FASTING IS VERY PERSONAL. SOME PEOPLE CAN GO A DAY WITHOUT FOOD WHILE OTHERS CAN ONLY GO TWO HOURS.
Here’s a guide we created to help you take part in a way that is meaningful to you. We also created the Little Book Of Less to to give you a way to keep track of your good deeds, and to make it real, to you and to someone else.
Not all fasts are food fasts. Taking a day, a week, or a month off from driving is good for you, good for the environment, and good for the wallet.
Take the money not spent on gas and parking and give it away.
bike, walk, run, bus, train, or swim. How you fast is up to you!
Not all fasts involve missing meals—sometimes you can just remove part of the meal. Take the plunge by removing meat from your diet for a day, for a week, or even for a month.
Take the money not spent on beef, chicken and fish and give it away.
lentils, greens, beans (veggie chili anyone?), whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Not all fasts are fun. Sometimes, you gotta go without something you love like beer, wine, coffee and smokes. The good news is, this can really lighten the financial load.
Take the money not spent on the extra in your life and give it away.
water, juice, club soda with citrus, tonic without the gin, tooth picks.
Not all fasts are epic. Going without one meal is easy and can provide an opportunity to focus on something else important.
Take the money not spent on breakfast, lunch, or dinner and give it away.
read a book, go for a walk, take a nap, meditate, call your mom (it’s probably been a while), run an errand.
Not all fasts are crazy. This one is. Work your way up to it and go a whole day on water alone. Use your meal times to think about those who do this fast all the time simply because they have no food.
Take the money not spent on food and give it away.
Not all fasts fit inside a nice tidy package. If you think outside the box, design a fast of your own. Make it personal. Make it meaningful. Make it work. No one knows you like you.
Take the money not spent and give it away.
the sky’s the limit!
