It begins! The Minimalist Challenge

Jan 29, 2017

I took on this challenge a couple of years ago but it seems like quite a fitting time to try it again. It’s quite fitting as I seem to be having more breakdowns these days. She says with a light flick of the wrist. I’m not suggesting that this is going to help anything at all, I just feel like I need to mix stuff up a bit.

I’ve taken this minimalist challenge from Anuschka Rees’ Pinterest and I’m going to attempt it day by day. So here it is:

Day 1: Stay offline for one day (You might notice that this says ‘offline’ so tomorrow there will be no post…)

Day 2: Meditate for fifteen minutes

Day 3: Declutter your digital life

Day 4: No-complaint day

Day 5: Identify your 4 to 6 main priorities

Day 6:Follow a morning ritual

Day 7: Streamline your reading list

Day 8: Learn to enjoy solitude

Day 9: Downsize your beauty collection

Day 10: No email or social media until lunch

Day 11: Evaluate your commitments

Day 12: Define your goals for this year

Day 13: Clean out your closet

Day 14: Take a step towards learning a new skill

Day 15: Examine your daily habits

Day 16: Don’t buy anything for 24 hours

Day 17: Practice single tasking

Day 18: Unfollow and unfriend

Day 19: Go for a walk and practice mindfulness

Day 20: No TV all day, read instead

Day 21: Journal for 20 minutes

Day 22: Create a relaxing bedtime routine

Day 23: Go bare-faced

Day 24: Practice gratitude

Day 25: Leave a whole day unplanned

Day 26: Identify your stress triggers

Day 27: Clear out your junk drawer

Day 28: Let go of a goal

Day 29: Turn off notifications

Day 30: Evaluate your last five purchases

I’ll be documenting my month to see how it goes, so let’s get this shit done!!
