24 Things You Could Give Up For Lent 2024

It’s that time of the year again, yes, it’s time for Lent!

What’s Lent?

Lent is a Christian observance celebrating the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting and enduring temptation from satan.

Every year from February 14th to March 28th we celebrate Lent, “a season of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter” by opting to give up or commit to something for 40 days.

For some, it’s strictly 40 days of prayer and fasting.

At this time of year, I pick a few habits that I need to work on or bad habits I need to give up. This year I plan to exercise daily for 40 days straight and not consume any alcohol or fast food. Of course I’ll be spending more time with Jesus, praying as well.

Even if you’re not religious, this time of year could be a time for you to break a bad habit or pick up a good one.

I’ll be giving up alcohol and sugar during this period. Sugar consumption is something that I struggle with so now would be a great time to work on cutting down my sugar consumption.

If you want to participate in Lent this year but aren’t sure what you could give up, here’s a list of things you could give up or practice for Lent 2024:
