This month I’ve participated in a 30 day mindfulness challenge offered through Whitney Hansen Coaching. I met Whitney on Instagram and have enjoyed her personal finance posts and general life perspective so I was excited to try the challenge!
This challenge couldn’t have come at a better time as I’ve spent the month of July unemployed and working on building a better version of myself. After losing my job, my mind was just filled with STUFF: worry, anxiety, moments of panic, fear, shame, massive to do lists…I was really scattered at first. After the initial craziness died down, I realized that I want to use this time to not only find a job, but to work on myself. The mindfulness challenge help center me, bring my mind back to the present, and stay focused.
It was exciting waking up and checking my email to see what the task would be for the day! Without giving too much away, I’ll say there is a wide variety that covers so many aspects of mindfulness. There’s something for everyone: some days will be really easy (reading for me) and others will really challenge you (meditating for me). I also enjoyed interacting with the other people in the challenge via a private Facebook group that Whitney set up. It was fun and inspiring to see what other people were doing with the challenge tasks!
Whitney’s offering another 30 day mindfulness challenge starting on August 1st! Did I mention it’s free?! You can learn more and sign up here!
I highly recommend the course if you’re even slightly curious about mindfulness, looking to learn more about yourself, get out of your comfort zone and try new things, refocus your life, or all the above!
