30 Day Challenges, Do They Work?

3 Min Read

What if I told you that the key to your new life is just 30 days away? What if I told you that all it takes is a month-long challenge?

It sounds too good to be true, right? But the real question is: Do they work?

Aristotle said it best: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

So how can you turn this old Greek wisdom into a new healthy habit?

Just try it for 30 days!

It’s the most effective way to start building a healthy lifestyle—and perfecting it. Repeating the same habits for 30 days straight makes you more likely to ingrain them into your daily routine. And once those habits become part of your daily routine, they’ll stick for good—you’ll have long-term success on your hands!

First, you need to decide that you want to make the change. Before committing to any challenge, whether running a mile every morning or learning to speak French in one month, make sure that it aligns with your goals and is realistic for your lifestyle.

Second, the trick is to break things down into manageable chunks, so your brain doesn’t get overwhelmed. Plan your 30 days. What do you have to do each day for this challenge?

The third stage starts: think of your 30-day challenge as a competition. Gamify the process of achieving your goals. Keep an accountability checklist or calendar.

Committing to a 30-day challenge has three main benefits:

  1. It provides the boost you may need to get started making a change.
  2. Once started, the daily repetition boosts momentum to implement the desired change consistently.
  3. As you keep going, achieving small successes can help motivate you to keep going and finish strong!

 

Plus, something must be said about the pride and achievement you get from completing the challenge. You’ll feel like a champion when you reach the finish line!

Okay, are you ready to do a 30-day challenge?
