21 Day Challenge starts soon
Lyttelton Primary students and general community will take on a new challenge this spring. Starting 30th October, they will commit to changing one behaviour for the good of the environment and their own health and wellbeing.
Run as "Spring Festival of Change" in 2016, the 21 Day Challenge recognises that most people are aware of and motivated to make changes which benefit the planet, but they are just too busy with life to get into the habit. Making a (public) commitment to stick to something for 21 days means there is a very good change they will create a lifelong good habit.
The challenge isn't supposed to be an exercise in extreme discipline or something out of your "tood hard basket." Make it something fun and creative, which you've been thinking about already and you can share with family or friends.
People have already made commitments to
- speak te reo at least once a day for 21 days
- write down something they are grateful for every day for 21 days
- follow the climate diet for 21 days
Last year, challenges included
- walking in nature every day for 21 days
- reducing car use over 21 days
- reducing food waste for 21 days
- eating only local food (grown with 100km of Lyttelton) for 21 days
