FEB. 4 - 24: The benefits of stretching go beyond a warm up and cool down. Stretching releases tensions caused by stress, while increasing oxygen for better brain function. Stretching will not only improve blood flow for better healing after injury, but also prevent injury. Take a few minutes to stretch daily and improve your mental and physical health.
PUT PLAY IN YOUR DAY
APR. 1 - 21: Children are great at playing and aren’t the only ones that benefit from it. Playing boosts creative energy and creates new brain connections. This can help improve productivity and problem solving skills. Tap into your inner-child, grab a friend and reap the benefits of “Play.”
JUN 3 - 23: More often than not, home-cooked meals are healthier than pre-packaged food or eating at a restaurant. With home-cooked meals, you can control what goes into them and save money. Try something new using different ingredients, various methods of cooking, or a new recipe!
UNWIND YOUR MIND
AUG. 5 - 25: Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment – seemingly simple, but more difficult than you may think! Throughout this challenge, you will dedicate time to be present through a variety of activities. This helps improve focus, reduce stress, and live in the moment.
MY MONEY MATTERS
OCT. 7 - 27: Money matters can be stressful. Financial success requires a constant effort of small steps to make lucrative progress. Knowing your spending habits provides the opportunity to make small adjustments to increase your savings and investments. Your money matters, and monetary awareness can lead to your financial success.
JINGLE ALL THE WEIGH
NOV. 27 - JAN. 6, 2020: This holiday season, the only thing that should be “stuffed” is the turkey! The average American gains 1 to 5 pounds during the holidays and most never lose those extra pounds. This year, maintain or lose weight over the holidays by being mindful of your food, activity and stress.
