Week 1: Introduction
Many of us set goals at the beginning of each year to be more healthy, to lose weight, to do ____________ (you fill in the blank). So lets work on some of these goals together!
Being healthy isn’t just about eating and exercising, that is why we are using the term “wellness challenge” instead of “health challenge.”
Wellness is the integration of, and the awareness of, the four core needs we all have. Those core needs, which are not optional, include our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being. Throughout this challenge, we will refer to this as P.E.M.S.
Each month we will focus on something different and there will be a different challenge each week. We would also love to hear from you, so please feel free to post how you are doing in the challenge! So let’s begin!
Week 2: Happiness is Contagious
January 8 is National Joygerm Day. Happiness is contagious. So go spread it! There are various ways that you can spread the bug. Smile at strangers. Tell a joke.
See if you can make someone in your life, and someone you don’t know well or at all happy this week. See how many times you can do it this week!
