Maricopa Countyland: Holiday Survival Challenge
November 17 – January 5
It can be the most wonderful time of year. It can also be the most stressful. To help you stay on track (or get on board) with a wellness plan between Thanksgiving and the start of 2015, Wellness Works has designed a 50-day Holiday Survival Challenge.
Similar to the iconic board game Candyland, Maricopa Countyland requires minimal reading and strategy skills; players just need to follow directions. It’s easy!
The challenge is designed for individuals to complete a series of wellness activities in the color-coded categories of stress reduction, nutrition, physical activity, and well-being. Using the Maricopa Countyland game board, players move from one colored square to another, selecting and completing one activity from each category for every day of the challenge.
Everyone who completes the 50-day Holiday Survival Challenge is a winner. However, the department with the highest percentage of participation will earn bragging rights as the team winner of Maricopa Countyland.
To sign up for the Holiday Survival Challenge, register through Survey Monkey. When you register, you will give your department credit for participating and have the opportunity to sign up for weekly holiday survival tips.
We are also encouraging you to take photos, and/or post your accomplishments to our Facebook page, Maricopa County Wellness Works.
Do You Know Your Stress Level?
Wellness Works encourages you to assess your stress to identify your current level of stress and to take five minutes out of your day to address your stress with proven stress reduction techniques. The assessment is anonymous; you will receive your stress score and its interpretation after completing the assessment.
