Happy New Year! Welcome to January 2018 and it’s going to be a great year filled with self-care and ideas on embracing “the cozy”. The easiest thing to make right now is a Self-Care Jar.
Something I don’t think we do enough of is celebrate our small victories. Most big events don’t happen out of the blue, they are usually the result of several smaller steps and victories. We just don’t acknowledge them until it’s huge.
I challenge you to celebrate every victory in 2018, big and small by creating a Self-Care Jar. All you need is a designated jar, a pen, and paper.
Every time something good comes your way, write it down on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. I include:
Things I accomplished
Nice things that happened to me
Cozy things I did for myself
I then have the fun of opening up the slips of paper on New Year’s Day and relive all my favorite moments. It gives me hope to have another year filled with great moments. And btw, the hike my son and I took today in 12 degree fahrenheit weather, shown in the video, definitely deserves a place in my jar and it may inspire me again next year!
(And you may notice I called it a Celebration Jar in my video, but I actually prefer Self-Care Jar!)
