Happy Monday! It is time to take on this weeks Challenge! Bucket List Challenge! This week your challenge is going to be a really FUN one!! We’re already a few weeks into January, so let’s get started with our 2017 Bucket List! Bucket lists are great because: • They make you stop and think about what you really want to do, experience, and achieve in your life • They are a great reminder that life is short and you should live it passionately and with intention • They keep you in touch with your dreams and encourage you to get creative and curious! The key to a successful bucket list… is to remove the limits from your mind! Get it out of your head for a moment about what you “think” is possible… and dream BIG! So, the first step is to brainstorm ideas and try to think of things you’d like to do this year as if there are no limitations. Your bucket list should get you excited. It should stir up some emotion inside of you- if it doesn’t, then don’t add it to your list! To avoid having too much on your list this year, try putting just one thing on your list for each month. This way, you have a plan for something fun and exciting that you want to do each month in 2017! Once you’re done, share your list with the rest of us! You up for trying something new this year and challenging yourself with a 2017 bucket list!? Share your list in a comment below and let’s all be a part of an AMAZING 2017!!

WELCOME TO YOUR FIRST MONDAY CHALLENGE OF 2017! Every Monday I post a challenge that is designed to challenge you and your lifestyle to be healthier and more meaningful. Are you ready? Vision Board Challenge: Let’s start the New Year off right and with INTENTION. Time to get creative! Have you ever heard of a vision board?! Whether you said yes or no- your challenge this week is to MAKE ONE! :) So what is a vision board? A vision board is basically a board (made out of poster or cork) where you post meaningful pictures or words that represent goals, attributes, or things you would like to attract and work towards in your life. I believe in being proactive rather than reactive in your life. Part of that means you have to FIRST know what you WANT! Once you know that… you can move forward toward your goals. Your vision board will serve as a source of inspiration. It’s there to keep you focused, motivated, and to recharge you with positive energy. The one rule of creating a proper vision board is this: ANYTHING is allowed and there are no limitations! Just open your mind and don’t let anything hold you back. Here’s how to create your vision board: 1. Pick out your board: cork board, poster board, pin board, etc. 2. Next, get markers, stickers, a glue stick, scissors, and a lot of magazines that you love. 3. Next, cut and paste words or pictures from the magazines of quotes, sayings, or affirmations that you love, places you want to visit, and images that reflect your personal or professional goals … basically anything you want for yourself or in your life - as long as it represents something meaningful and important to you. 4. Once you’re happy with your vision board, place it somewhere that you’ll see it every day! So, are you up for living 2017 with INTENTION and creating your vision board this week? If yes, let me know and post a pic of your vision board once it’s complete!
