Important Changes to the Whole Life Challenge Nutrition Levels

By

As the Whole Life Challenge continues to grow, we strive to create and maintain a game that is as relevant as possible to you, with the most up-to-date nutrition information we have at our disposal. As a result, we’ve recently made some small changes, both to the philosophies of the levels as well as to what is compliant for each.

Let’s Start with the Goal of Each Level

It’s helpful not to think of one level being more “advanced” or difficult than another.…

Whole Life Challenge: The Synergy of the 7 Habits

By

The 7 Habits represent a special kind of synergy. When you take them on together as a daily practice they yield the kind of results you can’t predict — things that may have previously seemed impossible.

It’s not just that each habit is beneficial in and of itself. It’s that each habit builds on the next and creates something additional, something unattainable unless you explore all the habits.…

NEW Whole Life Challenge Habit: Sleep replaces Supplementation

Why we changed the Habit: Sleep has a profound influence on your overall health and well-being, and deserves a place among our 7 Daily Habits. Supplementation is important, but does not have the same overall impact on your wellness as sleep duration and quality. Therefore, we decided to switch them out, giving Sleep a permanent spot in the Challenge.…

Whole Life Challenge Scoring Change: Every Habit Is Now 5 Points

An Important Whole Life Challenge Scoring Change: Every Habit Is Now Worth 5 Points

In previous Challenges, nutrition was worth 5 points, while other habits were worth 1 or 2 points.

While this makes sense from a practical standpoint (as we wanted you to be able to slip up a bit on nutrition without forfeiting an entire day’s worth of points), it didn’t make sense from an importance standpoint—you likely treated nutrition as more important than the other habits, as the non-food habits were worth fewer points, and therefore had less impact on your overall score if you skipped them.…
