May Community and Wellness News

May 2, 2022

Creating new habits is never easy, but did you know that turning a simple behavior into a habit is much easier than a more complicated one? Seems pretty straightforward, right? So why do we often set lofty goals when starting a new health plan and end up overwhelmed and unsuccessful? If you’re tired of this endless cycle, challenge yourself this month by making a few simple lifestyle changes and creating lasting habits for long-term health.

Our PEHP Wellness Program is offering two exciting challenges this month:

Monthly Wellness Challenge 

Move More – Day by Day

Simplify your health goals this National Physical Fitness and Sports month by challenging yourself to a 20-minute walk each day. This small effort can yield big results such as:

  • Lowering blood pressure and cholesterol while improving heart health
  • Improving balance by challenging your nervous system
  • Boosting your mental health
  • Enhancing your memory by increasing blood flow to the brain
