We all have bad habits that we would love to change.
Some of us would like to be more consistent with our exercise routines, others would like to stay more consistent with nutrition, and some of us would like to control our emotions in a better way.
Lent is around the corner starting on the evening of Valentine’s Day (02/14) and for some of us, it starts on Ash Wednesday (02/17).
I have been participating in a Lent Challenge for the past 2 years with family and friends. You do not have to be religious to participate in this Lent Challenge, but it is always a great practice to keep Hope and Faith in your GOD.
All you need to do is pick something in your daily life that you would really love to improve.
For the 4th year in a row, I will be maintaining a vegan diet during Lent (48 Days for me). This is a personal choice for me to enhance my willpower, discipline, and faith.
Here are a few other examples of habits that I improved upon during Lent from previous years:
- No candy/baked sweets (this was tough since I have a major sweet tooth)
- No alcohol (This was another tough one, but you will be able to manage)
- Pescatarian Diet (Fish only and No meat)
- No red meat (Chicken and fish only)
- Vegan (Past 3 years and counting…)
The Lent challenge will help you improve overall as a human being: spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. It will test your character, discipline, love, and appreciation for all matters in life. It will bring you closer to yourself, your GOD, the universe.
You can choose to keep it simple or you can challenge yourself. You might feel some withdrawals in the first week but please keep this one thing in mind; we can really do anything that we put our minds to. Just keep Faith and Hope, and 48 days (or 46 days if you start on Ash Wednesday) will be over before you know it.
So, join me for the 2021 Lent Challenge, and let’s improve our daily habits together.
Here are a few other good practices from family and friends from our previous Lent Challenges:
- No smoking
- Praying or meditating daily
- No chocolate
- No coffee (tough but it can be done!)
- No soda
- Expressing gratitude daily
- Walking daily (10-30 Minutes)
I will see you on the other side of the finish line! Please share with me what habit(s) that you will be improving during the 2021 Lent Challenge. I would love to be a part of your journey and please reach out to me if I can help in any way.
Cheers to your Health,
