If you haven’t joined eM Life’s annual 1% Challenge, there’s still time! You can register anytime until January 31 to participate in the challenge and earn rewards* such as a Fitbit, Paromi Tea, one-on-one mindfulness mentoring and more.
Additionally, this year you’ll have the opportunity to create and share your purpose with the world while impacting even more lives — and earning double the mindfulness minutes! — with Vibe Tribes.
How to Participate in the 1% Challenge
All you need is 14 minutes — that’s just 1% of your day — to experience the benefits of mindfulness while making a positive impact in the world. We challenge you to develop a consistent mindfulness practice over the course of 30 days by participating in any of eM Life’s live or on-demand content.
In order to begin simply register on the 1% Challenge page. To participate, browse our available sessions and complete your first day by participating in 14 minutes of mindfulness, such as a Mindful Daily, guided practice, Ask A Teacher session, Applied Program and more.
Just make sure to complete 14 full minutes to count as your first day, which you can keep track of on a calendar that appears on your eM Life dashboard. You’ll have 30 days from your first day of activity after you register to complete the challenge, earn rewards and make an impact. You can earn cumulative rewards by completing 10, 20 and all 30 days of the Challenge.
New This Year: Double Your Impact with Vibe Tribes
This year, eM Life is launching its newest initiative, Vibe Tribes alongside the 1% Challenge. As you register for the 1% Challenge, you’ll be prompted to either join or create a Tribe and share a deeper purpose. Each Vibe Tribe supports a specific charity such as Mental Health America, Veteran’s Path, Books for Africa and more.
When you participate in the 1% Challenge, we’ll double your minutes of mindfulness you earn each day – for example, when you participate in a 14-minute session, we’ll match those minutes, for a total of 28. Your minutes will be reflected in your Vibe Tribe and your account each day you participate. And once the Challenge is over, you’ll be able to continue to make an impact all year round with Vibe Tribes!
The Benefits of Practicing Mindfulness
Mindfulness is about being aware of the present moment without judgment. Mindfulness practice helps you develop the skills to make every moment matter with greater focus, creativity and purposeful decisions. Other benefits of mindfulness include:
- Reduced blood pressure
- Improved sleep
- Increased focus
- Enhanced self-compassion
- Improved productivity
By participating in this year’s 1% challenge, you’re not only doing something good for you, but others as well. We hope you’ll join us starting January 6!
