Your fifth Lifestyle Practice, starting Saturday, May 30, is to spend time around food or coffee with a friend, family member, acquaintance, or co-worker each day.
Every day of week 5, you’ll eat a meal, grab a snack, or have a cup of coffee with a member of your social circle. This can be at any time of the day and does not need to be one of the main meals. You can sit down with anyone—even inviting a co-worker to have lunch with you at the last minute checks out! You don’t have to spend a fixed amount of time together, even just ten minutes over a cup of coffee counts.
Just like going to the gym, it’s easy to put it off and assume that you’ll “do it tomorrow.” So as you point your mental energy toward optimal health, don’t fail to include what it’s all for—being able to enjoy the ride along the way. Enjoying time with your tribe can improve your health, and the healthier you are, the more you’ll enjoy doing it. It’s a virtuous cycle.
Each week a special sponsor will help us to make this challenge a little more meaningful. This weeks lifestyle challenge is brought to us by Extreme Endurance. We were lucky enough to have Spencer Murphy come out to the gym a couple weeks ago to sample out some of these amazing products. I know a lot of you were digging what he had to say and purchased either the protein, creatine, hydro-X or the the companies signature product, Extreme Endurance. This weeks lifestyle challenge winner is going to receive a sweet care package!
