Welcome to Day 5 of the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge! Today, we spark inspiration, meaning and joy by cultivating COMMUNITY:
We are experiencing a loneliness epidemic. That’s right, people are feeling lonelier today than ever (and this was before the social distancing in light of coronavirus). Good news, now that we know it, we can do something about it.
CHALLENGE: Identify your “people.” You know, the ones you feel like you can go to in an emergency, when you need a laugh… people who just get you. (If you don’t have your “people” – you’re not alone. See the article noted above. Instead, your challenge is to identify someone you know that you wish was your person + apply the below action to them.)
INSPIRATION: Learning about the loneliness epidemic + how to break out of it and build our own community, was fascinating and empowering. Join my conversation with Radha Agrawal, author of Belong, on Podcast Ep. #98 here.
ACTION: My friend, don’t assume these people know they’re “your people.” Call them and let them know. Don’t text, call. Ask your person to do the IN AWE Challenge, too. Doing this together will be a meaningful experience to build upon.
Share who your person is and how it feels to invite them to take the IN AWE Challenge with you in the comments below or on social media, tagging me + using #inawe. Every day until publication (5/5), I’ll randomly pick one person who does to win a copy of IN AWE to gift to a neighbor, favorite barista or as a random act of kindness (because you’ve already preordered copies for yourself, friends + family, right? :).
My friend, today is your day! Live IN AWE.
Did you know? The 21-Day IN AWE Challenge is inspired by John’s forthcoming book IN AWE. Preorder your copy + follow all the fun behind the scenes at ReadInAwe.com.
