Take on our FREE 30 Day Self Care Challenge and do one thing every day to support your mental, emotional, and physical health. Make a conscious effort to get into healthy habits and – I promise you – 30 days from now you’ll feel a noticeable difference to the way you think and feel. So you ready? Then let’s get stuck in!
The 30 Day Self Care Challenge
Our 30 day self care challenge is simple… For the next 30 days, you will do one thing every day, that will positively impact your wellbeing.
This list can be a base – that you can tweak to make it your own. Or you can follow our self care challenge day-by-day, as a set itinerary.
If you do decide to go for the latter option, below this list, you’ll also find a printable version, which you can use to tick off each daily task as you go along.
So, without further ado, let’s get started with the first day of the challenge!
Create a gratitude journal and for the next 30 days, wake up and write down 1-3 things you are grateful for every single morning, reading it again every night before bed.
Go for a gentle walk, and become aware of the beauty around you. Allow your mind to switch off for a little while, and simply appreciate where you are right now.
Up your water intake! Aim to drink 8 glasses / 2 litres of water today.
Watch a TedTalk on something that will help, inspire or develop you.
Call a friend and have a catch up!
Work on removing one limiting belief that may be holding you back. Click here for a step by step guide for how to do it.
Have a digital detox. Spend the day off the internet and social media, instead filling your time with things that make you feel good! (If you find this too challenging, then allocate a section of the day where you will do this… baby steps!)
Get into the habit of writing daily, weekly and monthly goals, to keep you moving forward.
Try a morning yoga session. (This can be online, there’s plenty available for beginners.)
Put your feet up and spend some time listening to your favourite music. Or, blast it out, having a good sing whilst in the shower! #TheSimpleThingsInLife
Start to develop some positive affirmations, or even your own personal mantra.
It’s time to declutter! Clean or clear out something in your home and feel the satisfaction afterwards.
Allow yourself to binge watch your favourite tv programme, or switch off with a good movie… The key here? To not feel bad about it! You’re not wasting time if you’re getting the rest you need and enjoying it.
Do 10 minutes of journaling, writing down your thoughts, feelings and maybe even reflections of this 30 day self care challenge so far. If you find it helpful, make journaling a habit for the rest of the challenge.
Make a healthy meal plan for the week and stick to it. After all, healthy body, healthy mind.
Write a bucket list of experiences, all the things you want to do in your life, and set a date for when you’re going to tick the next one off! (It’s good to have things to look forward to!)
Have a mid-week pamper night. Treat yourself to a nice, hot bubble bath; sit back with a magazine and go through your favourite beauty regime.
Spend (at least) 30 minutes doing something creative that you enjoy.
Work on saying “yes” to you and “no” to the things you don’t really want to do … starting with one thing, today. This helps to build your self-worth.
Learn about the art of mindfulness meditation and see how you can incorporate this into your life.
Have an early night. Get to bed earlier than usual and give yourself a chance to catch up on sleep!
Go the entire day without complaining… Then see if you can extend it for the week.
Wear an outfit that makes you feel great (even if you’re not really doing anything!) and look at how you can further develop your personal style.
Start a new book and take time out to read it – even if it’s just starting 10-20 minutes of it today.
Take better care of your skin. Wash, exfoliate, cleanse, tone, have a face mask, moisturise. We’re talking the whole works! Your face will be glowing by tomorrow.
Release all the tension with a full body stretch. Get into the habit of doing this regularly. Every morning. Every night. Release, release, release!
Learn something new! It could be a hobby, an online exercise class, a skill or even just expanding your knowledge in a certain area.
Clean out your social media, unfollowing fake friends or negative people and finding new pages that support and encourage you. Like this one! For more on this, click here for the toxic detox. It makes all the difference.
Write a letter to your future self, so that you can look back and see how far you’ve come.
Reflect on everything you’ve learnt this month and the benefits it’s had on how you feel. Then see what healthy habits you can incorporate long-term into your life… and commit to it!
