100 Days of Health
The Health Promotion Team in Halifax is thrilled to invite the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and supporting Defense Team members to be part of something super exciting!! We are launching a 2018 Health and Wellness Challenge that is BIGGER and BETTER than ever…it will take place over 100 days.
 
Why 100 days?
 
100 days is an adequate amount of time required to ingrain and maintain new healthy behaviours AND it also coincides with the 12 Wing Shearwater celebrating its 100th Anniversary!
 
Implementation of workplace challenges such as 100 Days of Health have been shown to improve physical and mental health, while emphasizing social support and having fun through interactive competition.
 
All members of the CAF and the supporting Defense Team who register, will commit to one- hundred (100) days of pre-set healthy behaviours and will then have the opportunity to;
  • Accumulate points to become eligible for some exciting prizes;
  • Gain self-awareness about their current health behaviors;
  • Learn many recommendations for nutrition; active living and injury prevention; social wellness; and addiction awareness; and
  • Positively influence their overall health for future years ahead.

Additional details about the challenge, including how to register are listed below!
 
Remember there is no day like the present to start making small lifestyle changes that will have a huge impact on your health.
