'Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going'.
I came across this quote a little while ago and I deeply resonated with it.
I'm sure I am not alone when I say that I have had many times when I have started a new practice extremely motivated and with great intentions, only for it to fizzle out in a matter of weeks or days.
I have been playing with many different self care routine practices and habit building techniques for a while now. And I was recently inspired to create a guide for you on how to create your own powerful self care practice.
Regular self care is a part of my daily life and I know that as soon as I let those simple and powerful rituals slip I begin to feel far from my best self.
My nervous system begins to feel overwhelmed and my intuition isn't as easy to sense.
I notice it's easier to slip into my ego,
I feel tired, grumpy, unmotivated, overwhelmed, less resilient and the list goes on.
Especially over the past 18+ months since the Covid-19 pandemic began. I have noticed an enormous shift within myself when I am practicing nourishing self care and supporting all four of my arenas (mental, emotional, physical and energetic).
I feel calm and grounded.
I feel connected to my intuition, more easily able to sense it, trust it and take action upon it.
I act from love, feel energized, peaceful, motivated, empowered, resilient and I feel like my best version of me.
My personal goal for practicing daily self care is to be the most intuitively, soul-aligned, version of myself for me, my family, my friends, and the world around me.
I believe self care is one of the most important things we can offer ourselves, if not the most important, especially in our world right now.
So I created 'The 30 day self care challenge' to support you to create consistent daily rituals that will change your life, one practice at a time.
The 30 day self care challenge came to me as an inspired visual download after going on one of my solo night walks after the kids went to bed during one of our lockdowns.
I was walking along in the dark under the street lights processing my day and shifting the stagnant energy in my body when bam!
This exciting intuitively guided idea of a challenge ebook filled with all of the tools I have gathered and practiced over the years dropped on in.
Who am I to not act on my intuition?
So I created 'The 30 day self care challenge' for you!
You can click HERE to download it and get started today!
I personally use this practice that I share with you in the ebook to create days that feel amazing and to flow with all life offers (or throws!) at me.
When I created this ebook I was in lockdown with 3 kids while my hubby was working every day. I learned from past lockdowns that were exhausting and overwhelming, I tweaked my self care schedule and despite being in lockdown I ended up having the most fun, productive, peaceful, present and energized week.
And I want you to be able to experience this too! Whether you are in lockdown, something big or small is changing in your life or you're riding the highs and lows of life. I want you to have the tools to create a practice that offers you support through it all.
I really hope you enjoy this gift:)
