About the challenge

We are launching a Spring Into Wellness Challenge to help you keep healthy which is especially important as people are quarantined or self-isolating. Eating right and being active can help improve your mental health.  Exercise is a natural anti-anxiety treatment and releases endorphins to help improve your mood. Eating right can help keep your body strong to fight off diseases.

During this challenge you will have 5 daily goals to achieve.

1.  Be active
2.  Drink 8 glasses of water
3.  Choose whole grains
4.  Eat more fruits and veggies
5.  7-9 hours of sleep

Challenge yourself and your family to join in the fun to help keep healthy.

Practice Good Hygiene

Wash your hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching your face. Self-isolate if you are feeling sick.       

Practice Physical Distancing 

Avoid crowded places and non-essential gatherings.  Avoid common greetings such as handshakes, limit contact with people at higher risk, and keep a distance of 2 arm’s length from others.                

Avoid too much exposure to news

Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories. It can be upsetting to hear about the crisis and see images repeatedly. Try to do enjoyable activities and return to normal life as much as possible and check for updates between breaks.
