We are constantly on technology, try to take a step back and order a book thats going to help you in some way search for a self care book, search for a finance book, search for a book to learn more about your passions or just order a fiction book to take a step out of reality for a few minutes. I have a list of good books here

Movement is so important, I can’t even express the difference in my mindset when I am working out and when I am slacking. Find some type of movement that you LOVE you don’t have to be in the gym 5+ times a week, you can walk everyday, you can add yoga or pilates into the mix, just find one thing that you love and keep doing it!

I’m starting this challenge, because I’ve noticed that I haven’t been focused on my self care as much as I was because of how busy Ive been and that doesn’t sit well with me.
