What is healthy to you?

We can help with that.

It's a 6-week health & well-being game

Playing for points in each of the 7 Daily Habits: nutrition, exercise, mobility, sleep, hydration, well-being and reflection.

It's not about earning a perfect score every day

(But that's not against the rules!) It's about having the courage to start and the willingness to change.

While we're at it, everything is better with friends!

Team up with your community, hold each other accountable for personal goals, and build bonds around well-being that last long after the Challenge ends.

The 7 Daily Habits

Don’t try to fit health and wellness into your life. Fit your life into the context of health and wellness.

If you're new to the fitness world, you may not have heard of DOMS before. But chances are decent that you will experience it firsthand at some point in your health and wellness journey.

The 10 Thought Habits of People with High Self-Worth

| Self-Improvement | 2 Comments
Self-worth is self-love. It means being on your own team. It means giving yourself the same respect, dignity, and understanding you want for your loved ones. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? The consequences of low self-worth can be huge. Depression, risky behaviors, the willingness to tolerate abusive treatment, and a nagging sense of failure to reach your own potential are all signs of it. Indeed, low self-worth is often the cause — not the effect — of hardships in your life, whether they are financial,…

| Exercise and Workouts | No Comments
Training is simple. We make it far more complex than it really needs to be. Lift more weight — either by performing a higher volume (sets x reps) or by increasing intensity (lifting a heavier weight) — and you’ll improve. However, there are some exercises that should be considered your main courses and others that don’t even rate a mention on the kids’ menu. Much of how training is viewed today still stems from years of bodybuilding-dominated fitness media. Bodybuilders…

Why You Need to Put Yourself First and How to Do It

| Self-Improvement | One Comment
Before I had my daughter in 2005, at age 32, I spent my time boxing, surfing, traveling the world as part of my job with a tour operator, and fixing up a dilapidated beach house with my husband. I had lots of fun, but spent very little time doing things for other people. I made time for my husband, my family, and my friends, but I was mostly able to do what I wanted, when I wanted. Then, we had…
