30 Day Self-Care Challenge

For the next 30 days, we’re going to chose 3-5 self-care items and commit to doing them every day. I’ve included a link to a habit tracker below. I’ve also included a list of possible self-care activities you can include.

Some of these items may seem silly at first glance, but–speaking from experience–when you’re struggling with depression or anxiety or you’re totally overwhelmed by life as a single mom, even the simplest of self-care activities can be a struggle. I can’t tell you how many times as a single mom I forgot deodorant, because my morning routine was interrupted by “Mom, I can’t find my…”

So… Find 3-5 items from the list below or add your own and commit to 30 days of loving you!
