10 Challenges - Try one, for Just one day!
Mobile Phones and Health
1. Can you live without your mobile phone for just one day?
Mobile phones use microwave radiation to communicate. Left Picture – thermographic image of the head with no exposure to harmful mobile phone radiation. Right Picture – Image of the head after a 15 minute phone call. Yellow and red areas indicate thermal (heating) effects that can cause negative health effects.
Benefit: Give your brain cells a break from radiation.
2. Can you go without judging someone or situations for just one day?
When you are constantly evaluating and analysing, you create a lot of turbulence in your internal dialogue. Non-judgement creates silence in your mind.
Benefit: Your mind is a quieter. A quiet mind is a very powerful and creative tool.
3. Can you live without your TV for just one day?
With Satellite now, we have 101 channels. It can be difficult to pull yourself away from the Telly. (Sometimes, I wish I had a multi-screen so I could watch 5 channels at the same time) News, Films, talkshows, Soaps, music videos, sports etc…
Benefit: You shut out all the negative / bad news and you are also able to use your time more productively.
4. Can you eat only fruits for just one day?
Fruit is good for you (particularly organic fruit) and it reduces the risk of various diseases.
Benefit: Apart from helping you lose weight it will detoxify your system and you will look radiant.
5. Can you go without swearing for just one day?
This is hard particularly if you’re a driver, but just let it go. Don’t let anyone get on your nerves.
Benefit: You don’t get agitated and you keep your karma circle positive.
6. Can you go without wearing make-up for just one day?
(probably weekends or when you are not going to work)
Benefit: Allows your skin to breathe.
7. Can you do without your car for just one day?
A lot of kids live within walking distance of their schools but parents still drive them to and fro. This is where Obesity starts in some children. OK, you want to ensure their safety - then, how about walking with them?
Benefit: Less Pollution in the air. Good exercise for you and the kids.
8. Can you go without smoking for just one day?
Whats in a cigarette? Acetone – found in nail removers, Ammonia – found in cleaning fluids, Arsenic – a poison used in insecticides, Formaldehyde – used to preserve dead bodies, Cadmium – a metal used in batteries, Tar and carbon monoxide etc.
Benefit: Need I say?
9. Can you go without getting angry for just one day?
Whatever anyone does to upset you, just react calmly. Easier said than done but just smile at them, even though you might want to give them a piece of your mind. I’ve discovered that if someone annoys you first thing in the morning, it could just put you in a foul mood for the rest of the day – if you let it. So stay Cool, Calm and Collected.
Benefit: Peaceful and focused mind.
Can I dare You?
- Courage - Can I dare you to do any of these activities?
Have you got the balls to do any of these activities?
10. Can you leave your credit card or should I say “cards” at home for one day?
How about leaving that poor card alone for one day? I have found it useful, leaving my cards at home and just taking a Debit card. Otherwise, I'd come back home with lots of shopping bags.
Benefit: Stops you buying on impulse and obviously saves you money.
Finally, I would have asked if you could go without your computer or laptop for one day but hey, if you did, I wouldn’t get to read the interesting Hubs you publish daily.
