30 day challenges are becoming increasingly popular. If you’ve never heard of a ’30 day challenge’ before, it is simply the process of trying or doing something new for thirty consecutive days.
NaNoWriMo (Writing a Novel in a month), Movember (growing a moustache or beard during November) and Dryathlon (giving up alcohol in January) are popular mainstream challenges – but 30 day challenges can actually be whatever you choose them to be.
One of the benefits of 30 day challenges is that activities are more likely to become habit after you’ve been doing them for 30 days. If you find that you enjoy a challenge, you may naturally incorporate it into your everyday life. If not, you’re only doing it for a short period of time and you’ve experienced something new.
