Trojans - we survived our first semester of distance learning but we can do better than survive. Let's use this time to be reminded that we need to take care of ourselves: body, mind, and soul.
We have begun the #Foothill2190Challenge to help each other in this quest.
- It takes 21 days to build or break a habit.
- It takes 90 days to make that habit a lifestyle.
Often the best way to make changes is to have support; sometimes a little competition and accountability does the trick to help us stay on track.
This challenge is designed to help in all those areas.
This is about the WHOLE you - mind, body, and soul.
Maybe you have goals related to exercise or eating habits.
Maybe you want to spend some time meditating or other tools to help feel centered and destressed.
Maybe you are reading a self-help book or working with an online support group.
What ever you are doing or want to do for self-betterment, let others know and share it.
Are you stuck and don't know what to do? Check out other challenge participants and their journey; perhaps you'll find something new to try and inspire you.
So what do we do?
- Start! Maybe you were challenged, or maybe you are just ready to go. Either way, share your announcement with your fellow Trojans and better yet: challenge other teachers, students, staff members, or parents/guardians to join you in the challenge.
- Weekly Updates! Each week post on your own social media an update. This can be as simple as a picture of you in action (or a screen shot from your smart app or tech you are using) and let everyone know what you are up to.
That's it! Challenge your friends and let's do this together!
Be sure to use #Foothill2190Challenge and #WeAreTrojans when you post.
Who's Doing It?
As often as we can, we will share updates here of who is participating and when possible we will ad some of the things they are doing. Maybe you'll find something new to try...
Those challenged by each participant can be found here as well so we can see the growth of our challenge.
