JULY: “GOOD RECEPTION”

No television.

The “Good Reception” Mini Challenge invites you to limit TV watching and instead tune into yourself for the next 31 days. For the full experience, turn off your TV for 31 consecutive days. If that’s too extreme for you, limit your TV view to a single program, a certain length of time, or only on weekends. Remember, this is a challenge! You’ll find plenty of free time on your hands – fill it with something you’ve wanted to do for a long time.

Excessive TV watching can lead to obesity, social exclusion, and sleeping difficulties. TV provides an escape from reality to enjoy a fantasy world that’s free from problems. Letting go of this TV “fix” may not be easy at first, but once you find something valuable to do in it’s place, you’ll wonder why you ever spent so much time watching TV before!

After you’ve finished this month’s Mini Challenge check it off on this year-long tracker. Keep track of how many Mini Challenges you complete to be eligible for a prize drawing at the end of the year! You do not need to report completion every month. Just keep track throughout the year and we will send out a reporting link at the end of 2020.
