Why 30 Day Challenges Work

It’s January 1, 2018. New year, new me, right?

Not that easy, as we all know. But it all starts with small changes. And to do that, I am going to be tackling 30 day challenges for the year.

I’ve done one so far, and that turned out pretty well.

I got this idea from one of my favorite Ted Talks. Click here to watch it now (You won’t regret it!)

My hope is that the lists of “things I eventually want to do,” “habits I would like to break,” or “skills I eventually want to develop,” shrink. And that my lists of skills, accomplishments, and goals achieved outnumber the rest.


Whether you’re adding something small to your schedule, removing an unhealthy habit, or just having more fun, these challenges will push you to achieve more and do more to invest in a healthier and happier you.

Done is better than perfect.

I’ve decided that this is my mantra for all of 2018. Most times, I’m too scared to pick up a pen, snap a picture, or publish my thoughts because it doesn’t meet the high expectations I set for myself. I’m ready to move toward progress, not perfection.

So, for January I’m starting small. Each day I want to meditate for 5 minutes a day. Just 5 minutes. Any time of day, just 5 minutes where I get to breathe and recenter myself.

I’ll check back in to see how it’s going — comment below what you are going to accomplish in 30 days!
