January Art Challenge

I have all kinds of fun goals and healthy habits planned to bring into my New Year. Fitness, Self-Discovery, and Creativity are some of my top intentions for 2018. In 2018, I’ll be launching Do Five Things A Day’s Monthly Art Challenges.

5 Reasons to Participate in an Art Challenge:

3.) It promotes self expression and creativity.

4.) It provides learning opportunities.

5.) It’s fun!

How to Build a Balanced Self-Care Routine

Good Self-Care has many components to it. We must take care of our bodies but also take care of our heart, our soul, and our mind. It’s important to create routines that create a healthy balance for all areas of your self. I rounded up a list of ideas to take care of all areas so that you can create a well-rounded routine that works for you. I pick something off each list in addition to my weekly exercise routines each week to create a balanced self-care routine for myself.
