Jump Start January 2018 schedule

Jump Start January 2018 weekly schedule

Hi there. This is a reminder that a brand new mini Jump Start January challenge will be starting on Monday the first of January, 2018. The theme will be ‘Boost your happiness and wellbeing‘, and I hope you can join us for a free seven-day programme with something new to try every day.

Happiness and wellbeing are quite broad subjects, so the daily mini-challenges will be varied and different too.

Before we get started, you might like to take a few moments to think about what happiness and wellbeing mean to you personally. Everyone is different and you’ll be able to try plenty of new things out, tailoring the days to your individual preferences.

For some people, happiness is a feeling of peace and relaxation, for others it’s joy or contentment, excitement or love. For others still, it can be living with a sense of purpose, following your dreams or meeting a personal goal. What does it mean to you?

Here are some of the fun, interesting and uplifting things that we’re going to be trying out next week – there’s sure to be something there for just about everyone. Give it a try anyway, you might just surprise yourself…


7-Day Jump Start Schedule

Day 1: SELF CARE: Get out into nature.

Day 2: RETRAIN YOUR BRAIN: Complain less, fix more.

Day 3: CONFIDENCE TRICKS: Walk tall, think big.

Day 4: YES TO… : Make your own happiness play fort.

Day 5: AMP IT UP: Something to look forward to.

Day 6: ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT: Take a worry dump.

Day 7: SENSE OF PURPOSE: Choose a value, set a goal.


There will be a choice of things to do each day, so you can tailor it to meet your personal preferences. Most of the activities are completely free, in case you’re broke after Christmas, plus there will be one or two optional extras that are very low cost.

As always, the daily tasks are designed to fit together and they don’t take up too much time. If you miss a day or two, don’t worry, you can always catch up at the weekend.


Who wants to cheer up a cold and rainy first week of January? Join in!
