FALL INTO A HEALTHIER REGIMEN: THE 30 DAY CHALLENGE

fall

Join us for a 30 day, 30 minute a day, health challenge meant to inspire an attitude of gratitude!

30 Minute Rule: Take a half hour a day just for yourself.

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” – Eleanor Brownn

Fact:  Life is Hard

No matter how busy you are, I challenge you to take 30 minutes a day just for yourself. Go for a walk, plan a healthy meal or simply relax and recharge.  You’re not being selfish.  You need this time to focus on your own wellbeing!

No matter how hard we wish, there is no such thing as clear weather, calm seas and smooth sailing.  When I don’t take time for myself I go into survival mode (sleep, eat, work, repeat).  When I am mentally and physically drained I find that I stop making time for the things that bring me joy.  With the changing of the season, I’ve been inspired to challenge myself, my coworkers and you to 30 days of self-care.   The best way to make daily self-care a priority is to turn it into a habit! We are what we repeatedly do so why not develop positive habits that empower us and align with our goals. The 30-day challenge is a simple way to challenge ourselves to consistently implement a new habit in our everyday life until it becomes automatic.

Fall is all about beautiful changes and new beginnings. Let’s take the first step together to developing a new habit!   Below are a few tips on taking time for you which will leave you feeling empowered, healthier, and happier.  The list is intended to inspire an attitude of gratitude.

  1. Start with a gratitude journal and be sure to log your 30 minutes a day
  2. Pray
  3. Learn to meditate
  4. Create a vision board
  5. Get moving! Take a walk during your lunch hour or after dinner
