The start of any minimalist journey is typically a purge of physical possessions. Afterwards, you are free to figure out the life you want to live without distractions of excess. However, many find that their minds are working overtime. From things we need to do to random thoughts that pop up in our minds, we hardly have any quiet time.
This is something I have struggled with personally, and I believe it is time to take control of this situation! If you are like me, you are tired of your mind continuously working, thinking, or taking up precious time. You just want it to rest!
Well I have a treat for us! I have partnered with Kiara at Blissfully Brunette to create a mental cleanse challenge. For this challenge we will have a weekly focus with daily challenges. The set up for this challenge will follow the same format as my 2017 Declutter Challenge, and each update will go live on Mondays. I want to encourage you to do two things: 1. follow me on Instagram to be reminded of each daily challenge, and 2. follow Kiara’s blog so that you can see how we are both doing with this challenge as well as sharing how you are doing with it! We are super excited to share this with you, so here is the challenge overview:
As you can see, we have a lot of fun things planned as well as some soul searching challenges. I encourage you to participate each and every day with us, so that you can receive the benefits of having a clear mind! I mean, what have you got to loose?
An over processing mind…?
The inability to go to sleep…?
I could keep on, but that is exactly what I am trying to stop! So join us in this mental cleanse challenge! I dare you!
Mental Cleanse Week One: Self-Care
For the first week of the mental cleansing challenge, we are focusing on Self-Care! Often times, we focus on the needs of others, work, or getting things done in our home. However, we neglect to take care of ourselves. For this first week we are changing the focus, and doing little things for us for a change!
Day 1: Set two goals you would like to achieve during this challenge
Day 2: Treat your face to a special pampering facial
Day 3: Go for a walk
Day 4: Journal for 15 minutes
Day 5: Go to bed 30 minutes earlier than normal
Day 6: Make a gratitude list of everything you are grateful for in your life [let us see who can write the longest list!]
Day 7: Take a long bubble bath
I am not sure about you, but these mental cleanse challenges sound amazing! Already, I can feel myself relax! Can you?! If you decide to join Kiara and myself in this challenge, please comment below to let me know! I would love to know that we are not alone in wanting mental clarity!
