You guys! I’m so excited to announce that I’m kicking off my FIRST EVER(!) daily challenge!
What’s it all about, you say? Self care! And it couldn’t come at a better time — the lead up to Christmas.
“A challenge before Christmas? Another thing to add to our to-do list?”
This is a different kind of challenge, I promise.
The holidays are an extremely overwhelming time for Moms. There are Christmas concerts and recitals, parties, gift exchanges, and many — MANY — trips to the mall. Many of us feel overwhelmed, exhausted and frustrated. The ‘to-do’ lists grow longer and longer. We’re up late hours into the night wrapping presents and cleaning the house. We’re skipping meals, sacrificing our sleep, and self care is the LAST thing on our minds.
That’s why I’ve created the 12 Days of Self Care Challenge. I’m challenging you to take some time for you, Mama, every single dang day up until Christmas day. It’s SO important to take that time to breathe and refresh. This will allow us take a more ‘mindful’ approach to the holiday and focus on the little moments as opposed to what’s outstanding on our ‘to-do’ lists.
Each day for the next 12 days, you’ll receive an e-mail from me outlining the day’s self care ‘task’. I’m asking you to take 10-15 minutes of your day to focus on yourself. I’ll be doing it right along with you. And, I’d invite you to post on Instagram using the hashtag #LM12DaysofSelfCare so we can all support one another.
Remember — take a deep breath, and focus on the moments. Our kids are only little once, and if we can take some time for ourselves, we will be better able to handle whatever life throws our way this holiday season.
