Ready, Get Set, Go!

16 Jan

Welcome to Bananas for Yoga and Yogurt’s first Wellness Challenge Wednesday!

Are you in?

One night isn’t much time to prep, but I’m hoping that an adrenaline rush will kick in for everyone that reads this post!

Here’s how it works:

Wellness Challenge Wednesday encourages participants to engage in at least one healthy behavior tomorrow. A healthy behavior doesn’t necessarily have to be fitness or diet related.

A few examples outside of fitness and diet include:

  • Reading a book instead of watching TV
  • Calling a friend
  • Venting
  • Trying or learning something new
  • Making time for relaxation
  • Accepting  the views of others

I know when I first think of the word wellness, I immediately think of working out or eating fruits and vegetables, but wellness involves so much more. Being social, happy with our careers, taking care of ourselves, and continuing to learn and share our talents with others are a part of wellness too.

Tomorrow, I encourage you to treat your body like a temple in some shape or form, whether it’s adding carrots to your lunch in place of chips or closing your eyes for 5 minutes to de-stress. I look forward to hearing your responses. I will be sharing mine tomorrow. Please feel free to post a comment on this post or on tomorrow’s. Good luck!

Ready, Get Set, Go!

    i love the message of treating your body like a temple, I will have to think what to do. I think it may be a little extra stretching at night

      I love that message too. There’s a quote by Jim Rohn that I like that reads: “Treat your body like a temple, not a woodshed. The mind and the body work together. Your body needs to be a good support system for the mind and the spirit. If you take good care of it, your body can take you wherever you want to go, with the power and the strength and energy and vitality you will need to get there.”

      Extra stretching is a good one!

    This is such a great concept. Stress is such a major part of being an American, unfortunately. So many health issues, including obesity, can be traced back to come form of stress.

      It is unfortunate.What’s wonderful is that there are so many outlets such as exercise that help people cope with stress.
