Be Awesome Challenge - October 2019 - Be Present

Posted by Michele Gaylor on

Be Present and Do Nothing

In October, we continue the "Be Awesome" challenge.

I love monthly challenges and my goal is to totally switch things up every month so no boredom is involved.

This month I've decided that I need to learn how to slow down..... Things have been so busy the past month and a half that I find it hard to just sit and "be". 

The challenge for this month is to just be present. I plan to do this by spending at least 5 minutes a day doing absolutely nothing. 

I know this doesn't sound like very much time but I have discovered that I'm always busy.... always working, always reading, always planning, always cooking, always cleaning, always communicating, etc. So, for at lease 5 minutes each day I'm going to just sit and DO NOTHING!

Join me on this challenge and let's see if we can still our hands and minds for just a little time each day.

Here's a Taoist take on doing nothing:


I've created a monthly planner sheet to help you document your progress each day. You simply need to add it to your cart and check out for FREE. The ZIP file contains a OneNote page and PDF sheet. You can add this to your OneNote planner or print out the PDF and add it to your paper planner.





Feel free to post your progress on Instagram with the hashtag: #beawesomechallenge - You can also tag me if you like:

I will be doing a mid-month and end of month check in to see how I'm personally keeping up with the challenge. This check in will only be available to my members so you may want to consider supporting the shop and signing up if you want my updates! (Members also get HUGE discounts in the shop!)

*This challenge is inspired by a book I am currently following along called "100 Life Challenges". You can get a copy for yourself on Amazon.
