It’s a fact. We get happier when we accomplish something, when we make or create something, or by enjoying an activity.
What do you want to do? Making plans will help you to use your time more effectively and to focus on a positive outcome.
The pure fact of having a goal in mind will help you reach it.
I discovered I really love to challenge myself through 30-day-challenges.
Right now I’m in the middle of the ‘Rewild your Life’ challenge, which encourages me to spend time outdoors everyday.
The thing is, I already spend a lot of time in nature, but this challenge encourages me to spend that time being more aware, it encourages me to develop a deeper connection with nature, by taking the time to really see, hear, feel and experience.
I also decided to keep a journal during these 30 days. I bound the journal myself on the first day of the challenge. I used a variety of paper, like eco-friendly aquarel paper, eco friendly soft roman paper and old magazines.
In my journal I write and draw about my rewilding experiences each day, and I use different techniques and materials when drawing. I also put in all kinds of things I find on my hikes, like leaves and feathers, and of course photo’s that I took.
Today is day 19 of the challenge, and here are some pictures of my journal so far.
The experience thusfar has been great, I love my moments in nature and really appreciate the wild around me on a different level.
In fact, I love it so much, that I already decided to stay on another 30 days.
Have you ever tried a 30-day challenge, or did a 30 day project?
It’s a great way to make you more aware of how you are spending your time. 30 days is not too overwhelming, but enough time to learn a new habit, to get rid of an old one or learn a new skill! Long enough to have fun and to really learn something. Short enough to keep focussed and stay light.You’ll be amazed at what you can do in 30 days!
