EDIT: You can find the November 2018 Happy Diabetic Challenge here.
Type 1 Diabetes is an alienating, depressive, and down-right difficult disease. In order to combat that, I challenge you to become happy while living with diabetes, to change your mindset, to be POSITIVE.
In order to do that, change needs to be put into action. Here’s what the Happy Diabetic Challenge is all about:
Post one picture each day for one week, showing what you are thankful for, happy for, grateful for, etc… related to your life with diabetes. Find the little things that make you happy. It won’t always be easy, but each day will become easier as you’re more aware of your positive mindset.
Tag your photos with: #happydiabeticchallenge
Use any social media outlet that you’d like; I chose Instagram for my first challenge. Don’t worry if you can’t think of what you could possibly post each day, or if you miss a day. Stick with it as best as you can! Before you know it, you’ll be the most positive person around (diabetes or not)!
If you have any questions, let me know!
Are you in?
p.s.s. I changed the length of the challenge to one week instead of the original 100 days, but do as many days as you’d like (the more the better)!
