We are so excited to introduce our upcoming 30 Day Self-Care Virtual Challenge! Throughout the month of June, we are encouraging our guests to take part in acts of self-care! Here’s how you can participate:
*Follow @wesparksupport on Instagram!
*Post a photo on Instagram each time you practice self-care during the month of June
*Add a caption below the post describing your practice of self-care
*Tag us in the photo
*Use the hashtag #wespark30daysofselfcare
Your profile must be public in order to participate. Guests who post 25 times or more in June will win a limited edition weSPARK t-shirt. There are many ways to practice self-care. While it may not always be easy to find time during the day to practice self-care, try doing some of the suggestions below!
*Take a long evening walk.
*Listen to your favorite album with the lights low and a candle burning.

*Go to your favorite coffee shop and order a special drink in a mug.
