Leg Up Challenge
For your leg up challenge to any month you choose, you have one activity per day for one month to complete from the calendar – similar to an advent calendar. Your mission is to start within 5 days of reading this. You can choose to start at number 1, or align yourself with the date of the month until you have completed all activities. You can complete the challenge as an individual or with loved ones. If you choose or are inclined, feel free to use the #legupchallenge (and tag me!) on social media and I will repost one activity per day.
May these activities not only give you a leg up but promote your wellbeing and happiness.
