Note: As of January, 2018, we have renamed the “Lifestyle Practices” Habit to “Well-Being Practices.” We did this due to an evolution in our philosophies, and because it’s going to give us room to create a better Challenge experience. Above all, we did it to introduce you to the “Well-Being Mindset.” Follow this link for a complete explanation of the Well-Being Mindset and to watch a video from WLC co-founders.

We often get asked why there are Lifestyle Practices in the Whole Life Challenge. Here is my explanation of why these practices are included, how they make the Challenge a whole life experience, and the benefit they bring to your entire well being.

New Call-to-action

The Lifestyle Practices are designed to have you step back from the chaos of life. They help you experiment with tools that can help you feel more connected to those around you, increase your day-to-day happiness, create awareness of your choices, and ground you in the present. All of these things are equal to or greater in importance than your nutrition and exercise.

Your whole life is bigger than food and fitness. The Lifestyle Practices help you put nutrition and exercise into a bigger perspective of happiness. You are the most important person in your life. The Lifestyle Practices help you see that — and honor it.

Want to learn more about how to make healthy choices while still having a life? Join us for the next Whole Life Challenge. Participating will improve your mind, your body, and your daily habits, leaving you happier, healthier, and in control of your lifestyle. If you’re ready for a change, this is your opportunity.

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.
