So here at The Spoonie Mummy, November is going to be all about self love. Finding some time for you, learning to appreciate what you do and who you are, looking after your needs and building some self confidence.
My mental health hasn’t been great recently and I have noticed that I often put others needs before my own. I don’t necessarily think this is a bad trait, but when it comes at the detriment to your own health and feelings, then it becomes an issue. I have had lots of messages recently from people struggling too – mum’s who have lost their identity aside from being a Mum, people struggling with confidence and self doubt, people who aren’t taking care of themselves as they are too busy taking care of others and people struggling with chronic illness.
I have set 30 daily challenges, one for each day of November and I would love for you all to join me in the #SMSelfLoveClub. Each week I will post a blog post with the week’s challenges on. I would love to see your results too – you can comment at the bottom of the blog posts, tweet, share your photos on Instagram or post on The Spoonie Mummy Facebook page and remember to use the hashtag – #SMSelfLoveClub.
And so for week one’s challenges! Good luck to you all and I hope this helps you learn a bit more about yourself and give you the boost you need to take care of YOU!
WEDNESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER – What is your biggest struggle with loving yourself?
THURSDAY 2ND NOVEMBER – What good habit are you going to begin this month?

I hope you enjoy the challenges and find the strength to work through all of them, even the difficult ones. Remember to send in your feedback with the hashtag so I can see how you are getting on, it will be great to see people joining me for this and I really hope it helps!
