Today makes the first day of my 30 day challenge. In case you’re wondering, I am challenging myself to 30 days of accountability in taking charge of my mental health. This includes things like basic self care: showering, brushing teeth, getting dressed, cleaning up my surroundings, etc. My goal is to do at least 3 of those things every day. The idea is that if I push myself to do things I don’t want to do, I will feel better after I complete the tasks. I know the tasks seem easy, but if you have ever been depressed, you understand how lethargic you can feel. When I’m at my worst, anything above getting out of bed seems like a major feat.
Today was good. I woke up, had a good breakfast (waffles!) and went to work. Later on I had a nice lunch and dinner. I also showered, brushed and flossed my teeth, used mouthwash, washed my hair, and put on lotion. I also did the dishes that had been piling up in the sink. Also, my husband and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary today, so I made him a funny card and got him a little present ❤ We aren’t doing anything special today since we both worked, but this weekend we are going to try to do something fun.
Tomorrow maybe I can accomplish even more. The laundry is starting to pile up. Hopefully I can get to that and even put it away. (That’s always the hard part!)
Until next time…cheers 😉
