Madness Challenge – Sanity Sunday

Madness Challenge - Sanity Sunday
Hello all, welcome back and happy Madness Monday reader!  After reading a brilliant article from Life Hacker about Six 30-Day Challenges to Help You Learn More and Form Lasting Habits, we wanted to come up with a challenge of our own that we really relate with and hopefully you will too.


We don’t know about you, but Sundays to us can sometimes feel like a real drag. You have work the next day, you are still reeling from the last week of work, and the events from the weekend seem to pile on as well.  So, after reading the article, we started crafting the idea of “Sanity Sunday”, a day where you put aside the work, drama, stress and start making a habit of unwinding with ones you love.  What could be better then ending your week on a high note and starting your next week with a spring in your step?


So just like every challenge you need ground rules, don’t worry we’ve gotcha covered with a pretty infographic and for those who like bulleted lists we’ve got your back as well.  Basically, it comes down to a simple list of dos and don’ts.  In the do side, on the left, you will see that we want to encourage you to take on new hobbies, learning experiences, and overall, memories. On the right, you will see a list of no no’s, like work, finances, and problems.


  • Try something new
  • Learn something new
  • Make new memories


  • Talk about / do work
  • Talk about / do finances
  • Talk about  problems


Seems easy enough, eh?  The goal of this challenge is to create new healthful habits and maybe make your Monday suck just a little less.  So give it a solid 30-day try, that’s 5 Sundays, and we’ll be following up in the next couple weeks with more posts.  We have been trying this ourselves here at Madness Labs for the last couple weeks and can see a big lift in our spirits starting the week.  We only hope that you all adopt this a full-heartedly as we have here at Madness Labs.  Please post your experiences, ideas, and comments, as we would love to get / share your feedback.  Have fun, try to get everyone to join the madness, and we’ll see you next week for the routine Madness Monday post!
