Challenge week 6 - Starts 6/9

This week’s word o’ the week is PICNICS.


BONUS POINTS!!! It takes time to reinforce a new habit and make it a positive lifestyle routine. All new skills take practice. Remember to find time to relax and reduce stress. This week, take 5 bonus points for each day you take at least 20 minutes to relax. Your stress reduction time can be all at once or no less than 5 minutes per session but spaced throughout the day. Stress reduction activities can be anything of your choosing. Repeat an activity you enjoyed last week or try something different. Here are a few ideas: sitting quietly, meditation, prayer, listening to music, a nap, a bath, yoga, stretching, a walk, playing a game, crossword puzzle/word game, crafts, reading a novel.

I am super excited for the challenge. I've been wandering in the land of sodium, processed foods for 10 days and didn't kick my own butt of the the unhealthy funk till 2 days ago. So, I'm excited to participate this week. yay!

BONUS POINTS!!! It takes time to reinforce a new habit and make it a positive lifestyle routine. All new skills take practice. Remember to find time to relax and reduce stress. This week, take 5 bonus points for each day you take at least 20 minutes to relax. Your stress reduction time can be all at once or no less than 5 minutes per session but spaced throughout the day. Stress reduction activities can be anything of your choosing. Repeat an activity you enjoyed last week or try something different. Here are a few ideas: sitting quietly, meditation, prayer, listening to music, a nap, a bath, yoga, stretching, a walk, playing a game, crossword puzzle/word game, crafts, reading a novel.

Fitting in the relaxing part right now. Cuppa coffee, book, new Adam Lambert cd, purring kitty. Great way to start the morning.

BONUS POINTS!!! It takes time to reinforce a new habit and make it a positive lifestyle routine. All new skills take practice. Remember to find time to relax and reduce stress. This week, take 5 bonus points for each day you take at least 20 minutes to relax. Your stress reduction time can be all at once or no less than 5 minutes per session but spaced throughout the day. Stress reduction activities can be anything of your choosing. Repeat an activity you enjoyed last week or try something different. Here are a few ideas: sitting quietly, meditation, prayer, listening to music, a nap, a bath, yoga, stretching, a walk, playing a game, crossword puzzle/word game, crafts, reading a novel.

Challenge Week 6 -- Starts 6/9

BONUS POINTS!!! It takes time to reinforce a new habit and make it a positive lifestyle routine. All new skills take practice. Remember to find time to relax and reduce stress. This week, take 5 bonus points for each day you take at least 20 minutes to relax. Your stress reduction time can be all at once or no less than 5 minutes per session but spaced throughout the day. Stress reduction activities can be anything of your choosing. Repeat an activity you enjoyed last week or try something different. Here are a few ideas: sitting quietly, meditation, prayer, listening to music, a nap, a bath, yoga, stretching, a walk, playing a game, crossword puzzle/word game, crafts, reading a novel.
