If you are a TikTok enthusiast, you’ve probably seen people doing the 75 Soft and 75 Hard Challenge. However, many of these viral videos do not explain the challenge. These challenges are designed to help people feel better and more confident and they claim to improve mental and physical health. Both challenges last 75 days and involve completing a list of mandatory activities daily. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about the 75 Soft and 75 Hard Challenge so you can decide if it is for you.

Soft 75 Challenge
We have great news if the 75 Hard Challenge seems like a bit much. A more accessible version of this style challenge is available and far more accessible for most people. While the benefits are identical, the daily time commitment is less, especially concerning exercise.
What is the 75 Day Soft Challenge?
The original 75 Hard Challenge, as presented, comes from a professional in the supplement community and has very high standards. By comparison, the 75 Soft Challenge is TikTok’s modified response to this idea. When you work toward this challenge, the rules are a bit laxer and simpler to accomplish.
75 Soft Challenge Rules
The 75 Soft Challenge has fewer rules to follow and lasts 75 days or about 2.5 months. More importantly, the goal of this version of the challenge is more manageable, and the goal is to attain consistency rather than perfect adherence to the standards. However, it would be best if you tried to keep to the rules daily. Here’s what you need to do.
- Eat healthily
- Drink alcohol only at social events and celebrations
- Drink 3 liters of water every day
- Read 10 pages of any book daily
- Exercise for 45 minutes daily with one day of active recovery
The 75 soft challenge printable (free) lists the rules in a PDF document and has space to track your progress and keep you accountable. It includes a daily checklist with the rules for 75 days.

Recommendations and Tips for the 75 Soft Challenge
You should approach the 75 Soft Challenge the same as 75 Hard. Focus, set alarms, and stick to it. However, missing one event for this challenge doesn’t necessarily mean you need to do a full reset. Besides those offered above, our best recommendation for this challenge is to create a checklist-style chart. Mark off each activity as you complete it, and take a moment to congratulate yourself on what you’ve achieved.
Pro Tip: You can still do a restart if you miss an activity, but instead, you may want to put a low cap on how many misses you can have before restarting. For example, three misses would be reasonable and help you maintain accountability while still having more leeway.
Is There a 75 Medium Challenge?
There is a 75 Medium Challenge. Like the other two versions of the 75 Challenge, this runs for 75 days and has a set list of activities you must perform daily. Here are the rules for that challenge if you are looking for a middle ground between these two options.
- Choose and follow a diet. Like the 75 Hard Challenge, the diet is not pre-chosen for you. Instead, you should select a diet that works for you.
- Drink half a gallon of water daily.
- No alcohol or cheat meals allowed
- Take a daily progress picture
- Do 1 workout for 45 minutes
- Read 5 pages. These do not have to be inspirational or nonfiction. Any 5 pages will do.
The 75 Challenges aren’t suitable for everyone, but most people will find that, between the 75 Soft Challenge and its two more rigorous counterparts, there is a good fit for them. By tackling an extended process like this, you can help yourself in numerous ways. Reading activates your brain, while diet and exercise help your body, all of which can lead to better overall health. Moreover, setting goals and sticking to them helps put you in a positive mental space. Since all the actions recommended are forms of self-care, it can increase awareness of your physical and psychological needs and capabilities. Finally, the sense of accomplishment combined with increased well-being helps people who struggle with self-worth.
