Try This 21-Day Mental Health Plan From Therapists For Mindfulness and Self-Reflection

Samantha Brodsky

Sometimes the biggest form of self-care is knowing the right questions to ask yourself. It's a complicated feat - and one you might not want to start on your own - but eight different therapists took the guesswork out for you.

Each day for 21 days, a therapist will pose a question you can contemplate, and you'll also be tasked with an actionable way to answer that question. This practice is supposed to help your mental health and, in doing so, perhaps your physical wellbeing. You'll find a chart of these inquiries below and, ahead, check out a full list of action items for each day of this three-week plan.

Though this is not equivalent to therapy by any means, these therapist-informed inquiries are meant to guide you toward everyday mindfulness. They are important questions that will hopefully promote more self-discovery about your hopes, intentions, and values as well as get you thinking about how you treat your body and mind. Take the challenge to invest in yourself and look within - you may be better for it in the end.
