1. Reading Challenge
Do you love books? If one of your new year's resolutions is to read more, reading challenge (also known as book challenge) is something that you need to try. You can set a specific number of books to be read each month or the entire year. Alternatively, pick any reading challenge from the internet with certain lists to be completed. By doing this, you will be able to broaden your reading horizons and not sticking to one genre of your liking only. So, find your favourite spot, settle in with your comfy pyjama or sleepwear and start reading now.
2. Money Challenge
Taking a money saving challenge is a great way to save some extra cash apart from training yourself to be wiser with your money. There are various types of money challenge out there: - 365 days money challenge, 52 weeks and even RM5 money challenge (each time you have RM5 in your possession, set it aside as savings in jar or your piggy bank instead of using it). Ask your family members or your best friends to save right along with you. From time to time, share the progress with each other.
3. Photo Challenge
A picture is worth a thousand words. If you are the type of person who loves to cherish memories with pictures, then photo challenge is your thing. You can opt for a simple photography challenge such as ‘A Photo a Day Challenge’ or ‘Can't Miss Photos to Take Each Month’. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an expert, just push yourself further in your photographic journey. You can also form a group and compete with each other based on the list that you choose.
4. Writing Challenge
If you love to write and own a blog, completing a writing challenge should be as easy as ABC. You can try any writing challenge (with topics or lists of your preference) available and express yourself with words. At least you have some ideas on what to publish as a new entry in your blog. Entice your readers as well as fellow blogger friends to join the writing challenge too.
Not into blog but prefer to keep a journal? Then, you should try journal challenge. It is more or less the same. Look for journaling ideas and prompts that could inspire you to start creating interesting journal entries.
5. Drawing or Doodling Challenge
Art challenge is fun too. There are various art challenges, sketching and even doodling challenges. Put your imagination to work. Heighten your creativity and sharpen your drawing skills as the more you draw, the better you will become at it. You can also get the opportunity to know other people who share the same interests with you. Another plus point, it could be a kind of therapy to help you relax.
All the above mentioned challenges are fun and definitely intriguing to be tried. The best part is you do not necessarily need to incur a lot of money to carry it out. Simply log on to the internet and search for these challenges. Just choose one that you like and enjoy yourself while completing it.
