Join Me For A New Year Challenge + A Massive $775 Giveaway!

31 small changes in 31 days and a $775 giveaway to help you get started!
Filed Under > Everyday

A few weeks ago I caught myself off guard by the date. Actually, it wasn’t so much the date, but more by the fact of what the date meant. It meant that 2018 was almost over and 2019 was almost here.  I thought to myself, how could 2018 be over? There was so much change I wanted 2018 to bring. But in all the areas of my life I wanted to see “change” in 2018, I instead saw a massive backslide.

Which led me to thinking a lot about change, and how to go about making change actually happen.  And not just happen, but more importantly, stick. 

You see, I always have grand plans.  And maybe my plans are just too grand.  And maybe, just maybe I always seem to want to change parts of me that will never really change.  And maybe, just maybe, I’m now sounding like a Dr. Seuss book.

Dr. Seuss aside, I believe I’m on to something. Sometimes the best way to make something big happen is slowly, simply, one foot in front of the other, each and every day. And hence, the first annual 31 in 31 has been born.  

So what is 31 in 31?  Well, it’s 31 small changes in 31 days to renew, refocus and recharge your life.  The changes, or rather challenges, will focus on mental health, physical health, non-toxic living, and getting your sh** together. Each day you’ll be presented with a challenge of sorts, and yes there will be a big ol’ grand prize at the end.  Because we need accountability, and we all need prizes, and if there’s one thing I’ll always it’s competitive.

I’ve spread out and set up the challenges via a customizable calendar you’ll get emailed to you on the 30th when signing up, but the calendar is customizable so you can change what you do on what day based on your schedules.  Some days will only take 5 minutes, and some a bit more time. Some examples of the “challenges” will be things like: schedule all of your 2019 doctor’s appointments and don’t cancel (because you know we all wait till December to see every single doctor we go to), drink more water, to deleting 60 minutes of television from your DVR.  

The challenge won’t cost you a dime.  Yes, there will always be suggestions of products or calls to action. But spending money is not mandatory. The entire “challenge” will be via email and social media because let’s be honest that’s where we all live.  Emails will be going out the morning of the 31st with your calendar and everything you need to participate.  Then each day you’ll get an additional email with each day’s challenge.

If you want to truly participate I’m asking you to share your day’s challenge and if you’re accomplishing it on social media taking me and using the hashtag #31in31. I did mention a prize, basically, the more you share the more points you get.  We’ll also be sharing fun graphics, and questions that will be easily shareable throughout the challenge making it easy for you to earn points.  And the prize is BIG, so you’ll want to share.  Don’t worry all of this will be explained via emails!

So with small steps in mind, I say no there will be no major fasts, no purging of my entire life in one week, no 10 days to a new me.  There will just be simple ways to bring about change and make time for what has always made me (and likely you) the happiest.

And one more thing, there’s nothing magical about January 1st.  So if you’ve found you’re reading this on January 25ht, sign up, print it out, and just begin. Small steps lead to big leaps, and consistency is key so let’s do this friends!  Oh, and keep reading for a MAJOR ($775 value) giveaway to kick the challenge off right! Truly, MKR
