SUPER JUICY 2.0!
A 30 Day Self-Care Challenge
April 1 - 30, 2022
Back for its second year, this 30 Day Self-Care Challenge continues to evolve and will offer something fresh for returning friends and a
warm welcome to those of you arriving
here for the first time.
You have a choice between two levels of engagement:
JUICY 2.0! and SUPER JUICY 2.0!
SUPER JUICY 2.0! includes additional opportunities for live connection, learning and practice together.
This year you can either design your own self-care commitment(s) or
else join me (Christina) in doing a new one each day!
The idea behind a new commitment each day is to keep them fresh, fun, do-able and playful -
and also to have them as a source of support and encouragement.
If any of the daily commitments don't work for you, you could simply
do one from a previous day or choose your own.
Scroll down for full details.
WHAT IS SELF-CARE?
Self-Care encompasses attitudes, beliefs and actions that support your health and wellbeing. It includes all aspects of your life: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, sexual, relational and financial.
It is an act of personal power and supports you to be your fullest, most alive, most vital self. It is based on the premise that your health and wellbeing are foundational to creating the life you most desire, to accomplishing your goals and manifesting your dreams.
Self-care is about living a life that is JUICY!
BENEFITS OF SELF-CARE
Self-care will support and improve your overall health and wellbeing.
1. It can help you to develop commitment and discipline, better enabling you to show up for yourself and your life.

3. It better enables you to better meet your needs: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, sexual, relational, financial.
4. It helps you to make yourself a priority in your life. Self-care is not selfish - instead it helps you to keep your cup full and to be more present and resourced for yourself, the people and things that matter most to you.
5. It can help you to learn and practice healthy boundaries.
6. It can help you to develop better self-esteem - to feel better about yourself as you practice self-care every day over time.
7. It can help to build self-worth - you are worth the time, effort and benefits that self-care provides.
8. It enables you to better manage your stress and respond, rather than react in your life.
9. It can help you to better regulate your nervous system and your emotions.
10. It can help you to build resilience and better ride the waves of life.
11. It can help you to build healthier relationships.
12. It enables you to resource, replenish and nourish for your wellbeing.
HOW IT WILL WORK
(applies to both JUICY & SUPER JUICY)
1. Choose Your Commitment
Commit to your self-care with a minimum of one commitment every day for 30 days
If choosing your own, how complex or involved your commitment will be is up to you. And, it is a good idea to start with something small and build it over time. This can give you a better chance of success and feeling good about yourself and your level of participation. Maybe start with one minute of something and go from there.
2. Complete your Commitment Each Day!
and enjoy the benefits of prioritizing yourself
and your health & wellbeing
3. Chart your victories! (AKA Accountability)
See your progress as you create new habits and let go of old, unhealthy ones. Feel amazing as the fruits of your steady efforts and commitment grow!
Each day you will receive an accountability notification asking you to report your progress for the day.
4. Group Sharing:
Share with new friends about your experiences, inspirations, and self-care ideas. Build new connections, friendships and be part of this amazing community of heart-centred humans and beautiful souls.
