Balancing the tasks of everyday life – work, parenting, caregiving – is hard. We are coming out of a long period of difficulty and uncertainty, it has been stressful and, for many, the effects are still ongoing. The idea of taking even a few minutes to practice healthy coping techniques can feel like just another chore.
But looking after yourself is especially important when you’re struggling. Self-care is about self-preservation. It’s a necessity, not an indulgence.
A self-care task should not be big or difficult - it needs simplicity. That is what this challenge is all about. Simple 15 minute ideas to help you feel better.
This is open to any Devon resident or families who have a child registered at a Devon school.
You can enter individually, or as a family. Each entry must answer the question and send an individual email. Multiple entries per household allowed - age 13+ (e.g. if all members of the household take part, anyone over 13 can send in an entry for the gift card draw)
Participants will be entered to win a $150 gift card of your choice (subject to certain restrictions).
Eligible entries will be randomly drawn no later than October 22.
As a result of participating in this challenge, I / we/ my family found it easy to spend at least 15 minutes a day focusing on mental wellbeing and will continue this practice:
