Mindfully Safe Challenge
Five-Step Choose Yourself Challenge by The Indigo Project
Welcome to your new challenge.
Here are a few hints and tips for getting the best out of the challenge...
1. Carve out daily me-time
You’ve made a conscious choice to take on the challenge, which means that you’re aware that you may not be prioritising yourself. Awareness is a great tool. It helps us become clearer about our needs and what you probably need right now is to give yourself some daily you-time. We recommend 20 minutes each morning to help you settle into the day and complete your challenge. Maybe it’s a walk or a run, maybe it’s a creative activity or 20 minutes with your favourite tunes, maybe it’s a meditation - how you fill the time is up to you.
If you haven’t practised the habit of journaling in a while (or ever), now’s a good time to start. Journalling gives us the opportunity to quiet the voices in our head. By writing our thoughts down, no matter how silly, angry, sad or happy they are, we’re able to gain more clarity around what’s actually going on and if the stories we tell ourselves are actually helpful.
3. Have fun and be honest with yourself
This is your personal journey and challenge. No one needs to know about it if you don’t want them to. Be as honest and real with yourself as you’re comfortable with. Use this as a tool for reflection, not self-judgement and have fun along the way. We’re with you!
