"Small Change, Big Gain" Wellness Challenge, October 20 – November 30 (6 weeks)
What would you like to improve in your life? In this Challenge, you choose one to two personal goals that you can do, in any realm of wellness, such as getting fit, saving money, becoming more organized, eating differently, being on time, getting more sleep, etc. Make this goal or mircroresolution a pledge you are sure you can keep, thus realistic and limited. For example, if your goal is to "get fit" then commit to walking one day each week. Make your resolution explicit, lay out when, what, how, etc. Making a resolution to "get ready for bed at 9:00 p.m. on nights at home" is a specific personal goal that will help you head to bed on time and hopefully get more sleep. How will this Challenge work?
1. Form a team of two or more people. Choose a captain.
2. Develop one or two personal goals/microresolutions. Include when, what, how, etc.
3. During the Challenge the captain will report in weekly regarding the achievement of the individual goals.
To sign up, contact Wendy Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 5551 and report your team members, team captain and your team's personal goals.
