The 6-Week Self Care Challenge That Changed My Life
Now that the flurry of January has mellowed a bit, you might be feeling the desire to really hone in on your goals for 2021. What do you want more of this year? How can you show up as your most genuine self? If you’re frustrated with your resolutions and on the hunt for actual solutions, we can help.
To help you visualize, track, and commit to your goals, we’re brining back our six-week guide to get you to your happiest and healthiest self. This course is about getting to know yourself and what “self-care” truly looks like to you, so you can keep up your health and happiness long after the 42 days are over. We reached out to experts in a variety of fields, from nutrition to psychology to skincare, for their advice and input on a few of the different areas that make up a life well-lived. The result is over 100 pages of guidance, worksheets, and challenges designed to help you redefine and rediscover self-care in your life.
What does the course cover?
The workbook, which is over 100 pages, is broken down into six sections based on a different theme. Each section includes notes and insight from our panel of experts as well as guided worksheets and daily challenges to complete over the course of the full six weeks of the challenge. The weeks are structured as follows:
At the end of the course, there’s a space for rest and reflection—to help you determine what strategies worked for you throughout the course and what habits you can implement into your life moving forward.
What’s included in the course?
Each week of the course centers around a theme—mental health, nutrition, relationships, etc.—and includes daily activities and challenges relating back to that theme. For example, week one is all about your mental health. On Monday, you’ll assess what self-care means to you. On Tuesday, you’ll take our guided quiz to determine your personal mantra. On Wednesday, you’re challenged to spend 30 minutes in nature. And so on for the rest of the week. Each day is accompanied by guided notes, worksheets, and advice from our panel of experts.
Also included in the course is an invitation to our course specific Facebook group, where Everygirl editors will be popping in as we complete the challenges in office. You’ll also have a chance to connect with other course attendees and form a self-care community.
