With the new year coming close, I present to you a tool to help you achieve the 30 day challenge. Before I show you the tool, let us first understand what is 30 day challenge.
It takes 30 days to form a habit. Thus if you take any new habit and persistently follow it for 30 day consecutive days without a gap then it becomes a habit. This is the 30 day challenge i.e taking a new habit and persistently following it. The first few days are full of enthusiasm only to be met by strong obstacles. Old habits urge you to stay the same. But you need to stay determined. The starting phase is the hardest. Slowly however the path is cleared. By giving yourself a challenge it is certainly not easy however gradually you will realize that you are able to improve all facets of life.
Now pick up a 30 day challenge, create a calendar, challenge your friends and stay socially accountable. Stay inspired, picture your goal and write down your inspiration.
Here is a tool which I have designed, to help you keep track of your 30 day challenge.

Here are examples of some 30 day challenges which you can take :
- Take a 30 day sugar free challenge: Do not consume sugar in any form for the next 30 days
- Talk to one stranger each day : This is a great one to cure approaching anxiety. Have you ever resisted the temptation to talk to someone because you were afraid and said to yourself that you actually don’t want to talk to her/him anyway?Not anymore. After 30 strangers you will understand people are just people and there is nothing weird in speaking to someone you don’t know.
- Take one picture each day : This one gets harder towards the end of the challenge because at one point you will run out of the easy shots.
- Take a 30 minute walk each day : Walking is healthy, relaxing and inspiring. It is both easy and free. A great exercise while walking is to observe other people and think about what difference and similarities are between you and them. This will definitely increase your empathy and your observing skills.
- Practice (at least) one completely selfless act each day : Go out of your way to help some one else out who may or may not deserve your kindness. Take out your neighbors trash. Give Rs.50/- to a homeless person. Do something that takes real efforts on your part while brightening the day of the other.
Take up new challenges after every 30 days and just observe your evolution.
