New Moon Phase of Prioritizing Self-Care

Your Quiz Results

You are in your new moon phase of self-care potential.

Think of yourself as a seedling that’s just been planted. You are at the beginning of your journey in prioritizing self-care and discovering its importance in your life.

While you may not have developed strong habits yet, you have recognized the need for self-care and are open to exploring ways to incorporate it into your routine. It’s important to remember that self-care is a journey, and it takes time to develop a consistent practice.

By taking this quiz, you have already taken the first step towards prioritizing your well-being. Keep exploring and trying different self-care activities to find what resonates with you.

The new moon is the time to set goals and intentions that you will work towards as the moon waxes towards fullness. You are never stuck in one phase, but moving gracefully towards the next.

Remember, even small steps can make a big difference in nurturing yourself. Keep going, and you will continue to grow in your self-care journey!

Your New Moon Action Plan

1️⃣ SET YOUR INTENTIONS

Next time there is a new moon, on a loose piece of paper write down the goals, intentions, and seeds you hope to plant for the upcoming cycle pertaining to your self-care. Bury the piece of paper in some dirt, whether that’s in your backyard or in a pot of dirt in your apartment. When the full moon comes around, reflect on the progress you’ve made on those goals.

Bonus points if you can get some seed paper that will grow into wildflowers that you can write on!

 

2️⃣ TAKE SMALL STEPS

Start with small steps. Begin by incorporating small self-care activities into your daily routine. This could be taking a few minutes to practice deep breathing, going for short walks, or indulging in a relaxing bath. Check out these articles on Maidenspoke for ideas on where to start on your self-care journey: 

 

3️⃣ SCHEDULE IT

Schedule your self-care time. Set aside dedicated time in your calendar for self-care activities. Treat this time as non-negotiable and commit to it just as you would any other important appointment. Start with a day/time frame that feels manageable and go from there. Keeping a log of your progress is a great way to see the ebbs and flows as you make self-care a priority. Jot down notes of what you did for self-care, and how you feel before and after.

 

4️⃣ FIND ACCOUNTABILITY BUDDIES

Reach out to friends, family, or support groups who can help hold you accountable and provide encouragement in your self-care journey. Join our Maidenfolk membership for a like-minded community of others on the self-care path.

 

5️⃣ PRACTICE SELF-COMPASSION

Be kind to yourself and let go of any guilt or perfectionism when it comes to self-care. Remember that taking care of yourself is essential and not selfish. Read more here for 5 Ways to Practice Self-Compassion.

Remember, these actionable self-care plans can be adapted and personalized based on individual preferences and needs. The goal is to empower individuals to prioritize their self-care and find a balance that supports their overall well-being.

Each moon phase has its own beauty and potential. No phase is better than the other, and it is always cyclical. Just like self-care. Self-care isn’t about getting it perfect. It’s about the cycle of commitment. If you fall off the wagon, you can always get back on and recommit. If you are doing great and in your full moon phase, celebrate your progress and help others get there too.
