We have a series of challenges for your mind, body and spirit. We know that they are all connected and that if your mind, body or spirit is out of balance that they can affect the others.
The challenges have been designed to help support you and encourage positive thoughts, a healthy body and connection with others. A chance to try something new in 2022.
Challenge yourself! Try something New in 2022
Challenge 1: Just 5
Why not take five whole minutes to yourself to just sit and be in the present moment. You don't have to do anything. You could look out of the window or take stroll round the garden. It could be done anywhere and it's just fives minutes everyday for 22 days.
Challenge 2: Digital Downtime
Could you limit your use of technology? Maybe reduce the number of hours you spend on Social Media? Sometimes too much tech can affect your mood and behaviours so giving yourself a break or cut off time is proven to help with your wellbeing.
Challenge 3: Move
The Wellbeing Festival is an opportunity to re-introduce moving into your life and make it as important a part of your day as brushing your teeth.
By movement we mean sustained and continual movement for at least 30 minutes.
If 30 minutes is physically too challenging, start with 10 minutes and build up in increments of 5 mins each day. The important part of this challenge is keep moving and move every day. Click here for tips by James Grier (Warehouse Projects Director) 'Running Religion', it's inspirational!
Challenge 4: Parkrun
Parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around the world. They are Saturday morning 5K runs that take place in parks and open spaces. On Sunday mornings, there are 2k junior park runs for children aged four to 14.
Parkrun is a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience where there is no time limit and no one finishes last. Everyone is welcome to come along, whether you walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate. Click here for all you need to know to join a parkrun.
Challenge 5: Hydrate
There are many benefits to drinking water, such as; boosting skin health, regulating blood pressure or maintaining your digestive system. Ideally we'd consume at least 2 litres of water a day. Try adding water somewhere in your day. Choose a time, even if you can manage just 1 glass. It's easy to check your hydration levels. Click here to access a chart to test your own hydration levels.
