With the New Year still fresh in everyone’s minds, health and wellness are common topics of conversation. Maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is essential to happiness and longevity, so it’s easy to see why so many New Year’s resolutions are centered around physical fitness.
Consistently following a fitness plan can be extremely difficult, however. That’s why the fitness challenge developed by our onsite Wellness Director, Shawn Reece, has been so integral to our residents’ success.
The challenge begins with an effective step-by-step guide for realizing fitness goals, customized to fit each resident’s current physical condition and needs.
Many southeastern life plan communities also have teams of residents participating in the fitness challenge, which utilizes a healthy spirit of competition and camaraderie to help people stay motivated. It culminates in an end-of-year celebration, where winners earn recognition, bragging rights and an array of prizes, such as iPads and gift cards.
The fitness challenge is an integral part of helping our residents fulfill the Social aspect of the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. It gives residents a sense of connection and belonging, as well the chance to develop a community-support system.
The Eight Dimensions of Wellness are about more than having six-pack abs or training for a marathon. Rather, they are designed to help people find happiness by striking a healthy balance in vital aspects of their lives.
