“In case no one told you today, you are needed, you are stronger than you think, you are doing great, you deserve the best, you are here for a reason, don’t give up.
-Mental Health Notes
Ah, it’s a new month.
With a fresh 30-day start, you set goals and aspirations for this month. A chance to start anew, they call it a new moon for a reason.
In case it’s been too hectic for you, I made you a day by day self-growth calendar.
And I’ll be doing it with you as well. Side by side.
Set your goals for this month.
Start a journal(or journal today, if you already have one). Read my post on ‘How To Journal: Beginner’s Guide’ if you need tips.
Drink more water than usual.
Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while.
Listen to a self-care podcast. (Ex. Courage & Spice, Terrible, Thanks For Asking, etc.)
Read a few chapters of a book. If you’re struggling, read my post on ‘How to start that book you’ve been neglecting.’
Cook your favorite/comfort meal.
Clean out your wardrobe.
Sign up for an online course(there are a bunch of good free ones out there)
Do an exercise video for your level. (an hour is 4% of your day, no excuses!)
Draw your favorite character(from a movie, book, etc.)
Make your bed. And congratulate yourself. You did a lot today,
Go for a drive or a walk(wear a mask :)to clear your mind.
Lay down and listen to some music. Unwind.
You’re halfway through this month, and I’m so proud of you! Check up on those goals again. 😀
Take an extra-long hot shower or a bubble bath.
Read again, and don’t set a timer. Let yourself go.
Go to sleep early today. And off all screens 30 minutes before you go to bed.
Light a candle and listen to some music. You deserve some me-time.
Do another workout video. (no excuses!)
Try developing a skin-care routine.
Make homemade hair and face mask(SO many online).
Don’t forget to keep on journaling. Write at least 3 things you’re proud of doing this month. (The little things always count).
Make another favorite meal again. (Dessert’s count!)
Listen to a new podcast. (It could end up being your favorite)
Attempt something you’ve always wanted to do.
Declutter a room, closet, or drawer.
Change your sheets, and brighten up your living space.
Do a photoshoot.（＾∀＾）
Look at you, sticking with something for a whole month. Give yourself a hug(do it.) and a pat on the back. Order some food, kick back, and relax.
You deserve it. You always have.
yay! I hope you stuck with me throughout this month. Even if you forgot a day or two, it’s alright. Because you’re doing it for yourself.
I would love to know how you feel after completing this, so let me know in the comments. And before you go, here’s a quote by Jason Garner.
“You deserve to rest. Even if only for a moment. Put down the weight you’re carrying. Let go of the need to keep it all together. Take off your warrior mask. For this moment, now … just breathe.”
Take care. (⌒∇⌒)
