Day 4: Oftentimes we take for granted the moments we get with the people we love. We know we'll see our kids in an hour after soccer practice. We know we'll see our spouse again after work. We know we'll see our friends every week for that scheduled girls' or guys' night out. We get so used to our routine, and so caught up in our own lives and stresses, that we forget to appreciate the people right in front of us.

Today's #OolaChallenge is whenever you see any of your loved ones today, act really excited to see them (no matter how many times you've seen them that day). Smile, run to the door, give them a hug and don't let go. It'll help us all remember that home is where someone runs to greet you.

Day 3: It's easy to get caught up in our thoughts. We overthink, re-think, over generalize, and jump to conclusions. The patterns of our lives and the world we live in make it easy to do. We wake up thinking, and we have a hard time falling asleep because our minds are running.

So...Today's #OolaChallenge is to pray about something as often as you think about it. This will require us to pray bold prayers. The things that take up so much space in our mind and thoughts usually make for the boldest prayers. Pray about your worries, your stresses, your fears, your questions, your blessings, your loves ones. Nothing is too great for God. Start by simply starting your day with a prayer and ending your day with a prayer. And if you really want to challenge yourself, whenever you find yourself thinking about something, let that be your cue to pray about it. Use today to try and pray about things as much as you think about them.

Day 2: It's easy to see transformations in our bodies. We commit to a fitness plan and in a few weeks our abs are leaner and our biceps are bigger. It's transformation we can measure. By inches, by pounds, through calories and reps. But so often we forget about our mental transformation. We get caught up in comparisons and complaints. We focus on how far we are from our goal instead of how far we've come. Just as energy fuels our fitness, positivity fuels our feelings of self-worth. So today we're going to exercise our bodies AND our minds.

Today's #OolaChallenge is to walk or run for 7 minutes and during those 7 minutes, we want you to come up with 7 things you love about yourself most. This might be tricky. You may have to be disciplined about catching your negative thoughts and turning them into positive ones. But it's important, so even if you have to go a little longer than 7 minutes to get to your 7 things, we hope you follow through.

Day 1: Little things can totally change a day. Your patience, your smile, your appreciation can easily turn someone else's bad day into a better one. Today's #OolaChallenge is to do what we like to call, a Random Act of Oola. Buy flowers and leave them on a random porch, buy a coffee for the car behind you, smile at someone who cuts you off in traffic, do something that will make someone's day a little easier. Let someone wear a smile that you gave them.
