Here it is again, the New Year!! While this time of year may not change anything for some, for others, it can be a time for closing chapters and new beginnings. Most people tend to focus on what to STOP doing or eliminate. What about if you added something new to your life and did it for 30 days? And the thing you wanted to eliminate just went away naturally or at least with more ease. It just so happens that 30 days is the right amount of time needed to create a new habit.
Why do we challenge ourselves for 30 days?
Creates healthy habits that can last a lifetime
Set good examples for your family and peers
Sets the stage for more 30 day challenges
Challenge creates change.
The next step is to decide what do you want to add. What do you want to change? If you have a strong desire for something – you can do anything for 30 days. Look below at how adding something new can naturally create something you want to improve.
