Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. It is also when we begin to do penance for Lent. Penance is an act of religious devotion performed to show sorrow for having committed a sin. We do this to improve our relationship with God and others. The Church suggests remember three practices for Lent: 

Pray - pray more 

Fast- going without food or eating less. It can also mean giving up a certain food or treat. 

Almsgiving- means doing good for others. That can be giving gifts of money or help to others.
