Calm down for the Holidays Challenge

Jami Dellifield: "Designed to help improve health by exploring ways to simplify during the holidays"

For many, the holiday season is a busy, stressful time of the year, and it’s common for health goals to take a backseat to the celebrations and obligations of the season.

For some tips and ideas to relax and enjoy the holidays in a healthier way this year, Jami Dellifield, family and consumer sciences educator at Hardin County's extension office, has a suggestion.

"Take the Calm Down for the Holidays email wellness challenge for healthy living tips and encouragement to help you make the most of this holiday season," she said.
 
The Challenge is an on-line challenge designed to help participants improve their health by exploring ways to simplify during the upcoming holiday season.

"Messages will include tips to help you find your quiet place, reduce stress, move more, practice mindfulness and gratitude," she said.

"You will also be encouraged to reflect on your current health practices. Do you need a little extra motivation to help you get started? Are you stressed for time and need ideas to help you fit activity into your day? If so, join us for this Challenge."
 
Participants will receive weekly e-communications and have access to additional information on Blogs, Facebook and Wellness Text Messages.
 
Each week participants will receive free weekly e-communications, containing wellness and reflection tips. In addition, a checklist will be available for download to help participants track their progress. Pre- and post- online-survey assessments collect comments to improve future challenges and track participant progress.

Interested in participating in this on-line challenge? Sign up by following this link: http://go.osu.edu/calmhardin18.  Persons will be enrolled and begin receiving e-communications starting the week of Nov. 19.

Participants only need to have an email address to enroll. The program is funded by Ohio State University Extension.
