The festive season is well and truly upon us and it is the perfect time of the year to challenge yourself to do something different - to be a bit different!
All around us are lights, music, shops and the lure of shopping. Parties are often in the diary and friends and family making plans to be together. So while the fun and festivities are taking place, we’d like to challenge you to challenge yourself. To use this festive season to do something different, to do something for others, to stretch yourself and tap into your altruistic self.
Our week’s challenge to you:-
Day 1: Do a household chore you don’t normally do (take out the rubbish / make supper)
Day 2: Speak to someone new (at the office, in your neighbourhood)
Day 3: Smile at THREE strangers (even if they don’t smile back)
Day 4: Let someone in front of you (in the car / at a door)
Day 5: Talk to the person serving you (at the tills / delivering post / in a restaurant)
Day 6: Give THREE honest compliments to someone
Day 7: Do a random act of kindness for a stranger. (eg: pay for their parking / help them carry their shopping)
Without challenge there is no change. Change is needed for growth.
Please let us know how you get on - we’d love to hear how it went and how you felt doing this challenge. Try and pay it forward and get others to join you….
Why not challenge us? We’d love it!
