Being stuck at home due to this pandemic has been a trying time for all of us. If you are anything like me, you’ve been eating (or drinking) your feelings as a way to cope with all of the additional stress in your life. If you’re also like me, you’re over it. At some point, eating your feelings makes you feel worse, not better, and maybe you’re ready to make a change, and that’s where the 30 Day Challenge comes in. If you’re not there, no problem. You do you. And you can still join us in our 30 Day Challenge because much like those choose your own adventure books, you decide what you’re focusing on from April 1-April 30 (the day the Safer at Home order will hopefully end).
For my 30 Day Challenge, I’m going to focus on improving my health. Eating vegetables at every meal, not mindlessly snacking throughout the day, and moving my body more. I have found that I’m not sleeping as well and my body/joints hurt more when I’m this overweight and eating poorly. My husband and I are doing this together, but I thought I’d take all of you along for the ride too, in case you needed support to accomplish something during the next 30 days at home.
Not interested in what I’m doing? Great! What can you focus on for the next 30 days that would bring you or your kids joy? Could you focus on teaching your kids important life skills like cooking and gardening? Maybe you’d like to read every day and want to get our June Book Club book done? Or perhaps you’d like to get a jump start on your spring cleaning? It’s up to you! Pick something to focus on for the next 30 days and join us in this 30 Day Challenge! We’re stuck at home anyway, so we might as well accomplish something! Even better, make it a family affair! You shouldn’t be the ONLY one cleaning, reading, and cooking! These are all important life skills that many young adults are lacking. Give your child the basic skills they need in life NOW, when you have time!!
