One of the core messages of MiniNutrition is to accept who you are at the moment without comparison — a little tricky when participating in a competition. This is why I wanted to bring it to light at the beginning of the challenge. Walk the Rock is a challenge first and foremost. The competition is an added bonus. The intention of this event is to inspire you to incorporate movement into your life for a healthy body and mind.
STOP: Set Your Intention
Before you scroll down and look at the scores, take a moment to reflect on the reason, beyond the competition, that you decided to register for this challenge. This intention should be your priority throughout the challenge and after. I ask you to do this because external motivators may get your started, but intrinsic motivation will keep you going.
Tips to Tackle Week 2
1. Reflect on how you feel at the end of the day. Does movement make you feel better, sleep more soundly, or make you happier? Connecting with how you feel (intrinsic motivation) will aid you in establishing habits more than any other motivator.
2. Take a mini walk. If you don’t have the time to take a long walk, schedule a few short walks throughout the day. A 10 minute walk will give you around 1,000 steps.
3. Go the extra mile. Choose a parking spot farthest from the entrance, take the long route to your destination, or do a lap around the grocery store before you put anything in your cart. I’m sure many of you have heard this before, but it’s time to put it into action.
Bonus Challenge: Bring a trash bag with you on one of your walks and spend a little time picking up the litter in the area. Don’t forget to snap a picture to submit with your weekly totals.
We loved seeing all the smiling team photos coming in from last weeks challenge.
