With each new year at 10 Experience, we aim to challenge our members and ourselves to sharpen our minds, our habits and our lifestyles. To whittle away at a #10exlife.
The Outlier Challenge provides precisely that structure. Like previous challenges, this year’s version takes a fresh approach to the general blueprint we know to be effective. So, it’s our hope to bridge the gap between 2020 and 2021 by building upon the words printed on the most recent 10 Experience hoodie:
Easy choices, hard life.
Hard choices, easy life.
What does this mean? 2020 has been an unpredictable collection of events, where up equals down and inside means out. Normal routines suffered as we tossed, turned, and braced for daily impact. The structure of our day – in particular our healthy routines – suffered as a consequence. This year’s Outlier Challenge centers its design on rebuilding those lost structures. How? By making a ‘hard choice’ to be uncomfortable every day.
If the uncertainty of this year’s pandemic taught us anything, it’s that optimal health offers the best protection from a non discriminative virus. It also acts as a shield defending us against stress, anxiety and the unknown. Be it a viral infection or any other life-threatening situation, sound lifestyle habits – healthy eating, adequate sleep, daily movement, and fellowship with friends and family – can only improve our life.
The 2021 Outlier Challenge offers everything mentioned above. It comes with more purposefully designed rigidity and more intentionally sturdy guidelines. It promises rigor:
- MOVEMENT – specific daily requirements
- NUTRITION – specific nutrition with each meal
- SLEEP – enough
- FELLOWSHIP – encourage accountability with those specifics
Don’t scowl. A marine much tougher that us once quipped, “discipline equals freedom.” We tend to agree. Stick to the rules of the Outlier Challenge and find yourselves liberated from 2020’s long shadow. It’ won’t be easy, but that’s precisely our point. If your 2020 was successful and doesn’t actually resemble ours – a year laced with frustration and self-sabotaging behavior – keep at it! For the rest of us needing motivation to start again or looking for a bridge to cross the COVID chasm, the Outlier Challenge is sure to answer that call.
