Building healthy habits to promote overall health and wellness takes time and commitment. While it takes more than 31 days to build a new habit, to get a jump-start, Mayo Clinic Health System invites people 16 or older to join the free, virtual "Fall Into Wellness" challenge during October.
You will learn about various aspects of incorporating health and wellness into daily routines, including:
- Eating well
- Getting enough exercise, sleep and water
- Maintaining good health through prevention
- Eliminating stress
- Discovering passions
When you register, you will be able to download and print a calendar that outlines daily activities and provides a place to track participation. You will earn points every day for getting enough sleep and exercise, drinking enough water and completing a daily activity. Participants will receive weekly options for expanding their daily activities.
The challenge has two tracks:
- Community — This track is for individual participants, families and groups of friends.
- Corporate — This track is for individual participants joining as a team on behalf of the business or organization where they work. A team captain is required.
