Instagram Mindful May Challenge May 4 – 24, 2015

Spiritually Fit Yoga Mindful May Challenge 2015
Spiritually Fit Yoga Mindful May Challenge 2015
It can take 21 days to make a new habit or break an old habit so in light of the popular 21 day challenges, I am hosting a Mindful May Challenge. Rather than dictating a yoga pose a day or a list of foods to eliminate, instead I’m suggesting that YOU CHOOSE what life changes or behaviors you hope to invite into your life. What would you like to change in your life to awaken to a brighter, happier, lighter YOU?

MAKE A DECLARATION
On Day One, post your first pic and make your declaration “I will practice yoga 20 minutes every day”, “I will eat whole foods every day”, “I commit to eating gluten-free every day”, “I commit to telling a joke every day.” You get the idea. Commit to one or more behaviors, declare them to the cybersphere on instagram, then continue to post your progress daily.

FEATURED PARTICIPANTS DAILY
Every day I will feature one of you by reposting your instagram photo. Just tag your posts with @SpirituallyFitYoga and #SFYMindfulMay. Support the other participants and searching on the “SFYMindfulMay hashtag to see what others are being mindful about this month.

SPREAD THE LOVE…YES,  TO YOURSELF TOO!
Support each other by liking posts and leaving supportive comments. And, be truly mindful approaching this challenge with that open-minded observer mind. No self-criticism, judgment, or guilt trips allowed! Skip a day? So what! Just notice it…let yourself learn something about yourself, and continue on your merry way!

IS THERE A PRIZE?
On the last day a participant will be randomly chosen and will receive a $25 gift card from amazon.com. Yippee!

I look forward to your instagram posts and congratulations for participating in this challenge!
