ACT 98 - JUMP OUT OF A PLANE
If you’ve never skydived, the experience of free falling toward the Earth for 1 minute will definitely change your world.
Our longtime friend and acai lover@bobburnquist helped inspire us to share this act because whether he’s jumping out of a plane or flying through the sky on his skateboard, he is as comfortable in the air as he is on the ground.
Today there are sky dive centers all over the world and what may have seemed like absolute lunacy in the past is now safer than getting in your car and driving down the freeway.
Who’s done it and where? Who wants to? Tag us with #100startswith1 and share your experience.
ACT 97: MAKE YOUR OWN ESSENTIAL OIL
If you’ve ever experienced the power of essential oils you know they will change your world.
They can have a positive influence on your mental, physical and spiritual health… And did you know how easy it is to make some of them in your own home?
For today’s act we’re giving you a simple recipe that everyone probably could use👉🏽Peppermint...hint: breath freshener 🍃 🔹Crush/muddle fresh peppermint leaves in a glass jar with a tight lid.
🔹Cover the leaves with olive or grapeseed oil. Close the jar and shake.
🔹Store for three days. Strain into a bowl and discard the leaves.
🔹Pack the jar with fresh leaves, pour the oil back in the jar and cover with fresh oil. 🔹🔹Repeat until you have the desired amount.
🔸Tip #1: Twenty drops of the oil should be diluted with 1.5 ounces of another oil (coconut or almond, for example) before using it topically, and with water (1 cup per five to 10 drops of oil) for mouthwash.
🔸Tip #2: Never put #essentialoils directly on your skin, they can burn.

CT 93- EXPERIENCE CARNAVAL
Brazilian #Carnaval is world famous for good reason. It’s really the greatest show on Earth and you don’t just watch the show, you are part of it.
It’s considered the largest annual art festival on the planet and the six-day celebration (!) literally stops the entire country and draws more than 5 million people form all over the world to the streets, fueled by rhythms, costumes and folklore.
Whether you go to Rio, Salvador, Sao Paulo or Olinda (the top 4 in our book), you’re guaranteed to have the more fun than you could possibly imagine.
So who’s in? 🎉 But first, can you #samba? ;) #100StartsWith1
ACT 92 – TAKE A SOLO TRIP
Today we’re challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and get to know you better by taking a solo trip.
Embarking on a solo journey without distractions from friends or family takes a little courage but the payoff is priceless.
Rail through Europe, motorbike around New Zealand, go surfing in Mexico, or just hop in the car and hit the road in any direction.
You’ll meet people you never would have met. You’ll have time alone to focus on what your soul needs, whether that be reading, writing, or just plain chilling out and unwinding. It’s a great opportunity to reflect, contemplate and dream. And while it may seem lonely at first, once you get comfortable with yourself a profound sense of empowerment and happiness will take over as your soul echoes something like, ah... there I am!
ACT 91 – CONSULT A NATUROPATH
We believe a second opinion matters when it comes to our health. That’s why today we’re challenging you to seek a naturopathic doctor.
For thousands of years, cultures around the globe have trusted the power of nature to heal their bodies. With a unique approach that combines ancient wisdom with modern science, naturopathic doctors can give a new perspective to your health concerns.
While western medicine usually aims to fix the symptom, a holistic approach aims to fix the cause, stimulating our body’s healing ability with nutrition and non-toxic therapies like herbal and homeopathic remedies.
We’ve heard lots of amazing stories from people who have found a cure – are you one of them? #100StartsWith1#foodasmedicine (check Naturopath.org to find one near you)
ACT 90 - DO A WATER FAST
Our digestive system is an amazing ecosystem that processes the food we eat into the energy our bodies need. It also creates waste that needs to be eliminated.
Regular #fasting is an essential practice to optimal health because it gives our digestive system a rest so it can do essential repairs and help purge toxins. It can also help prevent manifestation of disease due to the accumulation of these toxins.
Almost all known religious faiths around the world use fasting to improve self-discipline and to enlighten the spirit through purification. If those aren’t good enough reasons, you’ll drop some weight and feel lighter when you fast.😉 Are you up for this and for how many days? 💦 👉🏿Please note if you have a health condition, ask guidance from a medical professional.#100StartsWith1 #Changeyourworld
ACT 89 – TAKE A DIGITAL DETOX
Today’s challenge comes from our CEO, Ryan Black. We are asking you to do something you might not expect from an Instagram post: unplug for 24 hours.
Because we rely on our gadgets so much these days, being “plugged in” all the time has become the standard for most of us.
Taking a #digitaldetox is a great way to put your technology use into perspective and give you a chance to pause, breathe, reflect & find some balance.
Weekends are the perfect opportunity to recalibrate so now is the time!
If you want to take this challenge even further, there’s some great tech-retreats around the country. Look them up!
We’re sure this will change your world.
