January 2020 Challenge

6 Weeks, 7 Habits, 1 Better You

(Starts January 18th)

What is the Whole Life Challenge?

The Whole Life Challenge is a 6-week lifestyle journey, dedicated to improving your health, fitness, and overall well-being — one habit at a time.

How it Works

Each day for the duration of the 6-week Challenge, you'll get points for completing each of the 7 Daily Habits.

The 7 Daily Habits work together to create an effect in your life that’s hard to overstate — after a few weeks, you’ll feel rested, energetic, present, strong, healthy (and perhaps even happier).

Even better, you’ll have a base knowledge about health and wellness that will last long after the Challenge ends, giving you the tools you need to build a healthier lifestyle for years to come.

Gameplay

You can play the Whole Life Challenge by yourself or on a team with friends, family or co-workers and you’ll climb the scoreboard as you make progress.

ENTERING YOUR SCORE IS SUPER SIMPLE

What You Should Eat

| Nutrition | No Comments
One of the most confusing things we face in the modern world is what to eat. Michael Pollan wrote a whole book about it called "The Omnivores Dilemma." We have not only so much food, but information at our fingertips that it can be a difficult challenge to feel like we’re making the best choice for ourselves. The most important thing to remember when experimenting with the best way to eat for you is not to fall for the propaganda. Many…

“Hold the Line!”

| Self-Improvement | No Comments
To be totally honest with you, whenever I think about this topic, I get fired up. It triggers something in my brain related to toughness — mental toughness, physical toughness, emotional toughness. It reminds me of the scenes from "Braveheart" where William Wallace is rallying his troops. He has his war paint on, and his rag-tag guerilla army made up of Scottish farmers with little to no training is facing the full might of the English army. When they're lined…

The Vicious Sugar Cycle (And How To Break It)

| Nutrition | No Comments
Sugar in your body Sugar is energy. When you eat it, you can use some immediately, but in most cases, your body will need to store some of it for use later, either when you’re not eating or when your activity level increases. You’ll find sugar in some form in all of the carbs you eat, whether it’s white table sugar or kale. The important differences are in dose and speed of delivery. White sugar is 100% sucrose—a mix between…

Expectations vs. Agreements: What’s the Difference, and How Can it Improve Your Life?

| Well-Being Practices | No Comments
Today I'm going to discuss a distinction I like to make between two words — "expectation" and "agreement" — and how it relates to your journey toward a better life. First, let’s talk about expectations. An expectation is when you have a strong belief that something will happen. Expectation lives inside of you, and it’s based on your view of the world and your life experiences. The way things have happened in the past enables you to make certain assumptions…

Why All Fat Is Not Created Equal: A Lesson on MCTs, Energy, and Fat Storage

| Nutrition | No Comments
The foods you eat can generally be categorized as building blocks or fuel—they help to continually rebuild the cells that make up your body, they’re used in important physiological processes, or they are stored as energy. This goes not only for protein, carbohydrates and fat, but also cholesterol, vitamins and minerals.  There are so many reasons that each of these elements is important, and today we are going to talk about fats as energy—how it’s stored and how it’s used.…

How to Use Your “Golden Hour” to Create the Life You Want

| Well-Being Practices | No Comments
If you’re participating in the Whole Life Challenge, you’ve at least accepted the idea that self-care through the practice of daily habits is important, right? The question that plagues everyone is this: How do I get it all in? In today’s day and age, it's very challenging to get time alone that you’re in total control of — time during which you’re focused, undistracted and paying attention to the things that are important to you. Consider what is constantly tugging…
