At the start of October, we asked five Daily Muse writers to set a goal and stick to it as part of our first-ever 30-Day Challenge .
Now, it's the end of the month—and all five writers survived! They faced their fears, talked to strangers, brought their lunch every day, meditated, and explored new cities—and they shared their experiences with us all month long. And today, we're bringing you a wrap-up of how they fared and what they learned.

Every day this month, Lauren did one thing that scared her. In final week, she went for the gold: bungee jumping.
Even when you live in a big city, it’s easy to get stuck in your own little world, so Megan made it her goal to talk to strangers every day. It wasn't easy, but it was definitely hilarious, and her final week was no exception.
Challenge #3: Bring My Lunch to Work
Angeline challenged herself to bring her lunch to work every day—a task, as she found, that doesn't quite come naturally to her. But at the end of the month, she realized the big benefits of sticking to her plan.
