100 Days of Self-Care Week 2: Create

Welcome to days 8 through 14 of  "S" off your Chest 100 Days of Self-care. This week we will focus on intellectual wellness with a priority on our creativity. When's the last time you created anything? Do you create for pleasure? As we grow older some of us lose our curiosity to learn and have fun. This week we will take some time to nurture our creativity. As we move through the week let go of the need for everything to be perfect. The voice that says whatever we are creating needs to look or sound a certain way instead, go with the flow. As we let go of judgment and critic, we can be in the moment as well as allow our creativity to bloom.

(If you are just getting started here the prompts for Week 1. Please note that you do not have to follow the prompts In the order that they are given. The prompts are a guide to help us with your self-care Journey during these 100 days.)

Day 8: Create Affirmation Cards

Take some time to make affirmation cards with the affirmations below. Pull out your crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paint. Get creative. Do not focus on perfection but how you want to feel when you look at the card. 


  • I take care of the world when I take care of myself
  • I am abundant in all things that bring me joy
  • I love myself. I believe in myself. I support myself.
  • I tap into the frequency of self-love and abundance.
  • I make time to nourish my mind, body & soul.
  • I am worthy of love & fill myself up with love first.
  • I am in love with taking care of myself.


Day 9: Dance

Put your favorite song on repeat or pull up your favorite playlist and move. Set your timer for 15 minutes or more and let go. As you move feel what shows up maybe a new move or choreography.

 

 

Day 10: Sing 

Sound healing is trending and we may feel it requires a singing bowl. But don't forget your first instrument your voice. If you don't believe in the healing power of the song think how you are moved by songs found in a spiritual setting. 

Sing "This little light of mine"  As you sing the song think about your internal light. What things light your fire. What things dim your light. When you sing the section that refers to what you will not dim your light replace the words with those things.


Lyrics


This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

Let it shine 

Let it shine

Let it shine 


Won't let ( insert things that dim your light)

I'm gonna let it shine

Won't let ( insert things that dim your light)

I'm gonna let it shine

Won't let ( insert things that dim your light)

I'm gonna let it shine


This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

Let it shine 

Let it shine

Let it shine 


If you have some favorite songs follow with those songs as well. 


Day 11: Create a Poem

Mysterious Places. For these poetry writing prompts, we’re going to ask you to stretch your imaginations beyond the world of logic and fact and imagine that you can inhabit “in-between” spaces. What would it feel like? What would you do? Or not do?


Imagine you are…


  • Between stars
  • Between particles
  • Between dreams
  • Between flames in a fireplace
  • Between light and shadow
  • Underground
  • Behind a mask
  • Between air and water
  • Just before waking
  • Just before sleeping
  • Between notes in a song
  • Between the couch cushions
  • Between breaths
  • Between tripping and catching yourself

Day 12: Doodle, draw, or paint.

Drawing and painting can allow you to move away from the monotony of the day. It can be freeing to the mind. Take some time out of the day to doodle, draw, or paint. 

Day 13: Take a photo walk

Photo walks are not focused on capturing a great picture. It allows us to move our bodies, engage with the world, clear our head and embrace the unexpected. Keep the following questions in mind: “What is beautiful or interesting that I haven’t noticed before?” 

Day 14: Imagine

Imagine what your life will be like in 5 years. Think about what you hope to accomplish, your dreams and goals. What would it feel like? Who is in your life? What does it taste and smell like? What a journal entry dated 5 years from today. Write as if it has already happened? Save this letter either by placing it in an envelope or scanning so that you open it up 5 years from now.
