No matter what your goal is, losing weight or building muscle mass, playing more and destressing, the Active Lifestyle Challenge can help you achieve it.

 

 

 

Instructions

Be Active. Have fun.

The CSI Employee Wellbeing Active Lifestyle Challenge promotes physical activity, good nutrition, and emotional wellbeing -- because it takes mind, body and spirit to lead a healthy lifestyle. Sign up for the six-week program to help you maintain or improve your health and wellbeing.

Our challenge begins Monday, September 10 and ends Friday, October 19.

REGISTER/REPORT PROGRESS

Register online to participate and report weekly progress. Mark that you "completed" your week or, if you're proud of your progress, add your weekly totals and report them to earn incentives and final rewards. We will have a mid-challenge incentive and a completion reward from your Wellbeing Program at the end of the 6 weeks.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITES

A healthy life is an active life. Youth (6-17 years old) need to be active at least 60 minutes a day (or 11,000 steps for girls and 13,000 steps for boys). Adults (18 and older), 30 minutes (or 8,500 steps). Get your heart pumping and your muscles moving. When you've logged six weeks of physical activity, congratulations. You've started a regular routine for a more active lifestyle. Record your progress on the Activity Journal.

GOOD NUTRITION

Start eating healthy. It's easier than you think! Take it one step at a time. Commit to achieving our spring healthy goals each week. Focus on your healthy eating and remember, the more often you incorporate good nutrition and hydration into your lifestyle, the better you will feel.

EMOTIONAL WELLBEING

Work and life balance are key to emotional health. Take time for family, friends, art and leisure. Turn off computers and cell phones and get outside to garden, play with pets, bike or play sports. Get a good night's sleep, volunteer, laugh well and often, and wash your hands at least five times a day. All these activities will earn points in this challenge. Find ideas & points for activities and behaviors on the Move, Eat, Live form.
