This past week I started The 20 Ripple Challenge. I do most of the things that the challenge required, and daily random acts of kindness sounded great. How can that sound bad? While this is posting on day 8, and it is NOT too late to join. If you are interested in spreading some kindness and giving yourself some love and care, join the movement.
I found the Pause Breathe Reflect movement on the Clubhouse app. I was about ready to delete the app when I discovered The Miracle Morning Room. I was becoming disillusioned with the rooms on Clubhouse, and it was not serving me. This room got me curious and changed my thoughts. This room has expanded my circle of amazing, kind, and incredible humans that are changing the world. One of these people is Michael O’Brien. Michael is the founder of the Pause Breathe Reflect movement. If you do not know his story, I encourage you to check it out.
Here are the details of the challenge:
Dates: June 21 to July 11
- Start your morning with a glass of water or celery juice
- Reach out to someone and express why you’re grateful that they are in your peloton
- Complete one random act of kindness per day
- Move your body for at least twenty minutes per day (from walking to yoga to spin class and beyond)
- Take one Pause Breathe Reflect Mindfulness Break via Clubhouse community or one on your own
- Write out three wins for the day

If you decide the challenge is not for you, I encourage you to think of a way you add joy to someone else today. Can you express love and support for a person that has influenced your life? Find easy ways to donate or ripple goodness into the world. It can be as simple as smiling at a stranger as you walk down the street. You can thank the clerk at the checkout. Put away your phone and connect when you are in a room with others. Give yourself a little love too. Move your body for a few minutes today. Go get a big glass of water and hydrate your body. After the past year, we can all benefit from deeper connections and love for ourselves and others. Go out and inspire. Go out and support. Go out and be the change.
