I read somewhere that if you want your brain to adapt to a pattern, all you have to do is keep repeating it till your brain accepts it as a habit. Today I want to share one such experience with you guys.
On 8th November 2016, I started a 90 happy-positive days challenge. The only condition for this challenge was to stay happy and positive for ninety consecutive days. After having plenty of negative days, I decided enough was enough! I strategically planned the challenge so that the 91st day was the day I turned 22.
The duration of my challenge was 8th November 2016 – 5th February 2017.
I turned 22 on 6th of February, this year.
Duration : 90 Days
Platform : Instagram
I chose Instagram as a platform because it is the only platform which I use everyday.
The rules were simple:
1) Read and write a positive or happy affirmation everyday.
2) Post a picture of what made you happy today.
Initially, it was very difficult because staying happy all the time is not easy. But as the time passed, I started believing in myself. I started looking for silver linings in every situation. By the time it was the New Year, I was happier than ever!
My entire journey was documented on Instagram and the support I got from everyone was super heart-warming.
This challenge was really interesting and fun to do. I have grown up a lot as a person and I am really proud of myself that I took up this challenge.Also, everyone was extremely supportive and helpful, asking me not to give up whenever I was struggling. Every positive affirmation changed my perspective a little more every day.
This challenge turned me into a better person and I urge you guys to give it a shot. I will post the list of affirmations, they really set the tempo.
P.S. If there are more such challenges which you have personally tried, please let me know. I want to do everything which helps me to grow.
