Do you challenge yourself periodically?

Over the years I have realized that it is important to challenge yourself periodically…

Challenge yourself to experiment
Challenge yourself to try something new
Challenge yourself to taste a new cuisine
Challenge yourself to explore a new place
Challenge yourself to laugh for three hours
Challenge yourself to run an extra kilometer
Challenge yourself to do NOTHING for a day
Challenge yourself to live like a child for a day
Challenge yourself to think NOTHING for a day
Challenge yourself to NOT check mails for a day
Challenge yourself to wake up 30 minutes early
Challenge yourself to be silent for 1 day, 1 week
Challenge yourself to get out of the comfort zone
Challenge yourself to only think positive for a day
Challenge yourself to stay away from the news for a day
Challenge yourself to do something you would never do
Challenge yourself to do something you have never done in life
Challenge yourself to run, skip, jump and hop for thirty minutes
Challenge yourself to sleep through the day and stay up all night
Challenge yourself to keep away from Facebook, Twitter, Google for a day
Challenge yourself to NOT do what you usually do every day [at least for a day]
Challenge yourself to use your left hand only for a day [or right hand if you are a left-hander]

In the long run…
Self-imposed challenges
Make you grow
Make you evolve
Make you ponder
Make you change
And actually make you happy….

  1. I like your list. I have been making a point to try some of these. I think it's so important to shake things up once in a while. (I like the shape of the list, too.)
