30 Days to 30 Challenge and a Better Life

We all love to use the word busy.

When friends ask how we’re doing: I’m so busy! When we are asked to run an errand: I’m soooo busy! We use it to sound important regarding work: Work is always busy, busy, busy.

I’ve been so busy this year, that big milestones {like my 30th birthday} have totally snuck up on me. So for the next 30 days following my 30th Birthday, I decided to challenge myself to improve my life with tasks that take a minimum of 10 Minutes per Day. No one is ever too busy for 10 minutes a day, especially when it comes to improving your life.

I wanted these tasks to fall into the following categories:

Physical Improvement. I am starting this challenge about 6 Weeks after giving birth to my son so I wanted to prioritize slowly getting back into shape.

Emotional Well-Being. Providing myself with the opportunity to de-stress and strengthen my emotional stability.

Spiritual Life. Being intentional about my faith entering daily life.

Here is how I plan to start my life as a 30-something:
