Your 14-Day Well-being and Mindfulness Challenge
As budding Detectives, intrepid Explorers and top Secret Agents, we all know that we need to be on top of our game in order to do our best work out in the field. But at this time of year, with shorter days and the year not off to the best of starts, we could all do with a bit of oomph to help us operate at full capacity!
The good news is, we’re here to help you get in tip-top shape, mentally and physically, for your next adventure! You’ve oiled your cogs with our Brain Training Challenge (Missed it? Don’t worry, you can still start here and do it alongside).
Next up is our 14-day Well-Being and Mindfulness Challenge! Choose 14 things to do over the next two weeks and try and do one a day to give you a daily boost and prepare you for seeking and solving Clues!
How will it prepare you?
Exercise and mindfulness activities are a brilliant way to get your neurotransmitters going, with the release of morale-increasing endorphins, mood-boosting serotonin and a dash of dopamine for alertness.
That feel-good feeling you get after completing a well-being challenge? That’s your neurotransmitters hard at work! Not only do endorphins improve your mood, but they also decrease your sensitivity to stress and main too, while serotonin is brilliant for promoting learning and memory.
So, doing something enjoyable, relaxing or new can help you feel refreshed, re-energised and motivated. It can even help change your perspective or mindset – great practise for looking at a tricky Clue from a different angle.
What’s more, taking time out to simply ‘be’ in the present and focus on being aware of yourself and your surroundings not only gives you a break from thoughts of things gone by or future worries but is also great preparation for immersing yourselves in the here and now of your next case, mission or expedition.
What to do…
Everyone’s different when it comes to what they think will challenge them and give them a boost of positivity. So, there are 20 different challenges to choose from – simply pick out 14 that you want to do, can do and feel will most benefit you.
Record your achievements by crossing them off the challenge sheet below, or make your own 14-Day Well-Being and Mindfulness Journal so that you can see how well you’ve done and how much progress you’ve made!
You’re sure to be in the right frame of mind to crack the case, complete the mission or track down that treasure! Get choosing your next adventure and keep a lookout for our Trail Training Part III – Let’s Get Physical coming soon!
