#SelfCareFeb Days 26-28: Plan an Epic Adventure

#SelfCareFeb Days 26-28

We have reached the last days of #SelfCareFeb! Thanks so much for joining me and be sure to subscribe to see what I’m working on next!

I love to travel. It is a fast-track to self discovery, you get to relax, and you get to eat as much food as you want because…. #yolo. As much as I travel, I don’t really feel that I have been to many different destinations. I tend to visit the same locations multiple times. For example, I’ve been to London three times, I’ve been to Los Angeles twice, and I’ve been to New York more times than I can count. In an effort to get myself out of my travel comfort zone, I am embarking upon a 30 by 30 challenge where I’m going to try and visit as many different cities as I can before I turn 30. However, I have quickly realized that if I am going to reach such an ambitious goal, I need to have a plan. Continue reading

#SelfCareFeb Day 25: Reflect

#SelfCareFeb Day 25

We are just a few days away from the end of #SelfCareFeb. This series has definitely been a learning experience, and I have enjoyed reading your comments and connecting with you all! Today, we are going to re-visit some questions that I asked at the beginning of the month in relation to self-care. Now that you have had a month full of #selfcarefeb challenges, let’s see how far we’ve come and what we still want to work on as we continue to incorporate self-care into our daily lives.

#SelfCareFeb Day 24: The Handbag Overhaul

#SelfCareFeb Day 24

This might be my favorite challenge yet! Today’s #SelfCareFeb is all about getting organized and clearing clutter. Be honest, when was the last time you cleaned out your handbag/wallet/purse? When I dumped mine out, I found $10 in dollar bills, old food, a lint roller, a broken mirror (doesn’t that mean bad luck??), and an unused Starbucks gift card. Having a messy and unkempt bag can cause unnecessary stress and worry. Carrying around a heavy bag can also affect your posture and cause shoulder pain. If you constantly lose things in your bag or are convinced that you are becoming a bag lady, this challenge is for you. Grab your handbag, find a comfy place to sit, and let’s get started!

#SelfCareFeb Day 23: Give

#SelfCareFeb Day 23

We are in the home stretch! I can’t believe February is almost over. Today’s #SelfCareFeb challenge is to take some time out to see where you could give more in your life. I am not talking about financial giving here. I’m focusing on the gift of your time. Ask your self how can you take a moment out of your day or create some regular time in your schedule to give selflessly to another.  Continue reading

#SelfCareFeb Day 22: Practice Gratitude

#SelfCareFeb Day 22

It is time for another Mindful Monday! When times are tough or you feel that you have a lot on your plate, it can be hard to practice gratitude. Everything seems like it is going wrong and it is so much easier to choose to focus on the things that make you feel worse. However, whatever you focus on multiplies, so by choosing to think about things that deflate you rather than uplift you can have a negative, cumulative snowball effect. What would happen if you made the conscious decision to be grateful for even the smallest things? Today’s #SelfCareFeb is all about making the choice to be grateful in every situation. Continue reading

#SelfCareFeb Days 19-21: Expand Your Tribe

#SelfCareFeb Days 19-21

A few years ago, I was introduced to the book “Tribes” by Seth Godin. The book is all about people’s tendencies to want to belong to groups, whether they be religious, cultural, or hobby-related. Lot’s of people get stuck in the same “tribes” for years, even after they have long outgrown the people within them and do not share the same ideals and aspirations anymore. This weekend’s #selfcarefeb challenge is to expand your current tribe (or create a new one!) by connecting with like-minded people. Continue reading

#SelfCareFeb Day 18: Power Up

#SelfCareFeb Day 18

Your surroundings are a direct reflection of your life. If you live in a cluttered and unorganized environment, chances are that you are frazzled, have a ton of things on your to-do list, and are stressed out. Have you ever noticed that right after you sweep the floor of your kitchen or vacuum your carpet, your energy and the energy in that room feel completely transformed and renewed? That is because when you clean or organize, you make space for new energy to flow into your life. Today’s #SelfCareFeb is for those of you who need to get more organized but often find yourself pressed for time. It is a strategy that I call Power Up. Continue reading
