Can you believe we are already on the last day of week 1 for our #platinumhealthchallenge ? Which means it is almost raffle time! This week’s raffle… a $50 gift card to WholeFoods!

For Day 7 we are back to focusing on a healthy mind… On Monday you did 5 min, now you are ready to level up to 10! Meditate for 10 minutes. 

Again, feel free to meditate using any technique you like, but a basic meditation is outlined for your reference below: 

Sit up tall with your spine straight, either in a chair or on the floor. You could also do a walking meditation if sitting is troublesome for you. Close your eyes or just gaze softly downward. Breathe slowly and fully through your nose. As thoughts go through your mind, return your focus to the sensation of your breathing. Set a timer so you know when you’re done, or try a guided meditation via a meditation app.

Health Challenge Day 4:  No Added Sugar

Health Challenge Day 4: No Added Sugar

Everyone feeling limber from your spinal mobility? Now imagine if you did that every day! You would be a new person.

For Day 4 we are moving in the the nutrition side of our challenge with… No added sugar.

What counts as added sugar? Anything where the sugar doesn’t come naturally with the food. So fruit is approved, however adding sugar or honey to your coffee is not.

Be sure to check out your nutrition labels. You might find yourself surprised by how much sugar is in seemingly healthy items you eat every day. People are often surprised by how much sugar is in salad dressings, smoothies and other pre-made “health drinks”, bread, cereal, milk, yogurt, and even supplements. If you find your supplements have added sugar, let us know and we can recommend some higher quality options for you.
