Ah, February… the month where love is in the air and you are flooded with pink and red, hearts and chocolate. I love chocolate so this month has its perks but it can also be a month that is very difficult for many. So I thought I would make an attempt to shift the focus from couples in love to reconnecting and falling in love with who you are instead with a 28 day self-love challenge!!
Self-care is touted by many to be beneficial for us and assists in maintaining a healthy balance of mental, emotional, and physical health. Engaging in it regularly can help you be more present with others and prevent us from feeling burned out and tired. But self-love takes it a step further. Self-love is having genuine acceptance of who you are deeply caring about your own well-being and satisfaction in life. One needs self-love in order to find the value in making time for self-care.
Self-love can look so different for so many.
It may mean slowing down because your life is so full and busy.
It may mean speeding up because you have been denying a part of yourself to let loose, take risks, and let the wild side out.
It may mean paying attention to how you talk to yourself and taking a break from self-judgement.
It may even mean reconnecting to yourself and understanding yourself better and how you function.
Sound like something you could use right about now? How would you like to join me in a challenge of loving yourself for the month of February? The 28 challenges will include various things that will encourage you to connect to yourself and develop a love and acceptance of who you are. I will wrap up our month with a drawing where active participants will be entered into a giveaway where they will be eligible to receive a one month gift box from Therabox!! Therabox is a therapist curated box of happiness filled with joyful ingredients delivered straight to your door! How great is that!?
