Have you been struggling to make a change this January?
There are lots of exciting challenges that you could try for the month to set yourself a task, reach a goal and to raise some money for charity! Take a look below at our top picks…
Dry January 🍷
December can definitely be a time for excess, especially when it comes to both alcohol and rich food. If you’re really looking to set yourself a challenge, then Dry January could be the thing for you.
The task simply involves avoiding alcohol for the month of January, a brilliant opportunity for detoxing your system, improving your health and energy and a great experiment for exploring activities without the inclusion of alcohol.
If you’re feeling bold, then why not get people to sponsor you?! Any donations can go to any kind of charity, perfect for injecting some positive vibes into the new year.
30 Day Exercise Challenge 🏃
This challenge can be a great option if you’re looking to start back up your fitness routine after a busy December.
The challenge is pretty simple and involves completing one set of exercise, lasting no less than 30 minutes, each day of January.
Setting yourself goals can be a brilliant way to improve slowly, whilst even getting some friends involved can be great for motivation.
Unsure where to start? Simply start the process slow, opting for a 30 minute walk on day one and going up to a 5k run on day twenty!
Time Outdoors 🍃
Christmas can mean that we spend a lot of our time indoors, away from the cold, eating chocolate and relaxing to our hearts content.
The only issue with this is that by the time the new year comes around, we’re pretty unsure of how to get back outside and into the real world. The time outdoors challenge can be a great technique for coping with this.
Simply set a challenge of spending at least half an hour of time outdoors each day for the month of January, whether that’s walking to work, cycling to the shops or taking the dog for a walk in the park, there are plenty of options to try- all of them great for boosting mood and energy this new year!
