Create a new success habit in 2016
We’re finishing up with a fun Instagram challenge that’s all about helping our community do just one thing that could make a big impact on their success and happiness in 2016.
Listed below are ten habits common among successful (and happy) people. Simply choose one habit you wish to take on, commit to it for 21 days and post to Instagram daily. We’ll be with you all the way! (For details on how to play scroll down.)
We’ve also included ideas on what you could post to Instagram.
What do you see, smell, feel, taste, or experience when you rise early?
You want to get fitter and make the most of the summer. Whether an outdoor or indoor activity, you’re committing to a habit that boosts your energy. We want to see action shots, what you’re wearing/drinking, where you are, the people you meet, beautiful smiles or fists pumping the air.
You want to tap into an inner calm and quiet to give you focus and clarity. Your photos could be a yoga pose, beautiful views of the beach, forest or park where you meditate, the sky as you look up lying down on the grass, sand between your toes or gardening (it’s meditative!).
You want to cut back on caffeine, junk food or sugar, eat more wholesome foods, start a veggie patch, buy organic local produce or kick a nasty habit. Share beautiful Instagram photos of how you’re living a cleaner life. We also recommend you talk to a health professional for expert advice on health matters.
“The more you thank life, the more life gives you to be thankful for.” Post photos of people, places, experiences and things you are thankful for.
Have you always wanted to learn how to cook, code or do the cha cha cha? Whatever it is, take us on your learning journey – the highs and the lows.
Do you have a habit of putting things off? Quit procrastinating and turn your to-do list into the-done list. We want to see beautiful after-shots, little treasures you discover or what it feels like to tackle something head-on.
It’s also time to let go of past hurts, guilt, negative energy, relationships and things that don’t serve your purpose anymore. Forgive, move on and make room for new energy. Give us a peek into what it means to let go.
It’s hard to listen when our minds are filled with noise. Speak less, judge less, understand more. Listen more – to others, to what’s around you, to your inner voice. What do you hear?
Your brain is always on and you don’t know how to just chill. Take one hour each day to switch off and chill out. You could be star gazing, reading by the pool, sleeping in, enjoying a trip to the spa or just sipping a cuppa – the possibilities are endless!
