Some of you may or may not know but I have a YouTube called you guessed it Chooselifewarrior, earlier this year in June 2016 I uploaded 21 videos for the first 21 days of June which was a Self Love Bootcamp!
I created the self love bootcamp as a response to the overwhelming questions I get on the regular like ‘How do I love myself?’, ‘How are you so confident?’, ‘How do I love my body as much as you do?’. This 21 day bootcamp of various videos are all intertwined within the realm of self care, self love and body positivity. It was made to watch at any pace, binge watch them all, commit yourself to one video a day for 21 days or spread them out over the year.
I thought I would give a quick run down of each video, so you can see what it is all about. Finding yourself connecting with some videos more than others, that is totally normal – we all have our own struggles and experiences. Those will shape what interests you or what you think you might want to explore more. If you want to watch one video in particular skip ahead, it is no problem.
I created a hashtag to go with this challenge so if you do complete any or all of the videos or the challenges within some of them let me know! #CLWSelfLoveBootcamp
A low down of where my inspiration came from for this bootcamp, some history about me and of course the things you’ll need for this bootcamp. A pen and paper that is all – there is a affirmation mentioned in every video also written in the description.
