Support Your Team: Lifestyle Practice

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

Comment on 3 Team Reflections Each Day

Simple Instructions:

  • Every day, before you log your daily score, read and comment on at least 3 of your teammates’ reflections.
  • Score yourself for the comments you left on the day you are recording your score
    • e.g. your first day of commenting is Saturday, and whether you record your score Saturday night or Sunday, you will be basing your “yes” or “no” for the Lifestyle Practice category on what you did on Saturday.
  • No banking! You must write at least three responses each day to get credit. Writing six doesn’t earn credit for a day you didn’t do it.
  • Commenting on World Reflections will also count toward your total of 3 comments.

Why Is This Practice Important?

The most successful players in the Whole Life Challenge are the people who lean on their team. Your teammates will become your outside set of eyes, and they’ll provide positive reinforcement for your efforts and successes, leading to better performance.

One of the simplest ways to engage with your teammates, share your successes, ask for help, and give props is on your team’s communication feed. You’ll see this feed every day when you log into the Challenge, making it easy to keep up with (and support) your teammates’ day-to-day efforts.

Counterintuitively, putting your attention on supporting other people will have a profound effect on your success within the Challenge. As you give your teammates encouragement and feedback, you’ll tend to reflect more deeply on your own performance, leading to improvement.

Put simply, engaging with your team will make everyone’s Challenge a better, more successful experience.

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.
