30 Day Self Love Challenge

Here’s a breakdown for the 30 Day Self Love Challenge into 4 weeks. From Day 1 – Prep Day to Day 30 – Roundup Day.

Prep Day

So to kick off the challenge, start by grabbing yourself a pretty journal and write it down how you feel, where you’re currently at – your level of self-love and self-esteem – and where you want to be. You don’t have to dig deep to much, as at this stage it’s more about getting things out of your head and on to paper.

All done? Well, thats awesome. The challenge has offically began and you’re now ready to move onto Week 1.

WEEK 1

So now it’s offically the first week of the 30 Day Self Love Challenge. So let’s get started!

Day 1 :

Firstly, write down 5 things that you like about yourself, and stick them on your mirror, wall or wardrobe door. You need to make sure to you’ll put a notebook/journal somewhere you’ll see it every day when you wake up keep it in the same place for the duration of the challenge.

Day 2 :

Think of 1-3 positive affirmations about yourself. Get yourself into a routine and read the everyday – make it part of your morning or evening routine.

Day 3 :

Decide one physical insecurity that you ave and then work on feeling happier in the way that you are looking for.

Day 4 :

Go into nature – walk, jog or run – and go further than you’d normally go. Feel the blood pumping through our body and appreciate your body and everything that it does for you. Take a moment to value your health and make the decision for one small activity you will continue today every week to better improve your health and physical wellbeing.

Day 9 :

Be more self-aware in good step to self-improvement. First choose one area to self improve, then set one specific thing that you want to work on. Create an action plan for the improvement to becoming the best version of yourself – the version that your want to be. The main key is ‘Self Love’.

Also get rid of activities or traits that doesn’t feel like the true you, instead fill up that empty space with more things that you enjoy – every work goal, wellness intention and daily schedule should support becoming more of who you are really.

Day 10 :

Really appreciate yourself and who you are here and now. Remind yourself that you don’t have to be perfect….no one is perfect, as if everyone was the same then the world would be a very boring place.

Always know that you are worthy of love, even as a ‘work progress’, let be real….we are all in working progress. Perfection doesn’t exist. Take a look at your life, and see what areas have too much pressure – learn to be kinder to yourself! Read just your expectations and ease the tension. It’s like lifting a weight off your shoulders, and create more space for a better sense of self-love and appreciation.

Day 13 :

Wear an outfit that makes you feel good – one that’s BOLD – but also one that feels like you. Do your hair and make up the way you like to have it. Then go somewhere and hold your head up high…You’ve got this!

Day 14 :

Today you just sit back, relax and watch your favourite movie. So grab some popcorn or chocolate to go with it. Indulge without feeling guilty, as you don’t have to be ‘good’ all the time.
