Day 1 – Smile To Others
Just the practice of smiling should make you feel good. Practice smiling and giving a smile to random people that you meet. Of course, be careful and use discretion but I’m sure someone will love getting a smile and you will feel your spirited being lifted.
Day 2 – Practice Love and Less Judgement
Today, practice letting things go. The world doesn’t need your opinion today. People near you don’t need your judgment and your body doesn’t need the confusion of judging people. Let it go and practice love and less confusion.
Day 3 – Leave Nice Notes For Strangers
This is one of my favorite things to do 🙂
Write 5 nice notes and leave them behind the window on 5 random cars.
Day 4 – Get Flowers
Buy flowers and leave them on a desk of one of your colleagues (don’t say it was you).
Day 5 – Date With Yourself
Yes! Today is about and for you. Take yourself out on a nice date in your city! I know it might feel awkward if that’s the first time you’re eating out by yourself. But that’s the whole point. I want you to befriend yourself. When you do, spending time alone will be as spending time with your best friend. Besides, you deserve to go to a nice restaurant and treat yourself. Make it a real treat.
Day 6 – Visualize Your Perfect life
In the morning, spend about 10 min visualizing your perfect life. Do shortly after you wake up when everything is still mellow and quiet.
Visualize who are you in your perfect life, how you feel, who is with you, what you do.
then, throughout the day allow yourself to go back to that vision.
Day 7 – No Complaining
Go a full day without complaining, not even once, not even a little bit.
Day 8 – Morning Meditation
Meditate in the morning for 15 min. Simply sit down in a lotus position (or if that’s not available for you, simply crossed leg), close your eyes, and focus on your breath. The goal is to still your mind, so this is not the time to plan your day! You want to empty your mind. If a thought comes, don’t engage with it. Let it be and go back to deep breathing.
Day 9 – Affirmations
Stand in front of the mirror and tell yourself 30 things you love about yourself. Do it in the morning and see the true strength and beauty in yourself.
Day 10 – Gratitude
Before going to sleep, write down in your journal what you’re grateful for in your life.
And when 10 days pass, think about how you feel. Which day felt the best? And how do you feel now that the challenge is over?
