I am one day shy of completing my 7 Day Self Care Challenge and it has been a blast. Some of the features that I appreciated most were the limited time spent on social media and the extra quiet time.
We all need a break sometimes.
I had four big take-aways from my week doing the Self Care Challenge. I feel refreshed and more focused than I have over the last few months…dare I say an actual recharge has happened.
Self Care even with practice did not necessarily shut my mind off completely. I still had moments of overwhelm but it helped to slow my thinking and processing down. I really enjoyed meditation as a method to stay centered.
I was able to be more present for my kids. I have two children and they are so different but because I was more present minded this week, I noticed that I was able to connect with my kids more deeply and cater my communication to match each of their personalities more intentionally. As a result my kids were more responsive and engaged with me than I recall happening before. It could be my children reflecting my example and if so, that would be totally priceless.
Dealing with disappointment, this week I experienced a business related disappointment. I booked a speaking event and promoted the event, shared my excitement with my friends and family and due to limits on communication, my speaking at the event did not happen. It took a few days to recover from the ordeal but I believe the Self Care Challenge allowed for me to recover in a few days because I was more present. This is the best reminder that Self Care does help speed up recovery from high stress and high emotion experiences.
Finally, I feel more clarity from my social media vacation this week. As a result I find that I am less interested in social media all together. As a result I have spent more time listening to music, reading, reaching out to friends and getting into word finds.
I enjoyed the challenge and encourage you give it a try! More information can be found in the previous post, just click the link below for full access.
