Wow! We are in the last month of the year, which means that it’s the last month of the Happy Healthy Mama Healthy Year Challenge. I started this challenge in January as a way to keep us focused on our health all year long, not just during those first few months of the new year when ambition and motivation are at their peak. I wanted to keep health a priority throughout the year, when New Year’s Resolutions are typically forgotten.
It worked! I kept my health and my family’s health at the forefront of my mind every single month. I focused on a new aspect of health each month. It feels good. Let’s take a quick look at the different challenges we did each month.
January was Cut the Sugar Month
February was the Eat More Plants Challenge
March was the Healthy Sleep Challenge
April was the Move More Challenge
May was the Use Less Plastic Challenge
June was the Gallon a Day Water Challenge
July was the Mindfulness Challenge
August was the 31-Day Smoothie Challenge
September was the Declutter Challenge
October was the Try New Foods Challenge
November was the Healthy Home Challenge
Isn’t it cool to see all the different things we focused on this year? What I found very encouraging was even after the month of the specific challenge was over, it was still on my mind and I continued to focus on it. The month of focus cemented it into my brain. Each challenge has had a cumulative effect and I’ve been more aware of every aspect of my health this year than ever before.
Now let’s take a look at how the November Challenge went and what we are focusing on this month!…
