Whether you are looking to make changes in your own life or want to lend a voice to create change for the greater good, you can grow towards a healthier, safer and more thriving life by participating in the award-winning 31-Day Challenge. The 31-Day Challenge is a daily text or email notification to encourage you to try new ways to live well each day for a month. Each daily notification will offer a Healthy, Safe or Thriving themed call-to-action, along with resources from Live Well San Diego Recognized Partners and County of San Diego programs related to the challenge. Sign up with friends to live well together!
The January Live Well San Diego 31-Day Challenge will start on January 1, 2018 and is focused on New Year's Resolutions.
Participating in the challenge is a positive way to start the year and learn more about ways to live well every day. You can opt-in to receive the challenges via a daily text or email or you can download an .ics calendar file that can be added to the calendar on your mobile phone or computer in lieu of or in addition to receiving a daily text or email.
This year we have added a 31-Day Resolutions Challenge checklist to help you better plan your day and make time to complete each challenge.
“I encouraged my family to eat more vegetables, volunteered at Feeding San Diego, made a doctor's appointment and many others!”
“It was a good incentive and fun to do it with my team.”
“Each [challenge] has been helpful in keeping 2017 positive and moving toward a healthy and balanced future.”
The July Live Well San Diego 31-Day Challenge took place July 1-31, 2017 and was designed to help residents increase their physical activity and activate their fitness goals towards a healthier, safer and more thriving life. Participants received a daily notification via email, text or Google calendar offering a fitness challenge and training tip to help them prepare to run or walk in the Live Well San Diego 5K on July 30, 2017.
If you are planning to participate in a 5K, we welcome you to take the Challenge anytime of year by downloading the Fitness Calendar and Log Sheet. The training schedule outlined in the Fitness Calendar and Log Sheet shows the average time, distance or additional steps you need to complete each day to help get you ready to participate in a 5K in 31 Days. It was developed in partnership with Live Well San Diego Recognized Partners Everywon and Sirius Fitness and the County of San Diego’s Employee Wellness Program.
Participants in the July program were offered pedometers at various June 2017 outreach events to help track their steps. We also scheduled a series of meet-up walks, hikes and bike rides throughout the month of July 2017 to help participants get in their steps and enjoy a workout with others. We hope you'll check back soon to learn more about the next 31-Day Challenge!
The January Live Well San Diego 31-Day Challenge started on January 1 and ended on January 31, 2017 and was focused on New Year's Resolutions. A 14-Day BONUS Challenge was added to the campaign to help support this year's Love Your Heart event held on February 14, 2017.
Residents from all over the county signed up to complete the daily challenges and in the process learned more about ways to live well and improve their heart health with the bonus challenge. Challenges were distributed via a daily text or email. In addition, participants were invited to download a 31-Day Challenge iCal calendar that could be added to their smartphone or computer calendar in lieu of receiving a daily text or email.
