11/25 - Day One.
Welcome to our newest challenge, friends -- Healthy Habits 2016!
I am excited to share the next four weeks with all of you!
Today we begin the Healthy Habits 2016 Challenge. For 4 weeks (11/25 until 12/23), we will work together to define, refine, and maintain healthy (or healthier) habits that can carry us through the holiday season and into the New Year.
Rather than waiting for some magical day like January 1 to make resolutions and establish new fitness, health or other personal goals and habits, we are going to work on those together now. Every day can be your magical first day. We don't need a calendar to tell us to wait and then start at the New Year. Let's start today.
All you need for this challenge is a willingness to try and an interest in making some changes, additions, tweaks or edits to your current habits.
As with our other challenges, there will be tasks, things to think about, suggestions and other fun activities.
For today, your task is a simple one. Please think about some of your habits, particularly the ones that include your health....physical, mental, emotional. Are there some things that you do that you want to continue and maintain? Are there some habits that you need to tweak and adjust? Are there some habits that you know are not the best for you and maybe it's time to give them up? Or maybe there is something that you would like to become a habit but you're not quite there yet. Take a little of time to reflect on these.
Please consider 2-3 of these habits that you could possibly work on over the next 4 weeks. Perhaps write them down somewhere at home so you can see them as a reminder each day of your goals. The act of writing our goals can be very powerful. It’s up to you if you want to share them or to keep them for yourself.
Today is just about awareness of what we want to do, change, modify and/or maintain.
Invite your friends. The more the merrier. I'm looking forward to sharing this experience with all of you.
Have a fantastic Friday.
Welcome and thank you for visiting this site. I'm happy and grateful to have a place where I can write about fitness and wellness. In addition to blogging about exercise and sharing workouts, I also use this space to tell 200-word stories about the inspiring and amazing people I encounter in this career. I look forward to sharing as many of these journeys as possible, and would love to hear from you if you would like me to tell your story. You can contact me anytime. Thank you so much for your interest and your effort. Think fit...be fit...stay fit! You are stronger than you think. #STYT
