Before we jump into this week's challenge - a few reminders:
And now for your regularly scheduled programming....
Did you know that 90 percent of all doctors' office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints, and 43 percent of all adults suffer from adverse health effects due to stress???1
Yet, never fear - nature is here! Research shows that a simple 15-minute walk in nature can decrease up to 16 percent of the stress hormone, cortisol, and it can also reduce your heart rate by up to 4 percent.2 Even looking at pictures of nature for an extended period of time can help reduce stress!
Skip the office lunch in front of your computer and explore the outdoors! If it’s too cold outside, try a conference room. This week’s challenge is to eat your lunch in an unconventional setting and take the time to let the food digest. To spice it up, invite your coworkers and turn lunch into an informal meeting or just a hangout!
To enter Week 2's Challenge, submit your lunch photo to GetFitSD@SDChamber.org by Monday, January 23, 11:59 A.M. The winners will be announced via email, on the website, and within the Get Fit dashboard.
