Alternative Challenges


Here are the alternative challenges. April and August are the 'wild card' months during which you can take the month off, repeat a challenge, come up with your own challenge, or do one of the following alternative challenges. You can also do one of these challenges if ever you don't want to do the scheduled challenge.


These are purposely more 'selfish' challenges that ask us to focus on our own health, whether that's mental, physical or emotional. It can be awfully draining to continually think about how to fix the world - these  challenges are here to refill our tanks.


If you'd like to receive an email reminder whenever we start one of these challenges, sign up here. That way, you can follow along on Facebook or Instagram if you'd like some company while you undertake the challenge.
