I started my day today with Daily Jay section of my calm app. It’s possibly one of the simplest guided meditations available out there. After I was done, I suddenly had a rush of creative ideas in my head including my 31 day long mental health blog series. Since I already posted “31 ways of showing love to yourself this month“, I can just build on it 💃🏽
So, today we are doing 30 Simple Ways to Boost Your Mental Health and Well-Being and then tomorrow we will do something with 29 and so on.
I know that when you see a list, not every idea or tip or whatever it is resonates with you and that’s why when there are more options, you can choose the things that do speak to you.
Now that you know where did this inspiration come from let’s dive in 🌊 🏊🏻♀️
