Thirty 30 Day Challenges To Jump Start Your Life

Have you ever wondered why you see so many 30-day challenge ideas online and in magazines? On TV? Recommended by your favorite influences? The short answer is that they work.

The long answer is that in 30 days you can be well on your way to forming a new habit. If you want something to stick long term, doing it for a month often does the trick. It typically takes that long to break a bad habit and form a good one!

A 30-day challenge gives you daily consistency, momentum, and accountability. With these three things, you are more likely to be successful with your new habit and continue it for the long run.

Types of 30-Day Challenges

You will usually find them within the following categories:

Physical Fitness – Examples: ab workout (or another specific part of the body), yoga, running, cycling, walking

Diet – Examples: clean eating, Whole30, intermittent fasting, no sugar

Mental Health – Examples: kindness, self care, self confidence, gratitude

Home & Life Organization – Examples: decluttering, productivity, bullet journal, Happy Planner

Finance & Saving – Examples: budgeting, saving, no spending

Exploring Creativity – Examples: writing, drawing, painting, doodling

Choosing the Right One

Before you decide to take on a 30-day challenge, make sure that it is appropriate and realistic. For example, you may want to check with a doctor before starting a new workout or diet challenge.

Then look at how general the challenge is. The more specific, the more likely you will be to succeed.

In other words, a diet challenge that concentrates on adding more protein to your meals will be more helpful than one that has you attempting all different goals each day.

Other considerations are how it will affect meal planning (for your family), the amount of time each day required, and how it impacts your daily routine.

I’ve collected 30 different challenges you may want to try (one at a time of course).

Whether you want to take on a 30-day challenge alone, with a friend, a child, or a family member, I’ve got ideas for you on this list! Go ahead and scroll down. Which one will you try first?
