A 30 Day
Challenge is a well-known strategy to help new habits stick. It is a
great way to try new things, get variety into your daily life and yet undertake
a new endeavor without putting too much pressure on yourself. It’s just
long enough to shake up your routine but it is short enough to not feel
overwhelming. You can do a 30 Day Challenge for just about
anything. A few of my favorites are fitness or health challenges, healthy
eating challenges or even better sleep challenges.
To start, well
you just begin!
Pick your challenge and do it. One change - one day at a time for 30 days. Want to take a walk every day? Plan it into your schedule. Want to work out every day? Set a daily time to do it. Want to sleep better? Plan to stop surfing the web a half hour before bed, or put your phone away or practice self-care to make you snooze.
You just have to persist for 30 days to be successful. Set your challenge to be reasonable and carry through. You can do it!
