I chose this article this morning for two reasons: first it is written by a Young Reporter @Sofia Elaheebocus from the Royal Russell School, who is showing great potential for a career in journalism and secondly I happen to be taking part in what feels like ALL the January challenges.
Dry January, Veganuary, Red January.... it sounds a bit exhausting but we have made it into a challenge in our house. You should know I am starting out a bit behind my husband and son as both are full time vegans and neither drink :) BUT for one whole month (hopefully longer) we will all be equals in this house.
In all seriousness, January is a time to reset. It also has the potential to make you feel like a failure if you say your are going to do something and don't. My advice, and take it with a grain of salt... just try. Try to be better than yesterday and stop counting days! It's been XX days since you had a cigarette or XX days that you have exercised. Just embrace everyday you do what you set out to do and slowly but surely these will turn into habits.
Good luck, have a great reset and be kind to yourself!
January has famously been known as the month to change after the joys of Christmas and New year’s celebration, to a more healthier lifestyle. Opportunities such as ‘dry January’ and ‘Veganuary’ allow people to change their lifestyle after a busy festive period, to a much more healthier and happier one during the new year.
