Are you ready to start a creative photo challenge that will inspire you to start focusing on taking care of YOU? This fun daily photography challenge will get you creating self-care moments that will make you feel present and inspired! Hopefully, you will embrace routines and rituals that honor you. Sign up here to have the printables delivered directly to your inbox. After you have downloaded the Challenge Sheet (pictured above), print it out, and fill it with your ideas for how you will accomplish each prompt for the day. Planning ahead keeps you organized, saves time and will keep you consistently posting. Each day you will take a photo that best expresses that prompt and post on Instagram along with the hashtag.
More to Come
In addition to this fun challenge, I am kicking off a series of blog posts and videos that keep this discussion and focus on self-care going all month. I will be sharing my self-care planner, resources I turn to for inspiration, and tips for managing bouts of depression and hard days. I have made self-care a bigger part of my life since the beginning of the year. Despite having so many awesome things happening for me in 2016, I still have bouts of depression and experienced some truly bad days. Making self-care a focus has already paid off and I will continue to make it a priority. And as always, when I am successful at something I have a burning desire to share that with others. So I will be sharing lots of ideas that have worked for me and why. Hopefully, you will find something that inspires you if you have struggles too.
Let’s Do This!
To kick things off, I’m sharing my Pinterest board with over a 100 pinned blog posts which are packed with resources. I personally schedule a little self-care reading every evening and most of the time I choose a few blog posts from this board to read. Use my board as a starting place to create your own, and fill it full of ideas and resources for making self-care a bigger part of your life. Think of it like your own personal library or even an emergency plan on a really hard day.
In addition, you can also print out the Self-Care Goals Insert (below) for your planner to help you plan out what you will focus on this month.
The Self Care Photo Challenge kicks off today, September 1st, but feel free to jump in any time. Find me on Instagram to see what I have been posting and join in yourself!
