But even if you just take a selfie for yourself and don't necessarily post it, having those pics to look back on can really shine a light on your progress.

A little indulgent selfie-taking never hurt anyone.

3) Find A Made-For-You Challenge

Let's be real, sometimes those creatives juices just ain't flowing but you still want to embrace the idea of a selfie challenge.

So, why not find one that's already done for you?

Plenty of creators in all different industries create their own selfie challenges to get their followers engaged. You just have to find the one that works for you.

Wait, what?

Take a selfie and post the first one you take?
