Staff Health Challenge 2018 

The Challenge:

New Twitter tools - Venn (2).png

Pick a goal that you would like to work towards over the next 6 weeks.
This is an independent challenge, each person will pick something that is meaningful to them.
There is NO Sign up Sheet 
Weekly Outlook Forms will be sent out on Friday to track success!
Prizes to be won!

"Health" incorporates our Physical, Social, Mental & Emotional and Environmental Well-being. Choose a health goal that encompasses any of these dimensions (it doesn't have to be a Physical Health Challenge)

Start by asking yourself what would make life feel better.
Maybe it is more sleep, taking time to be with friends, setting aside relaxation time in the day, or to turn your phone off at 8pm.

The Intention: staff work hard all year to give to the schools and communities they are involved in. This is an opportunity to actively set aside time to focus on your health.

The Fun Part:
Results of the OutLook Form submissions will be "posted". Each participate will choose a "challenge name" to use throughout the 6 weeks. Successes will be tallied under this name (no personal names or e-mails will be public)
Draw prizes will be randomly drawn throughout the challenge.
When creating a
goal make sure it if something that you are passionate to achieve.
