About this challenge

As the weather gets warmer and we emerge from hibernation, it feels like the perfect time to regroup and prepare for a fresh start as the seasons begin to change.

Whether you need a reset or a refresh, what's something you're doing to get your life in order? Are you starting to use a bullet journal, or maybe creating a capsule wardrobe? Is there an organization hack that has helped make your life easier? Whatever practice or habits you've put in place to improve your day-to-day, we want to know what your tips and tricks are for organizing your life.

Enter the Spring Forward Challenge by sharing your plans for optimizing your life. Whether it's tidying up your space or using a productivity tool at work, good habits set us up for long-term success. So, let us know how you're improving yourself and your life going into the new season, new and improved!
