We're back with another edition of our weekly XPT Challenge and this week Gabby invites us to enjoy a good book or podcast for at least an hour a day. Rather than indulging in that guilty pleasure like binging Netflix or maybe even having a cocktail or two on a weeknight (see previous week's Challenge, which is a no-no), Gabby challenges us to educate ourselves and expand our horizons by dedicating a solid hour to be interested and vital in all of the things life has to offer. Learn from others and take in information that will ultimately make you a better person and more engaged in life.
Watch the clip below for Gabby's full challenge and also you can see a list of Gabby's favorite books and podcasts in case you're looking for some direction in your choices for this week's challenge. Good luck and enjoy!
