Hey everyone,

It's been a couple of weeks since we last did a weekly challenge but we're back with a challenge this week :) 

This week we're doing a self-care method challenge. Self-care is so important and something we should make time for everyday. Your challenge is to take time for yourself everyday this week. Comment below what you've done each day to look after yourself :) 

Remember to be kind to yourself!

If you have any ideas of things we can do for the next weekly challenge head over to this thread to share your ideas. Don't forget to vote on next week's challenge ideas as well!

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Today I treated myself to a delicious bowl of ice cream and I also decided to wear my new beautiful butterfly t shirt. 
    I'm a fruit loop. 🍊➰

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    This doesn't really sound like self care but hear me out... I got myself a ready meal tonight. I cook most nights and just needed a break from doing it this evening so thought I'd look after myself in this way so I'd have more time to chill tonight!
    Treat yourself as you would treat a good friend

    Today I took all my meds on time, basic bit of self care but important, for various reasons I often skip some of them.

    also going to do some of my creative work book tonight (how to be happy (or at least less sad)) :)

    my self care today is I forgave someone who hurt me, not so much so we could be friends again, but so I could accept what happened and move on :)

    spending the evening doing some of my wreck this journal :)

    Today I spoke up about what was wrong instead of "nothing." I even got a hug from a year 11 because I was so close to crying and using Crisis Messenger earlier.

    Not working today so woke up and got dressed anyway 😁 (normally if I have nothing planned I stay in my Jammie's) also might be going to the gym later 👌 I used to love going and finally got the go ahead from my Dr to get back into it .. if not then my friend posted up a positive affirmations & narwhals colouring book so will be doing that 😊

    (not sure these count as self care, but...)

    Monday- I had an early night after work, 
    Tuesday- I had a really productive physio session
    Wednesday- I didn't sleep well last night but was still at the gym for 8am. 
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
    '' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    Yesterday I decided to not go to placment as I needed the day to recover after the past few days and I slept and walked my dog in the sun ❤️
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Hey everyone,

    Well done for taking time to look after yourselves last week. It's so important to take this time and focus on you! I really enjoyed reading what you did to take care of yourself <3

    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't.
