6 Creative Things To Give Up For Lent
If you're out of ideas when it comes to making a Lenten sacrifice, search no more. We've got six creative ideas for what to give up for Lent.
- Hot Showers
- Cream and sugar (coffee is common to give up, but giving up your coffee-additions are a little different)
- Hitting the snooze button
- Banishing the phone when you get home from work
- Throw away 40 things for 40 days
If you believe in the spiritual gain that goes along with giving something up, you should make whatever you choose to sacrifice be something you'll actually miss.
Sacrifice is a practice in self-discipline, so whatever you are choosing to go without should be hard for you to do. It's not much of a sacrifice to say I'll give up pickles if I'd never eat one to begin with.
You don't have to be religious to see the value in practicing self-discipline; according to experts, practicing self-discipline increases confidence, self esteem and inner strength, which eventually leads to happiness and more satisfaction.
