Whether you’re new around here or have a random question. Below are some of the most commonly-asked.
Everything you need to know about our self-care classes.
If there’s a class you’re interested in, the best option is to navigate to the individual class page via the calendar and RSVP.
When you RSVP, it lets us (and others) know you plan to attend. We’ll send you an email reminder about an hour before class and it’ll also appear in your upcoming classes list for easy management.
All classes are hosted by ZOOM, but must be accessed via myselfcaresociety.com
Nope. You'll never be seen or heard by default.
In some classes, guides will ask for volunteers, in which case you can raise your hand if you're interested in coming on screen and sharing.
How you take SCS classes is completely up to you. You can participate in chat, volunteer to share, or just hang back in your pajamas and follow along. There's no right way to do SCS class.
None of our classes are recorded.
One of the founding principles of SCS is that we need to hold each other accountable for showing up, and we're better when we do this work together.
The one exception is the Sunday Self-Care Strategy Session (Monthly) to make sure all members have the opportunity to view. We provide access for a week following.
All classes can be accessed through the Self-Care Society website.
About 15 minutes before class, a “Join Now” button will appear on the individual class page which you can click to automatically join.
RSVPing is mostly a courtesy at this point — letting us know that you plan to attend to we can make sure we'll be able to accommodate all.
Yes, all classes are listed in Pacific Standard time.
It's the best we can do for now. We hope to offer localized timezones in the future.
Just bring a journal or your favorite note-taking app and you’ll be all set.
It’s also a good idea to ensure you’ve downloaded Zoom and are up to date on the latest version. Usually this happens automatically, but worth checking so you don’t miss anything.
On the rare occasion that it’s recommended to prepare something (usually with intensive workshops), you’ll have ample warning ahead of time.
RSVPing lets us (and others) know that you're planning to attend.
When you RSVP to a class, it will be added to your “Upcoming Classes” list for easy access.
You'll also receive an email reminder with a link about an hour before class start time.
We hope to be able to always accommodate all members though, should a need arise in the future for any reason, RSVPed members will get priority.
Unfortunately, this option isn't currently available.
Don't worry, though. There aren't any negative implications for missing and RSVP, you just may receive a reminder email to the class you can't attend.
Common questions about the checklist and how it works.
The self-care checklist is a simple tool to help you discover, and stay accountable to, your optimal daily self-care routine.
With the goal of both finding and developing the self-care practices that serve you best, it’s meant to be a fun way to track and reflect on your progress. Whether that’s breathwork, affirmations, gratitude, or any number of options, we believe that lasting change starts small, and wins of any size should be celebrated daily.
By keeping a daily log of your wins, over time the hope is that you’ll be able to identify the specific practices that you find most fulfilling. Each class will consist of a handful of these self-care practices, with the goal of helping you on the path to discovering what lights you up the most.
We also know that creating lasting habits requires consistency, and that consistency often requires systems. The self-care checklist is a system we've found that works for many.
Above all, the self-care checklist is meant to serve as inspiration and accountability, on the path to helping you “fill your cup” and towards finding the self-care practices that help you live at your highest vibration.
Simply check off your self-care wins as you go each day, and log your wins when done.
Whether from class-guided activities or your personal practice, each win should be treated as a celebration – you made the space, and were intentional about your self care today.
Once you’ve checked items off the list, you can either:
- “Save” Your Wins - There’s more to be done! Save your wins and come back later to submit.
- “Log Daily Wins” - Call it a day and celebrate the fact that you did the work. Amazing!
One checklist submission per day. Your list will reset daily at midnight Pacific Time.
We like to think of submitting your wins as an act of daily celebration. A moment to reflect on a given day, and acknowledge the self work that you did.
One of the core pillars of impactful self care is intentionality. You showed up, you did the work, and whether it’s two minutes or two hours, you were intentional about your practice.
The self-care checklist is no different. Your work doesn’t necessarily have to end, but logging your wins is a small, intentional way to celebrate your victories... and remind yourself of the great work you’re doing.
Yes! The goal of the self-care checklist is based on 3 principles:
- To help you stay accountable to your self-care routine
- To acknowledge your wins as they happen
- To help you identify the practices that serve you best over time
Have a better week than most? Amazing! Whether you attribute that to your self-care routine or any number of other factors, we’re happy for you 🙂 If you do think your routine had a meaningful impact, you’ll always have an ongoing log to review and reflect on what makes you feel like your best self.
The self-care checklist is a tool we developed to help with staying consistent and accountable to the small daily habits that we know serve us. Originally developed by Danika Brysha, to support her in her own journey of recovery, transformation, and wellness, she quickly learned that this powerful tool could be the resource that helped millions with the most challenging part of a self-care practice… getting it done.
After working with thousands on their own self-care and helping them utilize their own personalized self-care checklists, it became evident that this tool was meant for the masses. With some refining and crafting, we’ve taken the original self-care checklist and built it in a digital format that makes it easier than ever to stay accountable to the self-care habits that serve you.
Take a look over our self care checklist glossary for a brief intro and examples to go along with any of the core practices on the list.
Even better, attend a live class where your guide will walk you through any number of self care routines, supported by a community doing them right along with you.
Still stuck? Put a line out to the community. This loving group is always ready to help.
You can add up to 9 custom wins on a given day and they’ll log just like everything else. The core list is in no way definitive, and meant to serve as inspiration above all.
Find the practices that work for you and let us know if there are any glaring omissions. We’d love to hear what’s lighting you up from day to day.
If you’ve already submitted your checklist for the day, it will automatically reset each night at midnight PDT.
Thank you, international friends, for bearing with us. We hope to have localized options soon.
As long as you’re logged in to your SCS account, wins will carry over between your phone, computer, tablet, or any number of devices so you can keep track along the way.
Don’t worry. You did the work! Celebrate that much and remember that it’s not about what you put into some app as much as the fact that you’re doing it. Plus, you can always just tack them on to tomorrow’s checklist if you really want to.
Above all, the self-care checklist is meant to be fun. Tomorrow is another day 🙂
Yes! Every day you log your checklist you’ll get 50 Love Points just for showing up. Love points translate into Care Coin, which you can eventually spend in the SCS Shop.
Affirmation badges are another small way to celebrate your success and consistency. You’ll earn a unique badge for 7 days of wins, 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, and 365 days. Look at you now!
