Staff Wellness→ Fall Challenge

 pile on the miles

 

  • Registration: Tuesday September 7, 2021
  • Start Date: Monday September 13, 2021
  • End Date: Tuesday December 21, 2021 (100 days!!)

Walking can reduce your risk for chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and more.  A walk every day can reduce depression, strengthen bones, balance and even reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease.  We hope that by participating in the Pile on the Miles Challenge you may incorporate a daily walk into your lifestyle.

How many of us have started a weight loss or fitness journey just to give up a few weeks or days in? Well Aware is challenging you to take this opportunity to start and set a healthy habit! Habits are essential to our health. They can make or break your chances of achieving and maintaining our lifestyle goals such as sticking to an eating plan, exercising regularly, and managing diabetes/other medical conditions, along with increasing quality of life and promoting longevity

This fall, Well Aware is challenging you to choose your challenge. Determine your goal of 100, 200 or 300 miles walked in 100 days. This is a big goal, but day by day it is attainable! The goal of this challenge is to show you that physical activity doesn’t need to be complicated. Something as simple as a daily brisk walk can help you live a healthier life.

Setting a habit like walking daily is much easier if you have an accountability team to help you stay on track. Teams can work together to encourage healthy habits, and support each other through this Pile on the Miles challenge.

Interested in participating independently? That’s fine too! Follow the hashtag #mcpstaffwellness on twitter for challenge pictures, inspiration, and healthy tips.
