Make 2009 Great: Join the Be a Better Vegan New Year’s Challenge!
I’m excited to announce the Be a Better Vegan New Year’s Challenge! This challenge was inspired by a similar one started by Leo Babauta of ZenHabits
. The Be a Better Vegan Challenge is free, and it’ll help you form a new habit in 30 days, in just 10 minutes a day.
It’s a great way to start the New Year, and to make 2009 a great year. Forming a new habit is better than making a resolution, because if you use effective habit-change principles, the habit will stick with you much longer than the resolution.
