How the Whole Life Challenge Can Help You Find “The New Healthy”

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

For many of us, managing our health the way we’re used to is so last year. Literally. 

With everything that’s been going on, it’s natural to feel stressed or overwhelmed (or both). When that happens, the routines we have that keep our health in place can get easily interrupted. I know it, I’ve felt it. It’s happened to me.

And yet there’s no rule that says I can’t figure out a new way. That I can’t roll with what’s happening and adapt.  Because healthy isn’t a fixed set of things. It’s an idea that inspires me to act.

It’s not eating only perfect foods, it’s cutting back a little on sugar and alcohol (tell me you couldn’t use that).

It’s not just working out at the gym, it’s making sure I don’t spend too many hours sitting at a desk or on the couch.

It’s not “doing it all,” it’s doing something that I know will make me feel better, like getting outside for some fresh air (or even just making sure to make my bed).

Healthy is a mindset that we can cultivate with practice. It’s an attitude. It’s caring for our life in small ways, moment by moment. Acknowledging our circumstances, using some creativity and compassion, a little accountability, and a connection to a community that cares, we can turn any day into a healthy one.

It’s what the WLC community stands for—healthy in any circumstance. We all face hardship at times. How we continue to use the healthy mindset to make small, daily choices is what makes us who we are.

By participating in the Whole Life Challenge, you’re taking a huge step towards a healthy diet that suits you, an exercise and movement routine that fits your life, and a practice of personal well-being that keeps you calm and present in every moment.

Join the Challenge. We’ll help you find your healthy place.

Michael Stanwyck is the co-founder of The Whole Life Challenge, an idea that developed during his seven years as a coach and gym manager at CrossFit Los Angeles.

He graduated from UCLA with a BA in philosophy as well as a degree from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, and feels food is one of the most important parts of a life - it can nourish, heal, and bring people together.

Michael believes health and well-being are as much a state of mind as they are a state of the body, and when it comes to fitness, food, and life in general, he thinks slow is much better than fast (most of the time). Stopping regularly to examine things is the surest way to put down roots and grow.

He knows he will never be done with his own work, and believes the best thing you can do for your well-being starts with loving and working from what you’ve got right now.
