Midway through week two I have already made changes that will positively impact my life.
My personal goal was to give up caffeine. I drank up to four red bulls a day and countless cups of coffee. I slowed down my consumption as soon as I heard about our wellness challenge and by the time it started I was able to completely replace it with water only. I plan to make this a permanent change!
My personal goal in week two was eight hours of quality sleep. This one seemed impossible in my mind. I work two jobs and I am a single parent. Less then five hours a night seemed to settle with my body. I thought it felt normal. I had tried more in the past with negative results. I often felt shaky and nauseous. With the caffeine gone I tried again. Six hours but poor sleep. I posted on our group page for support. I received some great advice from our awesome coworkers and eight hours became a reality.
My mood drastically improved. I have more energy and motivation to complete daily activities. I am grateful for this challenge.
I have wanted to make changes in my life but it is tuff when you are the only one. Doing this as a team even if your goals are different you can all relate and support one another. My wellness goals will continue well after this challenge ends. This will be life changing for me!
