The One Week Minimalism Challenge

The One Week Minimalism Challenge

Sometimes the only way to really know what’s important in life is to strip yourself down to the bare essentials. We live in an age of “too much”. Too much information. Too much food. Too much constant stimulation.

So I have a challenge for you. Okay, this is actually three challenges.

I tried this myself for one week & at the end, I was hooked. You don’t realize how much mental energy you waste doing certain things throughout the day.

Challenge one: Limit yourself to one form of social media.

We don’t really need to be on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, AND Pinterest. We’re not preaching anti-technology, social media can be an amazing tool. But with everything, moderation. Creating rules for yourself creates discipline, pick one form of social media to engage on, and stop using everything else. The world won’t end if you get off Twitter (or Facebook).

Challenge two: Don’t drink any calories.

Soda, sugary drinks, it’s just money & your life down the drain. Water is good for you. Unlike food where you need wide diet to be healthy, water is the only essential liquid you need. Save those calories for real food, and stop wasting money on empty calories.

Challenge three: Go to bed at 9pm.

This was the hardest part for me. I naturally have always been a night owl. Forcing yourself to go to bed at 9 am does something amazing though, it puts a firm limit on your day. Sudden you start to think in terms when you need to get things done because you only have so many hours in the day. It forces you to make dinner, it forces you to brush your teeth, it forces you to think & plan your day.

And then you wake up extra early the next day with a few extra hours to be productive in the morning. Or maybe just relax.

Try all three of these challenges for one week & I guarantee you will feel amazing and have a hard time stopping.
