30-Day “Reset” Challenge

January tends to get all the credit for “starting over.” I don’t know about you, but when January rolls around, our kitchen counters are still full of leftover holiday desserts, our Christmas tree still has opened presents under it, and the last thing on my mind is going to the gym.

February is usually a slog, although this year a little less! It’s leap year, so today I feel like I am winning at life. Plus, it’s my once-every-four-years half birthday. Yeah!

March is where it’s at. It’s almost spring! We, at large, cannot accept the fact that climate change is a real, scientifically-proven thing that is happening, and yet we whole-heartedly trust a ground hog when he pops up to tell us spring is coming early this year. I guess I’ll take what I can get. These hints of warmer weather in Philly recently have just been the best.

So with spring on the mind, I’ve been inspired to try my first-ever challenge. Let it be known: you can eat as much dessert as you want in this challenge, and I will never suggest that you should go to the gym. This is a different kind of challenge. A “reset” challenge if you will. I like the idea of starting fresh with the changing season, and making new growth with nature. If there is one thing I know to be true, it is the importance of living simply.

The objective of this challenge is simple: Complete each task every day, and don’t beat yourself up if you miss one here or there. It’s okay.

Download the image to your computer (click here). Print it out and hang it in your kitchen. Write out the tasks in your calendar or planner. Whatever will help you most in completing each day’s challenge is what I want you to do. If this is your first time trying a month-long challenge, I am joining you in that! Let’s reconvene in April to discuss how it went.

Leave a comment if you’re participating. I’d love to hear how you’re going to stick to your daily tasks! (I’m putting them in our monthly calendar.)

Inspiration for my 30-day “reset” challenge came from Apartment Therapy and Into Mind.

  1. This is tempting. I especially appreciate the insight that put “eat a healthy breakfast” on a Saturday morning, and not on a weekday. (My work morning breakfasts are scandalous.)

    • You know, I should have looked at a calendar when making this… Enjoy an unplanned day on a Friday? Clean your kitchen on a Tuesday? What was I thinking?! In my defense, you could take on this challenge in any month. You should do it!

  2. Victoria, I’m hopping on board a little late, but I am going to try this!! You have given me some good inspiration. I’m starting out small, but I’m hoping to get to all of these I really think they will simplify some of the unnecessary aspects of my life. I’m starting off tonight by watering my houseplants and am going to unsubscribe from emails, as they arrive and not just simply delete them. XO!

    • I’m so glad you’re joining in! I haven’t been able to do each one every day, but when I have extra time, I do a couple in one day. I’ve really been enjoying it!

      PS) I’m PHX-bound in two weeks! Any hiking recommendations?
