For the next month, we’re focusing on being more mindful, less stressed, and happier overall with the help of Greatist’s Month of Mindfulness.

With summer coming on in full-force, it’s easy to get caught up in the social extravagance that warm weather invites. From BBQ’s to beach parties, outdoor yoga to outdoor happy hours, having a fun-filled schedule is awesome — but it can be equally exhausting.

We want to stay grounded this summer by forming a routine that reminds us to slow down, too. And we’re doing just that on Lift, an app that helps people create habits, set goals, and interact with friends

So join us for a Month of Mindfulness, where we’re working on small tweaks that will make us feel lighter, less stressed, and full of energy. The three habits we’ll be focusing on throughout the month include:

  • Saying “no” to one thing per day
  • Meditating (even if it’s for 5 minutes!)
  • Going to sleep by midnight

Getting started is super easy: Simply sign up for the challenge to gain access to the group (and the app’s new web version!). Then begin tracking your habits; your progress will automatically appear in the groups’ activity feed where you can see how other people are doing, give props, add comments, and more.

The Greatist Team is pumped to be involved and interact with everyone, so join the group today and get ready to work on that habit-making, share your progress while inspiring others, and most importantly — have fun.

Not sure how to use Lift? No sweat. Check out our review and learn how quick n’ easy it is to create habits, log progress, and track your improvements. Download the app to use Lift on-the-go, too!
