Hope your weekend was spectacular and full of healthy eats, feel good inspiration and LOTS OF LOVE. I actually binge watched Big Little Lies on Saturday night. I really wasn’t planning on it, but I couldn’t stop watching! Anybody else obsessed?

Now… onto a little exciting project we’ve been working on over at Healthy Glow Co. called the #GlowGoodChallenge in partnership with Blue Diamond Almonds!


 

MY OTHER RECIPES

So what is the #glowgoodchallenge exactly?

The challenge involves 4 weeks of daily prompts that are meant to motivate you to make meaningful small changes with everyday activities inspired by the calendar below! It’s completely free and meant to be a fun personal challenge. 

Our goal is to help you feel good from the inside out, so we’ll be tackling topics related to mind, body and relationships and building new habits along the way. It’s simple: by posting every day, you’ll be reminded to take time for yourself, improve your relationship with your mind and body and also to appreciate others/what’s around you!

When we co-founded Healthy Glow Co., we knew we wanted the #HGCcommunity to be different. While it’s important to us to continue providing inspiring content and delicious recipes, we want to encourage you to take action in your own life to move you closer to a balanced, fulfilling lifestyle that’s ultimately defined by YOU!

We believe that small shifts add up to big results, and that incorporating new behaviors can be a catalyst for positive change in other areas of your life. That’s exactly why Blue Diamond Almonds’ “Get Your Good Going” message served as the perfect inspiration for our 4 core challenge themes:

Get Goal-Oriented – goal setting helps you visualize where you are and where you want to be. It’s also key to establishing new habits! These daily prompts will help keep you focused and organized.

Get Your Day Going – it’s no secret that your mornings can either set you up for success or leave you feeling frazzled. These daily prompts will give you stability and satisfaction in your morning routine.

Get Active – in true Healthy Glow Co. fashion, we’ll be encouraging you to move and fuel your body in ways that feel good. These daily prompts will be fun and energizing.

Get Connected – being present and building relationships (with ourselves and others) are important for our mental wellbeing. These daily prompts will encourage you to feel more grounded and connected to those around you.

HOW TO FOLLOW ALONG:

Each day, we’ll be posting a prompt on the Healthy Glow Co.’s Instagram (be sure to follow us here!) and asking you to share right alongside us using the hashtag #glowgoodchallenge. Use the challenge calendar above as a reminder to check in daily! Each word captures the spirit of the daily challenge; use it simply as a photo prompt or as encouragement to complete the call to action we’ll be including with our Instagram posts. 

GIVEAWAY TIME!

We’ll be following the #glowgoodchallenge hashtag and each time it’s used in conjunction with a daily photo prompt or challenge activity, you will earn an entry to receive one free ticket to an upcoming retreat we have planned in Colorado towards the end of the summer!

We’re limiting this event to a super tight-knit group to keep the community vibe going and though we aren’t quite ready to release the agenda yet, trust us when we say there will be plenty of laughs, eating/cooking together and enjoying outdoor activities in the beautiful sunshine! We will be choosing ONE lucky winner from this challenge to join us!
