Challenge for everyone: Sabbath, "Emotional" Play #18 in the Wellness Champion Playbook.
How to: Remember the Sabbath this month. For every six days take one to relax, reduce stress and praise God. Have your co-workers track their days of rest and what that looked like for them personally (e.g., took a walk, listened to music, journaled, started a Bible study or devotional, etc.).
Consider this: At the end of the month, maybe offer a small gift (e.g., a journal, certificate, etc.) as a "high five" for taking time to rest from the chaos of life. This is also a great way to share self-care ideas and support each other's efforts to take care of our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health.
On Your Own Challenge: Sleep is so important for our mental well-being. It affects every aspect of our day: energy level, mental clarity, mood, etc. – positively and negatively. Unfortunately, sleep can also be one of the more challenging aspects of our health to manage well. This month’s challenge in MoveSpring not only encourages setting a healthy bedtime routine to better prepare for restful sleep, but also REWARDS establishing these recommended steps as a healthy HABIT. This is a great first step to building self-care into your daily life.
