NEED A WELLNESS NUDGE?
HERE’S A 14-DAY CHALLENGE JUST FOR YOU!
By Carol Phillips
Taking care of yourself every day doesn’t have to be boring, time-consuming, or expensive! Follow this 14-Day Challenge to see how easy it can be to implement!
Day 1: Start the day with a positive thought. When we focus on the positive, we are more likely to make healthier choices instead of self-defeating ones.
Day 2: Breathe. Notice when you’re stressed, which can cause you to breathe shallowly. Take a deep breath to calm down and restore oxygen to all cells in your body.
Day 3: Sit up straight. Your posture is the core of good physical health. Become aware of all the times you’re slouching or leaning sideways when sitting or standing.
Day 4: Cardiovascular exercise. Your body was designed to move. Get your heart rate up with your favorite activity. The mental and physical benefits are countless!
Day 5: Strength training. Challenge your muscles with an activity to keep muscles and bones strong. Strong muscles burn more calories, even at rest!
Day 6: Balance. Choose an activity that works on your balance to reduce your risk of falls and injuries.
Day 7: Stretch. Discover the areas of your body that are too tight, and stretch to loosen those muscles in order to move properly. Hold each stretch for at least 10 seconds.
Day 8: Nutrition. Forget dieting and depriving yourself. Focus instead on eating more of the healthy foods you love, and prepare a new healthy recipe.
Day 9: Detox your environment. Look at the lists of ingredients of the personal care and cleaning products you use. Are there healthier products (for you and the environment) that you can choose?
Day 10: Meditate. Give your brain a break, even if you spend just one minute reminding your mind to unwind.
Day 11: Quality sleep. Eliminate distractions that get in the way of enjoying a healthy night’s sleep. Discover how many hours of sleep are best for you.
Day 12: Be kind to yourself. Learning to be your own best friend is an important part of bringing a sense of calm and wellbeing to mind and body.
Day 13: Be kind to others. Practice a random act of kindness to make someone else’s day easier. We’re all connected, and your compassionate efforts will come back to you.
Day 14: Have fun! There’s a child in each of us that wants to have fun and laugh. Make time for activities you enjoy while also finding humor in the simplest moments. Lighten up!
After completing the 14-day challenge, continue these good habits by choosing a new focus each day, based on what you discover is needed in your life to remain healthy and happy. End each day by giving yourself kudos for the efforts you’ve made. You’ll finish your day on a positive note and set yourself up for continued success!
