It’s no secret that Covid-19 has turned most of our lives upside down. Adjusting to a new normal can be uncomfortable and stressful, and the closures or limited hours of your go-to wellness or fitness spots may make it even more difficult to manage stress and find inner peace among the chaos. However, maintaining your wellness and practicing self-care is more important than ever.
This 30-Day Self-Care Challenge is a great way to prioritize self-care, while socially distancing in the comfort of your home. Each activity is designed to focus on either our mental, physical or emotional health — which are all equally important elements to staying healthy and feeling your best during these, particularly difficult times.
If you’ve found it difficult to focus on yourself and self-care lately, consider giving this 30-Day Self-Care Challenge a try! Over the course of a month, the challenge will have you take a few minutes out of your day to prioritize self-care, wellness, and to treat yourself. This is a great stay-at-home activity to break up your day — you could even encourage a friend or family member to do the challenge with you!
The 30-Day Printable Self-Care Calendar and Self-Care Stickers below can be downloaded and printed out to help you track your progress each day as you complete each challenge task, and will hopefully give you something to look forward to each day.
Ultimately, this challenge is for you, so feel empowered to modify the daily challenges and create a plan that best supports your needs.
