The new year represents a fresh start for many of us.
It is a chance to reflect on all that occurred in the past year and look forward to new learning opportunities and successes in the future.
While many of us were desperately looking forward to the end of 2020, many have also learned that 2021 has come equipped with its own set of challenges.
And that is okay.
As the quote above reads, “Yesterday’s burdens are today’s opportunities.”
And Dancing & Life recognizes the importance of turning turmoil and crisis into opportunity. With their 30 Day New Year New You Challenge, we can reset and get in touch with that light within ourselves.
We can move towards positive change.
I hope that you will follow along throughout the duration of this challenge. And I encourage you to complete each daily task as well and tag @majorleaguemommy on Instagram for a chance to win 3 months of coaching with Saje Flow (a $30,000 value). This post will be updated daily throughout the challenge so you can always check back each day for the latest task.

Share your biggest challenge of 2020 and what you want to change in 2021. Then share one thing you’ve learned during the past week — and tag a friend who needs to hear about it.
UPDATE: We’re a little over a week into the challenge at this point. Now is a good time to reflect. Have you had any wins that you’d like to share? Feel free to leave it in the comments! You can also tag me on Instagram @majorleaguemommy sharing your experience with the challenge.
I’ve been having a lot of fun doing each activity, and have even got my husband and kids in on it a few of the days. I’ll admit, there were a couple of days where I had to play catch-up but that is okay! I know we’re all busy. No biggie. Just dive back in as soon as you can. Even if you can just set aside 10 minutes a day for yourself, that is better than nothing at all. 🙂
Share a video or photo of your breathing techniques to get rid of tension — and tell us how you feel.
Take a video of yourself flipping a coin and deciding on doing something you’re not sure about — heads for option A, tails for option B. Flip the coin and tell us your decision.
Share a brief video of you WINNING and singing “All I Do Is Win Win Win No Matter What” — or any winning song.
Post a short video where you dance without music for 7-10 seconds.
Post a picture or video of yourself walking in the fresh air or giving yourself a self-affirming talk.

Please feel free to submit a video sharing your experience so far with this challenge for a chance to win up to 3 months of coaching with Saje Flow. You can also tag @majorleaguemommy in your social posts showing you completing the day’s task.
Just as a reminder, I am following the challenge right along with you. I have days where I may not get around to completing a task. Some days I have had to double-up (or even triple-up) on activities to catch up. Again, that is okay. Do what you can when you can. This challenge isn’t supposed to be stressful. This is your opportunity to reconnect your mind, body, and spirit to create positive change in your life. Have fun with it. You don’t have to be so serious. 🙂
Write down your outcome for the next 30 days, and why you must do this for yourself. Take a picture of the outcome and share it publicly.
Draw a pyramid on a piece of paper and above it write your goal. Inside the pyramid, write out 3 actionable steps. Take a photo of this and post it.
