Afterglow 30 Day BIG LIFE Challenge!

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

1. YOGA & FITNESS: Commit to elevating your practice in 2017 and aim for 5 classes per week or 20 classes over the 30-day period. Try mixing it up. If you typically do power, try a cool flow. If you stick to yoga, come hustle and sweat in a fitness class or roll, repair and challenge yourself in Mobility Mend.

2. NUTRITION: Your diet affects your mood, your practice, your energy levels, your success. During this challenge, aim to improve at least one meal per day by doing one of the following:

  • Incorporate natural, alive, good quality foods by eating 3 servings of unprocessed fruits and vegetables
  • Incorporate at least 2 anti-oxidant rich or anti-inflammatory superfoods such as avocado, salmon, lentils, blueberries, almonds, walnuts, turmeric, chia seeds, ginger and green leafy vegetables
  • Eat mindfully – Make it a goal to sit down and eat one meal without distractions. Avoid eating while on the run, watching tv or checking your phone. Chew your food slowly and savour.
  • Hydrate with water – For men, drink 13 cups (3 litres) of total beverages a day. For women, drink 9 cups (2.2 litres) of total beverages a day.

3. MINDFUL HABITS: You need both a healthy body and mind to float, flutter and fly in 2017. Mental workouts such as the ones below will help to increase happiness, focus and calm. Aim for at least one of the following exercises per day:

  • Practice mindfulness meditation for 5 minutes
  • Write in a gratitude journal for 5 minutes
