For our latest monthly challenge, we're asking you to get healthy, from your feet to your teeth to your brain.
Welcome to The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD). Each month, we challenge our community members to do something that will improve the world around us—and our own lives. The challenge for October? To get healthy. In an effort to help us all rise to the occasion, we're going to assign one small task every day. Each morning, we will post the challenge on GOOD.is and Twitter, along with a testimonial from someone on the GOOD team who's already completed it. We invite you to complete all 30 mini-challenges with us! Today, we challenge you to:
Wear something that makes you feel confident.
Before living up to this challenge I reflected on the last decade and what I would have done back in the day.
When I was a teenager, I wore t-shirts with aggressive statements. Back then, a shirt with an attitude meant you were cool and hard-core.
When I was in my early 20s and feeling self-conscious about being short, I wore black monster boots with a 5-inch platforms.
But in my mid-20s, what's the fashionable ingredient to personal confidence? Well, honestly, I'm not really sure. Or perhaps I don't really need it. In the last year I remember dressing myself in collared shirts, pants, and ties to meetings where I would be the only female. But closer to the present day, the only wearable that actually provides an extra kick of bravery or power is a good ol' bandana. And tying it across the forehead on hikes just so I can feel like Rambo. I'm not kidding.
Thinking about this challenge was really amazing. It was nice to realize at this point of your life, you're emotionally and socially healthy enough that a brand or label no longer cuts it (like how we believed it did in high school). You can be the shit without wearing that shit.
