About The Challenge

The four simple science-based actions are as follows:

  1. Three Good Things: At the end of each day, write down three good things that happened that day, including why those things were good
  2. Kindness Day: On one day this week, do as many extra acts of kindness for others as possible (try to do at least 5)
  3. Calm Your Mind: Follow the free Headspace "Take 10" program for ten minutes each day at www.headspace.com
  4. Move Your Body: Do something physically active (and enjoyable!) for at least 10 minutes each day
