Day 3: Drawing it Out
Day 4: Get Outside
Day 6: Painting
Day 7: Yoga

We will learn about creating beautiful backgrounds, handmade foam stamps, layering text, and focusing on a theme.
Win a Portable Art Kit – This kit was personally assembled by me to help you be your most creative, expressive self, wherever you are. I will ship it to you whether you live in New Hampshire or New Zealand! (Prize value: $50)
How how exactly do I participate and possibly win, you ask? Read on, my friend.
What Is The 7-Day Self-Care Challenge?
Details, details… I want to help you take better care of yourself, and have fun doing it. The challenge is to spend a minimum of 5 minutes each day doing some self-care activity. I will provide you with a different prompt every day, some art-based, some not. You can either follow my prompts or do your own self-care thing. You might be into meditation, cooking, dancing, listening to music, photography, walking on the beach, connecting with an old friend, or any other nurturing activity – just do it! Be sure to comment on each day’s blog post so that you get your chance to win one of the prizes. Let’s have some fun!
How Do I Enter?
For each of the 7 days you do five minutes of self-care and comment about it on that day’s post by 11:59 PM EST, you get one chance to win. This means that if you participate and comment every day, you are entered in the drawing 7 times.
See the links below for the current day’s challenge!
Who Can Enter?
You must be14 or older to enter. You can live anywhere in the world, be male or female, and be any shape, size, gender, color, religion, etc.
Good luck! Remember, the challenge starts tomorrow, so get ready to have some fun and comment about it. See you then! If you like this, please share it with your friends and remember to use hashtag: #selfcarechallenge
Go to today’s challenge: YOGA!
Does knowing that you have “permission” to take care of yourself help you commit to self-care? Does the idea of “self-care” make you feel like you are being self-indulgent or selfish? Would you be willing to use this week as an experiment and see if that’s true or not? Tell us about that and more in the comments.
