January 2020 Challenge

6 Weeks, 7 Habits, 1 Better You

(Starts January 18th)

Introducing the New 6-Week Meal Plan

For the first time ever, we have developed a FULL 6-week meal plan to accompany the Whole Life Challenge. This plan is designed to make not just choosing, but cooking your meals during the Challenge as simple as possible!

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.

Learn About the Habits


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.


Just use the WLC website


The Best Part—
We Don’t expect you to be perfect.

While the Whole Life Challenge provides rules and guidelines for best results, we still want you to experience life. This means you’ll sometimes give up a point or two doing the things you love — and that’s okay. Read the Philosophy of Imperfection.

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?

Consider what is constantly tugging…

Why Your Body Is A Fat-Storing Machine And How You Can Counteract It

| Nutrition | No Comments
Your body is a fat-storing machine–it’s really good at storing fat. There are two main reasons it stores fat so well: To have energy beyond the amount of stored glucose, known as glycogen, you can hold in your muscles and liver (they can only hold so much), and  To help quickly remove sugar from your bloodstream when you eat it. Sugar in your bloodstream is toxic—prolonged exposure to it can damage your heart, your nerves, and your kidneys. And because…

Do you have tight hamstrings? Do you get back pain on a regular basis, for no apparent reason? Do you sit in a chair, behind a desk for hours at a time every day? All of these are indicators that your body has (or is) making modifications to your ligaments, tendons and muscles in order to adapt to the environment you’ve created for it. Without addressing it on a regular basis (10 minutes per day), it will have a long-term…

How to Use the “Minimum Effective Dose” Concept to Get Results

| Health and Wellness | No Comments
You've probably heard the phrase "minimum effective dose" before, usually in the context of how much of a certain prescription you should take to get the job done. Taking too little won't help the problem, but taking too much could cause unwanted side effects. So the minimum effective dose is the ideal amount. But now, think about this in the context of the rest of your life (and the Whole Life Challenge). Wouldn't it make sense to do what's required…
