It's all about progress: Movement Challenge week four complete

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Benefits

Week four of the Movement Challenge is complete. Have you joined your colleagues on their journey to physical wellness? The challenge ends Oct. 1 — only 10 days remain to help your department rise to the top, either in participation or activity.

The Movement Challenge had an increase in participation of approximately 30 percent from the 2015 challenge. The main purpose of the Movement Challenge is to promote progress, both in each one of us individually and for our campus as a whole. With more people participating, we are meeting the goal of the continual progress of more people getting involved. This year's challenge also has had a steady increase in the overall average daily activity. Congratulations to all of you who are participating.

This week's Movement Challenge focus is on community and engaging your friends and family to make healthy changes in their lives with you. If you aren't participating in the challenge, you can still support your colleagues and friends by cheering them along and ensuring you are a great support system for their physical wellness goals.

Human Capital Services has partnered with the K-State kinesiology department to bring you resources and ideas to help you on your wellness journey. Check out the week five weekly resources for success to learn more about this week's challenge and focus. This week's newsletter has some great ideas of how to nurture your support system.

Don't forget to post to Twitter or Instagram using #purpleisprogess to enter to win a wearable activity tracker. This weekly challenge is to involve your friends and family in your physical wellness activities. Follow @KStateHCS for more information and fun updates.

Week four reporting for the leaderboard closes at noon Tuesday, Sept. 20.
