Month: January 2014
Eat more kale! Run every morning! Drop 20 pounds! Carpool every day! Resolutions can be exhausting and really get you down. Did you know, a recent study from Forbes discovered that a mere 8% of Americans keep their New Year’s Resolutions? However, if you find yourself in the 92% majority, have no fear. Your path to personal wellness is still within reach—and it all starts with little steps.
To help get you back on track (or keep you there), throughout February we’ll be sharing a series of wellness tips, ideas and challenges that we hope you join with us on. Don’t worry, we’re not going to be talking about running 50 miles a week or dropping 30 pounds in one year, but you will find a challenge to carve out 5 minutes for yourself to breathe, and other simple ways you can stay true to your goals.
Enter to Win: So are you ready for your first challenge? We want to know what your wellness pledge is. Let us know what you want to accomplish in 2014 so that you can be healthier and hopefully happier. Make sure it’s realistic and true to you.
Starting today, through February 28th, share your wellness pledge with us on Twitter, and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win a 30 day supply of HONEST Tea or wristband! All you have to do is tweet your pledge to @HonestTea and tag it with #MyWellnessPledge, and you’re set. To help you think of that pledge we’ll leave you with a little inspiration from Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu: “The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.”
Mark Twain once said, “I can live for a year on a good compliment.” We believe he was on to something. There’s a lot of messages out there being shared, and few of them positive–so we’re hoping to change that with a simple, honest compliment.
No, we’re not reinventing the wheel, but we believe in the power of words and that a little encouragement can go a long way. We’d love your help in getting there.
Join us for a Twitter party on January 23rd where we’ll explore the impact of sharing an #honestcompliment with someone. We’ll be sharing interesting stats, insights from our featured panelists, and of course plenty of giveaways throughout the hour!
Here’s the skinny:
