What Are The ‘Rules’?

Hello Love and welcome back to my space! Today is Day 1 of The Artist’s Way Challenge and I am so pumped! There is something about publicly sharing that I’m committed to something that makes me want to see it through! Although, I had already planned to restart this challenge, seeing Yvonne post just lit me right up!

The contract that I shared on my accountability post talks about excellent self care which includes: adequate sleep, diet, exercise and pampering for the duration of the course. When I think of excellent self care, I think of:

-focusing on meals that are nourishing, WFPB, at least 90 percent of the time

-getting at least 7 hours of sleep per night

-leaving my phone downstairs, so no late night scrolling, which will also help with…

-nightly reading, at least 10 pages, no rules about the content

-staying hydrated, drinking at least 60 ounces of water per day

-no eating in bed (last night was night 7 of no eating in bed and I already feel so much better)

-daily movement sessions, Sundays movement will be slow, easy and outside

-daily meditation

In addition to the weekly reading, daily Morning Pages, a weekly, Artist’s Date and the fulfillment of each weeks tasks, I will:

-share a daily blog post. It doesn’t need to be about the challenge. It is important that I use this space to share the things that I am excited about, light me up and bring me joy. Whether it be a full recipe, Friday favorites, quick smoothie recipes or words of encouragement, I want to pour them into my space.

-share weekly blog post about the Artist Date + weekly reflections/findings

It is so important that I use this space moving forward. I have been thinking about how much time and energy I pour into spaces that are not my own and I don’t want to do that anymore! I also feel like my energy and what I have to give to the world is bigger than the confines of social media spaces.

If you have any requests for topics to cover or recipe ideas, I’d love to hear them! That’s all for now, I’m so excited about this challenge. I know that it will get me out of my comfort zone, I’m already feeling it, and that’s all I can hope for! If you’d like to join me, let’s go!!!
