What do you think, when you think of that word?
As a solopreneur, stress is just a natural part of our day-to-day. That's what makes this topic -- solopreneur sanity -- so very important. Because we all need a little help managing that stress and getting closer to more and more days filled with moments of solopreneur sanity.
Especially when the coming weeks often bring the highest stress in both your work and personal lives (which, we know, are pretty much one and the same).
So, starting on Tuesday, November 1st, we're going to be challenging you to seven days of #SolopreneurSanity prompts on Instagram: from sharing wise words to showing us how you move your body, and giving your brain a break to being picky about the food on your plate. As you take an inward look and experiment with new things, snap a pic and share with us during the challenge!
Here's what's included over the next seven days:
Tuesday, November 1st - Words of wisdom: Share your favorite sanity-focused quote, advice, or book -- something that changed your perspective or has stuck with you over time.
Wednesday, November 2nd - Get shit done: Show us your favorite procrastination-busting, get-shit-done strategy.
Thursday, November 3rd - Brain breaks: Choose the best way for you to unplug and enjoy some time digitally detoxing.
Friday, November 4th - Your body is a wonderland: Focus on your body by exercising, eating something that makes you feel great, or committing to adding some extra zzz’s to your schedule.
Saturday, November 5th - Let it go: Tell us one thing you’re going to stop doing or let go of in order to introduce more sanity into your days.
Sunday, November 6th - Pay it forward: Give in some way -- your time, money, services, or gratitude.
Monday, November 7th - Happy endings (+ beginnings): Set your priorities and schedule for tomorrow.
Here's how to participate:
1. Upload a photo to your Instagram account that corresponds to the day’s theme. So, on Tuesday, November 1st, post a photo of your favorite self-care quote, on Thursday, November 3rd, snap a pic of what you did during your time disconnected (oh, the irony -- we know), on Monday, November 7th, share a photo of how you're paying it forward, and so on! Miss a day? Jump right back in when you can!
2. Include the hashtag #SolopreneurSanity when you upload your photo for the day. It’s the only way we’ll be able to follow along -- and we’ll be re-gramming a few each day from the @OneWomanShop account! (Bonus points for fun captions!)
3. Remember, Instagram is a social network. Be sure to explore the #SolopreneurSanity hashtag and interact with others participating in the challenge. (You might even grow your following in the process!)
Let’s have fun interacting on Instagram while working to improve our #SolopreneurSanity (something we most likely all need).
As we enter the last weeks of the year (eeeks!), we want to band together to stress less and appreciate our #SolopreneurSanity more. Who's with us?
