Interested in doing a wellness challenge? Read this to reset your wellness in 2 weeks.
Much like life, our positive habits ebb and flow. At times we feel so balanced and in control…at other times we can feel anything but. That’s life! But positive habits are a part of the larger picture of our holistic wellness, so when we’re not feeling our best, it is time to reevaluate where we can find the motivation to make a change or begin again.
Wellness is a broad term, because it’s all-encompassing. It is physical: the health of our bodies inside and out, from our strength and mobility to digestion, immune system function, nervous system regulation, brain and heart health… Wellness is also emotional and mental: our ability to handle stress and anxiety, mindset and mental health.
Wellness accounts for so many things, and is clearly so important that our life literally depends on it (though I can’t take credit for that clever statement – it’s the Art of Healthy Living’s slogan!).
So how do you know when your overall wellness needs a reset? If you are a human living in modern times, own a cell phone and have access to social media, then odds are you may be in need of a reset. In today’s rat race mindset, complete with incessant pings and notifications, and endless news headlines blaring the world’s latest atrocity, our nervous systems are chronically stuck in fight or flight mode.
This puts a serious toll on all the body’s functions and as a result, can negatively impact your wellbeing.
So – how do you safeguard your health and overall wellbeing? There are many ways, and the answer is not a one-size-fits-all. But the core focus for your wellbeing is a hearty blend of physical movement, mindset support, and nutrition to fuel both mind and body.
Enter: A Wellness Reset Challenge!
Have you ever considered doing a mind-body reset? Or maybe you’re wondering what this entails (if so, keep reading).
The beauty of a challenge is that it motivates you. The set time period helps you keep going, because you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, which makes it feel more realistic than something like “I’ll never eat unhealthy again for the rest of my life” (not so realistic).
Whether you have an existing wellness routine that you’d like to deepen, or if you feel ready to create one, this wellness reset challenge is for you.

Regardless of where you are on your wellness journey, the key ingredients for optimizing your wellbeing are simplicity and consistency. If it’s too complicated, odds are you simply won’t do it. And if you’re inconsistent with your level of commitment, it’s not sustainable because you’re not setting yourself up for success.

How To Get The Most Out Of This Wellness Challenge
Start with the introduction video. It will share how to approach the challenge along with great advice from the teachers on how to get the most out of it. When you’re ready, simply press play on Day 1 and you are on your way!
You can choose to commit to doing each day’s class at the same time if that works best for you. Another option is to schedule the time each day depending on your other commitments. As long as you are consistently showing up each day, that is the top priority!
Consistency is paramount to long-term wellbeing. We know that it might seem daunting to add yet another obligation to your schedule. But it’s like the old adage says: “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.”
Don’t worry! You don’t actually need to meditate for an hour each day! The moral is that it’s important that we all take the time to go inward each day. Whether it’s a quick meditation or a few minutes spent stretching or going on a walk, it all counts! And it all adds up towards our total wellbeing.
This revitalizing wellness challenge will initiate a reset for your health-focused routine. It guides you in cultivating a daily mindfulness routine that includes yoga, meditation, and healthy eating. Mindfulness is the act of being fully present in the moment and engaged in the task at hand. With consistent practice, mindfulness can contribute to reducing anxiety and depression, enhancing concentration, and refining your capacity to stay fully present – invaluable in today’s fast-paced world.
