30-Day Optimism Challenge
Join us in performing 30 acts of optimism. Sign up to have daily challenges delivered to your inbox.
Here’s how it works
1. Start a new routine
Check your inbox and take a few minutes to work the day’s challenge into your schedule.
2. Be realistic
If you can’t perform the challenge as it’s written, adjust as needed or think up another small, positive act to do instead.
3. Stick with it
Positivity grows when you nurture it. And that’s what this challenge is all about—to demonstrate how simple acts can have a big impact both on your own life and those around you.
396,360 acts of optimism have been pledged
We’ve already performed hundreds of thousands of positive acts together and that’s added up to a huge difference. Help us keep the good mojo going.

I am absolutely taking this challenge! Spent some time on it this morning, and I feel better already! I deleted some things and realized there are things I want to access more often.

I ran into an elderly couple struggling with their purchases and the cart. The gentleman was using a cane and the lady was moving very gingerly. Helped them load and took their cart back to the store. They seemed grateful! My heart was full.

The “Fostering Generosity” challenges are my favorite because they not only help someone else, but they teach my children compassion as they help me complete the task.

Loved this one ❤️. Had such a wonderful conversation with someone I dearly love but who is miles away.
