So here we are it’s February in Canada when we spend more time indoors and think about what we’re going to be able to do when the weather gets better.
For some of us we are still deep in the ritual of our New Years resolutions to eat clean, lose 40 lbs and solve world peace. Our goals are often lofty and set out by what the new trend in the media is. Maybe we are eating more quinoa and going to Crossfit.
One of the trends is to listen to what others think we need. We need to be thin, we need to look young. There are so many pressures to be the person others want us to be.
In Matt Cutts’ 3 minute Ted Talk he puts out the challenge to think of something you’ve always wanted to add to your life and try it for 30 days. It might be that you have always wanted to be a writer, finish reading a book, have more positive thoughts or maybe you just want to be more social. For 2015 why not embrace change but the change you want for yourself.
The challenge is simple, commit to yourself to step outside your comfort zone and embrace something new. This means doing something different for 30 days. So write that novel, try a new food daily, say hello to one new person everyday, take the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge, host a weekly potluck or just read a novel every night.
In 30 days reflect on your experience and the changes it created in your life. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Check out our Pinterest boards Let’s make 2015 different. And 30 Day Challenge for some inspiration. https://www.pinterest.com/lidkeas/
