Starting April 1, the Carpe Juvenis team is going to take on a 30 day challenge. There are 30 days in April, hence why it is called the ’30 Day Challenge.’ There can be challenges every month, but we are starting this April and we’ll see how well it goes before committing even more time. Before the 30 Day Challenge even begins, though, we are faced with our first challenge: what to challenge ourselves with! How does one go about deciding what to improve and how to make something challenging? We came up with a list, and if you have any other suggestions, please send them our way!
It is tough to choose just one from this list, but we think that focusing on one challenging thing first will help us stick with it and actually achieve our goals. There is only one rule of this Challenge: do the thing you say you are going to do each day for the entire 30 days. That’s it! It might be hard, it might be the push you need to start something you’ve been delaying, and it might even be life changing. We can’t wait to find out.
30 Day Challenge Ideas (things you will do every day):
1. Don’t hit the snooze button.
2. Read the newspaper every morning.
3. Journal every day.
4. Read one play every night.
6. Take one picture a day.
8. Cook a new recipe.
9. Go to bed early.
10. Send a handwritten letter.
11. Tell someone you love them.
12. Watch a movie.
13. Write a page of your novel.
14. Apply to internships.
15. Study another language for one hour.
Good luck, keep us posted on how it goes, and remember: good things take time.
