Try taking a photo a day, starting a new morning routine or repeating positive affirmations every day for 30 days and watch how your life changes. Our lives are made of our daily routines, so when you’re looking to improve yourself start there!

Here are 9 challenges for personal development. Pick one or pick em all and watch your life improve!

7 Days Of Tech Free Mornings

Start your day off right! Are you guilty of grabbing your phone to read emails and scroll social media in the morning? Try putting your phone away for a set amount of time each morning for a week and see how much you can connect with yourself and your family instead!

Better yet, try a detox from social media!

Minimalism Wardrobe

Clear out what you don’t want and donate it! Embrace the minimalist lifestyle and Declutter your closet and drawers. It feels so good and you might rediscover some old favourites.

Take A Photo A Day

Take a photograph a day to help document your life. This is one of my favourite challenges because even though I know you don’t want to take a picture when you are looking and feeling rough one day, you can look and see the progress you’ve made. And it doesn’t always have to be a photo of you, it could be a flower, your morning coffee or your dog! Just make sure to get a few of your pretty face as well!

Start A Journal

Start a personal development journal, gratitude or manifestation journal! Check out my law of attraction journal, 365 daily journal prompts, gratitude journal prompts, 30 self improvement journal prompts, printable manifestation journal, mental health journal prompts and my course on how to start journaling. Yes, I obviously like to write… a lot!

Speak Affirmations Out Loud

When you speak it, you’re more likely to believe it and attract it. Feeling down or unmotivated? Try speaking affirmations out loud for the next 30 days and watch how much your life and mindset changes.

Start your day off right with morning affirmations.

Attract more money with money affirmations.

Show yourself some love with affirmations for self love.

Turn Off Your Phone For A Day

Disconnect from your phone and connect with your reality. Go for a walk or hike, make a decadent dinner from scratch, call your mom. Try a social media detox even just one day a week can really help out in to perspective what really matters.

Create A Morning Routine

How you start your morning shapes how the rest of your day will go. I challenge you to change up your morning routine for one that inspires you to be happy and positive.

Morning routine ideas:

  • Wake up 15 minutes early
  • Open the curtains to let the sunlight in
  • Meditate, even if it’s in the shower
  • Write down 5 things you are grateful for
  • Smile
  • Repeat self love affirmations
  • Take the stairs
  • Give someone a compliment

Playlist Of Old Songs

I love this one! Old songs bring back memories and evoke emotions, some good and some bad, but all very real. Find some good old songs and make a playlist to start reminiscing.

Start A Hobby

Most of us forget about our passion as we get busier and older. We get stuck in the routine and leave very little time for our own interests. Having a hobby is great for personal development and improving your mental health.

Hobbies For Women:

  • Crocheting
  • Journaling
  • Origami
  • Photography
  • Painting
  • Gardening
