THE STRONG CHALLENGE: Week 4: REST
Week 4: REST
Your STRONG Challenge continues with finding ways to REST! Chillaxing, naps, a good night’s sleep…REST. It’s something we all need desperately to thrive but ignore its mystical powers. Why does REST always seem to get put on the backburner of our 1000 MPH-paced lives. We all fall victim to not falling asleep at a regular time, ignoring quiet time with meditation or not designating a rest day for our week. This week, we reclaim our health with the power naps, sleeping in, quieting our minds…this week, we REST!

Ideas to get you off the couch and onto a new healthier life. This is how we’ll fight, how we’ll get STRONG.
ON YOUR OWN
Meditate – Unplug for 10 minutes minimum. Do everything you can to lay still, rest your mind and monitor your breathing.
10 Minute walk. Connect with yourself and meditate on thankfulness, forgiveness, the STRONG Challenge!
Take a day, preferably Sunday and DO NOTHING. Rest, chillax, have 5 naps. Kid screen time is totally acceptable while you regroup your life for another week.
Unplug tech for 20 minutes and sit outside. Take in your surroundings. Journal your experience!

Write your goals on the Strong Tracking Sheet (download here) and post them in a prominent place in your home, somewhere that will remind you of your progress and commitment every day. Next, find an accountability buddy or partner who will provide the motivation you’ll need for the next few weeks (this is a critical step). Finally, join the Facebook Community Group (link here) and share your struggles, failures, and success with your new friends!
