Adopting New Good Habits
Hi Fusers! Happy May! What gorgeous spring weather we've been having :) Summer is just around the corner, and let me tell you, I couldn't be happier about that. Today's blogpost is written by our resident guest blogger, Beverly Aabjerg. Enjoy!
Get Ready for More
In April we encouraged everyone to "Just Give Up" one bad habit. Here at The Fuse Fitness, members gave up everything from chocolate to Facebook, kettle corn to junk T.V. With April behind us, the results are in, and most people have kept their promises! Why have Fuse Fitness members been so successful? Is it because they posted their commitment publicly? Or perhaps because they are checking in with each other so frequently. Or maybe because people are encouraged by participating in this challenge with a group rather than struggling alone. Is it "misery likes company" or "the more the merrier", or a bit of both?
If you accepted our April challenge, good for you! Give yourself a pat on the back and keep up the good work. Think about whether or not you might want to continue keeping this "bad habit" out of your life. Look at the pros and cons of continuing to moderate this behavior.
Now in May, we encourage everyone to adopt a behavior that they know will increase their health and/or quality of life. Some ideas Fuse members are thinking about include working out one more day a week, taking yoga classes, meditating everyday, getting a long-avoided physical exam, eating at least four servings of vegetables a day, and drinking green tea. Now is as good a time as any to take hold of your life and do something you know would be good for you.
Don't Go Alone
This challenge is not something you have to do by yourself. Enroll your friends and family to take the challenge with you. Post the challenges on the fridge and check in with each other a couple times a week. Acknowledge and encourage each other. And have fun living well!
Yours in Health,
