Hot topics -
It was great to read about things you've been able to do with your extra time and money in your gamble-free life! This month this has included
- Go on holidays
- Buy new clothes
- Sleep well, without stress
- Mental space to concentrate on other projects & work
- Time with family/children
It's understandable to experience some anxiety in the lead up to reaching goals such as the 100 day challenge. As touched on in the About the 100 day challenge post, it's a great idea to congratulate yourself on your achievement, reflect on what worked for you, and set your next goal.
Cazza has been a perfect example of this in her 100 days and repeat thread, - she has set herself the goal of another hundred days, and to include focusing on healthy eating during this time too.
