It’s January 2017! You know what that means. Resolutions! The time when many people think about goals for the upcoming year. Many people have health & wellness goals at the beginning of the year but end up less motivated as the year goes by. You know how it is, gyms are full the second week of January, but less busy in February.
We want 2017 to be different! Setting and achieving physical activity goals can improve the mental and physical well-being of individuals with lived experience, their family members, and even mental health providers. This calendar can help you set and stick to your goals. Designed to help you think about physical activity differently, this calendar will challenge you to identify activities that you enjoy, find free or low-cost resources in your community, and identify people who will help you stay motivated to achieve your goals.
We encourage fitness and recreation facilities to put this calendar up in the lobby to remind patrons that physical activity has positive impacts on your body, mind, and spirit. We hope mental health agencies will use this calendar to motivate consumers and staff to make physical activity a priority. Finally, we hope consumers interested in physical activity will keep this calendar handy and share it with friends and family to make physical activity fun and a part of daily life.
