Self Care September

If you read yesterdays post, you'll know I've been struggling mentally lately. So for September, I'm making a point of looking after myself, and will be using my self care journal daily, as well as partaking in a self care challenge.


The Self Care Journal
Gail and I actually bought each other this exact journal for Christmas last year (we know each other so well) but neither of us have actually use it yet. So this month, I'm finally going to be putting pen to paper.








There's absolutely tons of other pages but I might do another full post about this journal in the future!

I'll be filling in the calendar with my self care challenge, which you can read about next!

The Self Care Challenge

  2. Make some short term goals - for today, this week or this month and note them in your journal
