What time is it?... It’s Healthy Holidays Challenge time!
We all know that the holidays offer some serious pitfalls for healthy living. Schedules get more hectic, and it's harder to squeeze in healthful meals or exercise sessions. Foods get more calorie-dense and portions get more generous. Plus, all those work potlucks! Most people gain 2-4 lbs. per holiday season; the problem is, they don’t shed them, and after a few years that really adds up. Another thing to consider is our mental well-being, holidays can bring anxiety, stress, and sadness.
A holiday challenge can help us stay on track of healthy habits and provides the support and fun that can help keep us vibrant throughout the season.
This challenge is usually only open to Worksite Fitness+ members, but this year we want to open it up to ALL Cochise County employees. We know how important it is to stay healthy, especially during this season and we want all of you to reap the benefits.
This is a 21-day Challenge and it starts November 25th. We will be tracking steps, water intake, and self-care actions daily. See attached guidelines to know what to expect. There will be weekly drawings for cool prizes.
Are you in?!
How do you enter? Read and sign the Commitment-to-Self form attached, scan and email it to me, I’ll be emailing you support materials including tracking sheets every Monday starting 11/25. Prize drawings will be held by 4:30 pm every Monday during the Challenge.
I hope to hear from all of you! Here’s to happy and healthy holidays!
