So this link popped up on my LinkedIn feed last week:
Looking through the 16 listed ideas got me thinking – I love this type of thing. How might I do something similar? What simple challenges can I set myself that I will enjoy, that will stretch my mind, and that I will benefit from? Oh, and are free. That’s an important one.
I came up with:
1. Practice my German everyday – I need to learn for my wife and daughter (both German). So I’m using the Duolingo app on the train to work in the morning (rather than reading a free paper).
2. Go for a walk every lunch time. I spend too much time in the office. 15-30 mins spent stretching my legs is good for both my brain, and my stress levels.
3. Switch the tv off at10pm and go to bed. I often stay up way to late watching crappy tv. Not good – and I always regret it in the morning.
So, I’m giving it a go. I’ll keep you posted.
My question for everyone else is – what would your three challenges be?
- Something simple
- Good for you
- Free to implement
- Making you a happier person
Have a go. Best of luck.
