A Different Approach to Lent

4 Mar

Nurture ImageThis week I have been inspired by Lent, that 40-day period in the run-up to Easter when we traditionally choose to give something up.  Maybe you are thinking about giving up chocolate for Lent?  Or maybe alcohol?  A couple of year’s ago, I chose to give up watching TV during Lent.

I would like to suggest that you do something different this year.  Our minds can struggle with the idea of giving something up or stopping a particular behaviour.  You might have experienced this if you’ve decided to go on a diet in the past or give up smoking; you will have noticed that food or cigarettes kept finding their way to the forefront of your mind!

Our minds find it much easier to start a new habit, to bring something new into our lives, and this is what I would like to challenge you to do during Lent.  What new habit would you like to establish?  What would you like more of in your life?  The next 40-day period is the perfect opportunity to do this.

I talk about this in my regular Tuesday Challenge video this week and you can watch it below.

I would love to know what new positive habit you have decided to create for yourself?  What are you choosing to bring more of into your life?  Let me know and show your commitment by commenting below this blog post.

Just think, by Easter you could have a wonderful, new, supportive habit as part of your everyday life!

    I am bringing in exercise – goal is to walk a minimum of 10,000 steps per day.
