THE STRONG CHALLENGE: Week 2: PLAY

Week 2: PLAY

Your STRONG Challenge continues by rediscovering Play! Research affirms that we are STRONGER when we are having fun; remember the number of times in a day you laughed as a kid? Remember feeling invincible? What about now?
 

PLAY ON! TAKING THIS STEP IS A DECLARATION AGAINST BOREDOM AND GLOOM.

ACCOUNTABILITY

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!
