An update on my 100 Day Project

2 min read

As I loved my experience with the 100 Day Project so much last year I really wanted to join in again this year. Doing something as big as blogging daily is a bit beyond my capacity these days as we only just added a new family member. So, I decided to just do something fun or restful every day for the next 100 days.

100 days of self-care

A few days into the project it became clear that doing this wasn’t actually challenging. Not because taking time to do something for yourself is necessarily easy. Especially for women and mothers this can be very difficult. There are many felt and real expectations on us plus many Mamas are very busy and have very little time.

However, I realised that I am already quite good at resting and doing things just for fun. Most evenings I knit or read, I regularly hang out with friends, every now and then I try new recipes, I listen to music and podcasts, I prioritise my health and ask for help when I need it.

A challenge that isn’t challenging is boring

So, it turned out that my 100 day project idea was a bit pointless. For me, the idea of doing this process is adding or trying something new and to challenge myself.

Long story short, I decided to continue taking care of myself but just because that is what I always do and not because of this project.

In a way, it was a good realisation that at 33 years old I have learned how to take care of myself and prioritise my own needs.

What’s next?

For now, I decided to ruminate on some alternative ideas for another 100 days project and possibly start one in the summer or fall.

Is taking care of yourself easy for you or hard? Is this a topic you would like to read more about here?

I hope you have a great day with time to rest many moments of joy!
