21 Day Self Care Challenge - Day 2
Happy Saturday #TeamTahiry,
Well I hope you read out your affirmation out loud that’s on the first mirror you encounter this morning. If you didn’t, take the time right now, no matter where you are to repeat after me: ‘I AM ENOUGH’, ‘I AM ENOUGH’, ‘I AM ENOUGH’.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about something that might sound simple and irrelevant, but can be a game changer… Organizing. Yes, simple organizing can be a form of self-care. It can also help you eliminate unneeded and unwanted stress out of your life. When things are physically a mess in your life, it can often be a reflection of what is going on in your current life, and no one can function in mess. Also, sometimes doing things in the physical can help us make major changes and make major progress in other aspects of our lives. So today, I challenge you to take this Saturday to get organized. Yeah, I know you probably want to go get breakfast with friends, or lounge around the house. And you can still do those things, but carve out time to get you where you want to be first!
So today’s challenge:
Think about something that is a complete wreck right now. It can be your room, or one of your kitchen or bedroom drawers, your closet, your car. Spend as much time as it requires to get that one thing organized. Now let’s say all of the above are a complete mess. Well, only select ONE thing, that you want to get organized and clean out today. View this project as a symbolic way of you cleaning out your life. So if it’s your closet that you’re cleaning, throw things out and as you’re doing it, think about all of the things in your life that you need to throw out. Old clothes that you know you will never fit or realistically wear again, get rid of them, pull them out of the closet, or pull that old raggedy silverware in the kitchen drawer out and toss it. While you’re dong it, thinks of old and raggedy habits that you need to get rid of and how much progress you’ll make by ridding yourself of these things. Once you’ve completed the project, go to a quiet place and sit and reflect on the things in your life that are no longer serving you, or helping you make progress, and visualize those things being thrown out of your life. Now go back and look at the project that you worked on once it’s completed. When you see how clean and organized it is, harness those feelings internally and think about the satisfaction it’s bringing you. Then imagine how satisfying your life would be if you threw out the things you no longer need that don’t serve you. Maybe it’s smoking, maybe its drinking too much, maybe its a raggedy boyfriend, maybe its negative thoughts.
If you have a journal, I suggest you journal your feelings and thoughts after you’ve completed todays challenge…. Thank me later.
