laughs and good conversation with the rest of the family. These connections nurture my spirit and support my health.
    So the moral to this story is to discover what works for you, team up with a partner, take small steps and adjust as you go.
