Whether it is a 30 day challenge to encourage you to read more, exercise, eat better, or get better at a hobby, 30 day challenges are less intimidating way to develop habits, skills, or just try something new. Track your finances (to the cent!) for 30 days. Run or walk outside 1 mile every day for 30 days. Cut fast food from your diet for 30 days. Get up 30 minutes earlier every day for 30 days. The options are endless.
Help a teenager if you can. You can mentor her. Listen to him. Be there for her to talk to. Give him advice. Teens need many positive role models in their lives.
Have two of something? Haven’t used something in a while? NEVER have used something? Didn’t even know you owned something?? Time to donate something. Fill a box or two and lug it to a local donation center.
Courage manifests itself in different ways. Stand up for yourself. Stand up for others.
There is no reason not to do this. You could directly help save lives. You could also help scientific researchers find new treatments or cures for diseases, cancers, infections, et cetera. Make sure your family knows.
If you are eligible, please donate your blood. Go for the snacks, stay for the saving lives.*
*I didn’t write that sentence, I saw it (or something close to it) in an online review for a blood donation center.
It doesn’t matter if it’s not your sidewalk, not your car to dig out, or not your driveway. Be a good neighbor & help everyone in your area by shoveling some snow. It is very good exercise and satisfying work; you will feel so proud when you see the sidewalk you cleared.
Mentor a child, a young adult, a struggling neighbor. Helping others will teach you lessons about yourself.
