Welcome to the Weekly 50.  Every week we will set forth a challenge that is simple but meant to get you focused on improving your health and lifestyle.  You may surprise yourself with what you can do.  You may even learn something along the way.  Our hope is that you learn something about yourself. 

From pushups to sleep habits to connections with social media, the challenges are meant to keep health a priority in your life. Complete the challenges among friends, within teams, or on your own.  Find the challenge greater than your comfort level? Cut it in half.  Find the challenge far too easy? Double it.  Centering the challenges around “50” makes adjustments easy and customizable.

Weekly challenges will always come with a pearl or two about how to re-envision your approach to your lifestyle.  Although primarily geared toward young adults, most adults will find the challenges and pearls engaging as well! Think you are up for the Weekly 50 challenge?

#weekly50… with the holidays upon us, social connection is critical for all of us. Taking the next 25 days, can you send 2 texts daily to others letting know you are simply thinking of them? Acknowledging others makes their day, and yours.

#weekly50 ... positive psychology at its best! Can you write down, think through, or partner with someone to go through 3 Good Things every day? Could you do it for the next 50 days? https://youtu.be/OYMQYhey08w via @YouTube

#weekly50…Social connection with others is imperative to our well being. When’s the last time you received a handwritten note? Take some time this week and send 5 handwritten notes. Not only will you feel good about it, you’ll make someone else’s day deepening your connection.

#weekly50… Yoga has multiple benefits: flexibility, balance, stress reduction, social connection. Can you take 50 minutes this week for some yoga? Whether enjoying some time alone or with others, its a great way to exercise and bring those stress levels down!

#weekly50… Our vasculature (aka blood vessels) are the super highways in our body. They carry all of the absorbed nutrients (or toxins) that we take in throughout our body. Find 50 minutes this week to reflect on what you take in. How can you improve?

#weekly50… Melatonin (your sleep hormone) is suppressed by blue light emitted from screens. Try to keep your bed time routine free of screens, especially if you have a hard time falling asleep! Can you spend 50 minutes prior to sleep “screen free” this week?
