The idea for this challenge at this particular time in our lives came from two places. Firstly, we are all living in strange, uncertain times that are causing us to be in a constant state of cortisol (stress hormone) stimulation. For some this highly felt and observed, for others it is a low level hum and for others life seems totally normal. We are all experiencing this pandemic differently. And we are all handling it differently. But that does not matter. Even if you are not "feeling stressed" the energy in the world has shifted and is effecting us all individually and collectively.
Which brings us to my second reason for implementing this challenge - our immune systems. Our immune systems are not only being challenged by stress but also by everything we consume. Never before has there been a time where we should be taking the best possible care of our health as humanly possible. Now is the time to eat healthy, sleep well, exercise and rest and renew and yet many people are doing the exact opposite.
So I want to present this 14 day challenge as a time to reset.
Each day you will receive a posting, video or written word, asking you to incorporate some changes (for some) into your life. I am planning to give you at least 2 recommendations in each post. Please take what you can from these posts and store the rest for a rainy day. Do what you can!
