You. Only better.

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.
