Lent: The perfect opportunity to break a bad habit and start an awesome one

I’m not a religious person and I never used to do the whole Lent thing. But a few years ago, Pete and I used Lent as an excuse to bet on who could last longer without their favourite food and I lost miserably.

The year after, we decided to be kinder to each other and instead of depriving ourselves to see who would lose first, we challenged each other to commit to a daily practice that we hoped would help our relationship to deepen and grow.

I’m not going to lie to you…the challenge wasn’t easy and we almost broke up during the process. But we came out of it knowing each other better and feeling stronger as a couple.

Since this experience, Lent has taken on a completely new meaning in my life. It went from being a boring 40 day-period that I associated with deprivation, to being a valuable time that I use to challenge myself to grow in some way. Now, I look forward to Lent, and I use it to understand myself better and to enrich my experiences with others.

I hope this video inspires you to use the next 40 days to boost your quality of life in whichever way you choose.

With love,

Emma Hogg, Founder of A Life I Choose

Hi! I'm Emma. I’m a psychotherapist who lives, breathes and eats the science of joyfulness, wellness and achievement. All the work I do is fuelled by my deep wish to belong to a world where people actively choose their lives! A person without choice is an unhappy individual. A person who passionately and resiliently lives their purpose experiences joy and fulfilment daily. If you’re like me and you see that the more people are consciously engaging in life, the happier our world will be, then we need you to be a beacon of this message by living it! My blog is one of my ways of creating dialogue with you, so that together, we can have a greater impact on our world. x

How do you feel? x
