We at BeReal Wear want to help you get started on your Selfcare Checklist for 2022. We are going to start on the thought process before doing the checklists. Feel free to alter it to your needs, as we know not everyone is the same!
Can I do it?
● This is the biggest question most people face when they start something new, whether it be a new hobby or goal or even this checklist. So, I am here to convince you that you can do it!
● Start it off simple, you are probably doing all of the basic Selfcare Checklist already (go you!).
● Why don’t you add one of the intermediate goals now to your basic checklist? And slowly keep adding when you feel like you can take on another goal for your checklist.
● Don’t worry if one day you can’t do them all and can only do the basics, you tried your best and tomorrow is a new day to start again!
● No one expects you to be able to do them all from the get-go. We all have different schedules and responsibilities, so, find your balance.
● For the weekly and monthly checklist, pick one to start with then slowly up add one or two more. You don’t have to do the same point every week/month, pick and choose with how you feel and if you only do the same one each week/month, then that’s okay! But don’t forget to step out of your comfort zone once in a while!
● If you are worried about it being too much financially, don’t worry! We aren’t asking you to do only paid things. There are lots of fun free/cheaper alternatives to do when treating yourself.
● If you are still worried about starting your Selfcare Checklist, that’s okay! Hopefully, you will still look through the checklists and take on one or two of them, it doesn’t have to be all!
● When in doubt talk to a friend for help!
