A Fun and Easy Way to Supercharge your Self-care, Feel Fabulous about Yourself - and even Make New Friends!
We're Mia and Karen, soul sisters, biological sisters, and the founders of Soulwoman.
And we LOVE a good challenge.
In our own lives, we've always found this to be the fastest and easiest way to change our habits, motivate ourselves, and get better results.
And that's why we created the 7-Days to Luminous Challenge...
It's the perfect way to get started or to get back on the self-care wagon - especially if you're exhausted and overwhelmed, or your life feels pretty chaotic.
And if you can make it through 7 days, then everything after that is easier. You'll have more energy, which means you can take better care of everyone else if that's your jam... but you'll do it without resentment or feeling like you're drowning in a too-long list of to-do's.
Best thing? You can join us from ANYWHERE in the world, and participate in the comfort of your own home!
You'll get a full week of our BEST self-care activities - even for those days that you have no energy, no time, no money, or no motivation.
The challenge is designed to help you release the overwhelm, chaos and too-busyness of modern life. It's all set up so that you don't have to worry at all.
We're here to support you. But even better, we also have a strong, active community of people to cheer you on and offer tips.
In your self-care portal, you'll find easy-to-do activities all worked out for you and organised according to how much time you have available - so you don't have to think about it.
You will receive daily emails to motivate and inspire you to keep going and develop a rock-solid self-care mindset for lasting feelings of calm.
Make friends with others who can hold space for you and cheer you on. This is also a place to get your questions answered and get the encouragement you need.
Self-Care ideas for the time-poor. Pick the amount of time you have available - 20 minutes, 10 minutes or 5 minutes - and do ONE of these delicious self-care practices today.
Self-care need not require a voluminous budget! It's easy to let the excuse of not having enough money hold you back from taking better care of ourselves.
If you really want to nourish your body, mind and soul, there are countless ways of doing this that won't cost a cent, and we gathered them all for you here.
Incorporating self-care can seem harder if you're dead-tired, and lacking in energy. When you're feeling depleted, that's exactly the time to do something special to boost your energy reserves.
It seems easier to do nice things for other people—and sometimes those needs appear to be never-ending. There's always someone who wants a small (or large) piece of your time, your energy or your heart.
Whatever your situation, there are times when focusing on yourself feels difficult, or out of place. Times when you feel guilty about spending time away from others who are depending on you. We'll show you why and how taking time to replenish is vital for your own wellbeing.
How do you practice self-care when you're struggling to feel worthy of it? Sometimes it feels more intuitive to practice self 'harm'—perhaps through physical hurt or through continuing to feed addictive behaviours or by engaging in persistent negative self-talk. We'll show you how to engage in small acts of self-kindness and compassion.
So what about self-care when you just don't feel motivated to do it? No problem... we'll show you how to love on yourself by doing whatever lights you up.
What can you do if you think self-care is an important thing, if you love doing it, and support the idea 'in theory'—but despite these good intentions, you're always putting it off?
Today we're coming to the rescue! And when you're done with this challenge, you'll have a brand new self-care blueprint to take into the future with you.
"The best thing about this challenge was that it made me realize that even though most of the day is taken up caring for my husband, it is still possible to make time for myself."
"I loved having permission to focus on me. I realized there are little things I can do each day to raise my spirits, soothe my soul and enjoy life. Best example from this week - blowing bubbles!!!"
"I realized how easy it is to just take a few minutes for myself any time of the day and that I am important enough to do it. No matter what is going on in my life I must take care of me because I'm the hub that holds all the spokes of the "wheel" that is my life, friends, family, home, job, etc. Without the hub the spokes don't function as spokes. They are just random pieces. With the hub, it creates a functional, usable machine. I hold it all together and make it work. I'm not only a necessary part, I'm important enough to be well taken care of!"
"This challenge was very practical. Nothing was overly expensive or time consuming. One of the best parts for me came from the quiz. Allocating 15 minutes a day to worry and letting it go the rest of the time has had a huge impact on my stress level."
"The best thing about this process for me was the emails that I still have. I already know I am the type of person who needs reminders, either external or from me (post it notes, alerts in my phone). I can refer back to the 7 day emails when I start to forget to take care of me. The one day I felt so charged after just listening to calming music on the ride home from work that I have just made that a thing now."
"The best thing for me is having such a wonderful group of sisters to share my attempts with self care with. We encourage one another to make self care a priority although at first the concept seems foreign. Together we acknowledge that this is a process not a goal and this is only the beginning of a habit. So grateful to you lovelies for creating this space!"
"Making time is different to taking time. I'm worth it - we all are!"

Here's what the challenge includes:
The next challenge starts next Friday.
First of all, we understand. Most women love the practices we recommend, but of course people have different preferences.
That's why we make sure that there is a wide variety of practices that you can choose from, depending on how much time you have.
We ALWAYS refund anyone who asks within 7 days after purchase. So you've got nothing to worry about.
But let's be honest. If it's not worth $7 to you to jump-start your self-care practice as quickly as possible, then this probably isn't the right challenge for you. (We'll still refund your money, though.)
