New Year's
Challenge

Jan 21 - March 3

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.

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

Mobile Mobility: Surf, Stretch, and Strengthen at the Same Time

| Exercise and Workouts | No Comments
Give me social media or give me death. Unfortunately, our social media and mobile tendencies are potentially harmful to our health. For starters, think about the position you normally assume when browsing social media. There’s a good chance your neck is angled down and your shoulders are rounded forward. You are likely slouched in this position for extended periods of time. This positioning would be great if we didn’t have that pesky tower of vertebrate keeping us upright. Alas, we…

Polish the Mirror: How to Achieve Goals Without Hating Yourself

| Self-Improvement | 2 Comments
In my psychotherapy practice, I am prone to borrowing a phrase I initially learned from Eastern philosophy: simple, but not easy. When it comes to human suffering, we often have ideas regarding the alleviation of that suffering that seem to be pretty simple. Ideas like boundaries, assertiveness, self-care, self-compassion, or forgiveness. But when it comes to execution, these strategies all fit into the category of simple, but not easy. This begs the question, “Why is it we cannot simply do…
