I love the idea of always trying to improve myself towards becoming the best version of me that I can possibly be.
Every now and then I would start a 30-day challenge to improve a certain aspect of my life.
Whether it is to lose weight, change a habit, or help a community, taking up a challenge can help solidify a new habit that you want to improve or incorporate into your daily routine, or eliminate that nasty habit that hasn’t been good for your health or well-being.
While many people wait until January to set their new year’s resolutions, the window of opportunity is always open for those who want to set new goals. In fact, now is the right time to take up a challenge and strive towards improvement.
Since I started my blog in August, I have been thinking of creating a challenge that is, in such a way, focused on a few areas of my life. Rather than lay out my project for the entire year in detail, I have made a list of specific things I want to work on every week for the next 3 months.
In the next 90 days, I will embark on an exciting journey that I believe will lead me to an even happier and more meaningful life.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’m incredibly blessed and happy, but I also believe there are always areas in which I can improve.
For this 90-day personal challenge, I wrote down things that I want to change in my life.
After carefully examining my list, I have identified five general aspects of my life that I need some improvement.
Here are the five general areas that I would like to improve:
HEALTH & WELLNESS
- Achieve a healthy weight
- Eat more plant-based food
- Move more – regularly and consistently
- Get enough rest and sleep
- Feel healthy for real
- Have special “me” time
- Take time to pray and be grateful
- Start a journal
- Create/do something new
- Ditch bad habits and start good ones
MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIPS
- Prioritize our relationship
- Respect alone time and plan fun together –regularly
- Communicate with kindness
- Support and understand each other
- Spend quality time with family and friends
- Embrace a minimalist lifestyle
- Adopt a simple living
- Keep a simple wardrobe
- Pay it forward
- Protect the environment
- Spend less money
- Pay off debts
- Earn extra money
- Save up for an emergency fund
- Build a strong credit
NOTE: You can also create your own list of things that you want to improve using my example above. If you need help with that, please send me a quick note using the contact form below and I’d be happy to share some helpful tips.
Here we go…
